It's only been a few days since we brought out a series of spy shots of the upcoming 918 Spyder wearing a very cool Martini Racing livery, and today it's time for another testing session. Judging by the photos, this prototype was testing somewhere in Spain, and lucky for us, our spy photographers were able to take some pretty cool images of the interior, as well as more shots of the cool "Martini Hippie" livery previously used in the 917 race cars.
The first thing we noticed is the enormous center console that seems to be inspired by the console found in the Carrera GT, but it also gets a large LCD screen in the middle. A few dials and control interfaces are visible below the screen, but it's clear that the large screen will be a touch screen.
Porsche has tried to keep everything camouflaged, but it's also obvious there will be plenty of carbon fiber used for the upcoming supercar's interior. Spy shots also reveal a red indicator that shows what gear the car is in and a few gauges that help the driver be in control of his vehicle. The sports seats also reveal the "918 Spyder" logo stitched into the headrest, but we bet the final product will look completely different. The tachometer appears to have a 9000rpm redline, and the word "Charge" also appears on it, while aluminum paddles complete the look.
As a reminder, the 918 Spyder will be powered by a 570 HP 4.7 liter V8 engine combined with two electric motors. The front motor is rated at 107 HP and the rear motor at 121 HP. With nearly 800 HP, the supercar will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and will go up to a top speed of over 200mph.
2014 Porsche 918 Spyder spied in Martini Racing Livery
The worst-kept secret in the industry. Porsche whets our appetite and draws further attention to its 918 hybrid supercar with a Martini Racing sticker kit. It is far more expensive and powerful than any 911; think modern-day Carrera GT. The car is inching toward production and the styling is finalized, although details such as the production taillights are still missing. (We've had a chance to go for a ride in a prototype version of the 918 and found the car to be pretty impressive.) As a bonus, these pictures show two-time rally world champion Walter Röhrl at the wheel; he's not the biggest fan of hybrids. Will the 918 convert him?

2012 Prototype Porsche 918 Spyder in Martini Racing design
PORSCHE 918 SPYDER PROTOTYPE SHOWS ITS SPORTING COLOURS IN ICONIC MARTINI RACING DESIGN
.Porsche 918 Spyder super sports car continues its testing and development programme
.Martini® Racing colour scheme of prototype celebrates the successful partnership between Porsche and the Italian brand
.A Porsche 917 in the distinctive livery of Martini® won the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1971
.Martini® was the official partner of the Porsche factory team between 1973 and 1978, and the colour scheme has become part of motor racing legend
Driving trials of the Porsche 918 Spyder are continuing at high speed, and in the distinctive, sporting livery of Martini®Racing; made famous in the 1970s as the colour scheme of many successful Porsche race cars.
A fundamental element of the testing programme for the plug-in hybrid super sports car -- as is the case in the development process of all Porsche cars -- is the 20.8 km Nürburgring-Nordschleife race circuit. Indeed, a lap time of less than seven minutes 22 seconds around the challenging track in the Eifel region of Germany is one of the development goals of the 918 Spyder.
The 918 Spyder combines a high-performance internal combustion engine with electric motors on the rear and front axles to achieve extraordinary driving performance and excellent efficiency.
The combined system power of the drivetrain is 770 hp and the NEDC fuel consumption is forecast to be only around three litres per 100 km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of about 70 g/km. While the livery of the prototype is reminiscent of historical models, this advanced technology ensures the Porsche 918 Spyder is clearly a super sports car for the future.
The monocoque of the 918 Spyder is constructed from carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP), which reduces vehicle weight and delivers remarkable rigidity and dynamic precision. Other highlights are fully variable aerodynamics, adaptive rear axle steering and the 'top pipes' Exhaust system which routes the Exhaust upwards at the rear of the car.
The latest test car is now undergoing circuit laps in the legendary Martini® Racing colours synonymous with historic Porsche race cars, particularly from the 1970s. When they first appeared, the Martini® Racing stripes quickly attained cult status and are still in vogue today.
Martini® was the official partner of the Porsche factory team between 1973 and 1978. The attractively designed 'Martini® Porsche' race cars scored numerous wins and became the centre of attention wherever they appeared. Victories included finishing first overall in the Targa Florio, Sicily, in 1973, winning the Sports Car World Championship in 1976 and overall victories at the Le Mans 24 hours in 1976 and 1977. Previously in 1971, a Porsche 917 finished first in the legendary endurance race at Le Mans with the support of Martini®. Whether a Porsche 908, 917, 935 or 936 or one of various 911 RS or RSR models, common to all of these race cars was the memorable Martini® Racing design implemented in a wide variety of forms.
A new edition of this successful partnership is now making the Martini® Racing design exclusively available to the innovative 918 Spyder. Porsche AG and the Martini® brand, represented by Bacardi & Company Limited of Switzerland, have once again signed a partnership agreement to make this possible.

Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid drives - first real video
This past Thursday, the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid made its driving debut on a closed road in Monterey California, just days prior to its appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
After being shipped over from Germany by plane, engineers handed the keys of the new 918 Spyder Hybrid to Porsche AG Design Chief Michael Mauer. The car drove under its own power which comes from the mid mounted 3.4 liter V8 out of the RS Spyder as well as in all electric mode which powers just the front wheels.
The 918 Spyder prototype combines high-tech racing features and electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT, on the other.
Porsche Carrera GT Parked in Zurich + SL65 AMG Black Series Drive By
Footage of a stunning silver Porsche Carrera GT parked in Zurich, Switzerland this past August. I waited around a little for the owner to come so I could hear this beast but unfortunately that never happened. It was still cool to admire this incredible car on a quite Swiss street. In the video you also see a loud matte grey SL65 AMG BLack Series doing a fly by plus another car which I can't identify. Enjoy the video!!

Porsche 918 Spyder at the Nürburgring
On September 18th, in test drives on the "Nürburgring-Nordschleife", a Porsche 918 Spyder prototype turned in a remarkable best time of just 07:14 minutes for the 20.6 km long circuit.
