PRLog - March 11, 2014 - Just a little over an hour’s drive south of the Savannah area's premier Porsche dealership (http://www.porscheofhiltonhead.com/cities/porsche-dealers-savannah/), Porsche of Hilton Head, the dynamic new 918 Spyder hybrid supercar arrived in the U.S. on March 6. The chosen port of entry, Colonel’s Island Terminal in Brunswick, GA is the launching point for distribution of this exceptional vehicle to Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Brunswick has been a port of choice for Porsche since 2002. Currently, nearly 23% of all the Porsche models in the U.S. have come to the country through the Port of Brunswick. Porsche reports that the Georgia location is ideal for its proximity to markets up and down the east coast, and that’s good news for local performance enthusiasts across coastal Georgia and the Lowcountry.

A world-class sports car designed around an advanced hybrid powertrain, the 918 Spyder delivers outstanding efficiency without compromising the power and performance expected of a car that carries the racing pedigree for which Porsche vehicles are famous.

This hybrid supercar is capable of sprinting from a standstill to 60 mph in a mere 2.6 seconds; but even with such thrilling acceleration, the sophisticated hybrid system provides an estimated fuel economy of 67 mpg. The engineers at Porsche have created a marvel of power and efficiency in the 918 Spyder.

In addition to its winning combination of superior driving dynamics and fuel efficient performance, the new 918 Spyder looks every bit a track-worthy supercar. With its lightweight design, low center of gravity, and aggressive stance, there’s no mistaking the fact that this is a sports car that means business.

Employing state-of-the-art technology directly from the racetrack, Porsche has built a hybrid performance vehicle that die-hard enthusiasts will love. With a load-bearing structure made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer, and featuring an Active Aerodynamic system, the 918 Spyder is built for speed.
