Though development versions of the Porsche 918 hybrid supercar have been spotted testing in Colorado, California and other locations, and though we’ve seen concept and track versions, until now Porsche  has not given the production car its official public debut. Last weekend, with the eyes of the car enthusiast world aimed at the event, Porsche couldn’t have picked a better location or event for that debut, racing the 918 up the hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Fortunately, a British car blogger named Tim aka Shmee, who does great video work with cars, had cameras stationed along Lord March’s famous driveway to record the new debutante’s coming out party.

    Derek:

    Are you posting writing submissions under “TTAC Staff” as a generic, general account for all submissions?

    Then they’re not staff.

    I think everyone posting things that make it to the front page should have their own name on the post. I don’t like how it’s hidden. I would like to see who is writing it.

    Now, obviously having editor-managed accounts for every person who submits would be awkward. Having the editor post for others is also awkward. What needs to be accomplished is an understanding of the WordPress account user priveleges system. There are different levels for different people. Some people can only post, some can post and moderate, some can do everything, and so on. If the editor sets up accounts for a small number of trusted contributors then those contributors will be able to post news much more fluidly. I recommend the implementation of this.

    Now, is Bertel going or not? This is much more important. I don’t even care about the name thing.

    Is bertel going to keep posting here?

    If that’s the same V8 as the Porsche RS Spyder LMP, then I sure hope that wasn’t revving it up. Having seen an RS Spyder race in person many times, the unearthly shriek of that V8 was something that isn’t easily forgotten. That’s one of the most uninspiring sounding sports cars I’ve hear recently, and it’s sad if mufflers and emissions equipment did that to such a lustful powerplant.

    I’ve heard so much about the 918 I thought it had debuted two years ago!

    Is this just a rich kid’s new toy? It doesn’t seem to have the soul of the Carrera GT. Like the electric bikes at Pikes, these don’t have to work too hard to look good. Let’s the results of an entry in LeMons.
