The first Sports Cars are considered to be (though the term would not be coined until after World War One) the 3 litre made in 1910 Vauxhall 20 hp (15 kW) and 27/80PS Austro-Daimler (designed by Ferdinand Porsche).

Porsche will produce 918 of its 762-horsepower, 552 pound-feet torque 918 Spyder hybrid and of these about 20-percent will be Race Track versions of the carbon-bodied supercar.



The car is scheduled to go on sale Sept. 18, 2013 (9/18) and buyers are expected to pay a premium over the projected $845,000 entry level price to have Porsche remove interior items and delete the paint for a weight savings of about 67 pounds (30 kg).



The Spartan approach to marginally improved performance is a time-honored Porsche tradition, and perhaps this will help the “less than 1700” pound (3,748 pound) – and still not especially light – Race Track version keep up with the also anticipated 920 horsepower Ferarri Enzo hybrid.



Both cars use electric motors to augment drive through multi-speed transmissions. Ferrari will use a V12 and Porsche will use forced induction for its V8.



Porsche has said by the time the 9/18 date rolls around, it will have taken orders for 90 percent of the 918 Spyder’s total limited production run.
