Porsche 918 Spyder Catches Fire In Toronto

Car fans are lamenting the likelihood that there will be only 917 out of 918 Porsche 918 Spyders remaining in the world after one appears to have been incinerated in Toronto over the weekend.

The $845,000-plus plug-in hybrid supercar was seen in flames at a gas station in Toronto. The cause has not been verified leaving speculators to discuss whether the fire may have originated at the car itself, or when sprayed gasoline touched something hot like the roof-mounted exhausts.

This 918 fire follows a lesser one in July of another elite hybrid, the LaFerrari, in a hill climb event in Italy. That car got away with singes, but this 918 appears to be a goner.
