Meh it's a super car the price for the paint job is that surprising to me I know some old muscle car paint jobs that cost about 30k
Paul Dickey Sep 21, 2012
Yeah that's a little ludicrous.
Thibault Leroy Sep 21, 2012
70,000 dollars for a paintjob? Wow
Description: The 7 minutes and 14 seconds it took the 918 Spyder to lap the Ring makes it the fourth quickest production car on the leader boards, on par with the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package but a tad slower tha...

First Porsche i'm actually liking in a while...since the GT I guess...
Tomas Arango Ferreira Sep 22, 2012
A bit and maybe...... just maybe you may turn into a little bit of a man......
Tomas Arango Ferreira Sep 22, 2012
Haha, hey kid i really hope for your own sake that you don't get picked on much in school. Tell your dad to pay for some karate classes or some sort of fitness training or sport or something. That may give you some discipline and help you mature a
Daniel Eads Sep 22, 2012
Kyle, I think because it's so low volume. Strange that no one ever brings it up.
Kyle Rawn Sep 22, 2012
Not to nit pick, but shouldn't the Radical SR8 be in there too? It did a 6:55 and is technically a "street legal production"car.
Landon Lauer Sep 22, 2012
I meant $ 100,000 cars
Redge Diakité Sep 22, 2012
With Gates combined? :D
Redge Diakité Sep 22, 2012
And Landon you told the dumbest lie I've ever heard 100,000 cars????!!!! WTF that means that your Dad if he's lets say 60 years old and he started buying cars when he was 30 that means he bought every year 3,350 cars?!!! WOW your Dad is Rockenfeller.
Redge Diakité Sep 22, 2012
Next year's battle would be just magnificent between the Porsche 918 the Ferrari "F70" and the Mclaren P1 :D
Patrick Schalk Sep 22, 2012
BTW I don't think that the Viper is better, I just said I respect it more given the technology or lack thereof in it. "Better" is pretty subjective IMO.
Patrick Schalk Sep 22, 2012
Landon if your dad is Matt Lauer, tell him I'm going to punch him in his stupid hippy face.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Hahahahaha! Funny.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Sep 21, 2012
Hey landon i beleive ur rich. Maybe not the 100,000 part. But u really need to learn not to talk like that. Thats why everyones pissed at u
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Well, since I was supposed to take my father's place, I would've been the next Blade. But damn Honest Abe took the spotlight. We don't really get along with the Lincolns....
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
My dad was George Washington, and he got killed by Vampires, you don't see me begging for mercy.
Kevin Hinkle Sep 21, 2012
Well whatever your height Is I diddnt think they stacked lieing pieces of shit that high
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
I only see my dad twice a year and you don't see me crying about it.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
Connor what does your dad do o wait he's in jail
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Ok, I'm stopping, I'm feeling bad. Hahahahaha!
Kevin Hinkle Sep 21, 2012
Landon how tall are you?
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
My dad did not steal any ones money
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Madoff? He Made-off with a lot of peoples money!! I am in the zone!
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
No I live in a 20000 square foot house
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
As my dad told me get a JOB
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Sep 21, 2012
If porsche wanted to they could build a car that only works for tracks. But thats why porsche is so successful because they realized that making a car fast around a track is half of wat makes a car worth buying. The other half is the comfort.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Oh, so your dad is Bernie Maydolf!! WIN!!
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
You are all selfish people all u do is pick at people how many people only got to see there dad once every month
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Sep 21, 2012
Back to the cars. I dont understand y all the viper fans r saying that its better. Its obvious that if a car as simple and ridiculoudly rigid as that is going to be a better race car than the most TECHNOLOGICALLY advanced cars in the world.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Sep 21, 2012
One giant flaw in his last lie is that private jets hav wifi lol
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
You're not that much younger than me lol. You're pathetic dude.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
My dad is in new York and I never get to see him so go ahead pick on an 15 year old
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Damn, that's right. Well its still late for a 7 year old boy to be up.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
@Abraham tomorrow is saturday there is no school lol.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
Ya and I just bought 3 lions made of diamond.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 21, 2012
Landing you ignorant slut, that was the stupidest, most self absorbed, ignorant, and doucheiest (its a word ok) string of lies I've ever read. Go to bed and get ready for school before your dad whips you with a belt.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
By car buzz I'm getting on my private jet loosing the web
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
, but it can also play games, has a good screen, sleek design etc. I guess there are two totally different ways of looking at it..
