A Porsche 918 Spyder might be the pin up car for those seeking a frugal supercar.

Ever thought a Porsche 918 Spyder could be the pin up car for the future? If the price tag was indicative, maybe.

The imperatives of climate change has led car engineers to a trove of incredible creative possibilities while researching new power alternatives. For example: the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Engineering genius and the hybrid combination of petrol and electric motors has produced a car of monumental efficiency. The 918 is one of the world’s greenest cars, with combined-cycle fuel consumption of 3.0 litres per 100 kms and Co2 emissions of 70 grams per km.

And one of the fastest. It can go to 300 kmh in less than 20 seconds – 20 seconds! But where would you drive it at that speed in Australia?

Such performance is hypothetical for anywhere except the racing track, but the Porsche 918 technology is sure to trickle down quickly to the family dunger.

Put away your fuel card and hang on to your hat!

The New Spyer –  an excerpt from the Porsche website….

Some stories are told in just 6 minutes and 57 seconds. For this story, that is only the beginning. It starts with a hybrid – but one that had to be distinctively Porsche. And with intelligent technology. Our challenge is to move forward with confidence and take a new direction.

What do we need to achieve this? 918 drivers. 918 pioneers. To provide the initial spark and to reignite the old sports car dream. The 918 Spyder represents an entirely new look at the supercar. It heralds the future of the sports car and you can be there at the start.
