Porsche has released official pricing for its entire lineup of 2013 models, which just happens to include the upcoming 918 Spyder hybrid supercar. The 795-horsepower advanced-technology-lab-on-wheels is now officially confirmed to have a starting price of $845,000 in the US, which is the exact amount we were told earlier when we had the opportunity to ride shotgun in some 918 Spyder pre-production test vehicles.

What we didn't know at the time was the cost of the Weissach trim package, which is a high-performance upgrade to the standard vehicle that includes the deletion of some interior amenities and addition of lighter-weight carbon fiber appointments, magnesium wheels, flame-resistant upholstery, racing belts and aerodynamic aids – it's meant for track-going folk who intend to use their 918 Spyders as God, country and manufacturer intended.

All told, the Weissach package should drop the 918 Spyder's curb weight by some 80 pounds, while also lightening your wallet of an additional $84,000 – the car's MSRP with the Weissach package is $929,000. These prices don't, however, include destination charges, which, for something like the very limited edition 918 Spyder (only 918 will be made), could very well cost considerably more than your average Porsche.

The official pricing list can be found below and also includes base MSRPs for new models like the 2014 Cayman ($52,600), Panamera S Hybrid ($96,150), Cayenne Diesel ($55,750) and Cayenne S Hybrid ($69,850).

        From reading an older article about this car: http://www.autoblog.com/2012/10/01/2014-porsche-918-spyder-deep-dive-review/ Some stats don't make sense. For example the battery weight of 660 lbs has to be incorrect and/or the capacity rating of 6.8 kWh. The Chevy Volt by comparison has a 16.5 kWh (2013, before that is was 16.0) battery that weighs only 435 lbs. http://gm-volt.com/full-specifications/

      Cool car, but you would have to be absolute tool to pay $80,000 for a package that lightens the car 80lbs. That is practically nothing when you consider the over all weight of this car. That has to be one of the most absurd things I have ever seen marketed to anyone. It's sort of like saying Here is a 5,000 sq ft home for $1,000,000. Pay an extra $80,000 and we can give you an extra 100 square feet. Forget the kids, forget the bills, YOU NEED THIS EXTRA 100 SQUARE FEET. :)

        I agree with your point, but the people who are buying this car don't care about $80,000. The average CEO for American companies made a bit over $50,000 per day last year. So, would you buy the extra special Porsche 918 if it was going to take you 12 hours of work to pay off? Maybe.

          got anything to prove those numbers? that means if they work 2/3 of the year ( most CEO's work more than 2/3's of the year....) they make 100 million dollars.... the ceo of the wealthiest company in the world ( apple) made 9 ish million and even if his stock options quadruple that hes not making 100 million in a year....http://lmgtfy.com/?q=average+salary+of+a+ceo

          @Zeus: Wow, you got pretty upset about my comment. I was just trying to put the $80K in perspective. People pay extra for add-ons (and subtractions) to cars all of the time. If you read my response again, I said "I agree with your point." I know that 80 pounds doesn't matter much on a 4000 pound car. We're not talking about me here. I don't have the money for an $80K car, let alone an $80K option on a $800,000 car. LOL Take a deep breath; relax.

          Man I'm all good over here, I know you get my point and I wasn't attacking you. Lets not be sensitive here. I would tell porsche to stuff it and for that money I'd much rather look into a Pagani than a 4000 + lb porsche hybrid or build something myself. It's crazy anyone would justify that.

          Just because someone can afford something, doesn't make it a just purchase. If you understand anything about cars, 80 lbs of weight in a 4000 lb car means jack **** all to you as a driver. Even if I was a millionaire, I am first and foremost a person of practicality and understanding. If someone told me I could pay 80k to have a car that weighed 3920 lbs instead of 4000lbs I would tell them they are an idiot. The moment a person justifies that purchase is the moment they admit they are of such a low IQ and detachment from the automotive world, or the world in general, they have lost touch with the value of anything. Just because you are rich doesn't mean you abandon logic. It's sad you would even try to justify it.

          @johnjohn44 : Sure, just google "CEO pay" and you'll find plenty of sources. The average mentioned in the following link is $14M / year for executives at the top 200 companies. At $14M per year that breaks down to $56,000 per day, assuming 50 weeks per year (2 weeks of vacation) and 5 days per week. http://jobs.aol.com/articles/2012/06/18/average-ceo-pay-jumps-to-14-million-while-workers-barely-tread/

        Clearly you haven't spec'd adding a home sauna to compliment your million dollar house. $80k will about do it. But then I think you're also off on the 5000 sq ft that $1M would never buy. Don't try to get in the heads of rich buyers. For many, bigger price is better. It's more douchey that way.

          You must live in California. $1,000,000 can get you a lot in other parts of the US. In Idaho you can find 1200 acres (1 acre = 55,000 sq ft) for $350,000. You could take the $650,000 you saved and build your own race track, and build an Ultima GTR to tool around in on your own private race track. You're definitely right about the douchey price tags though...a lot of rich guys just care about spending more than the next guy. Hell...98% of them can't drive worth a damn anyway so it doesn't even matter! :P

      So it got a price before an official unveiling? Hmm. That's very un-Porsche-like.
      Jai302
      • 1 Year Ago
      You can have one for 1/10 of the price with almost 1/2 the horsepower. It's called a Boxster. What a ripoff. Porsche, much like Nissan, forgets that it is not and will never be in the league of Astons and Ferraris no matter how much they pretend with absurd pricing such as this.

          Sigh. Looks, powertrain and everything else is amazing on this car. Again complaining about the price. Sorry it won't cost 20k and unless you are planning on buying it don't complain and go try to build something better.

        SO? Is it supposed to be? Don't mistake hybrid for green. There is a time and a place for the instant torque an electric motor gives. Only certain automakers have you to believe that hybrid=green. They are far from being green.

          that whole "because the electricity comes from coal" upchuck of a rebuttal is what I'm guessing you mean (correct me if this is wrong). It's an upchuck of a rebuttal because it's not based on any actual measurements that were actually done. It's the epitome of knee-jerk. When actual measurements are done, they still show electricity to be less polluting.

        This car is as far from a prius as you can get. Watch a couple videos to see the work and technology that went in to this thing. I don't like hybrids but this car is amazing.

      I think it's funny how 911 cabs retail for more than the coupes, only to resale for less when sold on the used market!