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
but the iPhone can also make insanely clear/good calls. The only difference is the flip phone can only do good calls, and alot of other aspects of it sucks like games or screen etc. (interior, ride quality etc). The iPhone, however can do good calls
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
Connor tell your dad apple sucks because I just spent $500 on an iPad an it sucks
Dillon Magee Sep 21, 2012
And the 918 is spectacular.
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
... the new one is of great quality! Possibly one of threat cars under 100k IMO (at least top 3 for me). And I like Connor's analogy, the viper is like a flip phone and the 918 is an iPhone. Sure, the flip phone can make good/clear calls (fast laps)
Dillon Magee Sep 21, 2012
100,000 cars. Really?
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
Chief executive officer lol.
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
@miguel I know the new viper's interior was greatly improved. I was talking about the Prev-Gen viper, specifically the ACR. Trust me, I know
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
I bet u don't know what CEO means
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
CEO of bad lies.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
What every your poor and I'm rich win win
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
Connor I don't own them my dad does because he is a CEO
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
William if I'm not rich y do I own 100,000 cars
William Downs Sep 21, 2012
And anyone can say there rich on the Internet... I'm rich and every one on here is gonna get a free car of there choice under 500k... So I must be rich since I said it.
William Downs Sep 21, 2012
Maybe you should take all that so called money u have and go teach you self some manners an learn how to lie properly if your gonna lie, cause u did it all wrong and just look like an idiot now.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
Connor u r just jealous because I'm rich and ur not
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Cry about it Connor, and when you're done crying, come back on here and talk like a big boy.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
What do u drive 1967 bettle
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Because ring times are relevant Connor. It's too bad you can't comprehend what people are saying.
Landon Lauer Sep 21, 2012
Connor u r stupid and my vette z06 is awesome
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
@Connor CarBuzz brought up you retard.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Connor, and slower. On the ring at least.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
@John C'mon now every one knows that the Viper's interior was greatly improve. It's using materials from Ferrari for god sake what more can you ask for?
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Connor, except is slower. Of course if has more tech. That's why I respect the Viper more. This is still an amazing feat, don't get me wrong. But what do you respect more: a car doing more with less, or a car doing less with more?
Domi Bsaibes Sep 21, 2012
Reasons for not buying this hybrid: 1- It costs loads more than any viper 2- high mpg? Who cares when u're paying 850k! 3- lack of gasoline symphony exhaust notes!!
Matthew Mazzarelli Sep 21, 2012
Agree with most things stated. I'm just saying that this feat should be more appreciated from all enthusiasts since we now know hybrids CAN be fast. 3rd fastest on the ring ever to be precise. A viper is simply a relatively inexpensive race car.
Thibault Leroy Sep 21, 2012
This is a great car but i would take the viper
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
...2 seconds slower than the ACR but still has a ton of tech, great mpg's, great interior etc is great!
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
@patrick and Matt. Id give more props to the Porsche. The ACR is a street legal race car. Huge engine, terrible interior, hard suspension, huge spoiler, hard brakes, no electric nannies. So of course it will be fast. The fact that the 918 is just...
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
Never mind I'll take the porsche, sell it and buy all of my dream cars
Miguel Jimenez Sep 21, 2012
I'll take the Viper thank you very much!
Daniel Eads Sep 21, 2012
Not sure why someone would chose the viper over this but ok your choice.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
That's my point Matthew, this thing has WAY more technology than an ACR. And it's not a typical hybrid like a Prius.
Justin Routh Sep 21, 2012
Agreed this thing is a monster, but ill take the na 8.4L V10 ;)
Matthew Mazzarelli Sep 21, 2012
You must keep in mind, price aside, this is a hybrid. No other company has yet to do this and we can't take it away from Porsche.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Matthew I don't want to even begin to tell you what benefits this car has over the Viper. More props to the Viper.
Matthew Mazzarelli Sep 21, 2012
Yea no kidding though. The viper used OEM Michelin competition tires while this was on Street legal tires. This allows them to get 10 seconds faster than both the standard Chrysler time and Motortrend's time. More props to the Porsche for sure.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Completely agree Matt.
Matt Robbins Sep 21, 2012
Awesome how one of the most primitive cars in the world is faster than all the high tech, nanny driven cars. Long live the Viper!
Oscar Galvan Sep 21, 2012
I hate that the fall back plan to hte hybrid is weight. Look at this te 4th fastest car and look at f1 also have I mentioned Ferrari f70
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Sep 21, 2012
The hybrid technology also adds a lot of weight cause of the batteries.
Das Stig Sep 21, 2012
It's not like prius hybrids, it's like f1 hybrid technology.
