Well, that would be the GT3 study that the Chinese car brand Zedriv presented at Auto Shanghai. Despite the fact that Porsche will soon release their all-electric Taycan and the Macan, they are clearly too slow off the mark with an electric version of their 911.
Zedriv is a new EV-brand from China that is owned by state-owned China National Machinery Industry Corporation, better known as Sinomach, which, in addition to e-mobility, is primarily dedicated to the construction of agricultural machinery. The company brought 3 production cars to the Shanghai Auto Show, the most interesting of which was the Zedriv GT3 concept car, which looks like a mix of an Alpine up front and a Porsche 911 at the back.
And by that, we mean it looks exactly like the 911 from the back: Narrow lamps in Porsche style protrude far into the flared fenders, a chrome bracket connects both lamps, the manufacturer’s name is emblazoned in the centre of the rear. A powerful diffuser rounds off the rear view. The roof also brings the Porsche 911 to mind.
Well, if the Germans are going to be so tardy about electrification, one has to give credit to the plethora of Chinese companies pumping out electric vehicles in a quantity unrivalled across the globe. But the Germans are going to have to catch up if they want to cater to the world’s largest electric car market. Whether the electric Porsche clone will ever go into production is still unclear.
