China: See Suzhou Eagle's electric 'imitation' of the Porsche Cayman

China, Shanghai
April 21, 2015 at 05:35 GMT +00:00 · Published

Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer Suzhou Eagle showed for the first time their electric sport car, which bears a striking resemblance to the Porsche Cayman, at the 16th International Automobile and Manufacturing Technology Exhibition (Auto Shanghai 2015) hosted at the China Expo Complex in Shanghai, Tuesday.

Suzhou Eagle are specialists in the design and manufacturing of electric vehicles such as golf carts, utility cars and shuttle busses. Legal in the European Union, this new EVA car imitates many of the features of the Porsche Cayman, though Liu Dehua the head of sales denies the resemblance is total - comparing those who call it a 'clone' to guys who say a girl looks like another based purely upon their hairstyle.

Despite Liu Dehua's protestations, the imitation goes so enough as to copy the Porsche logo, using their crest look for Suzhou Eagle's logo. The specifications are where huge differences begin to emerge. The wheel-hub motors delivering 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and has a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). The battery pack gives an autonomy of over 260 km (161 miles).

Auto Shanghai is one of the worlds leading trade fairs for automobiles. Taking place every two years since 1985, the show features thousands of exhibitions from national and international manufacturers.
