Long before the Prius, a hybrid car was a foreign make with a honkin' big American V8 dropped into it. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Pantera is just such a hybrid, and its performance is bred to be high.
There was almost no 9-2-H8 for yesterday's Porsche as a solid 75% of you were willing to go black and never go back. That GT obviated the onus of Porsche traditions as it was powered by a water-cooled V8 engine; and it kept that engine up front, rather than dingle-burying it out back. Today's candidate is also V8-powered, although its Ford-sourced small block sits neither in front nor in back, but in a Goldilocks this one's just right mid-placement.
