Ruf, as one of the oldest and finest Porsche tuners, has taken a new path in modifying different models of this car maker since 2008 by introducing the eRUF brand. What they do here is simple, they turn these sports cars into Electric Vehicles! Not a miserable one of course, a sports EV. Their first product, the 911-based Greenster was quite good, and now they are unveiling the Stormster, which is based on the Cayenne SUV.
Like the Greenster, the Stormster is also powered by Siemens electric motor and lithium ion accumulators supplied by Li-Tec Battery GmbH. This powertrain generates 270 kW (367 bhp), which is impressive, but given the 2,670 kg weight of the car, it is not what you call a performer!
Reaching 100 km/h from standing still takes 10 seconds in the Stormster, while it has a top speed of only 150 km/h. Fully charged, this electric Cayenne can cover a distance of about 200 Km.
Ruf maintains the car’s AWD system and fits the car with lightweight RUF classic 5 spoke wheels wrapped in Hankook winter tires size 295/30 R 22.
Since it’s an Eco car, they are not going to unveil it in a tuning show or something, instead the Stormster is having its first public debut during the European Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark!
