Many say that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that is a case, then a video should be worth at least a million words (give or take a couple thousand words). As I was doing research for today’s article featuring the new Porsche 918 Spyder, I was having a tough time with coming up with words to describe how amazing this car is. So, after writing about two paragraphs, I decided to stop bumbling and instead focus my attention on finding a good collection of videos from other motoring magazines and television shows featuring the Porsche 918 Spyder. So, after spending an hour searching all over the internet for some quality video mentioning this wonderful Porsche, I was able to collect these three videos for your viewing pleasure.
The first video is from You Tuber Cars. This eleven minute video showcases how Porsche technicians hand-build this supercar in a factory so clean, you could probably eat of it (but, I would highly not recommend doing this). After watching this video, I can guarantee that if you were not a fan of this supercar before, you will be now or if you do not like Porsche in general, at least you will appreciate the process that goes into making this wonderful supercar.
The second video is from BBC’s most popular motoring television show, Top Gear. In this video, Richard Hammond takes a silver Porsche 918 Spyder around the Yas Marina Circuit in Dubai and showcases what this car is capable of when there are no limitations or restrictions. This video is a pleasure to watch simply based on the expressions on Hamster’s face and the brilliant editing done by the Top Gear team. Spoiler Alert: Hammond would rather have this over the McLaren P1 (given that he prefers Porsche in general).
The third and final video is from EVO, a popular motoring magazine from U.K. As always, I saved the best video for last because this video combines the elements from the two previous videos. While the first video is very technical, showcasing the mechanical aspects of the car, the second video is much more entertaining and fun to watch with bits of technical information to highlight the key features of the Porsche. The video from EVO combines both of these characteristics and the product is a fifteen minute video review that perfectly describes how much of a treat this car is and what it is like to drive one, when the opportunity presents itself.
Like I said in the beginning, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is definitely worth a million words. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy these three videos featuring a car that has taken a special place in my dream car garage.
