Porsche revealed the Porsche 918 Spyder, a hybrid concept car, on March 2 at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.  A visionary automobile with amazing speed, superb handling, and sleek styling, the Porsche 918 Spyder proves that “green” cars can still be sexy enough to entice even hard-core sports car enthusiasts.

Specs
3.4 liter V8, 500 HP engine
2 electric motors, 218 HP
7-speed transmission
Body: carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFP), aluminum and magnesium
Acceleration: Reaches 62 mph in 3.2 seconds
Top Speed: 198 mph
Fuel Efficiency: 78 miles per gallon
CO2 Output: 70 grams per kilometer

For another super cool hybrid sports car, check out the Ferrari Hyrbid 4WD, also exhibiting at the Geneva Motor Show.

Powered by a 500-HP V-8 engine and one electric motor for each axle, the Porsche 918 Spyder can reach close to 200 mph at top speed while emitting a mere 70 grams of carbon dioxide per km. Drivers choose from four modes supplying different combinations of electric and non-electric power tailored to performance needs. A lithium-ion battery is plugged in to recharge the electric motors.

The two-seat interior cradles riders in comfort, while a Range Manager combines mapping and navigation tools to inform the driver of station locations providing recharging services. The Porsche 918 Spyder is aesthetically pleasing, satisfactorily speedy, and environmentally conscious enough to inhabit the daydreams of contemporary sports car enthusiasts.

    Purist roadster is more powerful, more efficient, more extreme - and will be the lightest
    Porsche when it goes on sale in March. A high-tech monocoque body shell made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFP) keeps weight under 3,300
    pounds, and legendary suspension tuning helps it lap the Nordschleife of Nrburgring quicker than the
    Carrera GT. There is, however, one flaw in the Bugatti's myriad of impressive technology, which, in the hands of the wrong driver, would cause it to lag behind its older rival.
