German tuners RUF are currently working their little nut sacs off developing an electric version of the Porsche Cayman! It will most likely compete head on against the Tesla Roadster and will be unveiled sometime in October 2008.

German tuners RUF Automobile GmbH is a producer of high-performance vehicles. They specialize in manufacturing new RUF spec automobiles using bare Porsche chassis. If you need a brief introduction to the RUF lineup of Porsche checkout the VIDEO BELOW!

The new Electric Porsche will feature a 150 Kilowatt electric motor which will produce 201 horses (48 less than the Tesla Roadster) and 479 ft-lb of torque. Its powerful (and still dangerous) lithium-ion battery pack should be good for 150-200 miles and have a top speed in the neighborhood of 125mph.
