    You could then also pull the above 430 next to the new boxster and say there's similarities. I think that Porsche is doing very well with their design direction. Just recently they managed to successfully replace the great looking 997 and the new boxster is nearly perfect, such a good job on it.

    As for the 918 I think we all dreamt of this.. Finally another Porsche halo car. It's 10 seconds faster than CGT, easier to drive, returns 3L/100 and can even be driving on full electric mode.. All this just 10 years after the CGT and looking as amazing as it does.. They made it look like their racing cars and the rear is just concept car sex! Imagine that the boxster will show design traits of this and perhaps Porsche will even link future race cars to this design.

    SportCarGroup:

    Same, definitely not. What I'm trying to say is that Porsche must work on their own strong design signature. Like they did with 911.

    Also, look more precisely on Ferraris GTs of 60's and Alfas+Maseratis. Lots of similaritiesSmiley

    So Porsche is in Avant Garde in terms of design traditions. Almost no similarities with others.

    Audi R20 Supercar Plans Revealed...

    (20 December 2012)
     
    Bugatti has the Veyron. Bentley recently unveiled the Continental GT3. Lamborghini is laying the finishing touches on the Aventador Superveloce. Porsche will soon release the 918 Spyder. And what does Audi have?
     
    It was supposed to have the R8 e-tron, but that car is either half-dead or barely alive, depending on your source. An ailing halo car is not what the new R&D chief Wolfgang Dürheimer expected when he recently moved over from Bentley. Instead, the ex-BMW and Porsche top manager is pushing for a new, even more ambitious sports car project known as R20.
     
    While the chairman of the board Rupert Stadler has not yet abandoned the zero-emissions R8 e-tron, Wolfgang Dürheimer seems to favor a street-legal LeMans racer as the most suitable means to burnish the marque’s reputation. At a glance, this approach may appear overly ambitious, but then the gestation of such a car is not rocket science. What helps is that all current LeMans contenders are in essence two-seaters with the passenger seat removed, so the packaging is already there. Although one could easily fuse the hardcore engineering concept with a relatively conventional supercar body style, Audi’s high-performance squad decided to model the road car after the racecar.
     
    The trouble is that, for obvious reasons, all LeMans entries look more or less the same. To break the mold, Audi plans to equip the R20 with the trademark full-length tailfin of an R18 LeMans racer. Other design features are said to include a downsized, singleframe grille; stacked LED headlights; ventilated front and rear wings; an adjustable tail spoiler (which may double as an air brake); and a relatively narrow canopy-style cockpit accessed through gullwing doors. An important engineering element is the active aerodynamics system, which can distribute the downforce between the front and rear axles for optimum stability in the critical 100-200 mph range. The proportions are those of a pure racecar: long, wide, low, and very butch. This is to be a wild animal, a driving machine conceived by experts for real pros.
     
    The interior of the R20 is as extreme and purposeful as the exterior. Expect a dynamic mode selector, a multi-functional black panel center display instead of conventional instruments, active-contour seats with integrated four-point belts, a multi-segment high-intensity windshield wiper and a camera-based surround-view package that renders door mirrors superfluous.
     
    Insiders expect Audi to opt for the diesel-hybrid powertrain, with the proven twin-turbo V-6. The power output of the road car engine should be in the area of 550 hp. Add to this the lightweight body and the two 75 hp motors than drive the front wheels (Audi’s e-quattro), and it’s easy to picture a compelling power-to-weight ratio as well as excellent performance figures. The e-quattro layout not only yields an extra 150 hp, it also adds torque vectoring, some zero-emissions capability, ultimate traction, an on-demand boost effect, and a beefed up torque curve. Furthermore, the hybrid technology makes provisions for staggered brake energy recuperation, high-speed coasting, and a broader start-stop application. At this point, there are no acceleration, top speed, or consumption figures available.
     
    With Audi on target to reach its goal and sell 1.5 million vehicles by 2015, the R20 will likely be unveiled at the Pebble Beach event that year to celebrate the achievement. Production would commence in the spring of 2016. The output will be restricted, but it is at this point not clear to how many. It may be as few as 100 to 250 units.
     
    True, the R20 is a costly enterprise, and it is not risk-free. But Audi is rich enough to reinvest into the brand. This is exactly what the new supercar does. After all, it embodies key values like lightweight architecture, superior efficiency, and outstanding dynamics. In a nutshell, it reconfirms the Vorsprung durch Technik commitment.

    The front is nice too. In the first picture that we can get a 3 dimensional impression the detailing looks as attractive as the rear. The 918 is an unusual design for Porsche but it links well with the Porsche design DNA.

