Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid

If there is one thing that we learned for our practical driving test that we hope to never have to use, it is the emergency stop. This is not because it is a difficult manoeuvre – in fact, it is probably the easiest thing we have to learn for our driving test – it is due to what situation the emergency stop is needed in. The emergency stop is needed when you are on the brink of disaster; when you are set to crash into a car, lorry, bus or person.

Although it is not something we hope to use in the near future, it is a good idea to give yourself the best opportunity to perform a successful emergency stop. Below is a list of cars with the shortest sixty to zero stopping distances; cars which you will not feel the need to contact whocanfixmycar.com for brake repair quotes.

It may come as a surprise that an American built car made this list; largely due to the fact that the amount of plastic utilised by American car makers makes consumers believe they are not well made..
