Porsche Centre Saskatchewan announces the unveiling of two unique and exceptional Porsche 918 Spyders at its Saskatoon facility. The only two, period correct* cars of their kind in the world, these 918’s were factory-built and exclusively customized with approval of both Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG and an historic Porsche racing partner.
The event will be held at Porsche Centre Saskatchewan, 335 Brand Road Saskatoon on Thursday August 27, 2015, commencing at 6 pm with the reveal at 7 pm CST. Speakers will include Porsche Centre Saskatchewan President/CEO Vaughn Wyant and Porsche Cars Canada’s Director of Sales, Trevor Arthur.
Following its 2013 debut at the Frankfurt International Autoshow, the 918 Spyder captured the worldwide press with its designer, innovative plug-in hybrid concept and super sports car performance. It shattered the Nurburgring Nordschleife lap record by an astonishing 14 seconds, posting a 6 minute 57 second run. With V8 and hybrid system combined, the 918 has a total output of 887 hp.
“The concept for these commissioned cars began years ago and we are extremely proud and excited that they are truly the only two of their kind,” states Wyant. “Our passion for the brand, and for the 918 in particular, has made the extremely long journey worthwhile and we are pleased to announce that one of these cars will be for sale to the ardent and discerning driving enthusiast who wants to own a truly spectacular, one-only sports car”
