Ruf creates EV Porsche Cayenne Stormster

eRuf Stormster fq

Just over a year ago, Porsche tuning specialists Ruf unveiled their first electric car, the 911-based eRuf. That first vehicle was far from ready for production, but the crew at Ruf have a reputation for determination. A few months after the eRuf was shown to the world, the second iteration with more power and lighter batteries appeared at the Geneva Motor Show. Ruf has said it plans to build that car in limited numbers in the future.

For now, the latest eRuf variant is the Stormster, a plug-in electric Cayenne, and unlike the 911-based car finding room for the cells isn’t a big issue. The Stormster uses a 270 kW Siemens motor along with Li-Tec lithium ion batteries. It’s unclear how many example Ruf plans to build, or how much it will cost or where the target markets are. But it will start production late in 2010 and the range is aproximately 120 miles per charge. It will be available in the standard Cayenne body or the special wide-body that Ruf already produces.

It’s a menacing looking machine, check out some pics in the gallery below.
