In case you have surplus cash sitting around, doing absolutely nothing, hang on to it until the end of 2013. This is when Porsche finally wants to crank up production of its Über-Porsche, the 918 Spyder. Porsche has finished the initial prototypes, which are cleverly camouflaged: If you see something whizzing by, and you think to yourself: “This looked just like a Porsche 917 race car,” then you actually saw a 918 in drag.

If you haven’t heard already, the 918 is is designed as a plug-in hybrid vehicle combining a high-performance combustion engine with electric motors. The car is built as full carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque with unit carrier, has fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering and the upward-venting “top pipes” exhaust system.
