WHAT IS IT?
It’s the Porsche 918 RSR. Here’s the recipe – take one part Porsche 918 concept car, plonk in a massively powerful hybrid drivetrain from the 911 GT3 R hybrid, paint it in a colour scheme that reminds you of the Gulf colours but isn’t really, and voila! You have a hot new Porsche to wow everyone at the Detroit Motor show! A 563 hp V8 is further complimented by a 150 bhp electric drive system to provide a maddening 767 horses. Green and mean. Just like the Hulk.
WHY IS IT HERE?
The world’s oil reserves will soon run out, the carbon emissions will nearly choke us all, Twilight will have another sequel coming and hybrids are supposedly our saviour…really, do we have to remind you over and over again?
