Porsche unveiled the RSR racing variant of the 918 Spyder. Instead of using plug-in hybrid technology, power for the two electric motors is provided by a flywheel accumulator KERS system that sits beside the driver in the passenger compartment.

The two-seater mid-engine coupé 918 RSR illustrates what happens when the technology of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid and the design of the 918 Spyder are transferred to a modern, future-proof super sports car. The V8 engine of the 918 RSR is a further development of the direct injection engine from the successful RS Spyder racing car and now delivers exactly 563 hp at 10,300 rpm in the 918 RSR. The electric motors on the two front wheels each contribute 75 kW, i.e. a total of 150 kW, to the installed peak drive power of exactly 767 hp. This additional power gained during braking is conserved in an optimized flywheel mass accumulator.
