German Porsche tuner Ruf is building an electric Porsche 911 with the intent of offering a small number of production versions starting in 2010. The multi-continent effort began with Ruf’s prototype, which was built by CalMotors, a U.S.-based design and engineering firm.
The Ruf’s lithium-ion battery pack is supplied by Axeon, a firm in Dundee, Scotland. The electric Ruf Porsche makes 210 hp and is expected to accelerate to 60 mph in under seven seconds, top out at 140 mph, and travel 150 miles on a single charge. No word on price, but starting with a 911 on the way to building an electric car should make it a plaything for the very wealthy.
