Porsche Developing All-Electric Tesla Rival

September 25, 2008

Porsche’s de facto tuner company Ruf has announced that they will be using the Cayman platform to create a new, all-electric supercar.

With a projected top seed of 125mph and a power output of a little over 200hp and 480ft-lbs of torque, the Porsche should move out pretty well – maybe enough to give Tesla something to worry about.

While the HP is less than the Tesla, the torque number is considerably higher. Yet the Porsche will also weigh about 231 pounds more, so it will be interesting to see how these two stack up in comparison tests. [Source: Autoblog]
