Zedriv GT3- The Porsche 911 Inspired EV from China

If you think Chinese automakers have stopped copying famous cars which they frequently used to, you’d be wrong. The latest is the Zedriv GT3 electric sports concept that is displayed at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show.

Zedriv is a new EV-brand from China, owned by the state-owned China National Machinery Industry Corporation, better known as Sinomach. The company brought a couple of cars to the show, including the GT3 which grabbed the attention of onlookers with its remarkable paint job and its striking resemblance with the Porsche 911.

The design also reminds you of the Nissan 370z and the Alpine A110 from certain angles. Measuring 4,000/1,650/1,280mm and a wheelbase of 2,380 it’s even smaller than the Honda City or Toyota Belta for that matter.

Reportedly the car’s electric powertrain produces up to 131 horsepower which may not seem to be too much for a sports car but Zedriv says the car weighs just 1149kg, so that sort of power should be very helpful. The car can do 0-100km/h in 7.6 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 160km/h powered with a 33.9kWh battery pack. It can travel up to 260km on a full charge.
