Video: Watch DRIVE’s Chris Harris get some seat time in the Porsche 918 Spyder

Following the revealing of the production-ready 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, Drive’s own Chris Harris attended one of the launch events for the much-anticipated supercar. That of course means, he was able to get some driver seat time as well.

Harris is no stranger to driving some of the fastest cars the world, and even history, has ever seen. So you could expect to get a decent idea of what the Porsche 918 Spyder has to offer. And before even driving it, Harris is thoroughly impressed with Porsche’s claimed accomplishments with their latest supercar.

But in a bit of honesty, he did share that he wishes Porsche got rid of the whole hybrid idea by instead making a 2,420-pound coupe with the 918’s 608hp V8, rather than a 3,608-pound hybrid coupe complete with a total output of 887hp.

Check out Chris Harris’s take after the jump.
