At this point, you'd think we'd know all there is to know about the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder – except what it's like to drive – but Porsche has released a new video giving us a more in-depth look at its new plug-in hypercar all the same. The animated video gives us numerous cutaway looks at the 918 Spyder while giving a visual demonstration of the car's four hybrid driving modes.

Though nowhere near as exciting as watching the 918 blast around the Nürburgring in record time, this new video is nonetheless both interesting and informative. Scroll down to watch the video yourself, and be sure to check out our live gallery of the production version of the car along with a stock gallery.

      Without a doubt this car is the most sophisticated expression of the highest levels of technology in a supercar. It's not all about power, 0-60 and the usual figures cited but the integration of the components to each other and the car as a whole. And then you must consider that the 918 is the best looking of the current hybrid supercars, IMO, since the showcar was so much finer in every little detail than either the concept or production versions of La Ferrari, McLaren P1. I don't mean to dis the competition but they are not really trying to be the best all-around hybrids the way the 918 is meant to. Heritage means more to Ferrari and raw numbers to McLaren. Porsche in this instance are simply ;-) trying to make the most sophisticated vehicle ever, that just happens to be close to being the fastest thing around. I want one! :-\ my inner 4 year old....

      How can one argue with the virtues declared in this video?

      As these car makers put increasingly ridiculous amounts of horsepower in the cars in a desperate attempt to stay relevant at the top, it seems to me that their only course for credibility is to apply the power for flight.

      The lighest V8 they've ever made.. convenient definition since they basically never use V8 engines and the car is actually their heaviest sportscar ever. Dishonest as always.
