Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Concept- 07.13.10

newporsche00.jpg Hybrid concepts for future sports cars are inescapable ~ remember the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG E-Cell? Well here is the stunning Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid concept car with plug in hybrid that launched in Geneva i’ve been obsessively looking at pics of lately. Look at those wheels in particular! And the aggressively sleek exterior? Stats: “An emission level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometer on fuel consumption of three liters/100 kilometers (equal to 94 mpg imp) outstanding even for an ultra-compact city car. 0 to 100 km/h in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph). Body shell made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFP) with appropriate use of magnesium and aluminum to reduce weight to less than 1,490 kg or 3,285 lb and provide stiffness.” Although just a concept, they said it would be put into production if 1000 people were serious about it… and it looks like it might be happening! Take a peek at the gorgeous promo video and close up pics on the next page.

i think it’s gorgeous and i am sure there will be those l000 lucky enough and willing to purchase this exotic and pricey beauty. But is this porsche looking amazingly very similar to what modena is putting out from the front and side views???

Great post!! This car is a total revolution, life changing like the iPhone, but only for those who can afford the half a million euros (approximately $630,000) it will cost. That would make the production 918 Spyder the most expensive vehicle ever offered by Zuffenhausen (Porsche Main factory | http://911nation.com/2010/04/ultimate-factories-inside-the-house-of-porsche-911/).

Apparently, as soon as Porsche has 1,000 credible orders, they will begin production….so far they have 900! Come on people….step on up to the plate!
