Well, I guess hybrids can look sexy and cool! Porsche took the wraps off a 2-seat mid-engine supercar on the eve of the Geneva Auto Show: the Concept Study Porsche 918 Spyder – a high-performance hybrid for the 21st century.
Porsche: The 500 hp V8/218 hp Electric Hybrid 918 Spyder Concept hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.2 seconds, and it boasts a top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph). Not only that, according to Porsche, it laps the Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than the drool inducing Carrera GT.
Porsche says that, when driven accordingly [yes I’m laughing too], the plug-in hybrid 918 Spyder Concept gets an outstanding 78 mpg, with an emissions level of just 70 grams of C02 per kilometer.
