Facebook Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid – Click above for high-res image gallery

To commemorate its social media milestone of surpassing one million fans on Facebook (its fan page is currently at 1,502,860 members), Porsche has created this special edition of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid complete with the signatures of over 27,000 Porsche fans. The car makes its North American debut this week at the New York Auto Show before it goes on display inside the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.

Porsche's hybrid racer packs 480 horsepower from its 4.0-liter flat-six engine and is matched with two 80-hp electric motors. The German automaker recently tested the hybrid system's capability during the 2010 24 Hours of Nürburgring, and Porsche firmly believes that hybrid performance cars like this foreshadow the future of racing.

      I wish I could go 5 minutes without hearing some crap about Facebook.

      What on earth does "A 1,000,000 TIMES" mean? Is that how Porsche rates Facebook's standing on eBay?

        "To commemorate its social media milestone of surpassing one million fans on Facebook (its fan page is currently at 1,502,860 members), Porsche has created this special edition of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid complete with the signatures of over 27,000 Porsche fans." It's self-explanatory and has nothing to do with eBay. Maybe you should rent "The Social Network" and see what you can derive from that.

        "The jew?" What's that supposed to mean? I think you need to reconsider your word choice and stereotypes. Language like that has no place here.
