This Porsche 918 Spyder Makes a Mean Snowmobile

If you must drift on ice, use a 1,000-horsepower hybrid supercar.

A supercar’s natural habitat is the copious sun and dry tarmac of places like Dubai, Scottsdale, and Monaco. But as it turns out, the only thing keeping these warm-weather monsters from becoming all-weather racers was a good set of snow tires. Realizing this, some of the industrious and perpetually snow-bound folks in Finland saw fit to outfit a 918 Spyder, Porsche’s 800+ horsepower, V8-and-electric hybrid with studded snows. The result? A rear-drive Porsche as happy clawing up the ice as Edmund Hillary. Take our word: the slow-motion footage of a 918 drifting across a slab of polar ice will haunt the more sensual of your automotive dreams.
