Emblématique véhicule de course, like as Porsche 935, équipé d’un flat-6 de 3.0L, a permuté et a été pré’paré’ par le spécialiste Bisimoto Enginnering, en Californie. Cette build 935 K3V a été entièrement remonté, retrofit, en utilisant un système ingénieux de propulsion électrique équivalent à 635 ch., 475 kW, avec 32 kWh de puissance de batterie. Toute cette technologie est ‘wrapped’ dans une livrée thème ‘Gozzy Kremer Racing’ gris foncé et rose fluo, inspirée des années 1980, sur une base de Porsche 911 de route, in fact, et modélisé, customisé et préparé telle une 935 de course pour la route. Découverte.

Ezerioha is involved in import drag racing, and pilots a 2006 Honda Insight in the pro stock ranks of IDRA (Import Drag Racing Association), IDRC (Import Drag Racing Circuit).

‘Among just the Porsche builds, there’s been a 911 with a Hyundai V6 engine swap, a 500-horsepower Boxster with a central seating position, and Bisi’s personal “Blue Bomber” 1976 911 Carrera with a twin-turbo 3.4-liter flat-six from a 996-series putting out 820 horsepower at the wheels.


The latest build ‘Bisimoto Porsche 935 K3V’ crowns the list. Set on a classic Carrera, it has a Kremer 935 K3 body kit made in the original molds. Kremer, for any who don’t know, was a German company that built customer versions of the Porsche 935 ‘Moby Dick’ racer starting in the mid-1970s, and a Kemer K3 won Le Mans outright in 1979.’

‘Power comes from 12 LG Chem cells, six in front and six in back, with a combined 32-kWh capacity. Even though the 935 K3V weighs a mere 1216 kg.’

‘EV is exciting,’

‘It shouldn’t be looked upon as just a tool for the daily commute. It should be accessible to all people, especially automotive fans. These multimillion-dollar EV hypercars boasting 2000hp might pull headlines, but they don’t capture you on an emotional level.’

‘The last point I’ll make on the weight is, battery tech is rapidly improving right now. This is where the most advantage will come from in the future. As the capacity and range improves in the batteries, so does the car.’

‘Right now we have a 260-mile (418km) range. But we can mount the batteries wherever we like.’

‘This 935 K3V doesn’t have to have the weight of a rear-engined car; we can distribute the weight to mimic any driving characteristics. And that’s super exciting.’

Bisi, CEO Bisimoto

‘You cannot look at this as a binary function; it doesn’t have to be on or off even if some EV cars feel that way. The speed controller I have developed allows me to dictate how much torque is deployed at any given speed or RPM.’

Think of it in the same way that you map a traditional engine. If you want a smoother power curve with more punch at the top end, you can do that.’

La base est en fait une Porsche 911 de 1986, mais la carrosserie a été reproduite à l’aide de moules d’origine 935 K3 pour être aussi proche que possible de l’original sans en augmenter le poids.

‘The livery in Slate Gray and liquid pink was drawn up by Andy Blackmore Designs, channeling the Gozzy Racing Porsches of the 1980s. The 935 K3V has working headlights and taillights, the front lenses accentuated with crescent-shaped LED (Light-Emitting Diode) DRLs (Daytime Running Light). The charge port sits under what looks like the fuel filler cap front and center of the hood.’

Le tableau de bord est l’élément d’origine de 1986 – bien qu’il soit maintenant équipé d’un afficheur/enregistreur numérique AEM CD5 – et le volant MOMO Prototipo et d’un « levier de vitesse » Quaife shifter, qui a été adapté de telle sorte que le fait de le pousser vers l’avant enclenche l’entraînement, et le fait de le tirer vers l’arrière enclenche la marche arrière.

‘Inside, a full roll cage and a shifter set in a machined housing deliver the racy vibes of the original 935. An display shows a simplified set of gauges, or a full-screen readout of everything happening in the powertrain.’

‘Brixton Forged BM01. Summed up, this is an 8-piece wheel consisting of 3D printed sections, covers, custom milled center lock race caps, and an accenting aero rings. Together, this project allowed our team to push the limits of traditional wheel design, create something truly unique, and test the boundaries of our production capabilities.’

‘It’s a mismatch of past and present tech but it works. Take the Brixton Forged wheels. They look like a nod to the turbofans fitted to classic Porsche race cars, but the covers aren’t carbon or fiberglass. They’re 3D printed.’

‘You have to remember that, when you remove all the standard drivetrain and cooling from a car, there really isn’t that much heavy stuff left.’

‘In a sportscar, that effect is amplified. It’s very common to remove driver aids, air conditioning and audio in the quest for a pure driver’s car. You apply that same method to an EV-powered one and the end result is surprisingly similar.’

Bisi, CEO Bisimoto
