Porsche is going to postpone the design and production of the successor to the Porsche 918 until 2025.
The new range of models from Aston Martin and Mercedes AMG had already flooded the stores.
The automobile brand is not in a hurry to cope up with their competitors. Rather, Porsche is going to take its own time to come up with a hypercar of their own. The information as shared by none other than Oliver Blume, the brand’s global chief who confirmed that their next hypercar is a long way off and isn’t going to be revealed in the near future.
“Our group is working on something big for the future. But, I should add that it is not going to be in the near future but rather will follow the trend we have. Porsche 918 Spyder is a special model which is usually renewed every ten years. The newest 918 Spyder was launched just two years ago in 2015 and this is not the right time to talk about a successor so early. If we are to discuss about the car, it should be in the next five years or so,” said Blume.
The year 2020 has gained much significance in the automobile industry with autonomous and all-electric technology ready to become the norm in almost every car that gets launched in the year. Models slated for launch in the year include the Aston Martin Valkyrie, Mercedes AMG Project One and the McLaren P1 set for 2022 launch. All these hypercars are game changers that have proven their mettle in the past and will once again do so in the near future.
While Blume didn’t specify an exact year but commented that they could talk about in five years, Porsche 918 successor will not launch until 2025 if the company decides to follow their traditional ten year schedule. They will not directly compete with their competitors who may launch their own models years before the Porsche car is out.
“We are always open to competition as it brings the best out of every brand as we try to compete with one another. The car with the best drive and performance combined with dynamics is what we aim to provide to our customers when it is ready. We are glad to have such strong competition which will make the Porsche 918 to deliver in all regards and stay ahead of the curve,” said Blume.
