It’s about time someone made a hybrid supercar. At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show last year Porsche announced that they are taking preorders for the supercar and that their customers will actually be able to pick it up in 2013 (however only 918 of them will be made). We finally get a glimpse at what they have concocted. According to Fast Company:
The lithium-ion battery powered vehicle packs a punch, with the ability to go 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph. According to Porsche, it also features a “high revving 500-plus horsepower V8 engine assisted by two electric motors with a total of at least 218 horsepower” inspired by the Porsche RS Spyder racing engine. And like any good hybrid, it has an impressive fuel economy: 78 miles per gallon, 16 miles on pure electric charge at up to 94 mph.
