Very much like the common hybrid cars, it comes with 2 powertrains for the gas and electric motors which can be operated either simultaneously or separately. It comes with an E-Drive mode that moves purely on its electric engine alone and it apparently could last up to 16 miles alone. In Hybrid mode is where it would most suited for daily driving which operates in combination manner. A Sport hybrid mode applies both powertrains which will skew its performance a bit more to give you that sporty experience. Of course, then there is the crazy top Race Hybrid mode which will tune the car purely for racing purposes, or so they say.

According to Porsche, the Spyder concept integrates “high-tech racing features with electric-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities’. While it burns petrol to give the boost from the engine, it is reported to provide only 70grams of CO2 per kilometer on 3 liters per 100kilometers of fuel. Porsche also claimed that this car did a 7.30 minutes lap time on Nordschleife at N’urburgring. That time is faster than that of the Porsche Carrerra GT.

Typically, the Spyder concept is a 2 seater car with a 3.4 liter power unit engine under the hood made famous byt eh RS Spyder car which is mated to a 7 speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe transmission. The electric engine is powered up through its fluid-cooled lithium ion battery which is located behind the passenger seat which can be charged using the usual electricity plugs. Design wise, Porsche has been very careful not to deviate too much from its ever popular models like the Porsche 917 and the RS Spyder where they have put in more focus on its racing-ness with a lot of thought into its eco-friendliness.
