Though I cannot be in attendance of the Detroit Auto Show, thanks to the wonders of the world wide web I bring you  the Detroit reveal of the Porsche 918 RSR (via the Porsche Channel).

While we were treated to the incredible looking 918 Hybrid concept in Paris, this RSR is the one that will put to the test on the racetrack. Now that we’ve seen it in Detroit, when can we expect to see it on the ‘ring, Porsche? Combining the kinetic energy regenerative braking technology of the GT3 Hybrid race car with a mid-engine V8 and a paint scheme that subtly resembles Gulf livery 917s, this is one Hybrid that I can safely say I am ravenously Hungry4. Below is one more video of the RSR from Porsche, albeit a rendered version. Porsche has proven thus that you no longer have to be a hippie in order to crave a hybrid.
