Article and Photography by Nathan Leach-Proffer.

When we caught wind that Porsche had brought a small army of engineers and a tester to our home turf of Colorado, we couldn’t help but send out the crew. What we found was that they had come for some high-altitude testing, running eight 918 Spyders and a slew of Cayenne SUVs through their passes at altitude outside of Denver. The vehicles shown here are in varying levels of condition, from test mules to near production quality. An example of the difference can be seen with the 918’s door handles and the taillights that appear to be pulled straight off a 911. The 918 Spyder is marked for the 2015 model year with a price tag nearly $900,000, and we can’t wait to get a pure production version here in Colorado.

Nathan Leach-Proffer (SpeedPhotos)

I first started working as a free lance photographer in 2004 while attending college for Marketing and Photography. After graduation I began work at Team Detroit, most recently as an Account Executive on the Ford Truck and Mustang national accounts before resigning to pursue photography full time. My first love was cars, my second was photography. Cars brought me to photography, however the art and constant desire to create is what has driven my passion and the inspiration to keep growing.

Nice find! Such a sick looking car. Can't wait to see these things in production.

Gorgeous car - and to see so many at once. MSRP may be almost a million dollars - I guarantee you that all these pre-production test cars are way more expensive. Nice find and catch.
