TGIF: Watch a Porsche 918 Spyder Do Tire-Shredding Donuts
The biggest travesty in the world of supercars is not the fact that they're so insanely expensive that normal folk can't attain them. It's the fact that so many of the people who can afford to buy them never, ever use them as the insanely fun super machines that they are. Car Lifestyle wants to combat that trend. In this short video, CL takes out @ItsWhiteNoise's Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Edition for a bit of an empty parking lot workout. Sitting on HRE Wheels and winter tires, the 918 is given the full up-close detailed showcase treatment before the team gets the car whipping around doing donuts.

If you've been living in a submarine for the past few years and somehow haven't heard, the 918 Spyder with the Weissach Package is one of the most advanced road cars on the planet. It's a mid-engined hybrid with a 4.6-liter V8, two synchronous motors, and a lith-ion battery.
It has a total of 887 horsepower and 944 lb-ft of torque. Beneath its skin is a carbon fiber monocoque. That combines for a car that got around the Nurburgring in 6:57. As mentioned, these things are built to be fun. Use them accordingly.
