2015 Porsche 918 Spyder First Test: Fastest 0-60 Time Ever? Plus Porsche 959! – Ignition Ep. 109

On this week’s Ignition, Carlos Lago has a second go at Porsche’s 918 hypercar. The goal: to run the 918 through the full gauntlet of MT’s instrumented testing, including 0-60, quarter mile, braking, figure 8, and a blistering real-time hot lap around Big Willow race track with pro driver Randy Pobst. Carlos also gets a rare chance to experience the 918’s ancestor, the Porsche 959. The 959 was a remarkable piece of automobile history that was decades ahead of its time with much of it’s technology only appearing in common vehicles within the last ten years or so. The 918 attempts something very similar, featuring very advanced technology, including a naturally aspirated V8 that works with a seamlessly integrated electric motor to provide extra boost. Can Porsche’s new hypercar achieve the same effect that its predecessor did? Only time will tell, but stay tuned for the record-breaking review.
