Porsche 918 Spyder: it moves

First videos of Porsche’s 918 hybrid supercar beast actually moving hit the web. Stop working now…

This has officially snowballed into Goodness - first the shock Geneva reveal, then the confirmation, and now the video...

Stop whatever you're doing folks, and click the videos below. For in them is contained automotive delicatessen: the Porsche 918 Spyder in action.

The first is this quick 15-second clip taken at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where the 918 Spyder was supposed to make its moving debut.

But then Porsche released a full-blown mini-vid, with epicness thrown in for good measure, filmed a few days prior to the posh motor show kicking off.

If you're thinking ‘Porsche-what?', shame on you. Don't forget, this is the 700bhp+ hybrid supercar packing three electric motors and a racing 3.5-litre V8. It'll do the 0-62mph dash in 3.2 seconds, hit 200mph and blitz the Nurburgring quicker than a Carrera GT.

When you're not on full track-attack, the hybrid-ness of the 918 means it emits as little as 70g/km of CO2.

Witness the fitness...

Now share it...
