Porsche 918 Snow Drifting Looks Like Good Fun!

Our colleagues from GTspirit recently got to spend some time with the Porsche 918 Spyder in Finland, where the German company hosted a winter driving experience program. Taking advantage of this opportunity, they decided to have a bit of fun with the million dollar hyper car by having a spot of snow drifting.

The Porsche 918 sent to Finland for this program was outfitted with spiked winter tires. But even so, we are staggered to see a hybrid hypercar, which is supposed to be extremely fragile, handling snow and ice like nobody’s business. We reckon a Ferrari LaFerrari would be stumped in a situation like this.
