Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Concept - March 2, 2010, 11:03 PM

Two Words: Make it!
(you may want to expand the pics to full size to see the nice detail)

Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid concept gets 78 mpg, hits 62 mph in 3.2 seconds

the 918 Spyder is powered by both a 500-horsepower V8 and a pair of electric motors (one for each axle) producing an additional 218 hp or 160kW. At full gallop, the concept can theoretically reach 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and nip 198 mph on the high end. On the flip side, Porsche says it can also achieve 78 miles per gallon and emit just 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

I'm anxious to see where this market will be in 10-15 years. I mean, this is really good progress and will only get better from here.

Ugh... Cool concept, but I hate the direction Porsche is going in. Aston Martin as well...

Very pretty.

CGT was $440k. I can't see this much under $500k.

Chemical energy storage is a much more practical way to power vehicles. While plug-in hybrids are cool, it would make more sense to run everything on methanol produced with excess electricity. The infrastructure is already there.

Remove the cheap Fast & Furious neon green trim and that car is truly a dream.

The sad part is this technology has been available for years. It took $4/gallon gas prices to push it to the front of consumers minds. 500hp & 80mpg in the same vehicle. I imagine 10 years from now.. stats like the will be somewhat common place. And they wont cost 6 figures. Years down the road companies like Toyota keep refining the Prius technology.. improving HP and MPG.. avaialable in something really sporty and priced at $30-40k.

Im glad to see all automakers pushing forward for Hybrid, alternative fuel and electric based transportation. Not only is it great for the environment, but it will reduce our independence on foriegn oil and hopefully keep our noses out of the middle east. The only reason its taken this long is the Gas companies are making historical profits and have their money deep into politicians pockets.

^^^ I like the neon green piping. Reminds me of my Air Max 95's.
As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the designer used the color palette from them as the inspiration.

At least I know if I get one, I have the perfect driving shoes to match.

You could argue that.. but look at what it takes to maintain gasoline engines, the complexity of engines, the weight/metals/plastics/fluids, they also use batteries, and of course the emissions that directly affect the atmosphere.
