so who gives a shit ? I can't wait for a big EMP hit to destroy all hybrid cars so my mechanical injection diesel runs... and runs on home brewed juice while your hybrid is a paper weight. Hybrids are for people who do not care about driving excitement, you might as well take the bus... but you CAN'T cause they are diesel powered !!!

I remember seeing a bunch of those buses when I lived in the city.

Anyone watch the Chris Harris video on the new Porsche 918 Spyder yet..?

yeah saw that. surprised just how much heavier it is cause of all the electronic bits, but seems like it's going to be a crazy car once complete.

Yeah still amazing is the V8 that they built and used for the car, 9k redline, basically a race motor for the street.

Pretty sweet how they were cruising with just electric power and then with a flick of a switch had the motor and mashed the throttle.

Really some amazing engineering there...curious to see how it develops in the other models....i.e. Panamera Wagon

The engine no, but the hybrid technology I believe yes. I think they're trying to simplify the technology as much as possible to make it more available to other cars in their line up....instead of charging $500K for this system...
