    918 units will be made for the Porsche 918 Spyder? Wow, that's a nice move for them, to make sure that it'll be one of a kind (well, 918 of a kind, but you catch my drift, right?) car for the enthusiasts out there. But one thing that surprises me is that it will only take 3.2 seconds for a 0-60, that's totally fast!

    Clovis,

    Yes, very fast and expensive. Plus Porsches first hybrid electric car! I think there will be more on the way from Porsche.
