Hold On Sports Car Fans - Hybrid Sports Cars Are On The Way

Nov 28, 2007
When person thinks about hybrid sports cars are the person may be thinking oh yeah those cars the ones that are awesome on gas but are poor on performance. So with gas prices raising it is inevitable that sports car will come on to the line of the market.

The Japanese auto manufactures are continuing to spend time in trying to find a way to make a hybrid car and mix it with a sports car. Subaru Mitsubishi and others are trying to progress in making a hybrid sports car.

Most of the cars being made into hybrids are still being run on batteries which will not get into the performance area like others are looking for. Even though batteries and electric motors are a good way to counter act gas emissions there is some talk about them making an electric sports car that is capable of producing 470whp. If you ask me that is insane for an electric car to produce that kind of power and I don't believe it until its running down the track or I see the dyno sheet right in front of me.

So even though there are hybrids already on the market there are still many trying to make an electric hybrid sports car. A few years back Mazda saw that their rotary motor ran pretty well on a different fuel. Since that was discovered I am pretty sure that they have been messing around with making a rotary motor that is either a hybrid or an electric high performance motor.

The most well known hybrid of today is the Toyota Priapus, a gas/electric car that will be priced at over 70 grand. Even though it may still be running on a propane or type of hydrogen gas it will still be more fuel efficient over regular gases. Many experts think that the car will cost into the six figure range but will do awesome in auctions since many people with great deals of money are looking for the new and sleek versions of car even in the senior class. The Priapus will go 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds which is very good considering it will still get 30 mpg that is good if you are going to just be cruising around or traveling.

The Japanese makers are not the only makers that are looking into hybrid performance. Two of the former jaguar designers have made a good accomplishment they have designed a v10 that will be considered a hybrid.

With so many nations and countries demanding for better gas prices there needs to be an answer. That is why there are so many designers and makers trying to make a hybrid that will do such things.

People just want a car that gets good mpg and still will be able to be a high performance sports car. Today you won't find that anywhere but maybe in the future you wont be able to find a gas powered car. That is why makers today are trying to get started because they want people to buy their hybrid cars over gas high performance street cars.
