There are far, far better reasons to buy Porsche's 918 Spyder supercar than its ability to sneak around on electric power.
But even so, there's something very compelling about an 887-horsepower car that can also take you further and faster in emissions-free city driving than a Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid.
According to Porsche, the 918 Spyder will go 18 miles on its battery - the plug-in Prius achieves nearer 15 miles.
You only get to experience electric power for the briefest of moments in Porsche's new video, but to be far the rest of the video is much more interesting (and a great deal louder) anyway.
