Hybrid 78 MPG 918 Spyder Debuts
In the past 20 years, Porsche has not released many concept cars. The Porsche Boxster and Carrera GT are the only models that have been displayed, states blogger Brandon Hill of the last two decades. The German car manufacturers have proved today that when they put their minds to it, they can lead the way in green designs. You won’t be able to buy this hot car with just a basic credit check payday loan, however. You will need a real bad credit auto loan if you want to drive away in style.
Porsche leading the pack
Today Porsche revealed a gorgeous new model concept called the 918 Spyder. This car is definitely a beauty; it’s sleek and stylish — not to mention very high tech, with its improved power-train. Brandon Hill compares it to the Ferrari F430, Porsche Carrera GT, Porsche Boxster, and Porsche 911 GTI:
Disk wheel design is a flash from the past
The disk wheel design is only one of the great features on this concept car. It also features seating for two, all-wheel drive and dual side-exiting exhaust pipes on both sides of the car. I would definitely be a 918 Porsche if I was a car. This concept kills the potential competition!
Will it ever make it to production?
The fact that this is made by Porsche tells me that this car is quality for sure. It seems German-made cars are among some of the best luxury vehicles on the road today. This 918 Porsche is made for performance with its V8 500hp engine and a front and rear electric motor that adds about 218 more horses.
This concept can reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds flat, and it is capable of traveling 16 miles on battery power alone, according to Hill. All these improvements equal about 78 mpg, according to Porsche and Hill. Hill says “No one knows if all of this performance goodness will ever make its way into a production vehicle, but one can hope that at least the styling cues and maybe a toned-down version of the hybrid system could make it into a production vehicle.”
I’d love to see this vehicle and others like it make it to production.
It would be nice to see versions of this technology translated into a more affordable car. This way all Americans can benefit themselves and the environment more practically. Of course, there’s no telling how long it will actually take to get the gas guzzlers off the road for good, but hopefully it won’t be too long. The earth has been holding its breath for far too long and it could certainly benefit many aspects of life on this planet, too.
