Something Special – Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid
The common belief is that hybrids are slow, odd looking vehicles which offer improved fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions but reduced safety, comfort and quality of materials. Well not any more. Friends, I give you Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid, the car that will revolutionise the automotive industry forever. Not because it is going to be the fastest car on the planet, or the most economical, or the most practical one, but because it will change the way we think about hybrids. This Porshce 918 is in fact a two seater supercar with open top and mind-boggling design features, like the wheels for instance. The car started as a concept but from the company recently announced that due to the high interest, the car will indeed enter their high tech factory. This is good news for around 2000 people who have shown interest in the car. A few words about the powertrain: the car has centrally mounted 3.4 litre V8 which produces 500bhp. In addition, two electric motors are mounted on each of the two axles. Their combined power is around 218bhp. If we add up the power of all three engines, we get 718bhp, which is a lot of power. This however is not that impressive. The average fuel consumption is what sets this car apart from anything else on the road – 94 MPG and 79g of C02 per kilometer. Well I really don’t know what to say. And that is not all; this car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.2 seconds. It has four wheel drive system and I guarantee you that it will be more stable and safer on the road that most 4X4 cars. Do you now understand why this car is so special?
