At the 2011 Auto show in Detroit, 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 V8 is a further development of the direct injection engine from the RS Spyder race car developing 563 horsepower (420 kW). The electric motors on the two front wheels each provide an additional 102 horsepower (76 kW), giving a peak power output of 767 horsepower (572 kW). The six speed gearbox is a development of the unit from the RS Spyder.

This article or section contains information about a concept automobile.

It is likely to contain information of a speculative nature, but such speculation is usually sourced from the automotive news media, the automaker's media press releases, or other news sources. Concept cars, or similar evolutionary vehicles based on them, may never see production. The content and specifications for those selected for continuation may change significantly as the concept evolves, or as production nears if it is launched, and as more information becomes available. Concept automobiles, and their derivatives if any, are subject to delays or cancellation by the automaker.
