I am a big fan of Porsche sports cars, but sometimes the company's high-end sports cars have questionable designs. The Carrera GT is a perfect case in point; the car was a bit strange looking from some angles. Porsche has now debuted a new super car in Geneva called the 918 Spyder.

The car looks a bit odd from some profiles and has some of the ugliest wheels I have ever seen. The car is a mid-engine two seater that offers super car performance with CO2 emissions of a compact car. Porsche pulls that off by making the vehicle a plug-in hybrid.

The V8 engine of the 918 has 500HP along with three electric motors providing 160kW. Porsche claims the car is good for 94mpg. Porsche offers no performance figures for the car.
