Geneva Auto show

Here is what interests me about the recent  car show in Europe.
Porsche 918 Spyder

This is the Porsche 918 spyder hybrid.  has a 500hp V8,  lithium ion pack with front and rear electric motors at 218hp, total being 718 HP, 0-60 3.6 seconds

VW is coming out with a new truck.  Its a midsized, looks like the Colorado,  called the Amarok  Comes only  with a 4 cyl turbo diesel.  Obviously not for the US market, but that’s not surprising,  None of their other trucks have been here for the last 25 years.

Ferarri is making their California into a hybrid but “Not for the US market”?  Hmmm

Audi R8 has a v8 with  8400 rpm red-line

Lotus is building a “range extender” electric car has a synthetic engine sound.  Your choice of v6, v12, or “futuristic engine sound”  for those children who can afford it.

*this information was gathered from, and their “car tech” podcast.

  1. When will they make something fast and fuel- efficient that can go off- road??

    Chrysler is supposed to be coming out with an all electric Jeep. Seems to have been vaporware tho.
