As one of the greatest sports car manufacturers of all time, when Porsche puts out a new, ultra-exclusive hypercar, enthusiasts tend to stand up and take note. Jay Leno is no exception, and now, the funnyman is finally getting his time with awesome 918 Spyder.

With his 1963 Porsche 356 and his 2005 Carrera GT flanking a Liquid Silver 918, Leno takes us through the basics of this plug-in hybrid roadster alongside Daniel Eastman of Porsche North America. Following the chat, Leno and Eastman take the German-plated car through the streets of California, testing it in a number of modes and even going on a short, all-electric freeway cruise.

If you're looking to learn more about the 918, or to just hear its glorious gas engine at work, you'll want to scroll down and take a look at the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage.

      amazing car and with its by far bigger electric range the only true hybrid among those new supercars. this car indeed marks the future while being outrageously fast. also you get all the modern DD creature comforts like ac, touchpad and even a burmester stereo. and on top the joy of a targafeeling, what more can you ask for?!

      I can't wait to experience this tech when it makes its way to the Boxster or Cayman. Hurry Porsche!

      I've never seen it in white before. That car is so gorgeous.

      Say what you want, I'd take this over any P1 LaFerrari anyday. What a glorious machine!

      Have to agree with Lachmund. I'm sure the P1 and LaFerrari will battle it out for top honors in performance and hard numbers. But for everyday useability, practical design, flowing lines, and a hot sculpted body, the 918 is the sexiest and most appealing to me.

      How did he fit his chin into that little car?

      $1 million is simply too much. This happens to all Porsche supercars: hot versions of 911 is simply too good and too fast to justify the apparent price gap, especially when you consider the fact that the next generation hot 911 will be as fast, if not faster than, the last supercars.

      What's the big deal with plugin the car? It is far better to plug in at home than to use a filthy public gas station.

      In my flawed, biased opinion this is the greatest car of our time, a technological tour de force like no other.

      This car is the sign of things to come. Fast hybrids, I guess GM is working on a hybrid Corvette. That's what the ZR1 Needs to Be.
