E-Ruf Electric Porsche 911 Impressive, But Overweight
Looks like the all-electric Porsche that German tuning haus Ruf is building is the real deal, and the early indication from someone who's spent some time behind the wheel is the E-Ruf will reach frightening velocity, but takes its sweet time getting there.
Although the battery-powered Porsche 997 (aka the 911) concept car is drop-dead gorgeous and certainly looks quick, its 204-horsepower motor isn't any more powerful than the one BMW is putting under the hood of the forthcoming electric Mini. But what it lacks in horspoewer, it more than makes up for in torque, cranking out more of it than a Corvette Z06. Head speedmeister Alois Ruf hopes the E-Ruf will hit 160 mph, and he's shooting for a 0 to 60 time under 7 seconds.
Seven seconds? In a Porsche?
