If you can afford the €645 000 price tag for an 918 Spyder, chances are you won’t blink an eye at whatever Porsche is asking for its 911 Turbo S ‘Edition 918 Spyder’, which is being offered exclusively to those that place an order for its upcoming plug-in hybrid supercar. As you would expect, production of the special edition 911s is limited to 918 units worldwide.
The limited edition 911 Turbo S series is cosmetically inspired by the 918 Spyder and will be available in both coupe and convertible body styles. While keeping the standard model’s 390 kW-strong flat-six turbo intact, the special edition gets distinctive acid green features such as the brake calipers, specific and part-embroidered model logos and seams, the instrument cluster needles, the bespoke PCM screen and illuminated door entry guards.
In the special edition, the 911 Turbo S’ standard equipment is complemented by an enhanced leather interior, a special instrumentation version and additional carbon elements both inside and out. In addition, there’s a limited edition badge on the glove compartment lid that bears the same number as the 918 Spyder the customer has ordered, while the two cars can be finished in the same exact color.
Porsche USA’s suggested retail prices for the 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder Coupe and Cabriolet versions are the same as the standard Turbo S models, which means anyone is South Africa could expect to pay R2.16- and R2.26-million respectively. First deliveries of the 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder will commence in June 2011.
