Porsche 918 Spyder Models Colorado Springs CO
The Porsche 918 Spyder models were known as “hypercars” when they first debuted at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Only 918 of these Porsche models were built from 2013 to 2015 and have since gone on to be one of the most sought-after ranges of vehicles on the market. The Porsche 918 Spyder is a plug-in hybrid supercar that broke the 7-minute barrier at the Nürburgring in Germany and is remembered as starting a new era for sports cars.

With Porsche halting production of the 918 Spyder in 2015, the asking price of a pre-owned model has drastically increased over the years, with top asking prices exceeding $1.6 million. When the Porsche 918 Spyder first joined dealership lots in 2013 it started off at a manufacturer suggested retail price of $845,000. Additional package options were available for the 918 Spyder at an added cost (Weissach package for $84,000 and Liquid Metal paint for $63,000) that often pushed the new-model price up to $1 million.
