Electric Porsches: Eco-Friendly Rock Star Mobiles

Eco-friendly rock star mobiles.

I always wanted a Porsche.

They’re sexy, sleek and most importantly small. I’m not a large lady, so these exotic cars always held a natural appeal in my eyes. The downside, until now, had been the tremendous gas guzzling engines and high price tag…

Oh, yes, I did say: until now.

Recently, I had the opportunity to work on a modeling shoot for the man who owns an international company selling these eco-friendly rock star mobiles.

They’re sleek, sexy, green and even somewhat affordable.

When I was modeling for this company, I got to ask a lot of questions and more importantly, I got to actually drive one. Using no gasoline, these cars run entirely on electric engines. The company rebuilds several styles of exotic cars including Rolls Royces, Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentleys and other styles, but prefers to work with Porsche because of its dependability and proven track record. Porsche has won more racing competitions globally then any other car and has a reputation for quality. These cars are sustainable, dependable and now—eco friendly.

The stats:

Uses no gas, runs on electric engine, can drive 300 miles before needing to be recharged. To recharge, you simply plug it in for 45 minutes and you’re on the road again!

These Porsche’s can go ‘0’ to ’60’ in 5 seconds flat—so they have speed and as Julia Roberts said in Pretty Woman “These cars corner like they’re on rails”. That I got to experience first hand while entering and exiting the ramps on and off I-95 during my test drive.

Best of all: they can install the engine into any car you want, or you can select one of theirs. The price is affordable and it feels sexy to drive. The gauges are fun and interesting, since there is no need to check the gas or engine heat, etc, the gauges focus on other points of interest like: how much charge is left in the battery and how fast you are driving.

You can start in 2nd or 3rd gear even, since they eliminate the clutch in the stick shift- so when you start these cars, it feels and sounds like you’re starting a golf cart—silent and calm.

This is the future of transportation. And you better believe as soon as I have the dough, this will be my car of choice.

So, my question for you:

Would you drive one of these? If so, what price would you be willing to pay for such a sexy car?

Do you see anything that could be a downside to this electric engine vehicle movement?

I want to hear from you.

Leave a comment saying what you’d like to know about these cars and I’ll get the answers for you. I  want to support my new friends and their genuine efforts to bridge sustainability with style and class.

Stay tuned: we’re filming the commercial soon, and we’ll be demonstrating how these cars handle on tight corners: you’ll get to see up close and first hand what it’s like to drive!

Love and Light- Namaste,
