Porsche 918 Spyder

i was worried it was going to be some shitty cr-z type of hybrid. but this is a pretty awesome use of hybrid tech.

Some interesting facts from Wired

$800,000 price (appox.), $200k deposit
More than 50 CPUs
Electrical system alone took 9 months to develop
Every single light is an LED, from the headlamps to the interior
The passenger sits 20mm further forward than the driver for optimum weight distribution
The transmission was pulled from the new 911 and flipped upside down to fit the 918
Every body panel is carbon fiber, save the bumpers
There’s a “Manufactured in Flacht” sticker on the back as a reminder that Porsche Motorsport is the main developer
If you leave the two carbon fiber targa panels at home and it starts to rain, you’re out of luck. Porsche doesn’t offer a soft top option.

Another 80 kW electric motor is mounted on the front axle, powering the two front wheels and effectively making the 918 all-wheel-drive on-demand. That motor alone is good enough to get the 918 up to speed and driving around town on just electricity for 16 miles.

Porsche will supply owners with a quick-charging setup that will reduce that time to 2 hours.

Less than 3,700 pounds.

Nearly 80-percent of the weight is below the centerline of the car.

Funny how the test mule was put together by 911 parts. I never really knew they can do that, apparently you can't but they do it anyways LOL

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".
