Default 5 Hybrid Supercars of the Future

Gas-powered speedsters may dominate the track today, but the dawn of the hybrid supercar is fast approaching.

The next generation of supercars will be hybrids. There, it's out there in the open for everyone to see. Equipping a supercar with electric engines and batteries may sound like a bad idea, but it's actually not so bad. These extra electric engines are meant to increase total power and gas mileage, which is something any enthusiast can get behind.If you're interested in seeing what green machines will be tearing up tracks in the future, then continue reading on.

The Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid will have a 550hp 4.6-liter V8 engine paired with two electric engines pumping out an additional 230hp.Pricing is expected to be between $650,000 and $700,000, and the vehicle will make its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.




The Infiniti Emerg-e is powered by two electric motors with a lithium-ion battery pack, four inverters and a 3cyl gas engine.All that hybrid goodness equals a total range of 300 miles (hybrid) and 30 miles (electric). Total power is rated at 402hp, good for a 0 to 60 time in less than 4 seconds.

Acura has finally answered the pleas of its fans asking for a new NSX.The newest NSX will be a hybrid with a mid-mounted next-generation VTEC V6 with direct-injection paired with three electric motors. Oh, and it looks great in red.




For now, a hybrid Veyron is nothing more than a curiosity among Bugatti's engineers.Still, you've got to wonder if the French automaker has the stones to create the world's fastest production car, convertible and hybrid.

Ferrari's Enzo II supercar is expected to make use of some form of hybrid system, with early indications pointing to the KERS (Kinectic Energy Recovery System) used in previous Ferrari models.If Ferrari is putting a hybrid system into the Enzo II, you know it's here to stay.
