How much did the Porsche 918 Spyder cost when new?
The Porsche 918 pricing started at €781,000 in Europe and US$845,000 in the U.S. Clearly that was base price and options were added on top. We have seen cars with $150,000 in options and even $63,000 custom paint jobs (Liquid Metal Paint). The Weissach package was another $84,000 also.
How much does the Porsche 918 Spyder cost now?
The market for the Porsche 918 Spyder has been healthy in recent years. We have seen cars in the $1.1 million to $1.7 million dollar range. At auction, most cars sell above asking and with Porsche still offering servicing and support, we expect that the market prices for the Porsche 918 will stay well above $1 million for the foreseeable future and start to push the $2 million mark for prime examples.
How many Porsche 918 Spyders were made?
During the 918s 21-month production run, Porsche built a total of 918 units. Although production went from 2013 to 2015, all 918 Spyder cars were designated at 2015 model year cars. We were not able to find the exact split between base cars and Weissach optioned cars, but most sources suggest as many as 25% of all 918 Spyders came with the Weissach options.
Is the Porsche 918 a road legal production car?
Yes it is. Those of you remembering the days of Bill Gates smuggling a 959 into the U.S need not fret, the Porsche 918 Spyder was designed, tested, and legalized as a street-legal road car all over the world.
