The Austrian company is probably most famous for turning a Mercedes-Benz G-Class into an electric off-roader for the Terminator – Arnold Schwarzenegger.
But now Kreisel Electric is starting to work on a completely different project – turning the classic Porsche 910 into a road-legal EV sports car. The 910e has been chosen as the model name, and don’t worry, they’re not chopping up the classic car – this is a replica. And the package is quite compelling – vintage styling and next generation powertrain – up until you see the price, which stands at one million euros ($1.07 million). For the money Kreisel uses an electric drivetrain that combines a 53 kilowatt-hour battery and a motor good for 483 horsepower (360 kilowatt) and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque.
There’s a two-speed automatic gearbox and the company says the 2,425-pound (1,100-kilogram) 910e will sprint to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.5 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 186 mph (300 kph). More so, the range is comprehensive for the small battery pack – 218 miles (350 kilometers). Taking care of the replica bodies is Evex Fahrzeugbau, which modifies the vintage racer to fit in the electric powertrain. Both the 910e and Evex’s standard 910 replica can be seen by the worldwide audience of the Techno Classica event taking place in Essen, Germany.