    I am very happy with the styling kiss Let's wait for the performance and handling.

    "Form follows function"


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    That rear is so sexy and such a big and bold step for the relatively conservative Porsche design. Yet it reminds me of the old GT1 rear with the body feeling like it is wrapped by a wide body racing kit and it still looks functional first and foremost!


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I don't know why many people are concerned about the front end. We all saw it Geneva 2011 in full 'color' and it was stunning - no one complained. Actually whole car was epic. Notjhing has changed dramaticcaly since then and now all these concerns?! It is possible that car works way better in metallic paints, where all design features get exposed - and all thistime lately we are seeing testing mules painted in plain white, with bin's parts of 911 etc.

    Porsche 918 Spyder
    Press Kit
     
    Porsche 918 Spyder
     
    Evolution meets emotion:
    The technology behind tomorrow’s super sports car
     
    The future is taking shape: with more than half of its development time completed,
    the Porsche 918 Spyder is firmly on course to become the super sports car of
    tomorrow. As a plug-in hybrid vehicle, it combines a high-performance combustion
    engine with cutting-edge electric motors to deliver performance that is beyond
    extraordinary: the best of both worlds endows the 918 with the dynamics of a racing
    car packing more than 770 hp of power accompanied by fuel consumption, which at
    approximately three liters per 100 kilometres, is less than that of most modern
    compact cars. Moreover, Porsche is breaking more new ground with the technology
    demonstrator with spectacular solutions such as the full carbon fiber reinforced
    plastic (CFRP) body, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering and the
    upward-venting “top pipes” exhaust system. In the process, the 918 Spyder is
    offering a glimpse of what Porsche Intelligent Performance may be capable of in the
    future.
     
    The 918 Spyder has been designed as a super sports car and the legitimate
    successor to the Carrera GT. As such, the first goal was obvious: improving yet again
    on the Carrera GT’s performance. As far as is currently known, the 918 Spyder will
    be significantly faster – both in terms of acceleration and also performance on the
    racing circuit: less than three seconds from zero to 100 km/h (Carrera GT: 3.9
    seconds) and less than 7:22 minutes on the Nürburgring Nordschleife (Carrera GT:
    7:32 minutes) is an unmistakable statement. However, the uniqueness of the 918
    Spyder is best represented by the union of outstanding performance with a level of
    efficiency never seen before in the super sports car sector. Fuel consumption of
    approximately three liters per 100 kilometres and an electric range in excess of 25
    kilometres are unprecedented.  
     
     
    From comfortable to ready to race: five modes for three motors  
     
    The core of the 918 Spyder concept is the distribution of propulsive power across
    three power units, collaboration between which is controlled by an intelligent

     

    management system using five pre-selectable modes. This operating strategy is a
    core competency of the 918 Spyder. It takes the best possible account of the
    different requirements between an efficiency-oriented driving profile on the one hand
    and maximum performance on the other. In order to make the best possible use of
    these different approaches, the Porsche developers defined a total of five operating
    modes that can be activated via a “map switch” in the steering wheel, just like in
    motor sports cars.  
     
     
    Quiet and elegant: “E-Power”  
     
    When the vehicle is started up, the “E-Power” is the default operating mode as long
    as the battery is sufficiently charged. In ideal conditions, the 918 Spyder can cover
    more than 25 kilometres on purely electric power. In this mode, the combustion
    engine is only used when needed: maximum engine power is available at a moment’s
    notice by means of the kick-down function. If the charge state of the battery falls
    below a set minimum value, the vehicle automatically switches to hybrid mode.  
     
     
    Efficient and comfortable: “hybrid”  
     
    In “hybrid” mode, the electric motors and combustion engine work together with the
    focus on maximum efficiency and minimum fuel consumption. The use of the
    individual drive components adapts depending on the current driving situation and the
    desired performance. The hybrid mode is typically used for moderate, consumption-
    oriented driving styles, e.g. in city traffic.  
     
     
    Sporty and dynamic: “Sport Hybrid”
     
    In more dynamic situations, the 918 Spyder selects the “Sport Hybrid” mode for its
    motors. The combustion engine is now in constant operation and provides the main
    propulsive force. In addition, the electric motors provide support in the form of an
    electric boost when the driver demands higher output, or if there is scope to optimize
    the operating point of the combustion engine for greater efficiency. The focus of this
    mode is on performance and a sporty driving style.  
     
