Outfitted with the desirable Weissach package, this only furthered the 918’s ludicrous performance. Many parts of the interior normally swathed in leather were replaced with lighter Alcantara, and carbon fibre replaced a large portion of aluminium components. Super lightweight magnesium wheels were fitted, and the windscreen frame, roof, rear wings, and rear-view mirrors were also made out of carbon fibre. Titanium-backed brake pads and ceramic wheel bearings further differentiate the Weissach cars. Together, this accounted for a reduction of 45 kilograms of weight over the standard 918 Spyder and an instantly discernible increase in performance.
In the hands of its first and only owner, the 918 was used frequently but always well looked-after and maintained without regard to cost, as evidenced by its exceptional condition with just under 11,000 kilometres (6,800 miles) from new showing on its odometer.
In the spring of 2017, the car received a full, scheduled service by Porsche Great Britain and at the owner’s request has been fitted with a set of new tyres and Weissach-specific brake pads to ensure that the car is instantly ready for continued enjoyment out on the open road. It has been unused since the service was carried out. Furthermore, the car is completely covered in the latest generation paint protection film.
With hybrid offerings quickly becoming a mainstay in the Porsche lineup, the technologies that the 918 introduced have directly influenced other mainstays of Porsche’s lineup, namely the Cayenne and Panamera, which now have hybrid variants of their own. Like its spiritual predecessor, the 959, the 918 Spyder will undoubtedly be remembered as one of Porsche’s most groundbreaking automobiles. With the Paint to Sample 918s being the most sought-after cars and outfitted with the hugely desirable Weissach package, this particular 918 checks all the right boxes for the enthusiast looking to use Porsche’s newest and most impressive supercar as the factory intended.
