l for HD images, and the full story. I allow no modifications of my work
I call it the 2013 Porsche 918-LH Spyder (GT1). I chose 918-LH because the
model number 918, is reminiscent of 917, (hence the 8), so I decided to add
a reminiscent LH model number. Since the 918-LH wouldnt be able to race in
the same class the 917 did (that class is non-existent), Porsche may decide
to place it in the GT1 class. The 918 Spyder comes with 2 electric motors,
and a 500hp V8 from the RS Spyder LMP-2 car. The 918-LH Spyder will drop
the electric motors, but will retain the KERS, and 500hp V8. Since GT1
regulates no more than 600hp, Porsche may remove air-restrictors from the
engine to Boost the output to 600hp.
The 918-LH Spyder will top out in the 200mph range, and will reach 62mph in
less than 3.0 seconds, possibly 2.8 seconds. The weight will be around
1,240 kilos, 2,730 lbs. The weight loss will come from the loss of the
batteries, stripped interior and loss of amenities, even more extensive use
of carbon fiber, and a reconstruction of body-work.
Changes in the body work will come from a wider track, redesigned front and
rear diffusers, as well as a fixed hard-top roof. There will be a very
large rear spoiler; the current one will be fixed. The ram air scoops
positioned over the 600hp V8 will be permanently opened for even more
delivery of power. The 918-LH Spyders headlight system will receive a minor
revision as well as the taillights. It will also get new mirrors positioned
over the front-wheels straight from the Carrera GT.
If the 918-LH Spyder does become a reality, it will likely debut at the
2013 24hrs of Le Mans, as well as in the Le Mans Series.
As well as rendered bodywork, I also took the time took the time to render
several liveries reminiscent of 70s 917 designs. I currently have a few
rendered, one also for "TeamSpeed.com", I'm working on a few now, and will
post them later.
*Note; All vehicles are liveried according to 2013 speculated Le Mans 24
