Porsche 918 Hypercar

Say it ain’t so momma, say it ain’t so! This is the first reported fire of Porsche’s new 918 hypercar. And it is quite tragic, but, not completely unexpected. It’s almost like a rite of passage for supercars to go up in flames these days.

This one happened in Toronto, and was scooped by the guys at Jalopnik courtesy of a few friendly tipsters. It happened at an area gas station, which, thankfully enough, didn’t explode in the aftermath of the fire.


No word on exactly how this whole fire started, but by the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like this million dollar exotic will be able to be saved. For shame.
