If they were better cars I would have no problem with hybrids. Also if they were being built out of consumer demand from a free market instead of being mandated by socialist government I would have no problem. Being forced into them big problem

Hybrid cars generally have less power so will it suit a Porsche. However, it is a good car

Bottom line is hybrids are here to stay, combustion engines will keep getting smaller until they are only in niche or service vehicles. It's not about how much oil is left, or batteries in landfills, it's about making better cars and more money.

Didn't realize I was one of the few men that read these articles. If you EVER purchase a hybrid you are of the female gender. Nuff said. P.S. Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Bugatti don't need an SUV. Porsche's are a thing of the past.

Agree with @emil hybrid tech is changing so quickly you can't discount ever owning one. If you were told five or six years ago about how the 918, F70, and even BMW i8 perform you would have thought it nuts. Who knows in another five years.

You'll have to stop being small minded Erich, hybrids are the future, we just have to face it, Porsches supercar is a hybrid, hell, even the next Ferrari Supercar will be a hybrid, so you're basically telling me you don't want an F70?
