Porsche 918 Spyder review - design

The 918 clearly borrows much of its shape from the Carrera GT. It's less striking than its two main rivals, but it's arguably more handsome for it

  • Blistering performance; cohesive hybrid tech
  • Added weight and complexity

When evo tested the 918 Spyder back-to-back with the McLaren P1 in issue 200, we noted that it shared the 'car-as-art' execution of its predecessor, the Carrera GT. The family ties are clear to see, and it nails a balance between looking clean and unadorned, and looking exquisite and expensive.

That car was also resplendent in a Martini Racing livery, one of several options available to 918 buyers to personalise their cars and a no-cost option on the Weissach Package. Personal taste will dictate whether you take the plunge on the graphics options - the evo office is split - but they certainly help the car stand out further.
