During the Show, and you walked Porsche we asking customers interested in buying a 918 to fill out a letter of intent to acquire a unit. The thing seems to have led, for statements published in Coach Michael Macht, chief of the house in Stuttgart, where he ensures that the precious concept will become the successor to the 959 and the Carrera GT, since the interest has exceeded firm expectations of the manufacturer.
What has left us a bit cold (after the rush of good news) is knowing that things could take five years, bringing the first 918 would tread the asphalt road registered in 2015. Porsche then you should be running (and possibly winning) at Le Mans with its LMP1 hybrid that appears, presumably in 2011 or 2012, so in some ways, this new vehicle “halo” would serve to bring to market the technique wins in the races, see and say a “race tested technology”. Can we wait that long?
