The Porsche weighs 1634kg - more than the P1 and LaFerrari, both of which sneak under 1400kg - and on the roads around the firm's Weissach proving grounds you're certainly more conscious of the impact of that extra mass on the 918's ride and braking. Even so, gone are the days where pursuing the outer limits of performance meant an appointment with the dentist the following week to replace lost fillings.
Maybe the most impressive thing about this trio is the way they make their blinding performance and engineering sophistication so accessible. Each swaddles its vast performance in a blanket so comforting that, honestly, you could imagine using any one of them as a daily driver, fuel bills and depreciation notwithstanding.
