And, oh yeah...a '58 fuel-injected Corvette.

I didnt even look at the video clip.Dont care if they cost 845.00 or 845,000.00. If someone gave me one of those things, I'd sell it the same day. I'll stick to Mustangs thankyou, I dont care what those things do, I am not the least bit interested.

Another embarrassment for Porsche if you ask me... they don't know who they are or what their market is anymore, this the latest grasp at a straw trying to find a niche.

And it's not like the price would be buying you perfection either, I bet this thing will have more bugs in it than an encyclopedia.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

I think the best thing about this car is the fact that you have to wait 2.5 years for it to be delivered, and as a result they give you the OPTION of buying a "918 limited edition" 911 so you can drive a Porsche while you are waiting
