One of the most talked about electric cars in recent times is the Lotus Elise based Tesla Roadster, a car that is quickly become more and more popular in performance circles because of its supercar performance and cutting edge technology. Well-established Porsche tuner RUF, a company that has been building cars for more than 60 years, is now poised to launch its own Tesla rival in the form of an all-electric Porsche.

RUF plans to unveil an all-electric version of its Cayman 3400K model (pictured) as early as next month, although the company is yet to announce production schedules or estimated prices. According to Auto Motor und Sport, the car will come with a 204hp (150kW) electric motor with 480lb-ft (650Nm) of instantaneous torque. Power will come from an array of lithium-ion batteries, with charging capable from an ordinary household power outlet.

While this figure is less than the 248hp (185kW) found in the Tesla Roadster, RUF ensures its electric Porsche will be able to go from 0-100km/h in about four seconds and reach a top speed of 200km/h. Furthermore, the RUF will also have a range of between 250 and 300km.

The car on which it will be based, the 3400K Cayman, meanwhile, develops up to 400hp (294kW) at 7,000rpm and a maximum torque of 325lb-ft (440Nm) at 5,500rpm, and manages a slower acceleration time to 100km/h, coming in at 4.4 seconds, but reaches a higher top speed of 291km/h.
