My favorite automaker, Porsche (soon to merge with it’s cousin and my second-favorite automaker, Volkswagen), is rumored to be working on an all-electric version of it’s iconic 911. Another German company, eRuf has already converted a new 911 to all-electric power and hopes to begin selling them this fall. Porsche was reportedly not happy about that and purchased a Tesla Roadster in order to study it. I guess whatever it is that eRuf did, it was similar to a Tesla. Either way, I’m psyched. Someday I hope to afford a 911 (I might have to settle for a mid-1980s model which I can get for less than a small fortune) and it would be great to be able to get an electric version.
