1. 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder
Nobody really knew what to expect from the Porsche 918 Spyder. It debuted later than the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari. Porsche let almost all of the relevant information out long before showing a production car to the media, leaving some to wonder if the German brand had its thunder stolen by firms in Britain and Italy.
But one little number lit a firestorm of enthusiasm around the car, even after it had seemingly gone stale in media coverage. That number is 6:57 and it’s the new Nurburgring lap time record. Guess which car owns it?
