A designer at Porsche’s Weissach development centre works on at clay mock-up of the Porsche 918 Syder.This is the latest teaser image released by Porsche of its 918 Spyder, currently under development for production. It shows a designer working on a 1:3 scale clay model of the body, which shows a revised front treatment, bonnet and side panel from the 918 Concept seen at the 2010 Geneva auto show.

The “productioneering” is being done at Porsche’s development centre at Weissach near Stuttgart, which is being expanded to the tune of about €150-million (R1.4-billion), including a high-tech wind tunnel, a design centre and an electronics integration centre.
