At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche unleashed its contribution to green development. The 918 Spyder compares favorably with such cars as the Toyota Prius on emissions numbers, hitting 78 miles per gallon in tests on its parallel hybrid platform. However, even more important to its long-term success, it competes with other supercars on power and speed numbers, hitting 60 mph in less than 3.3 seconds. Additionally, compared to some of the other electric and hybrid offerings in Geneva this week, it not only looks like a car, but it looks spectacular.
As of right now, the model is merely a concept, so those who want a true sportscar while getting on board with green technology will have to continue looking in Tesla's direction. However, and particularly with the company showing a willingness to broaden ideas of what a Porsche can be, it would not be surprising to see the 918 hit showroom floors soon.
