    Whoopsy:


    Ouch, even farther away, now you will drive a few hrs more in a Canucks jersey to get here haha







    As much as it pains me to say it, it'd almost be worth it to see a 918 up close... almost. ;)

    Car is sooo good looking - out of words. The life pictures are amazing! Just white would not be my color of choice!


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Super excited.

    Just got an email this morning from Porsche Canada CEO about an invite to Zuffenhausen this coming April 6-9. Gonna visit the 918 manufactory, the Porsche Museum and might even get to lunch with Walliser at the Christophorus Restaurant. Then head to the Weissach test track for a drive in the 918!

    Very likely I will see my actual car on the production floor too as it's scheduled to complete sometime in May.

    That is great! What an experience that will be.kiss



    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    God, now you are killing me for the wait till April. lol

    But what's good to know is Porsche didn't miss their target, production really started in February after delay after delay since last September, those are real customer cars being assembled on the floor. At least one is destined for the middle east with the letters on the mirror.

    I am guessing that was the Russian tour. And from then till at least April Porsche will be running 918 factory tours for all the countries. 

    I am really excited as my tour's timing means I have a very good chance to see my actual car on the production floor. 

    Another info noted was when he said the 918 is running ahead of the CGT for the sales number at the end. Amazing consider the 918 is more than doubled the price of a CGT yet they are able to sell more of it.

    This evening's Top Gear program had a fun 918 review with lots of P1 v 918 commentary.... Hamster loved the 918 and Jennifer (jeremy) looked the P1. They said they hope to have a P1 v 918 Top Gear track 1on1 later in the year - Can't wait!

    I personally don't like to see this car in any of the liveries. It cheapens the car IMO.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    the complexity of the car is just mindboggling -  I am sure it will loose the lap-time on TG against the P1 - but I'd still have a 918 over anything - the packed technology is just amazing


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Black is the best colour on the 918 by far. Jaw-droppingly beautiful!

    indecision

    At first I thought the blue exhaust flames were CG add on, then after a few replays I am convinced it's real flames shooting out.
