McLaren P1 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder at Laguna Seca

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen the McLaren P1 reviewed alongside the shy Ferrari LaFerrari. Here’s a more definitive comparison of the best hybrid supercars, but this time it’s between the P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder. The goal? Fastest lap at the Laguna Seca. Motor Trend actually had a willing LaFerrari owner onboard, but Ferrari refused to assist with the test. Make of that what you will.

In the interest of fairness, Motor Trend invited the same driver to race both cars – GT ace Randy Pobst. So who do you think won? The more composed 918 Spyder or the lighter and more powerful P1? The Porsche’s lap is at 8:35 while the McLaren’s is at 16:40.
