Porsche Green-Lights 918 Spyder

Porsche has announced that the 918 Spyder hybrid sportscar has been approved for production.

Packing a 3.4l V-8 and an electric motor at each axle, the 918 takes the brands flagship position vacated a few years ago by the Carrera GT.  Expected to be limited production, the car will showcase the engineering prowess of the Porsche brand and establish them as a leader in hybrid technologies that will trickle into the rest of the line during the next decade or so.

Expect a total output of over 700hp and a 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds when the car hits production in a few years.
