    Friend told me that the production starts on September 18/2013. There will be two versions - "Regular" and "Race Track".  On the Russian market the "Race Track" version will cost 991.300 Eur.

    Correct. Porsche has already stated it will being on that date. 9/18 2013, all apart of the marketing! Smiley

    They are currently in the south of Spain, some people on the spanish board have run into them. Nice place for testing, good waether and nice mountain roads... or maybe its more like an excuse for a paid vacation while driving 918's for free

    OMG, Porsche wins the hottest camo mule ever kiss I love how much of them they built, how much they are testing them and how they choose the livery of them !! Compare that to the Enzo II mules... The 918 will be stunning and every sense a true Porsche - ie. more drivable and reliable while less flashy than a Ferrari. If it's also faster, it's a winner!

    918: 770 bhp, 1700 kg

    "New Enzo": Circa 920 bhp and 1200 kg (rumoured)

    The officially announced 0-200 time of the 918 is slower than that of the F12. The next Enzo on the other hand will be a Veyron beater. Not even in the same league really.

    918 will have more than 800 hp.

    New enzo will be around 920, i agree, on paper)))) Ferrari is the greatest paper claimer)))Smiley

    Very nice pics of 918 on the highway . I must say, I can't make myself like this car.Something in this look is wrong. It have much more Pagani look than a Porsche look....The car has too rounded forms. I still prefer Carrera GT look.

    Porsche has gone official stating 770 BHP of maximum combined power. Have you got any inside information saying otherwise?

    Correct. 100%.

    Smiley And Porsche is conservative.. It will give the Enzo a run for it's money. It's already going to be way more efficient Smiley

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I am basing it on the claims for these specific two cars. Unless P has been lying through its teeth, the specs of the 918 are no match for the upcoming Enzo successor. Look at the claimed numbers, how off can these be? Will the 918 be 1200 kg instead of the whispered 1700 for example?

    As I can remember, Porsche is one of those companies that lie much less than others. F.e. they claimed 4 secs to 100 kph for cgt. In reality 3,5 secs were possible... Turbo s official was 3.3. As tests have shown 2.7 are often possible.

    That does not stand true. The Enzo for example was supposed to have a 3.5s 0-62mph time but low 3s were clocked independently and almost 370 km/h were also seen. The 458 has a 0-62 official time of 3.4s but various magazines have clock it at 3-3.1s. 0-124 mph times of less than 10s have also been clocked, whereas the factory claims only 10.4s and while its top speed theoretically is 325 km/h in all tests it hit 330. So Ferrari is also understating its numbers. Which is besides the whole point really as a differential of half a tonne (1200kg vs 1700) is unimaginable.

    It's pointless debating with Realzeus about Ferrari. He is the 100%, authentic diehard Ferrarista. No qualms about his automotive preferences, but it's like trying to have an objective discussion with the Pope on the topic of the Resurrection of Christ. smiley

    Even though, I accept the accusation of "diehard", I am bringing some valid arguments to the table I reckon. Feel free to shoot them down mate. Smiley

    What about them? Never proven! Why are the cars that Ferrari provides to the journalists tricked out and not the cars that other manufacturers give to the press? Your logic is hilarious. If a Ferrari proves to be faster than claimed, then it's a demo special. If another car proves to be quicker than claimed, then it's a bloody good car! Priceless line of argument really! Smiley
