The Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid made its driving debut on a closed road in Monterey California, just days prior to its appearance at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
After being shipped over from Germany by plane, engineers handed the keys of the new 918 Spyder Hybrid to Porsche AG Design Chief Michael Mauer. The car drove under its own power, which comes from the mid mounted 3.4 liter V8 out of the RS Spyder as well as an all electric mode which powers just the front wheels. The video below was created for Porsche by our friend J.F. Musial at Tangent Vector. Watch and enjoy (if you’re viewing this via email, you may need to click the title of the post to see the video, trust me, it’s worth it!).
