Recently Bloomberg has named the Porsche 918 Spyder the best sports car of 2013. Porsche has long been at the top of the sports car world, but there are distinct differences in this model. It is one of the few supercars in the world that is a hybrid. At a $845,000 price tag the 918 Spyder surpasses the $4Mill Lamborghini Veneno and the $1.4Mill LaFerrari. The 918 is an exemplar of Porsche's race car heritage without losing consumer appeal. It is Porche's first go at a supercar since the Carrera GT, which was released almost a decade ago. All of that time between projects can be seen in the performance of the 918. It's V8 hybrid engine pushes out an astounding 887hp and the car weighs in at 3,715lbs. This is apparent in it's blistering acceleration that Porsche records as 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds. The 918 isn't just all go all the time. Porsche placed a five position rotary dial on the steering wheel that lets the driver select between five different modes: electric, hybrid, sport, race, and hot lap. When it's not running in electric mode, it is one of the loudest and angriest cars to don the Porsche badge.
