2015 Porsche 918 Spyder Review

Description

Motor Trend - On this week's Ignition, Carlos Lago has second go at the near 1 million dollar 918 hypercar from Porsche, and also gets a rare chance to experience it's ancestor, the Porsche 959. The 959 was a remarkable piece of automobile history that was decades ahead of its time with much of it's technology only appearing in common vehicles within the last ten years or so. The 918 attempts something very similar, featuring very advanced technology, including a naturally aspirated V8 that works with a seamlessly integrated electric motor to provide extra boost. Can Porsche's new hypercar achieve the same effect that its predecessor did? Only time will tell, but stay tuned for the review.
