It all started in 1986 with the Porsche 959. Then the Porsche 911 GT1 comes in 1996. Then in 2004 came the Carrera GT. When I say that it started, I mean the Porsche to create a really crazy price stratospherically race car on the street.

Both McLaren and Ferrari laferrari P1 may have a higher top speed, a little “124 mph faster few seconds at 186 mph, but also about twice the $ 845,000 Porsche 918 Spyder price. (I do not know you, but I think if the 918 Spyder Porsche wants to sell more than $ 1 million. It certainly has performance qualities. The only problem is it does not seem as exotic as McLaren or Ferrari or Lamborghini and Poison Koenigsegg Agera. )
Well, look at the facts, we are. First, it is a hybrid plug-in that takes about seven hours to fully charge an average of 110 volts, 10 amperes domestic online.

Do not blink or you’ll miss the flashing 124 hours mile in 7.9 seconds. 186 came a little “later in 23.0 seconds. They are removed at high speed of just over 211 miles per hour.

There are five of them: E-Power, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid, the hybrid race and Hot Lap.
E-Power Mode Full Power Eco with a range of 18 miles and a top speed of 93 mph. Sixty-two years, as I said before, they met in seven seconds in this mode.
