Like any new high performance vehicle, the camera happy, uber-sexy Porsche 918 Spyder prototype was subjected to the extraneous run of the Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany. While most companies claim a run of one of the most treacherous courses known to man as an industry standard test of the vehicles performance, we like to think of it more as an in your face look how fast my car goes, test. So it’s never a surprise when an automaker makes very public their “test” time. Without skipping a beat, Porsche made official their 7:14 second run in the all new 918 Spyder prototype.
This impressive time from the 800-hp, 78 mpg, all-wheel drive hybrid supercar ranks it somewhere in-between the Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Package (7:14.64) and the Donkervoort D8 RS (7:14.89). Also, this makes it the fastest official time by a hybrid so far. Making it known on their official Facebook page, the rather snarky German bunch finished off their post: “any questions left?” Sure, we have a question. What will the McLaren P1 do?
