In quick succession, two of the worlds most highly regarded sports car manufacturers have released hybrid concepts.  In the case of Porsche, it is the 918 Spyder Hybrid.  While still a concept, Porsche is the one manufacturer who rarely shares something with the world if they aren’t going to manufacture it.  The stats, while not mind blowing, are worth noting: 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, gets 78 miles per gallon, and 16 miles on pure electric charge.

Similarly, Ferrari has released a hybrid concept car based off of the 599 GTB.  The car’s performance is in line with the petrol version: 200 mph, zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds, and 125 mph in 10.5 seconds.  The hybrid setup results in a decrease in emissions (35% over the petrol model) and increased fuel mileage (25 mpg for the hybrid as compared to 16 mpg for the petrol version).
