Although almost all the facts are already known about the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder, the German brand is still tweaking and perfecting the car, which means spy photos are still coming.

Photographed in Northern Sweden, two 918 were spied during cold weather testing, still looking exactly the same as the test mules seen previously. Using electric motors at each axle, the 918 will also be powered by a V8 engine delivering a total system output of 770 hp as well as a remarkably good 78 mpg. Pricing has been divulged by the brand as well, costing $845,000 on the low end, and approaching the million dollar mark when the car is loaded with options.

The 918 is expected on the market sometime before the end of 2013, and will try and steal some customers from companies like Bugatti, while new competition is expected sometime soon from Audi.
