Porsche Unveils 918 – $845,000 Luxury Hybrid Sports Car

Luxury automaker Porsche is taking advanced orders for its new hybrid offering, the 918. If you’re deciding if and when to replace your car, consider this: Luxury carmaker Porsche has begun taking orders for its 918 hybrid supercar. The beautiful sports car can be yours – if you’re willing to fork over $845,000.

Following the car’s unveiling at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche has sought to cash in on the notoriety the car has gotten in the press and from fanboys. According to The Wall Street Journal, the decision by Porsche to begin taking orders brings the luxury automaker one step closer to introducing the car into its production lineup.

The car appeals to fans of sports cars and the eco-conscious, thanks to its sleek design and hybrid engine. Many sports cars models available for purchase are gas guzzlers, but the 918 is the rare exception in the market. Porsche said it will manufacture the car at its Stuttgart Zuffenhausen factory starting September 18, 2013.

If you’re interested in buying the car, you’d best move quickly. Porsche says it will limit the number of models to only 918 – a clever marketing ploy. The car features a 500-horsepower V8 engine, two electric motors with an additional 218 horsepower and hybrid technology that boosts the car’s performance. It is projected to get 78 miles per gallon in the U.S.
