Porsche 918 Spyder

 Hottest new cars and trucks for 2015
Debuting for 2015, the 918 Spyder is a limited production mid-engined plug-in hybrid supercar with stratospheric performance and a sticker price to match, starting at around $850,000. Porsche says car that can reach 62 mph from a standing start in a mere 2.8 seconds, which places it up with some of the fastest production cars on the planet. Its V8 engine and electric motors work in tandem to deliver a maximum 887 horsepower. Fortunately the 918 includes all-wheel-drive and state-of-the-art chassis engineering to help keep it adhered to the pavement, even at frightening speeds. Of interest to affluent environmentalists, the 918 Spyder can operate for nearly 18 miles solely on electricity in a selectable “ePower” mode. The ground-hugging 918 Spyder assumes a striking pose with its over accentuated muscular curves, though only the few and fortunate will ever get to see one in person other than perhaps at an auto show.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
