    KREISEL PRESENTS ELECTRIC SUPER SPORTS CAR KREISEL EVEX 910E

    Almost 50 years after this vehicle type participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the electromobility specialist Kreisel Electric has completely converted a Porsche 910, turning it into an electrified supercar. The Kreisel EVEX 910e handles speeds above 300 kilometres per hour, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and – in contrast to the historical original by Porsche – is licensed for the use on public roads. In cooperation with the EVEX Fahrzeugbau GmbH this vehicle is available as a limited edition. The price for the first purchasable electric car by Kreisel: one million Euros.

    With the Porsche 910 sports car fitted with a 2-litre flat-6-engine, the two German race drivers Rolf Stommelen and Jochen Neerpasch achieved the sixth place in the overall ranking at the World Sportscar Championship 1967 in Le Mans. The vehicle was produced only 35 times and utilized exclusively for circuit races and hill climbs. Nevertheless – or exactly for this reason – the collector value of the original vehicles is enormous. The vehicle manufacturer EVEX started to rebuild this type of vehicle in the 1970s – as EVEX Porsche 910. After just four classic supercars had been manufactured the production was discontinued – up to the present day.

    Kreisel and EVEX started working on the conversion of the vehicle last year in August. To enable the breathtaking acceleration and the maximum speed, Kreisel developed a 2-speed automated transmission with a gear transmission ratio of 8.16 (in 1st gear) and 4.67 (in 2nd gear), as well as self-locking differential and integrated, electric oil pump to ensure lubrication and cooling. The Austrians also offer the transmission as a standalone product.

    The high-performance (lithium-ion) battery pack, with a capacity of 53 kilowatt-hours, which is installed in the Kreisel EVEX 910e, weights 1.100 kilograms and enables a realistic range of 350 kilometres. To accommodate the battery system as well as the powertrain in the rear, the frame of the original vehicle was slightly modified. Besides that the air-cooling of the historical vehicle was replaced by a cooling system which Kreisel developed for the high-performance drive.

    The battery can be charged rapidly with up to 100 kilowatts DC and even enables an intelligent energy management in combination with a photovoltaic installation, for instance on a single-family house: by means of bi-directional charging the sports car can even be used as a home storage and temporarily stores regenerative energy to dispense it back to the house, if required.

    Characteristics of the Kreisel EVEX 910e:
    ▪ removable Targa roof
    ▪ max. performance: 490 hp / 360 kW
    ▪ max. torque: 770 Nm
    ▪ 1.100 kg overall weight (with 340 kg battery, transmission & 2 motors 165 kg)
    ▪ from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 sec.
    ▪ top speed > 300 km/h
    ▪ weight distribution: 37% / 63%
    ▪ battery system with 53 kWh
    o lithium-ion technology
    o liquid cooling
    o rapid DC-charging with up to 100 kW
    o realistic range of 350 km on the road
    o can be utilized as energy storage as part of the home energy management system
    ▪ automated 2-speed transmission newly developed to enable an enormous acceleration and high speeds:
    o transmission ratio 1st gear: 8.16 / transmission ratio 2nd gear: 4.67
    o self-locking differential
    o integrated, electric oil pump for lubrication and cooling

    So I'm slightly confused by this. Are they now converting the four continuation chassis from the 70's or are have they just started building new chassis again? Either way, 1 million Euros seems crazy overpriced for a non-original chassis but I am glad they're not soiling the history of the originals

    They may be using one of their four continuation cars, one of these was also at the Techno Classica, together with a fully original 910,fitted with a flat eight. I guess if the demand is there they will be making new chassis again.
