If the world wants me to drive an environmentally caring car it must do two things. Firstly it must not leave me in any form of detriment when compared to a standard car. Performance for example is often surrendered in favor for more MPG’s or the finished product is dulled down to save weight .etc It should behave just like every other car on the road! Secondly I would like to see this technology bring more than just better economy to the drive. There are so manny innovative applications for things such as KERS that are only now being taken advantage of. Porsche hit the nail on the head with the 918 Spyder Concept last year and today that very goes on sale.
The 918 is a Hybrid. It has all of the eco-friendly tech green peace want in every car but the key difference is that it doesn’t invalidate its core purpose of being a performance machine. This gorgeous piece of engineering is limited to just 918 examples at the cost of £672,000 each. What you get in return for that vast sum is not just Porsche’s new performance flagship but a step into the future of supercars. Its V8 combustion heart is coupled with two electric motors producing a total BHP reading of around 715. 0-62MPH is completed in 3.2 seconds and the top speed is said to be over 199MPH. Considering that the car will return 94MPG there is just nothing else quite like it.
Production begins 18th September 2013 and Porsche are saying that the cars will be delivered in the order of who purchases first. So if you want to be top of the list we suggest you give your local Porsche dealer a call now.
