Of the racing Porsche 935 made a 636-horsepower electric carDecember 24, 2019
The well-known tuning studio Bisimoto decided to greatly modernize the iconic Porsche 935 racing coupe – instead of a powerful inline gasoline “six,” the car boasts a no less efficient electric motor.
Porsche 935 is one of the most famous racing cars of the German brand – of the main features of the car I note a powerful turbocharged engine, as well as a body thought out from an aerodynamic point of view. In order to pay tribute to this legend, the specialists of the Bisimoto studio chose the Porsche 935 for their new project.
They decided to replace the standard internal combustion engine with an electric motor with a capacity of 637 horsepower.
Although at first glance this may sound like blasphemy, in relation to this car, which has won many races, the result of such a replacement is very impressive, and at the same time, the resulting car can quite move on public roads.
Bisimoto also paints the electric car in several bright colors – the upper part of the car got a bright pink tint. White stripes separate the latter from the dark gray. Atelier Brixton Forged has developed a special set of wheels for this car, and the wheels themselves are painted in body colors.
Where you expect to see a powerful six-cylinder in-line twin-turbo engine, there is now a much more compact electric motor that is connected to LG Chem batteries.
Atelier Bisimoto pays great attention to the fact that changing the type of engine does not affect the habits of the driver. Switching between driving and reversing is as easy as holding the brake and moving the gear selector forward or backward, respectively. The virtual dashboard screen shows everything you need to know about the electric motor.
