When the Porsche 918 absolutely shattered Nürburgring street legal car lap time record of 7:08.68 (Held by the Nissan GT-R Nismo) to a new time of 6:57.0 back in 2013, I really had to find out more about this “hybrid” that had revolutionized this niche. The Porsche 959 was the first “Super Legend Car” in my mind, to be honest with you, I believe that the 918 is to all in tense and purposes the 2nd “Super Legend Car” to come out of Stuttgart. As the 918 leads the way in both handling and performance, there is already talk of a hybrid 911, just like the 959, many future Porsche’s will gain technology originated in the 918.
As of today, I am yet to see a Porsche 918 in real life, like most of us, I have to be satisfied with what I can see and hear on the Internet and TV. with only 918 of them having been made, all I can do is hope that I run into one on the streets somewhere 🙂 – The 2015 Porsche 918 gets put through the paces here, enjoy the review by Motor Trend.
