Porsche 911: Electric version in the works?

Porsche 911
Porsche has dropped some hints about an electric Porsche 911.

Durheimer says that while RUF’s creation is a masterpiece, it doesn’t have to deal with the production-vehicle realities of ample cargo room and light weight that a Porsche-built 911 EV would require.

He has a strong point – though impressive, the RUF Greenster weighs in at a hefty 3,750lb (1695kg) and produces 362hp (270kW) – enough to shuffle to 62mph (100km/h) in just five seconds, but hardly Porsche 911-territory.

Nevertheless, the fact that Durheimer has paid so much attention to the RUF project and is willing to discuss it hints at the possibility of an electric future at Porsche.
