Porsche has really hit the mark with it’s 918 Spyder Hybrid Super Car – with a monster that surpasses all standards for efficiency, performance and design – all at the same time. In the beginning, the 918 Spyder was only a concept, but Porsche has confirmed recently, that it will go to production.
With an expected price tag just under $900,000, the Porsche 918 Spyder will be able to go from 0-60 in less than a whopping THREE seconds – while hitting 124MPH in less than 9 seconds. To make it even more amazing, Porsche projects that the fuel efficiency will be no-less spectacular – averaging over 70 miles per gallon.
For design, it looks a bit like a mix between the iconic Porsche 911 and the prior super car, the Porsche Carerra GT.
Porsche recently invited members of the press to the test track, in Nardo, Italy.
Lexus has released the first pics of it’s updated look for the best-selling crossover SUV, the RX (RX 350 and RX 450h). It’s new aggressive look is in part due to the ‘spindle grille’ – or ‘new face’ of the RX that mimics the super-sporty 2013 Lexus GS which hit the showroom last month. It’s also sporting new headlights, as well as LED daytime running lights. Among other changes are new features, such as standard power liftgate, and new interior trim. The engines and powertrains remain the same, and will still deliver an impressive 32MPG in the city, and 28oMPG on the highway.
