Everyone is going for a slice of the eco pie these days but one manufacturer we thought would distance itself from environmental friendliness is Ruf, creator of mega-fast supercars. But even Alios Ruf has given in and is taking time out from making outrageously powerful Posrche-based cars to make an electric Porsche-based car.
The German tuner is reportedly working on an all-electric Cayman that would complete with the Tesla Roadster. It is expected to have a little less overall power than the Tesla (150kW compared to 185kW) but will have considerably more twisting force (650Nm versus 375Nm).
A lithium-ion battery pack of undisclosed output will provide power to the motor and the car has a projected top speed of 125mph. Rumour has it the Ruf could have multiple gears instead of just one and it could demand a higher price tag than the $100,000 asking price for a Tesla.
Of course the burning question is, how fast will it be?
