Yesterday, we gave you an idea of what it might be like to hustle a McLaren P1 around a racetrack. Never one to be outdone, Porsche has released a driver's point of view video from behind the wheel of the immensely capable 918 Spyder. The setting is a wide-open Circuit of the Americas outside Austin, Texas, and the driver is Porsche factory ace Patrick Long. That button he pushes at 0:39 to bring the 608-hp 4.6-liter to life? That's a good button. We learned as much recently when we also took a 918 to an Austin drag strip to see how it performed.
Let's hope this proxy battle of videos between these two supercars continues and—if we're lucky—even escalates.
