Porsche's "there is no substitute" tagline has found its new mascot: the 918 Spyder. The above video demonstrates just how extreme a hybrid car can be. But this isn't just any hybrid rather; it's a hypercar that also happens to have two electric motors. Watch as the 918 rips around Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. The beautiful race track is the perfect location for the hypercar's incredible sound under throttle. Ukrainian aggregation news show YouTube Nation also recently featured this 100th episode achievement during a recent web cast
Creating one of the world's most amazing hypercars isn't cheap; rather this petty Porsche will cost you almost 1 million bucks. It is equipped with two electric motors and a gas engine creating in total almost 900hp (874hp to be exact) and 944 lb-ft of torque. The gas engine is a 4.6-liter V8 while the front electric motor produces 127hp and the rear 154hp.
If you're wondering what the German automaker will come up with next, you aren't alone. But for now watch the video and commence drooling.
