Porsche just announced it’s now taking orders for the 918 Spyder hybrid supercar that stole the show in Geneva. The price is an impressive $845,000.
Yes, it will sell out even with a sticker like that, partly because only 918 will be built.
So the question is not can you afford it – that falls under the heading “If you have to ask” – but rather can you wait the three years or so it will take for Stuttgart to build and deliver the damn thing.
The stats: 718 hp; 0–60 mph in 3.1 seconds; $845,000; only 918 will be built
The good news is even if oil is $200 a barrel by then the 918′s 4.0-liter V8 engine is backed up by a pair of electric motors which, despite being able to do 0–60 mph in 3.1 seconds, can still deliver 78 miles to the gallon.
Although if you do have a spare $845K lying around you’ve probably got an assistant to worry about crap like that.
