    Super fast, performance cars and electric engines may or may not be a good idea for some. If everyone smiles at a TeslaPorsche 911 or drools at the blazing Formula 1 cars, a Porsche 911 that is all electric will definitely be a welcome sight. There is a loud buzz that the Wolfgang Durheimer of Porsche is giving clues that it will be producing the EV.

    Despite the hints, the group did not disclose any formal plans with regard to the production of the electric Porsche 911. While they are on the discussion table, RUF is already talking about the production of an EV derived from 911 Cabrio tagged as the Greenster.

    Durheimer recognizes the efforts of RUF but looks into the issues of the weight of the car, its performance, handling, and cargo room. The Porsche finesse in terms of the torque, traction, and instant response may still have to be tweaked.

    The Greenster in fact is a bit on the heavy side at 3,750lbs. The engine is quite powerful at 362 hp and can zoom to 100km/hr or 62mph in 5 seconds. Greenster’s top speed was recorded at 320 km/hr. Still, the numbers fall short of the Porsche 911 expectations.

    While RUF is thinking of Greenster sales by 2010, it is good to hear that a green car by Porsche is being considered by the Durheimer. It will be worth a toast if the electric Porsche 911 will meet the expectations of living up to its being a Porsche 911.
