“We are a sports car manufacturer and that means its about driving fast – but at the same time about cutting pollution and conserving natural resources,” Porsche chief said according to the website of news magazine Der Spiegel.
Critically, the Spyder emits an average of just 70 grammes of carbon dioxide, the firm claims. According to Britain’s Department for Transport, the third-generation Prius – the best-known hybrid car – emits 89 g/km.
Many conventional supercars, including models made by Ferrari and Lamborghini, emit between 400g and 500g of carbon per kilometre.
