Porsche 918 Spyder (2014 -?)

The 918 Spyder is the most technically advanced and most complex vehicle Porsche has ever screwed, welded, molded and bonded together. It is the German brand's challenger to the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari. It features a mid-mounted, dry-sump-lubricated, 4.6-liter V8 engine that generates 608 hp when left to its own devices. Combined with a trio of electric motors, which produce 286 hp, the total system horsepower for the 918 Spyder rests at 887 hp. 0-62 mph takes 2.8-seconds. Top speed is 202 mph. It'll toodle along on electric power at speeds up to 93 mph and will get anywhere from 10 to 20 miles per charge. It can be charged in four hours on a German 230-volt outlet, which means times should be similar on an American 220-volt plug. A DC fast charger, which is an optional extra with the 918, can recharge a drained battery in 25 minutes.(
