Porsche Makes Hybrid Supercars Sexy

You know becoming eco-friendly has hit the big time when Porsche gets in on the action.

The German luxury sportscar brand unveiled it’s Porsche 918 Hybrid Supercar in March for the Geneva Auto Show. The car, which in its own right is a marvel, attracted a lot of attention, not just for the technical aspects, but also for the environmental claims Porsche has made.

The Porsche 918 Hybrid Supercar has specs that have yet to be independently verified, but with the greenlighting of this endeavor, at least 1,000 people want to see the car on the road. In the meantime, Porsche maintains the 918 hybrid can go from zero to 100 km/hr in less than 3.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 198 mph. The mileage? 78mpg, if you’re interested.

The 918 also boasts a 500 horsepower V8 mid-sized engine based on the 3.4 mil found in the Spyder race cars. The car has four modes – from fully electric to full race modes are included.

And because the Porsche costs upwards from $600,000 USD, it will almost certainly be a limited addition.