Das Stig Sep 21, 2012
because the hybrid technology makes it a lot faster.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
That's pretty damn impressive. Congrats to Porsche.
Daniel Eads Sep 21, 2012
Thame same reason you would make any car. Because its awesome.
Domi Bsaibes Sep 21, 2012
What's the point of making a 850 k$ hybrid supercar?
Brady Fereday Sep 21, 2012
And that's how hybrids should be lol
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
Fourth fastest? 2 seconds behind the ACR? Yes. Yes. Yes. That is very fast!
Tim Simon Kramer Sep 22, 2012
I love how the front looks modern and yet classic, like the Carrera GT now this will look beautiful still in ten years. Not sure about the rear though...
Hemmo Karja Sep 22, 2012
Ok ill take that back. In the brochure the front looks absolutely amazing
Hemmo Karja Sep 22, 2012
I really really like everything else about this car but the front bumper. Its just...well... boring. And looks like its made in 2005 not 2012
Nick Benz Sep 21, 2012
Holy bumper gap batman!
Curtis Clayton Sep 21, 2012
Am I the only one who thinks it look like an F430 at the front?
William Downs Sep 21, 2012
Those are the lights there using
Wyatt Gordon Sep 21, 2012
I still really dislike the exhaust
Thibault Leroy Sep 21, 2012
The exhasts and lights look great
Dennis Choong Sep 21, 2012
I still can't get over that exhaust... lol
Description: A clear-coat carbon-fiber targa roof is also an option. With just 918 examples to be made, Porsche seems to be offering enough choices to keep each one distinct. Other new details to emerge are the fa...

Somebody stripped my AC so, I'd say it's not worth it. I'd way rather have my AC back.
Daniel Eads Sep 21, 2012
In the ACR they strip out all that just to save 50 pounds. So about right.
Skylar Drake Sep 21, 2012
So the entire air conditioning system, sound system, armrest, and door panels are only about 77 pounds? That seem light to anyone else?
Tyler Ray DeFord Sep 21, 2012
It looks like a small porsche is driving out of a slightly bigger Porsche.
Jon Ashley Sep 21, 2012
This IS the production model. This is one of those rare occasions where the production model actually looks a lot like the concept.
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
This is gorgeous
Janya Pulusu Sep 21, 2012
I wish the production model looked like dis
Hemmo Karja Sep 22, 2012
I guess this is the car i would buy if i had too much money
Nicolas Pons Sep 21, 2012
Stunning, been waiting forever for this, a super car with 70 mpg so now hippies can't rip on us for liking super cars
Nick Benz Sep 21, 2012
Lol might have legal consequences for driving??
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
Love the martini
David Liebe Hart Sep 28, 2012
Incredible, yes! But necessary in a driver's car, absolutely not. Weight and distractions are not to your benefit in a car meant to be fast. Still stoked for this car though
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Sep 21, 2012
The drivers eye view has been the backround on my laptop for 4 months mow and i still get excited everytime i turn it on lol
Jon Ashley Sep 21, 2012
Love the centre console
Jairo Rguez Sep 21, 2012
Good job on the interior Porsche.
Patrick Schalk Sep 21, 2012
Damn this is really nice. Props.
Brady Fereday Sep 21, 2012
Finally a futuristic interior that went into production I can't wait to see this tech trickle down
Matt Piccolo Sep 21, 2012
Wow! That's sick
Dennis Choong Sep 21, 2012
Thumbs up for the interior
John Serely Sep 21, 2012
That might be my new favorite interior
Hemmo Karja Sep 22, 2012
Id prefer the rhodum silver metallic or meteor gray
Wyatt Gordon Sep 21, 2012
I'll have the Targa top version in dark blue, please.
Mike Ralsh Sep 21, 2012
Meteor gray metallic for me please
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Sep 21, 2012
Meteor Grey Metallic ftw
Max Müller Sep 21, 2012
Absolutely right!
Dillon Dixon Sep 21, 2012
Sapphire blue metallic please! That is gonna look so damn good!
Austin Bride Sep 22, 2012
Mmmm love the yellow
Theviper007 Sep 21, 2012
Yellow with black tintef lights for some reason
Ryan Haverty Sep 21, 2012
The Yellow looks awesome too Carlton! Hell all the colors look great, I also think they should have offered a green to match the color of the brake calipers!
Ryan Haverty Sep 21, 2012
Liquid metal silver! I do agree the Red looks awesome but people (non-enthusiasts) like you said would prob mistake it for a Ferrari. This car is so incredible!
Harrison Armstrong Sep 21, 2012
I would get the red, however every numbskull on the street would call it a Ferrari.
