As of September 2014, the top speed of the current range of Porsche models ranges from 135 mph in the Cayenne Diesel to 214 mph in the 918 Spyder. Multiple editions of each model are produced with varying top speeds.

The fastest production model manufactured by Porsche is the 918 Spyder, as of September 2014. It features a gas/electric engine, which produces a combined 887 brake horsepower and 944 pound-feet of torque. The 4.6-liter V8 paired with a 7-speed gearbox and hybrid-electric motors is one of the first generations of hybrid-powered supercars, rivaled only by the McLaren P1. Integrating hybrid technology with supercar power is an idea that is just beginning to break into the automotive market.
