Porsche’s addition to the holy trinity, the 918 Spyder, is a masterpiece of engineering and problem-solving. The 4.6-liter V8 and two electric motors work together producing 875 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque. As with anything of this pedigree, it’s a high-strung road-going race car with a rigorous maintenance schedule. A rigorous and expensive maintenance schedule, we suspect, especially given the picture above showing what a 918 Spyder looks like during a service. The absence of rear bodywork, heavy use of protective blue masking tape and car cover goes to show how careful the technicians at this shop are about protecting this hypercar to keep the customer happy (and so they don’t have to pay to fix it). Next to the Porsche, on a bathroom-spec parts shelf, is most of the hypercar's exhaust system placed neatly on rags, as well as one of the car's wheels. A couple of cloths and some zip ties are tasked with keeping anything from falling into and destroying the Porsche’s expensive V8 engine. If you’re unfamiliar with what a 918 Spyder looks like with its bodywork intact, check out the gallery below.
