It’s not just vintage and classic cars that draw the crowds at the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Luxury car manufacturers also use this important, headline making car enthusiast event to debut new car models.
Porsche is showing off the Porsche 918 Spyder concept plug-in hybrid supercar, just recently approved for production. This is an ultra-high-performance mid-engine sports car that is also a hybrid, with an estimated 94 mpg fuel efficiency, which is about double the mpg of the Toyota Prius. And the Prius does not accelerate from zero-to-sixty in 3.2 seconds. But, the Prius also costs a fraction of the price of the new Porsche 918 Spyder.
