I had some other fucking stupid ass blog post written up but decided to delete it and post this. Just in case you were unaware:
The fact that I am so incredibly rich must be well known in wealthy circles as I received a very important delivery the other day.
And that’s not all. Did you see who it was from?
Apparently, word has gotten around that I have paid off my commoner’s vehicle and am now in the market for something more befitting my station in life. So they posed a serious query:
Now, I am sure the average layperson like yourself knows nothing about the Porsche 918 Spyder. It’s okay, I don’t know anything about whatever it is you people do, either. Here is a basic rundown:
The lithium-ion battery powered vehicle packs a punch, with the ability to go 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph. According to Porsche, it also features a “high revving 500-plus horsepower V8 engine assisted by two electric motors with a total of at least 218 horsepower” inspired by the Porsche RS Spyder racing engine. And like any good hybrid, it has an impressive fuel economy: 78 miles per gallon, 16 miles on pure electric charge at up to 94 mph. That kind of power doesn’t come cheap. The Spyder will retail for $845,000 when it goes on sale in 2013–and only 918 customers will have the opportunity to buy it.
