On a car that weights less then 2,000 pounds, that translates into 0-60 mph in about 4.6 seconds.  We could go on an on about leather bucket seats and removable hard/soft tops, but you really only need to get behind the wheel to fall in love with this graceful head-turner.

Porsche 918 Spyder Concept Hybrid Super Car Hits Track

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.

The engines and powertrains remain the same, and will still deliver an impressive 32MPG in the city, and 28oMPG on the highway.