     
    For fast laps: “Race Hybrid”
     

    “Race Hybrid” is the mode for the highest possible performance and especially sporty
    driving style. The combustion engine is chiefly used under high load, and charges the
    battery when the driver is not utilising the maximum output. The electric motors
    provide additional support as necessary in the form of a boost when the driver
    requires even more power. The electric motors are used up to the maximum power
    output limit in order to provide the best possible performance for the race track. In
    this mode, the battery charge state is not kept constant, but instead fluctuates
    across the entire charge range. In contrast to Sport Hybrid mode, the electric motors
    run at their maximum power output limits for a short time, thus ensuring better
    boosting. This increased output is balanced out by the combustion engine charging
    the battery more powerfully.  
     
     
    For pole position: “Hot Lap”
     
    The “Hot Lap” button in the middle of the map switch releases the 918 Spyder’s last
    reserves and can only be activated in “Race Hybrid” mode. Similar to a qualification
    mode, this pushes the traction battery to its maximum power output limits for a few
    fast laps. This mode uses all of the available energy in the battery.  
     
     
    Main propulsion: the racing car’s eight cylinder engine  
     
    The main source of propulsion is the 4.6-liter, eight cylinder engine delivering more
    than 570 hp of power, which was directly derived from the power unit in the
    successful RS Spyder and explains why it delivers engine speeds of up to 9,000 rpm.
    Like the RS Spyder’s racing engine, the 918 Spyder power unit features dry-sump
    lubrication with a separate oil tank and oil extraction. In order to save weight, the four
    extraction pumps are made of plastic. Further extensive lightweight design measures
    resulted in, for example, titanium connecting rods, thin-wall, low-pressure casting on
    the crank case and the cylinder heads, a high-strength, light-weight steel crankshaft
    and the extremely thin-walled, alloy steel exhaust system. The result of the weight and
    performance optimizations is a power output per liter of approx. 125 hp/l, which is
    significantly higher than that of the Carrera GT (106 hp/l) and outstanding for a
    naturally aspirated engine.  
     
     
    Unique racing car construction heritage: Top Pipes
     
    It isn’t just this engine’s performance but also the sound it makes that stokes the
    emotionality of the 918 Spyder. This is attributable first and foremost to the so-called

    top pipes: the tailpipes are located in the upper part of the rear end immediately
    above the engine. No other production vehicle exhibits this solution. The top pipes’
    greatest benefit are the extremely short distances, as the hot exhaust gases are
    evacuated by the shortest, direct route and the exhaust gas back pressure remains
    low. This design requires a new, thermodynamic air channelling concept: With the HSI
    engine, the hot side is located inside in the cylinder V, the intake tracts are outside.
    There’s a further benefit: the engine compartment remains cooler.  
    This is especially beneficial to the lithium-ion hybrid battery, as it provides optimum
    performance at temperatures between 20 and 40 degrees Celsius. As such, less
    energy needs to be used for active cooling of the battery.  
     
     
    In parallel in the drive line: hybrid module  
     
    The V8 engine is coupled to the hybrid module, the 918 Spyder being designed as a
    parallel hybrid like Porsche’s current hybrid models. Essentially, the hybrid module
    comprises a 90 kW electric motor and a decoupler acting as the connection with the
    combustion engine. As a result of the parallel hybrid configuration, the 918 Spyder
    can be powered at the rear axle both individually by the combustion engine or electric
    motor or via both drives jointly. As is typical for a Porsche super sports car, the
    power pack in the 918 Spyder has been placed in front of the rear axle, and does not
    have any direct mechanical connection to the front axle.
     
     
    Upside down for low centre of gravity: Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK)
     
    A seven-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission channels power to the
    rear axle. The high-performance transmission based on the PDK in the 911 Turbo has
    undergone a complete overhaul for the 918 Spyder and was further optimized for
    high performance. In order to ensure that the installation position and thus the center
    of gravity of the entire vehicle were kept low, the gear unit was turned “on its head”,
    by rotating it 180 degrees about its longitudinal axis, in contrast to the mid-engine,
    two-seater Boxster, for example. If no propulsive power is required on the rear axle,
    the two motors can be decoupled by opening the decoupler and PDK clutches. This is
    what is behind the Porsche hybrid drive’s trademark “coasting” with the combustion
    engine switched off.  
     
     
    Independent all-wheel drive: front axle with electric motor
     

    On the front axle there is another, independent electric motor with an output of
    approximately 80 kW. The front electric drive unit drives the wheels via a fixed ratio.
    A decoupler ensures that the electric motor can be decoupled at high speeds to
    prevent the motor from over-revving. The drive torque is independently controlled for
    each axle. This makes for a very responsive all-wheel function, offering great potential
    for traction and driving dynamics.  
     
