“Make your Porsche a hybrid hot rod.” – Popular Science
Popular Science awards Shadow Drive “Best of What’s New”.
Excellence magazine drives a 718 Spyder from Belgium with a stealth Shadow Drive installation.
Total 911 explores Tedson Motor’s DAYDREAM project which was unveiled at Monaco recently, it features Shadow Drive to reach 540bhp and 630Nm.
“Shadow Drive works like it was developed by an OEM whohad tens of millions of dollars and years to sort it out.”
“With the flat-six singing as usual, the added torque made the 911 pull substantially harder at lower revs, as if two additional cylinders had been grafted on”
“This Safari-Themed Porsche 911 Turbo S Hides Electrifying Secret”
“Instantly, that motor kicks in, boosting the native engine’s horsepower and torque by roughly 50 percent and giving me an idea of how Popeye feels after gulping spinach.”
“Safari-style Porsche 991 911 Turbo S Packs Hybrid Power”
“This upgrade adds 150 hp and 150 ft-lb of torque that kicks in supplemental power throughout the acceleration cure, boosting the performance at high and low speeds, while still keeping all of the original engine growl”
“Silicon Valley-based hybridization shop Vonnen and Wisconsin custom builder Kelly-Moss celebrate a new partnership by unleashing the coolest Porsche 911 we’ve seen in some time”
” The ability to increase performance without affecting fuel consumption, emissions and driving behavior sets the system apart from conventional options.”
“It’s a bit like a turbo, without the lag and more power. It’s good. It’s very, very good”
“Suddenly, 3.4 liters turns into what feels like 5.0. The difference in thrust is unmistakable.”
“Shadow Drive … is a legitimate performance upgrade ahead of the factory’s own development curve.”
“Shadow Drive delivers better than your typical aftermarket power-adder in every way.”
“Automotive modification is gearing up for an evolution. I know, because I’ve already driven it. Recently, I found myself behind the wheel of a 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera equipped with Vonnen Performance’s Shadow Drive aftermarket hybrid system. It totally blew my mind.”
“The regenerative braking system works very well, and the batteries charge up during any off-throttle driving.”
“With the Vonnen solution, the hybrid system provides that instant and clean power yet retains the traditional modern Porsche 911 driving experience. Having all this performance is great, but having it in a safari-themed 911 is icing on the cake.”
“With Overboost enabled the Porsche leapt ahead from a stop and made it to 60 in about 3 seconds. Suddenly the 10-second limit in Overboost mode seemed like plenty of time. That means not only is the future electric, but potentially the past as well.”
“As is the fact you can be first to say you own a hybrid 911; that’s something that Porsche itself is still not yet able to offer.”
“The PDK-equipped test car sometimes feels mild at higher rpm in internal-combustion-only mode, but it positively comes alive when the electric motor kicks in, offering considerably greater flexibility.”
“We all know Porsche plans a hybrid 911, but Silicon Valley firm Vonnen has beaten Stuttgart to it.”
“It’s deceptively quick, it’s so linear and progressive in its delivery that you’ll find yourself carrying way more speed than you think.”
“This is the reason this system exists, the theater we’ve just witnessed; performance dialed deceptively further than the badge on the car would indicate.”
“In the meantime, the Shadow Drive, which adds 150 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque to the 911’s internal-combustion engine, delivers the exclusive experience of driving a hybrid Porsche.”
“This aftermarket system designed by Vonnen Performance (a spinoff of Porsche suspension specialists Elephant Racing) could be the upgrade you’ve been waiting for. “
“In between technical presentations, PCA Past President Manny Alban drove the car and gave us his impressions, while Vonnen CEO Chuck Moreland went in depth about the system in front of our cameras.”
“The Top Ten Coolest Street Porsches From Rennsport.”
“Shadow Drive doesn’t just describe how the motor interacts with the gasoline engine but also how the whole system plays nicely with all the onboard computers.”
“Vonnen Performance is a subdivision of Elephant Racing that specializes in custom Porsche suspension kits. Their latest project, however, is something entirely different.”
“All of the modifications don’t require any cutting or chopping of the engine and chassis, which is even better news for interested owners.”
“Silicon Valley’s Vonnen beats Porsche to an electrified 911.”
“Vonnen’s hybrid kit is compatible for any 911 model built from 2012 to 2016 and starts at $75,000. More so, you can even have it fitted on the Boxter and Cayman as well. Kits for other model 911’s including air-cooled models are currently in development.”
“This isn’t the kind of hybrid system that’s going to give your 911 an EV-only range… It’s purely for performance.”
“In other words, the folks at Vonnen Performance must have gotten tired of all the rumors swirling around regarding the upcoming 911 Hybrid, and thus decided to take matters into their own hands.”
