Porsche is getting into the hypercar game with its 918 sports car. Designed in the same vein as the LaFerrari and P1, the 918 brings its own technological advancements to the arena. At a staggering $845,000, here are six things you should know about the Porsche 918.

6. Massive Research Budget

First, let’s look at the price. At $845,000, one could easily assume Porsche would be making hand-over-fist in profits. In reality, they loose money with each car built. Why? The 918 has a massive research and development budget that will take years to make up for in profits. The hopes would be that this technology trickles down to their other models to help pay off the budget needed to even design the car.
