Oct 14 2008No Vroom Vroom?: An Electric Porsche
German Porsche modder RUF Automobile GmbH went and dropped a 204hp electric motor into a 911. It's powered by 96 lithium ion batteries, can hit 60 in less than 7 seconds, tops out at 160 , and has a 180-mile range. All in all, not too shabby. Who'd have thunk it -- an electric Porsche! What's next, electric golf carts? Ha, that'll be the day.
Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures, including a couple of the battery arrays.
