With a rolling start and slicks it with be under 7:00. Fuel consumption of the lap should also be included for today's world.

It was from a standing start and on street tyres. i think that is worth 10 seconds

the ferrari f150 will do it in around 7minutes dead! Considering that it is a dissapointment! ...and I bet these electro powered batteries won't last for more than a lap! ...so after the first lap the 7.14 will become 7.20 at least! with 600bhp ...so sorry porsche, I would rather have a second hand carrera gt, which with semi slick tyres and upgraded KW coillovers will do around 7.14 every time!!!

It will get better !  9y ago

I think that when the definitive, fine-tuned version of the 918 lands on this Earth... the true laptimes will be better still :)

In addition to my sentence:
I've read that electric motors add additional [useless] 315 kg, and the total price of car claimed to be damned 768.026 Euro, or approx $960k. And I'm pretty sure that the hybrid systems takes complete 10% of it, if not more...

"The Porsche 918 should be a kind of succesor for the old Group C cars etc."

Yeah, would be pretty cool. I'm missing it... missing old good motorsport, omologation street-legal racecars... Where is the romantic of past years?...

@CoolShirtGuy
thank you you said all that i thought =)

The Porsche 918 should be a kind of succesor for the old Group C cars etc.

In fact:
The motorsport of 1980s is long gone and the spirit never get back.
To Stefan Bellof, Derek Bell, Jochen Mass,Jacky Ickx.
These are the names of the driver who were able to drive these BEASTS around the ring.

What i wanna say is , that the 918 is not able to carry this heritage.
R.I.P the real motorsport !

@CoolShirtGuy
Indeed.

But I almost guarantee that without electric motors 918 shall become a real monster with past feelings of desire - that would be a great successor of the Carrera GT.

@Ferrari driver
The Carrera GT was a true driver's car; something that required talent and common sense to explore its limits. It was a wild and hairy ride that didn't coddle you and make you feel safe. It was a car that demanded respect, and when you screwed up it would let you know in the most pants-wettingly terrifying way possible(like going sideways at 150+mph). And everyone loved it for that. While it was just as advanced as a Ferrari Enzo(perhaps even moreso in some ways), it was more like an F40 in the way it drove and the way it had to be driven. A truly modern throwback to the days when you had to have cast iron balls to really go all out.

Nowadays, cars are just too safe and easy. Smart to the point that the driver can be an idiot and still run decent times. There's no character or personality; cars today are "yes-men" that just take whatever you throw at them without complaint. You say "go", and they say "how fast?".

To get that same visceral thrill from those days, you'd have to go for a Viper, Corvette or one of Porsche's GTRS models(the GT2RS could be called something of a spiritual successor to the CGT, while the 918 is a conceptual successor).

@BR2'
I like the Carrera GT more than the 918 because it looks a way better.
The Carrera GT also has a special character, which the 918 does not have anymore.

I think the new Enzo will have the same problem.
Maybe the new F1 ,too.

..A Carrera GT is simply better...because it has a V10?....Okkkk...

And why will the 918 be better then any car today?

@Makaveli
FYI, 918 used only 562 hp from the V8, and the car is approx 100 kg heavier than Viper, so the difference in only 2 sec makes Porsche respectable. And the 918's body is just a masterpiece. Without that fking electric motors the car would become just ideal! So, your expression is a bullshit.
