6.11.13 … Porsche 918 Spyder: $845,000 …

cars, rich people, Porsche 918 Spyder, hybrid cars, Speakeasy , WSJ:  really rich or really stupid?

 

But the debate lost steam recently with the rollout of the production version of the Porsche 918 Spyder, a plug-in hybrid supercar with a top speed of 211 miles an hour and a price of $845,000.

Even though the German sports-car maker touts the new car’s potential for high fuel economy, its lithium ion battery and the electric motors mounted on its front and rear axles are designed to boost performance. And the combination works well. With its V8 engine and electric motors, the 918 puts out a staggering 887 horsepower and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds – about even with the quickest sport motorcycles.
