The 918 Spyder Hybrid. 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds.
2.8 seconds blasts you into a new dimension. If Porsche wanted to further prove that electric vehicles are not the gutless wonders they are believed to be- mission accomplished! It takes some people more time to put on their seat belt.
I am impressed. Porsche is known for quality and speed. They certainly take the trophy. This may signify things to come for the electric vehicle manufacturing process. However, the sad truth is that I don’t think it’s $850,000 impressive.
All that money could buy a lot of normal cars. This is not a car for the average Joe, but then again that has never been Porsche’s market. With a 0-60 in 2.8 seconds you would need a track to drive this anywhere. Only the wealthiest will purchase one of these Spyder Hybrids. With that said, why not put it in a movie like the BMW i8 in Mission Impossible? With that maybe us common folk can enjoy the beauty of the 918 Spyder.
