The i8 only has a range of 20 miles, which is a joke and doubt the performance will be anything to write home about.
The i8's performance so far is on a par with the current M3 (E92).
It can probably go faster if needed.
The Active Aerodynamics also play a huge part.

Shouldn't it at least be on par with next M3 (F80)?

Currently.
We still have over a year to develop how far we can go. Performance wise.
For a car such as the i8 it will significant.

Yes, Im aware of that. We will see though. Again, the Tesla got man handled by a little ole boxtser S and I dont see the i8 doing much better. Plus by that time, the 911 Hybrid should be out, which will undoubtedly be the benchmark for hybrid performance seeing as Porsche's hybrid tech is clearly well ahead of every other car maker in the world.
