According to leaked photos, Porsche has applied for a patent on the 918 Spyder in China, revealing the first visuals of the production model.

If these patent images indeed reveal the production model 918 Spyder, then the German automaker hasn’t changed too much from the concept version that’s been spotted lapping the ‘Ring. The 918 Spyder seen here features door handles, mirrors, turn signals, seat belts and a slightly redesigned front bumper with different air intakes.
