The folks over at Autocar have been in the automotive-review business long enough to know what makes a good car and what makes a bad one. So yeah, their opinion counts.
Having said that, it’s been a while since we last saw Steve Sutcliffe gush over a car the way he did the Porsche 918 Spyder . And really, you can’t blame the man for doing so because the 918 Spyder really is a treat to the senses.
The 918 Spyder’s combination of throaty power and quiet elegance, a paradox if there ever was one, lends itself to the growing belief that this supercar really is a Porsche masterpiece. Sutcliffe knows what masterpieces look and feel like in his years as one of the finest auto journos in the world.
So seeing him light up after pushing the pedal of the 918 Spyder made us think how cool it would be to drive the hell out of Porsche’s latest creation. If it could make a Sutcliffe turn into a kid once again, who knows how any of us would react if we’re driving this incredible piece of German engineering around.
From the power, to the handling, to the grip, to everything else in-between, the 918 Spyder really has that ’it’ factor that few cars in the world can proudly claim it has.
