The image above was shot in 2010, but years of teasing, concepts, announcements, and press releases come to a head in Frankfurt this year when Porsche finally shows us the production version of the 918 Spyder hybrid supercar
. Before you roll your eyes at that oxymoron, consider that hybrid supercars are sort of a big deal these days. OK, now
you can roll your eyes.
For Porsche purists, there's rumored to be a new 911 Blue Edition that lowers the entry point for the rear-engined icon. This variant is said to be less powerful than other current 911 models
, but also lighter, more efficient, and -- perhaps most importantly -- less expensive.
