Porsche to Develop New Mid-Engined Car Positioned between the 918 and 911 Models

German luxury car manufacturer Porsche recently confirmed their plans of launching a mid engined new supercar positioned between their quickest 911 car and the soon to launch super hybrid 918 Spyder car.

The company is considering an alternative to their soon to launch 918 Spyder, which is a limited edition car. The new car from Porsche is likely to utilise Modular Sports Architecture that is being developed by Porsche, Audi and Lamborghini, which are all a part of the Volkswagen Group.

For outdoing their high end 911 models as well as for competing with Ferrari 458, this new mid engined car will have to deliver a performance of 400kW and above as well as have a 0-100kmph mileage under four seconds with a top speed of more than 320kmph. While the 918 car will rely on a hybrid system that was previewed in the car’s concept form. This new supercar is likely to avoid next gen technology in favour of traditional technology to make it more affordable.
