Porsche Spyder Hybrid

Tags: Cars — 4:57 pm Comments (0)

For whatever reason, my dream car as a kid was a candy apple Porsche 911.  I’ll have to say that this Porsche Spyder hybrid in whatever color for my 50th birthday (still along time away) would be pretty nice.  I suspect that by the time I’m 50 there’ll be an even better car.  I like the Cayman S too, and the 911 Carrera 4S is not too shabby.

The 918 Spyder prototype combines high-tech racing features and electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT, on the other.
