Someone in Netherlands is making an Electric Version of the 911
Not so long ago, Emory Motorsports grabbed the attention of 911 enthusiasts from around the world with its Outlaw 911K. Now a Dutch company you have never heard of is making an electric version of the 911, the Quintessenza.
Voitures Extravert is the name of the company in question. It has been hard at the work and its hard work payed off when last year, at the reveal the Quintessenza, it got such a huge response that the Dutch company has decided of building 36 electric-powered 911s.
The Quintessenza is not a 60s 911, it is a 1980s one modified to look like its earlier counterpart. Voitures doesn't just put batteries under the hood of a car and call it electric-powered. Voitures completely strips the donor car and starts restoring from ground level zero. Each car will be getting an updated power steering system, modern air-conditioning and a redesigned suspension system.
Range is not a problem as Voitures claim it will go 250 miles without charging in between. The 58 kWh battery pack can be added with 60 miles of range in just 15 minutes with a fast charger.
Unconventional enginnering might not appeal to everyone but strategic placement of the battery pack in the Quintessenza Electric 911 means that it can handle corners with far more authority than the original. Attention to enhancing the experience of driving this makes the Quintessenza Electric 911 just a little more special.
The most noticeable change in the interior is the digital dashboard, having fully customizable binnacles. The rest of the interior retains much of the original's swithgear.
Performance is also a strong aspect of this car as a sub six-second 0-60mph time, top speed of 112mph coming from a 54kWh battery pack giving a power output of 222hp and a massive 664 lb-ft of torque is very impressive.
Voitures offers ‘80s-look TE models and 60's styled SE models in all original paint. Both models start at $270,000 before taxes (including a donor car) with a reserved refund deposit of $5600.
