The 5 Most Spectacular Supercars And Concept Cars
The Rimac C Two
Porsche has just purchased 10 percent of Rimac, maker of the C Two hypercar.
In just eight short years, Mate Rimac has gone from working on electric power trains at his home garage in Zagreb, Croatia, to creating some of the world’s fastest, most technically advanced hypercars. The sensational C Two electric two-seater he unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March boasts more than 1,900 hp, a top speed of 256 mph, and the ability to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds.
Porsche plans to tap into Rimac’s fast-developing technical expertise, announcing that it has just purchased a 10-percent stake in Rimac Automobili. No financial terms have been revealed, or details on how the partnership will work, but Porsche—the technology leader in the Volkswagen Group—is keen to become a major force in electrification. Next year sees the launch of its highly anticipated Taycan all-electric sedan that will go head-to-head with Tesla’s Model S.
