Ok, that is very bad. A brand new Porsche 918 hybrid plug-in on fire in a Gas Station of Toronto. I think it's the first plug-in in this treat.

Since it's a hybrid, some news outlet use this to spin FUD on that hybrid thing. You know, these dangerous batteries.
I read a few people speculating that the top mounted exhaust might have something to do with it. If it had been run fairly hard before fueling, the exhaust could be very hot. I think the autoignition temprature of gasoline is only around 300C, which is relatively low.
Either way, I cannot wait to only have to drive by gas stations.
