As evening arrived halfway across the globe in Geneva, Switzerland, Michael Macht, the President and CEO of Porsche AG presided over a special world debut – the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Concept Car.

A mid-engined 2 seater, the 918 Spyder striked a perfect balance between 2 initiatives. On one side, the concept addressed numerous challenges, from climate changes to limited resources, the world will face in the next century. On the other, it is a representation of engineering ingenuity, passion for design, tempered with raw power & speed. Under its hood is a 500-hp V8 engine working in tandem with 3 electric motors totaling 160 kW of output. With a fuel consumption of 94 miles per gallon (mpg) and a CO2 emission of 70 grams per kilometer, the end product is an exotic car with CO2 footprint of a compact plug-in hybrid.

The Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Concept Car will be on display starting tomorrow at Geneva Motor Show‘s Hall 6
