It Takes A Hybrid To Get Me Interested In Porsches

You'll have to wait until 2014, but for a mere $845,000 you get:
  • Prius gas mileage in a supercar: Roughly 78MPG from a 500+ horsepower V-8 with two electric motors adding 218 more
  • You can do 0-60 mph in about 3.1 seconds, top out at 199 mph and also putt around for 16 miles on electric alone, three miles more than the coming plug-in Prius. It can do bursts up to 94 mph on electric  but don't expect 16 miles of range that way.
  • You'll own the most expensive and arguably most exotic Porsche ever.
A full charge on a 110-volt plug for the lithium battery pack will take about seven hours, but quick-charge options are being researched.
