I think we can all agree that no one expected the Porsche 918 Spyder supercar to be cheap, but did anyone expect it to be OMG WTF expensive? Pricing for the car had been rumored in the $600,000-$800,000 price range from the get-go, which already puts it out of the reach of us normal folk. Pricing has leaked in Europe that shows the car will be even more expensive than believed.
According to the leaked pricing, the car will start at €768,026, which works out to $995,976 in the US. If you opt for something called the Weissach Package, pricing starts at €839,426 or about $1,088,567. That pricing certainly guarantees that only the mega rich will ever get to see the inside of a 918 Spyder.
It's only the base price the vehicle that's crazy expensive though, pricing for optional equipment is just insane. The 918 has an option for magnesium wheels costing €29,750 or about $38,500 in the US. The quick charger option will cost another €20,230 or $26,234.
The most expensive option is some sort of special liquid metal paint starting at €47,600. That works out to $61,727 for a special paint color. It's hard to believe that the paint on your Porsche costs more than a Corvette.
