How long have we been waiting for a drive in the Porsche 918? As long as we'e known about it. Chris Harris got an early test drive of a production prototype of the hybrid-electric insanity machine. What did he think? Let's watch.
It's only three laps around Porsche's own circuit at Leipzeig, but as Chris says, "Do you want to be the journalist who says, 'no I don't want to drive your car because I only get three laps'? No, you don't."
But aside from the driving impressions, Chris's look at some of the technologies on display — like a carbon fiber dash panel galvanized with metal — is worth the price of admission (i.e., zero dollars) for car-tech nerds.
