A 2+2 version of the Porsche 918 Spyder could be built to boost profitability of the hypercar project
9 September 2013

Porsche is looking at creating a £300,000 2+2 coupé based on the 918 Spyder later this decade, company sources in Germany have revealed. 

The claim is that Porsche wants to boost the profitability of the 918 Spyder hypercar project, which has come in over budget and is well short of being sold out despite its limited production run.

A full-size styling model of the 2+2 coupé, known internally as 984, has already been created. 

It uses a stretched version of the 918’s carbonfibre tub, and adds two small rear doors and two small rear seats. The 984 keeps the 918’s mid-mounted V8 but does away with its hybrid components.

Last week, McLaren revealed it had almost sold its entire run of the P1 hypercar. In March, Ferrari's marketing boss was confident all 499 LaFerraris would be sold.
