Saving your pennies for a Porsche 918 Spyder? You may want to go ahead and take out a loan to get the down payment on the table, for the hybrid hypercar is nearly sold out.

Automotive News reports production of the 918 will draw to a close in July 2015, while planned production is sold out through early April at the latest, according to Porsche Cars North America vice president of marketing, Andre Oosthuizen.

Regarding how many have been made thus far, Oosthuizen declined to say more than that it was doing well for itself. He added that 30 of the $847,945 spyders were delivered to customers around the world — each bestowing Porsche a deposit of $200,000 for the opportunity to own one — thus far.

    When I worked at The Great Blue Banking Satan, all managers had at least a Vice President title. That made for thousands of VPs with no real authority.

    Gorgeous car but Holy Schnikies. W.T.F. Is going on with the panel gaps around the bumper and headlights, that looks terrible.

    Loan for the downpayment? They do 80/20s on cars now?? Give me a Boxster GTS for fun, Panamera GTS for a DD, and a Cayenne Turbo for the wife/tow car, and I still have plenty of coin left over to campaign a 996 GT3 for several seasons of amateur racing. I know for 918 buyers it's not an either/or scenario (they already have/do the above) but that's how my bourgeois mind thinks.

      @Noble713 Blown away by that quote, I looked it up. It was an exaggeration by the CEO to differentiate Bentley owners who have a few cars, and Bugatti owners who have massive collections. Still, probably not that much of an exaggeration. Had to LOL at the article's comment: "Oh NOW I get why we don't tax those people properly." How dare we deprive them!

    I just calculated that the payback period based on the fuel savings of the 918 vs a new 911 GT3 is only 250 years at 15,000 miles per year. No wonder it is selling so well.
