2013 Pebble Beach to feature the Porsche 918 Spyder and the anniversary edition 911

Porsche has announced their line-up for the 2013 Pebble Beach, and like at the Goodwood FoS, the 918 Spyder will be at the limelight. Also taking its round of applause will be the recently announced 50th anniversary edition of the 911.

The 918 Spyder in its production shape will only debut at Frankfurt, but the near finish product made its dynamic debut at Goodwood last month. Porsche had earlier updated the performance figures for the 918 to match the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1. The car now gets a new four-wheel drive system thanks to its hybrid technology. The rear wheels are powered by a 616PS race-bred 4.6-litre V8 clubbed with a 156PS electric motor delivering a whopping 772PS. To add to the madness, the front wheels are propelled by an independent 129PS electric motor, while the power from hybrid unit is channelled to the rear wheel via Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.

Another car that comes to the Pebble Beach is the 50th anniversary edition 911 that celebrates the golden jubilee of the 911 badge which started off as a 901 prototype. The car replicates the original prototype and houses a rear-mounted 3.8-litre flat-six engine and a rear-wheel-drive layout. The 406PS of power generated will be transmitted by a seven-speed manual transmission which can be upgraded to Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch unit. The car will limited to 1963 examples a number signifying the birth year of the 901.

In addition to these models, Porsche will showcase a number of iconic cars from the company’s rich history, like two 911 GT1s, a 1972 Martini 2.1 Turbo RSR, a 1978 "Moby Dick" 935, the 1978 "Baby" 935.

For anyone who will be around California in August, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance will take place on the weekend commencing August 17, at Clock tower lane, in Carmel, California.
