Broken link... Here is the correct one:
http://www.autoblog.com/2013/08/18/porsche-918-spyder-pre-production-version-in-all-its-almost-done/

While the car is quite nice, it is only for those with money to burn and nothing else good to do with it.

Wonder how long before I can get a used one for $12,000? I'm not cheap, I'm frugal :-)

If I'm going to have to pay $4-5 per gallon, I'd rather do it in style. But for now, I have to stay with my Civic :)
