Porsche 918 Spyder
Running on electricity alone, the 918 Spyder is EPA-rated at the equivalent of 67 mpg. That means this is a car its owner could theoretically use to bop back and forth to work every day never using any gasoline at all—just like a Nissan Leaf. So spend your $847,975 with a clear conscience that you’re doing something good for the environment. Then go find a freeway on-ramp and let the 608-hp 4.6-liter V-8 party down with the two electric motors; you’ll watch the air around the car froth up as it uses all four wheels to claw from rest to 60 mph in a staggering 2.2 seconds. Simply put, this is the quickest production car we’ve ever tested. The Ferrari LaFerrari may yet match the feat—we have yet to test that one—but the McLaren P1 fell a half-second shy. Both of them are hybrids, too.
