Last November at Tech Tactics West, heavy emphasis was placed on the 918 Spyder, Porsche's 887-horsepower hybrid supercar. There was one up on lifts for PCAers to examine between technical presentations, and Porsche Cars North America Sports Car Project Manager Andrew Lennon gave an in-depth presentation on it. But lurking at the end of a hallway in the room adjacent to the production 918, there was SEP006, a pre-production development prototype that PCNA uses to train dealership technicians on servicing and repairing the hybrid supercar. Despite being a fully functional 918, it is scheduled to be "disposed of" when dealer training has ended.

Fortunately PCA Vice President Tom Gorsuch was able to interview Lennon about this curiosity before it reaches the end of the line. Scroll down to watch the video.
