Porsche on Monday unveiled a new hybrid 918 Spyder coupe at the Detroit auto show expected to be on the market in 2013.

"Porsche is back in Detroit with force," Porsche chairman Matthias Mueller said in announcing the new model.

"The US is always our largest and most important market."

The latest car was unveiled in Geneva as a concept car, but the German automaker decided to put it into production due to strong interest.

The two-seater mid-engine coupe 918 RSR uses technology from the 911 GT3 R hybrid and the design of the 918 Spyder.

The luxury sportscar maker saw a strong gain in sales in 2010. Some 95,000 cars were delivered to customers last year, a gain of 25 percent.
