The Porsche 918 Spyder Is 'Science Fiction On Four Massive Michelins'

Words like "insane" or "ridiculous" don't do the Porsche 918 Spyder justice. Not really. That's why Mike Spinelli describes it as a car for people who want to live in a world "where cyborg elves battle genetically-modified, pure energy assassins with pulse rifles."

I don't think anyone has ever described a car like that before, but then again, the 918 Spyder and its hybrid hypercar competitors are unlike any cars the world has ever seen before.

In the latest video from our friends at /DRIVE, the 887 horsepower 918 Spyder gets put through its paces at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. It's full of high speed runs, slow motion drifts, and big science-y words I barely understand.

All I know is the 918 Spyder is amazing. Welcome to the future.
