Is Porsche going soft with its future 918 hybrid?

When you think of Porsche, one thing comes to mind: racing. First! A Porsche is made for racing. Of course, I know Porsche is making the Cayenne, an SUV. And the Panamera, a sedan. But the heart and soul of Porsche belongs to sports cars racing. The 24 hours of Le Mans, the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and every racetrack all over the world, that’s where Porsches are raised. The 918?

Porsche has just released the video above, you can see there the 918 being driven on a small country road by a man with a white shirt, and that is nice, but we want more. How about Walter Röhrl driving the 918 flat out at the Nürburgring Nordschleife? Jay Leno had a closer look at Pebble Beach, watch it below:

Again, that only makes me salivating for more. I can’t wait to see the 918 hard charging on a racetrack!
