Electrogenic delivers first customer ‘plug and play’ 911
The first EV-converted Porsche 911 to use Electrogenic’s ‘plug and play’ electrification kit has been delivered to its new owner.
Using Electrogenic’s drop-in EV conversion, the car comes with a 160kW water-cooled motor that delivers 215bhp and 230lb ft of torque. It drives the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission, giving 0-60mph in less than five seconds.
The conversion is based on a 1985 G-series 911 and is fitted with a backdated kit to give it the look of a 1973 2.7 RS.
Included in the kit are modern EV features such as Eco, Sport, and Traffic driving modes, as well as regenerative braking. The car has a driving range of up to 200 miles and recharging can be completed in as little as 50 minutes using a rapid charger.
Inside, the car has repurposed instruments to give vital information about battery charge and range, and there is an electric cabin heater.
Steve Drummond, co-founder of Electrogenic, said: ‘The delivery of this special 911 marks the start of an exciting new chapter for Electrogenic. The kits enable us to offer our market-leading, ‘plug and play’ EV technology to customers around the globe, and at scale, taking our business to a whole new level.
