Relatively speaking, the Porsche sucks. Way out matched. It's a tough choice between the other two but I went Ferrari.

Ferrari The Ferrari, despite the ridiculously stupid name, seems amazing.

for performance, Ferrari all the way. The McLaren is a beast too, but that Ferrari really does something for me.

design-wise though, I would go with the Porsche. It might be the underdog where performance is concerned, but damn, it's beautiful. I think in 20 years, when all three of these are considered legends, the Porsche will still look as good as it does today, while the other two will age less gracefully. You'll definitely be able to tell when the Fezza and the Mac were made. Not to say that they won't still look good, but they'l show their age more.

I had no idea the P1 was a hybird. There is a McLaren dealer near me so I have seen a few on the road. They don't sound like a hybrid, they sound like a normal whiny supercar. Ferrari looks the best though.

Its a shame they are all so darn ugly. I suppose hybrids need to look different. McLaren for me as I can't get over the stupid name of the Ferrari.

I picked the 918 because its the best looking..because the other stats are completely irrelevant to anything I'd ever need in a car.

Porsche for me. The benefits of open top driving outweigh any consideration I'd put on miniscule differences in peak performance that I'll get nowhere close to in real life.

I'm pretty sure both the P1 and LF are available in a spyder edition. The LF for sure... it's brand new... might not be out yet but I've seen photos.

The 918 might be outmatched on paper but pretty sure both Top Gear and Evo preferred it to the P1 in real world driving because it made 900hp accessible. In TG's 3-way comparison every reviewer liked the Ferrari most. And these are British mags placing the Mac last!

I don't care and would still take the McLaren. I currently drive a very loud car and would value electric-only running - which the Ferrari can't do. Yet the P1 is also the biggest animal in full power mode. Sure, I'll be in a tree after 5 or 6 corners. But what a way to go!
