Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid

By  |  0 Comments


Since the onset of increased scrutiny surrounding automobiles and emissions, sportscars seem to have been destined for slow death in the automotive industry. Their high-performance dispositions were no longer ecologically friendly nor wallet friendly with climbing gas prices. However slowly but surely, sports car makers are out to re-envision what it means to be a performance car in the 21st century. While Tesla was perhaps the first out of the gates (and entirely electric), Porsche throw their hat into the ring for eco-friendly sportscars. We doubt anybody will question their intentions with their 918 Spyder Hybrid. Recently enjoying a debut on US soil in Monterey California, the 918 incorporates some ground-breaking German engineering. A mid-mounted 3.4 L V8 is linked with electric motors to emit a minuscule 70 grams of CO2/km, and gas consumption of only 3 L/100 km (or 94 mpg). But a further highlight is the performance aspect of the vehicle which boasts a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of under 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph). This is a car that is far from being a slouch on the race track either, eclipsing another one of Porsche’s engineering marvels, the Carrera GT on the testing grounds of the Nürburgring with a time of 7:30.
