Of all the cars that have entered Jay Leno’s Garage, you can make a case that very few are as advanced technologically as the Porsche 918 Spyder. The hybrid supercar from Stuttgart recently paid a visit to the comedian’s auto lair and, as expected, Leno raised some serious hell with it.
But before he got a chance to take the 918 Spyder out on the road, Leno had a pretty interesting discussion with the 918’s Client Relations Manager, Daniel Eastman.
Among the many topics discussed by the two, some of the more pertinent highlights of the discussion centered on just how much of a technological marvel the 918 Spyder really is. Whether it’s the fact that it can hit 70-plus mpg or that it can still hit 900 horsepower, despite being that fuel efficient, the 918 Spyder is really the best of both worlds. It’s an achievement that flies in the face of those who believed you can’t achieve one without sacrificing the other.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is one of those cars that will be talked about decades from now; a true crowning moment for Porsche that will not be forgotten anytime soon.
And in case you’re wondering, Leno took the 918 Spyder for a drive with Eastman riding shotgun. Some guys are just blessed...
