If you’ve ever stared the devil in the face, the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder might look familiar. This meticulously engineered supercar, with its rippling exterior and formidable combined 887 hp gas-electric hybrid engine, is a fiendishly inspired creation. Like sorcerers, Porsche’s engineers summoned an array of elements from across the periodic table to craft feather-light components such as forged magnesi­um wheels and an Inconel (look it up) exhaust system. In addition to being explosively quick, the 918, with its extra-low center of gravity and on-demand all-wheel drive, is one of the most maneuverable production cars ever made. And although it may appear to have been forged in the depths of Hades, it is surprisingly friendly to the environment. So does it hit 666 mph? Only one way to find out!
