Don't worry - these are replicas of the 910. This Austrian company isn't slicing up rare Porsche race cars.

After letting Arnold Schwarzenegger test drive its electric Mercedes-Benz G-Class in January, Kreisel Electric from Austria is now turning its attention to modifying the classic Porsche 910 into a road-legal EV sports car. The 910e model name appropriately conveys the combination of vintage design and next-gen power in quite a compelling package. However, the price is an eye-watering one million euros (approx. $1.4M CAD)

Kreisel installs an electric drivetrain that combines a 53 kilowatt-hour battery and a motor making 483 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. A two-speed automatic gearbox routes power to the wheels. The firm claims the 1,100-kilogram (2,425-pound) 910e can reach 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour) in 2.5 seconds and hit a top speed over 300 km/h (186 mph). The setup offers a max range of 350 kilometres (218 miles).

Don’t worry about Kreisel cutting up authentic 910s. Instead, the company Evex Fahrzeugbau is building the bodies that mimic the vintage racer. They look quite authentic but installation of the electric powertrain requires slight medication to the frame.

Porsche only built 35 original examples of the 910 in the late 1960's. They were quite successful racers, including a victory in the 1967 Nürburgring 1000-kilometres.

The 910e is at Techno Classica in Essen, Germany, alongside one of Evex’s standard 910 replica. Kreisel and Evex intend to build a limited run of these EVs, but the companies aren’t revealing exactly how many that they intend to make.

More Porsche news:

Kreisel’s electric G-Class prototype was similarly impressive with a total output of 483 hp from two electric motors. It allegedly hit 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds, too. An 80 kWh battery gave the SUV a 300 km (186-mile) range. Schwarzenegger will also have the pleasure of evaluating the test mule on the roads around Los Angeles sometime soon.
