The motoring press came up with the term “hypercar” when fast-moving objects like the Porsche 918, the McLaren P1 and the LaFerrari started opening dimensional portals around the likes of a 911 Turbo S, the 458 Italia or the 12C.

Let this insane three-way battle between the #8 Audi, #17 Porsche and #7 Audi LMP1-class World Endurance Championship prototypes illustrate all the fun nuances of hybrid race cars. Running out of the added electric power must hit you like a brick when you’re in the middle of a battle like this.

Volkswagen Group board chairman Ferdinand Piëch stunned the business world this weekend by quitting in a huff (or getting ousted, depending on who you ask) following a very public disagreement with the board over who his successor will be.
