Porsche 918 Spyder: a Ride In Porsche's Hybrid Hypercar - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Porsche was testing the 918 at the Nurburgring, they invited us to take a quick ride on the road, not on the track sadly. I normally hate these shotgun features, unless they involve Group B cars, but the 918 needs some understanding.
The Porsche 918 Spyder Tested - CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
The plug-in hybrid, mid-engine hypercar: The Porsche 918 Spyder.
Tested by /DRIVE's Chris Harris at the Valencia circuit in the winter of
2013. The Porsche 918 Spyder has come a long way since when we first saw
it at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. Competing against the Ferrari
LaFerrari and McLaren P1, it is the cheapest of the trio of new hypercars
at a base price of $845,000.
The engine weights 140 kg according to Porsche and it delivers 608 horsepower (453 kW) at
8,500 rpm and 528 N·m (389 lbf·ft) of maximum torque. This is
supplemented by two electric motors delivering an additional 279 hp (208
kW) - One 154 hp electric motor drives the rear wheels in parallel with the
engine and also serves as the main generator.
Porsche 918 Spyder - On The Road
BrianZuk records the incredible all-new Porsche 918 Spyder. This is the
only one in the world at this time. The video begins with the cover being
stripped off the 918, then the 918 starts up and drives to the front of the
Lodge at Pebble Beach for the Concours. The video then shows all angles of
the 918, both the exterior and interior. And finally, the video concludes
with the 918 driving off in all-electric mode into a trailer. Incredible
car, enjoy this rare footage...

A hell of a ride at the Nordschleife.
Liri Farfus followed countless races closely, always hoping her husband
puts in a great result, coming home without a scratch. However, she wants
to experience a lap of the Nordschleife by herself - and joined Augusto as
a co-driver in the "Green Hell". Was it a very good idea, watch this video
and find out.

The Singer 911: All You Ever Wanted to Know - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To some people, mainly Porsche people, this is the most desirable car you
could own. Its creators are a bunch of zany, brilliant Porsche-files who
have invested their lives in re-imagining the classic Porsche 911 shape for
the year 2013. We tour the factory, speak to the team and drive it on road
The 2012 Porsche Boxster S - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Porsche's new 981 Boxster is an all-new design. Bigger, but lighter than
before. We went to the launch event in the South of France to see how good
it was. And whether a man can now buy the girl's Porsche.

Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going
examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the
most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to
drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up
