Best Car Crashes

Watching this guy crash his million-dollar Porsche while showing off is way too satisfying

Watching this guy crash his million-dollar Porsche while showing off is way too satisfying

Porsche’s 918 Spyder is an 887 horsepower monster that starts at $845,000. Let’s just say this car attracts… a certain type of buyer. And this shirtless guy in St. Tropez definitely fits the bill.

With his model-looking friend in the passenger seat, Mr. 918 tried to peel out in a parking lot full of people to show off. After narrowly missing a few people walking through the parking lot who would have been seriously injured at the very least had they been hit, the guy slammed into a tree.

We’re not sure how it could possibly be any more satisfying. More →

How Porsche plans to take on Tesla

How Porsche plans to take on Tesla

With Tesla proving that there’s a bustling market for electric cars, a number of more traditional automakers have started devoting tremendous resources towards electric car development. BMW is of course one such example, and just a few weeks ago we began to see rumblings that even Apple has plans to develop an electric car of its own.

Now comes word that Porsche is also toying with the idea of releasing an electric car. While Porsche is already one of the world’s top luxury automakers, the Volkswagen owned brand is reportedly interested in attracting a new subset of customers: Those who prioritize environmental cleanliness.

Hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder gets green light

Hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder gets green light

Yesterday, we reported on the Chevy Volt electric car and it’s $41,000 price tag. Now, we know some of you were probably thinking that a Chevy doesn’t exactly fit your personal steez, but we might have something for you. The Porsche supervisory board has green lighted the production of the 918 Spyder hybrid, complete with a 500-horsepower V8 and 109-horsepower electric motor. The new Porsche will allegedly net 78 miles per gallon and will retail for slightly more than the Volt, at around $650,000. We’re unclear as to how a 500-hp Porsche is going to get 78 mpg while a 140-hp Prius gets around 40 mpg… but hey, here’s to hoping those crazy Germans know something we don’t! More →

We’ve always wanted to hit the NY Auto Show and this year, Buick sponsored our trip. There weren’t many brand new announcements (we actually can’t think of a single one that we can remember), but we did spend some quick time going over some of the cars that caught our eyes. Don’t judge us. Check out the brief video we put together after the jump!

Sagem Porsche P9522 Phone unveiled

Sagem Porsche P9522 Phone unveiled

Good news for you Porsche aficionados out there. Looks like Sagem and Porsche are teaming up again for a second version of their Porsche-Branded mobile phone. Carved out of aluminum and hand assembled in France, the sleek and sexy candy bar has all the goods under the hood except for 3G. Supposedly there is no demand for 3G amongst Sagem/Porsche customers. With the presumed future widespread availability of Wi-Fi for mobile Internet access, the designers opted to cut it out. Mmm. Other specs include:

  • 2.8″ touchscreen with reinforced mineral glass
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • Built-in GPS receiver
  • Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Built-in fingerprint reader
  • GSM/EDGE

Available in France next month for a mere €600 ($875).
