If ever there was proof that a car can be both mean and green, it’s the new
Porsche 918 RSR Hybrid. This one-seater racecar was unveiled at January’s Detroit
auto Show and offers seemingly endless power amid a promise of just what the
future of production hybrids might mean. following the German automaker’s
2010 918 Spyder in Porsche’s hybrid lineup, this newest concept car comes with
a 563-horsepower gas engine paired with a set of front wheel mounted electric
motors that can contribute an added 204 horses of their own. Still not fast enough
for you? Seated shotgun is an energy-storing flywheel accumulator, which can
provide up to eight seconds of added boost at the driver’s discretion. Now Porsche
just needs to make it street legal.
