Porsche 918 Spyder concept= 500hp and 78mpg

Here you go, have your cake and eat it too. Porsche is looking to prove that the best of both worlds don't have to be mutually exclusive with the 918 Spyder concept scheduled to debut tomorrow at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Looking a bit like a Carrera GT evolved, 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.
My opinion, that is crazy It would be amazing if they can achieve that. I hope they are not calculating the way chevrolet "volt" mpg was calculated.

I could use a Vicodin..just because.

The side mirrors look like some kind of doctors office probing device.

It would be a tad more than a Boxster S. Just a tad.

The car that someone actually needs to build. I had hoped it would be BMW because I felt it's the one sector of motorcars that so far has escaped them.

I love it. Looks like a futuristic, eco-friendly Carrera GT. The little things like the rear view mirrors (pun intended), dashboard, green accents (no matter how cliché), wood trim combined with copious amounts of carbon fiber, and of course the wheels make this thing look so cool.

Yes, because right now we all can afford a Porsche but are waiting for a really fuel-efficient one.
