Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid Supercar

The Porsche 918 Spyder is a mid-engined plug-in hybrid supercar. The Spyder is powered by a 4.6 liter V8 engine, developing 608 horsepower, with two electric motors delivering an additional 279 horsepower for a combined output of 887 horsepower.

The 918 Spyder is a limited edition with 918 units scheduled for the 2014 model year. Production began on September 18, 2013. Reports suggest the run is sold out. The starting retail price is US$845,000 with a $ 200,000 deposit.
Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor show, the Porsche 918 Spyder can reach 60mph in less than 2.8 seconds. Porsche's Spyder can also do 72 miles per gallon and is almost a third more fuel efficient than the Toyota's Prius.

With a combined 887 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque from its mid-mounted V-8 and electric motors—one at each axle—the 918 delivers Bugatti-like acceleration, tenacious handling, and a 211-mph top end.
