The future of the supercar…hybrid?

This caught my eye today, four of the top luxury sports car makers in the world today, have hybrid concepts?

I’m not sure how I feel about the idea of a hybrid supercar? The look of each of them in the video makes me think, “Absolutely!” Yet have you ever driven a hybrid, half the time I don’t know if it’s on or not? Now go sit in a Porsche or Ferrari, there’s a distinct rumble and feeling of, “why yes I do have 500 horsepower sitting behind me right now!”

My other thought I had was, if you’re spending $250,00+ for a super car, somehow I don’t think you’re concerned about the price of a fill up at your local Petro Canada?

The clip from Gone in 60 seconds where Nic Cage is listening to engine sounds and naming the cars popped into my head while watching this clip to.

“Ok so I hear nothing….ohhh that must be the Porsche 918 Spyder!…Actually No I just haven’t pressed play”
