Mark Webber Takes Delivery of His Personal 918 Spyder

A short news item from Porsche celebrating the delivery of Mark Webber’s personal 918 Spyder, just in time for his 39th birthday on 27th August 2015.

Webber’s car, chassis #605/918, features the iconic ‘Salzberg Racing’ livery worn by the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans winning 917K. Standard in the lightweight ‘Weissach Pack’ fitted to this car is a full-body wrap which would otherwise contribute 2.3 kg of the total 41 kg stripped out of the standard car. Interestingly Mark’s opted to forgo that saving by having one of the available wrap schemes painted on his car instead.

The last Porsche 918 Spyder has been built

After 21 months of production, the 918th and last Porsche 918 Spyder has been built.

The 918 Spyder was systematically developed to be a performance hybrid with plug-in technology. The hybrid super sports concept car made its debut at the 2010 Geneva International Motor Show where it met with overwhelming approval. In the summer of 2010, the Supervisory Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG gave the green light for its production development. When the car was launched on the market in late 2013, the 918 Spyder represented a continuation of a series of super sports cars in Porsche history. As technology pioneers they were, without exception, among the ultimate sports cars of their respective decades: the 904 Carrera GTS, the 959, the 911 GT1 and the Carrera GT.
