Porsche blends the best of both worlds with their newest release: the 918 Spyder Hybrid. Where many sportscars lack in sustainability, the Spyder Hybrid boasts both a 127hp electric motor on its front axle and a 154hp hybrid module on its rear axle. These features contribute to a laughably powerful combination of 887hp, for which the 918 Spyder Hybrid can thank its blistering 211mph top speed. Drivers can toggle between pure electric, V8, and hybrid modes, offering versatility for varying environments. These features might be too good to be true though, unless the car's $845,000 price tag is personally manageable. Look for the 918 Spyder Hybrid to hit the U.S. in early 2014.
