Elec­tric 911

New Zealand Classic Car - - Local And International News -

Dutch com­pany Voi­tures Ex­travert is def­i­nitely rais­ing a few eye­brows by tak­ing old Porsche 911s and con­vert­ing them into elec­tric cars.

The com­pany’s Quintessenza project takes a 1970s or 1980s Porsche 911 and re­places the con­ven­tional en­gine with a mod­ern elec­tric power train un­der­neath. The 60kw/h bat­tery pack pro­vides a range of 400km (roughly 250 miles) and can pro­pel the 911 from zero to 62mph in 6.0 sec­onds.

At €300K ( NZ $ 507K), these elec­tric 911s are “rea­son­ably priced”, ac­cord­ing to Voi­tures Ex­travert, with the sourc­ing of the donor car, parts, and pro­duc­tion all in­cluded in the fee.
