Default Now, this is how to do the hybrid thing

Porsche unveiled the Concept Study 918 Spyder at Geneva. It makes about 500hp from a 3.4 V8 and 218hp from electric motors. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous machine. Porsche can make even a hybrid the sex!

Does it have that electric spool up engine that stores power during braking and then is able to use it when exiting a turn?

If so I hope they got that stupid 40k rpm thing OUT of the cockpit. If that thing came apart you would be in 40k+ parts....lol

It looks sweet but we shall see if it ever comes to volition.

BTW....we drive Corvettes. They are hybrids. They burn gas and rubber.

Beautiful car, but I'll bet it costs $150,000!

If it makes it to production, I'd bet on $300k+.

I love it! There are so many possibilities out there with hybrid technology, I like seeing manufacturers go after the performance side of it as well.
