    It almost looks like it should have a Lotus badge on it. I think it looks great except for the boring colour.

    Porsche 918 Spyder destroys the Carrera GT, lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7 min 14 seconds
    BY STEVE DAVIES SEPTEMBER 2012
    .
    With 12 months to go before Porsche’s 918 Spyder hits the road, the development car has already exceeded Porsche’s goal of lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes and 30 seconds.
    .
    In fact, earlier this week a Porsche 918 Spyder prototype turned in a single-lap best time of just 7min 14 seconds for the 12.9 mile circuit.
    .
    The 918 Spyder is powered by a mid-mounted 4.6-litre petrol engine, producing 572bhp and ‘two’ electric motors adding a further 212bhp to deliver a total of 784bhp. Peak torque is quoted at 627lb-ft (850Nm), more than 44% greater than the Carrera GT.
    .
    The combustion engine drives the rear wheels, while each electric motor is used to power either front or rear axle respectively.
