Previously, Porsche said the 918 Spyder needed 2.7 seconds to sprint from zero to 60 mph, but now says the supercar can do it in just 2.5 seconds.

When equipped with the optional Weissach package, the supercar accelerates from zero to 124 mph in 7.2 seconds, making it 0.5 second quicker than originally stated.
