Got an email newsletter from Porsche about their new 918 hybrid supercar. Front and rear electric motors + a V8.
If you read through their website copy, they go on and on about the superiority of the instant torque, high efficiency, and about their really smart new battery which is, umm ... liquid cooled lithium ion with a 20 Kw home fast charger.
Nice to hear that the genuinely great engineering talent at Porsche has now come to the same conclusion that TM reached years ago.
And when they figure out that they need to ditch the dinosaur motor too, I might even shop their cars again.
But my next sports car is more likely to be a next gen Tesla roadster.
