The hybrid race concept Porsche 918 RSR was just unveiled in Cobo Hall and we have the first live photos of the car for you, fresh from the Porsche stand. It looks even better in real life than it does in the official studio shots, but then, it should.

It should also go like a scalded, bionic cat. Combining the supercar-worthy hybrid system of the 918 Spyder concept with the KERS-derived flywheel hybrid system of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid, the 918 RSR is the best of pretty much every possible world.

Ogle it now, and read up on some more later. More to come from the Detroit Auto Show, so stay tuned.
