Hybrid.. all wheel drive.. that's no NSX, that's a piece of trash soiling the NSX name.

No, the 918 Spyder is not yet out. It will be revealed in September @ Frankfurt and production will beginn in 2014.

The LFA lease program was abandonned when the car went on sale.

So what about the 918 Spyder? The 918 Spyder circles the N-Ring under 7:00 min. It has a NA H/R V8, Hybrid, 4-wheel-drive; 4-wheel-steering and dual-cltuch. Very far from the Carrera GT with basic LSD RWD and manual transmission. Same goes for the NSX. It has a NA H/R V6, Hybrid, 4-wheel-drive, 4-wheel-steering and dual-clutch, noothing like the orignial NSX. The NSX will be an "affordable" 918 Spyder. The NSX is to be faster than the GT-R (on track, not drag).

WTF you talking about?


The LFA has sold out, unlike the 918 Spyder, which has only 50% of them ordered (until everybody will get to know that it will get +100 PS and -100 kg). But they too are going to lose money with each car sold.
Sold to dealers and not enthusiasts. Wtf are you talking about??

Car forums are always full of "number jockeys".

This car is .5 seconds faster than this car on this specific track driven on a completely different day with different drivers, and weather conditions, so it's MUCH better. End of story.

The LFA is an amazing machine, and there are maybe a handful of people on the planet who could drive that car to its max potential, probably ZERO on this forum.

It is a sign of intelligence to know when to stop talking or make presumptions...
