It's not uncommon for Jay Leno to drive absolutely every single car before many others do but getting to take a test drive with Ed Welburn, GM Vice President of Global Design is a bit of a treat. Jay got to take out the Stingray Convertible while out at Pebble Beach this past weekend. We imagine we'll get to see it on Jay Leno's Garage soon enough.

I can only imagine that Jay is out making offers on cars he'd like to have in his collection!
That's right, Jay Leno is spending his weekend hanging out in the pre-production Porsche 918 Spyder at Pebble Beach for this years 2013 Concours d’Elegance. Not a bad way to spend a weekend if you ask me. The Porsche 918 is a four-wheel-drive electric-hybrid hypercar that'll hit 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds, 0-125mph in just under eight seconds, and top out at 202mph. My guess is that it's only a matter of time before Jay has one of these in his own garage right next to his MP4-12C, Carrera GT, and Chevy Volt.
Jay Leno has more cars than the episodes of the Tonight Show he's hosted. The unique aspect of this amazing looking car isn't the fact it's powered by a gas turbine jet but the fact it was created by Leno along with General Motors. Once a static exhibit, the EcoJet is now a fully functioning car - one thing about Jay's Garage is that everything runs. Check out the video after the jump to see what Jay has to say about the EcoJet.
