Porsche 918 Concept

This is clearly one of Porsche's better looking cars:

Now if they can only get over their 911 obsession. I wouldn't be surprised to see the car die because it can beat the 911. God forbid a car be faster than it...

Stunning looks, very similar design as the GT inside and out, and I love the title 918 reminiscent of the ol 914 for me.

Knowing nothing of performance, just looking at appearance, the overall appearance, ie. the lines look way too busy for me. I do prefer more subtle, simple lines that provoke emotions. Also, it was kind of funny to see the gentleman in the cockpit with suit/tie ...doesn't look very good in this kind of car. Would be interesting to see the car in flesh. w/ smiles Jimmy

Read that too [ http://www.autoweek.com/article/2010...REEN/100419858 ]. Having an extra 218HP IIRC electric motors would help. Make the word Hybrid not so much a global warming thing anymore: combined = 139 hp/liter

AND upwards of 78 MPG, lower, lighter, and faster Porsche hits a homer

No, it will have a completely different type of gearbox.
