Kreisel EVEX 910e
I’m really not excited about the entire world going full electric when it comes to cars, but even I have to admit this project is a cool idea. The Kreisel EVEX 910e was inspired by something that took the world by storm almost 50 years after with the Porsche 910 having competed at Le Mans.
Electromobility specialist Kreisel Electric, however, has completely converted a Porsche 910, which is now able to reach speeds of more than 300 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. Better yet, this Porsche is licensed for the use on public roads, but only a few will be privileged enough to enjoy it. The price for such exlcusivity? 1 million Euros.
The original Porsche 910 sports car featured a 2-litre flat-6-engine, and only 35 units were ever produced specifically to be used at the track. As such, the collector value of the original vehicles is enormous, and purists may consider this conversion a sacrilege. To enable the breathtaking acceleration and the maximum speed, Kreisel developed a 2-speed automated transmission, a self-locking differential and integrated, electric oil pump to ensure lubrication and cooling.
The high-performance (lithium-ion) battery pack, with a capacity of 53 kilowatt-hours, which installed in the Kreisel EVEX 910e weighs 1.100 kilograms and enables a realistic range of 350 kilometers – seems about right. The air-cooling of the historical vehicle has been replaced by a cooling system which Kreisel developed for the high-performance drive, to make sure everything works fine. What do you think about it?