     
     
     
    Lithium-ion battery with plug-in charging system
     
    The electric energy for the electric motors is stored by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion
    battery comprising 312 individual cells with an energy content of approximately seven
    kilowatt hours. The battery of the 918 Spyder has a performance-oriented design in
    terms of both power charging and output in order to fulfil the performance
    requirements of the electric motor. The power capacity and the operating life of the
    lithium-ion traction battery are dependent on several factors, including thermal
    conditions. That is why the 918 Spyder’s battery is liquid-cooled by a dedicated
    cooling circuit.  
     
    To supply it with energy, Porsche developed a new system with a plug-in charging
    interface and multiplied recuperation potential. The plug-in interface in the B-column
    on the front passenger side enables the storage battery to be connected directly with
    the home mains supply and charged. The charging interface is standardized for the
    country of purchase. The charger is located close to the traction battery. It converts
    the alternating current of the mains supply into direct current with a maximum charge
    output of 3.6 kW. For example, using the charging cable supplied with it, the battery
    can be charged within four hours from a ten ampere rated, fused power socket on
    the German 230 Volt mains supply. A compact charging station is also supplied as
    standard with the 918 Spyder. This can be installed permanently in the driver’s
    garage. It permits rapid and convenient charging within approximately two hours,
    irrespective of regional conditions.  
     
     
    Energy recuperation trebled: recuperation
     
    In order to convert the kinetic energy of the vehicle into electric current when braking
    significantly more effectively than today, Porsche’s developers created a new
    generation of the recuperation system. A modern-day Porsche hybrid recovers

    braking energy up to a deceleration of 0.15 g. That corresponds to a braking
    manoeuvre in which the driver applies approximately 1.5 kilograms of pedal force.
    The 918 Spyder can recover up to 0.5 g, equating to eleven kilograms of pedal force
    – that is more than three times the amount of energy. The 918 Spyder can brake
    using both electric motors and thus recuperate energy for the traction battery. The
    super sports car features a ceramic braking system (PCCB) as standard.
     
     
    Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque promotes lightweight design
    with low centre of gravity  
     
    Despite, or rather because of the heavy components in the electric motor, the 918
    Spyder is a model of lightweight design. The load-bearing structure of its body
    comprises a monocoque with a unit carrier, both of them made of carbon fiber
    reinforced plastic (CFRP). This concept has a critical part to play in the curb weight of
    less than 1,700 kilograms, an outstandingly low value for a hybrid vehicle in this
    performance class. A system of adjustable aerodynamic elements ensures unique,
    fully adaptive aerodynamics that automatically reconcile optimal efficiency and
    maximum downforce.  
     
    The drivetrain components and all components weighing more than 50 kilograms are
    located as low down and as centrally as possible within the vehicle. The result is a
    slightly rear end biased axle load distribution of 57 per cent on the rear axle and 43
    per cent on the front axle, combined with an extremely low centre of gravity, ideal for
    driving dynamics. The central and low position of the traction battery directly behind
    the driver not only supports the concentration of masses and the lowering of the
    centre of gravity; it also provides the best temperature conditions for optimum
    battery functioning.  
     
     
    Chassis with racing car genes and rear-axle steering  
     
    The Porsche 918 Spyder’s multi-link chassis is inspired by racing car construction,
    complemented by additional systems such as the adaptive shock-absorber system
    PASM and rear-axle steering. Basically, this comprises an electro-mechanical
    adjustment system on each rear wheel. The adjustment is speed-sensitive and
    executes steering angles of a few degrees in each direction. The rear axle can
    therefore be steered in the same direction or the opposite direction to the front
    wheels. At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to
    the front wheels. This makes cornering even more direct, faster and more precise,

    and reduces the turning circle. At higher speeds, the system steers the rear wheels
    in the same direction as the front wheels. This minimises the “pushing” of the
    vehicle’s rear end when changing lanes quickly. The result is very secure and stable
    handling.  
     
     
    A new super sports car for a new decade
     
    The 918 Spyder continues the super sports car line in Porsche history; as technology
    demonstrators, the driving force behind emotion and evolution alike and the ultimate
    sports cars of their decade: the Carrera GTS, the first Porsche Turbo, the 959, the
    911 GT1, the Carrera GT. More than any of its predecessors, the 918 Spyder is
    providing a critical impetus to developing the technologies for future vehicle
    concepts.
