Porsche 918 Spyder: The acceleration values are extraterrestrial
918 Spyder with electric power 10 years ago
The 918 was created at a time when people were still installing electric power because they wanted to – not because they had to. For that little extra push when accelerating out or simply to efficiently implement all-wheel drive.
The Porsche 918 Spyder still does all this with an almost sobering implicitness. Really amazing when a car that is almost ten years old still drives like a new car.
Maybe it’s just the Porsche effect. While current cars from some other manufacturers drive as if they were ten years old…
