To say thePorsche 918 Spyderis a remarkable technical achievement is like saying the passengers and crew of theTitanicsuffered a minor boating mishap. The idea of being able to hop in a car, put-put around on nothing but electrons for more than a dozen miles, circle theNürburgring Nordschleifein less than seven minutes and drive back to your house is epic in its absurdity, yet that’s exactly what you’ll find in thishybrid supercar’s bag of tricks.
Chris Harrisgot to drive a pre-production spec version ofPorsche’s latest flagship a while back and,at the time, he came away impressed but not particularly enamored. Now he’s had a go in the full-fledged production version, which has promptedChristo change his tune. And yes, this being a video from Harris Monkey, there’s some sideways action to be seen.
