Porsche’s greenest and fastest car ever has finally made its appearance, with a black-and-white paint job that is reminiscent of the old 917 racers. It is the much anticipated 2014 918 Spyder, a supercar with a really impressive hybrid powertrain.

It flaunts three engines: the main 562-horsepower 4.6-liter V8, an 80 kW electric motor on the front axle, and a 90 kW electric motor on the rear axle. Together, the three engines can push this Porsche from 0 to 62 mph in only 2.3 seconds, before reaching the maximum speed of 202 mph. What’s even more amazing is the fuel consumption rate: only 78 mpg (or a little over 3 liters per 100 kilometers).

The vehicle boasts a carbon fiber reinforced polymer monocoque, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear axle steering, upward-venting exhaust system, and a 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery that can keep the wheels rolling for up to 15.5 miles  at 95 mph without any help from the main V8 engine. When this baby will enter the market in 2013, it will bear quite a hefty price tag: $845,000.
