Porsche might be playing a sly long game with the 918 Spyder if a rumor from a forum user who claims to have ordered one proves to be true.
According to a user who claims to have ordered a LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and a Porsche 918 Spyder, the German hyper car will make 875 hp contrary to the previously reported 795-hp rating. The same user also claims it will be capable of lapping the Nurburgring in under seven minutes.
Needless to say, enthusiast forums are frequently full of nonsense. There’s no way to check if the report is credible, but it would also make sense if the rumor turns out to be right.
Both Ferrari and McLaren are stuck with their performance figures after making the official announcement, but Porsche still has time to play with its car behind the scenes.
With the Porsche said to debut during September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, there’s still plenty of tweaking time.
