Luxury Car News: Here’s a futuristic prototype hybrid from Porsche that is turning its share of heads at the Geneva Motor Show. Just one look at the open top –big-wheel Porsche 918 Spyder and it’s understood why. It is a monster in waiting. However, what is setting many to scratching at their skull is that this hybrid super sports car’s fuel economy is on parity with its high performance.
That’s saying a lot for a car with a top speed 198 mph and a zero-to-62 mph in 3.2 seconds. According to The Local, Porsche claims the 918 goes 100 kilometers (62 miles) on three liters (3.17 quarts) of gasoline. It also emits approximately one-fifth the CO2 emissions of comparable supercars.
In the Local’s article, legendary driver and Porsche rep Walter Röhrl said the car is faster than the Carrera GT.
