Porsche Releases a 918 Spider Video!!!

First of all... I propose that this car have its own thread. It deserves it.

not too much of it moving, but enough for me to know that this is my favorite car right now. I totally agree with what the guy in the video said. This is the future for super cars. Its hybrid technology done right. Its good to see porsche stepping up the the challenge and punching it in the face. Why not make a 700hp hybrid. Why not have it be the fastest car on the Nuremberg Ring. Why not do it now and not tomorrow.

i agree its a badass car except for the "hybrid technology done right" part. whats the mpg? it only can go 15 miles (25 kilometers) on electric. sounds like it doesnt even use the 3 hybrid motors it has
