Taking an unmistakable racing silhouette from forty years prior and fitting an electric motor between its haunches is something that only Bisi Ezerioha would imagine. Owner of Bisimoto, this enthusiastic engineer has created some of the wildest cars in recent history. Some of his brainchildren include a Honda Odyssey with quad-digit power, a center-seat Boxster, and a '75 911 with 850 horsepower. But it's not the power which sets his creations apart—it's that fact that Bisi leaves no stone unturned in his quest to build something unique.
His new "935," nicknamed K3V as a nod to some of the Kramer-built monsters, is a mouth-watering combination of old and new. The gray and pink paint scheme that hearkens back to those of the era, those turbo-fan wheels, a pared down interior with Momo bits—all of which have been given a 21st-century touch—are just lovely, tasteful, and a nod to that which made IMSA GT racing in the seventies and eighties so special. Even more than classic motorsport, Bisi loves modern engineering, and few can blend the two as seamlessly as he can.
No Sound, No Loss of Power
Though a low center of gravity was one of the biggest perks of running the original flat-six, the three-phase electric motor from EV West is far better in this regard. It also leaves a comically large void in the engine bay, but that's alright—anybody with the vision and panache to pull off such a project gets as many passes as they wish for.
It's not any worse off in terms of performance, either. The K3V might not have the searing top-end or the flame-spitting ability of the original 935, but it doesn't have any turbo lag, either. The motor, fed by 12 LG chem cells, makes 636 horsepower—more than enough to propel the 2,800-pounds car. That, combined with immediate torque and the 935's immense traction leaves Bisi laughing like a giddy schoolboy.
It's not only Bisi's unrivaled imagination which brought this build to fruition, but also the broad network of friends and supporters able to work within the theme of this vehicle. The working lights, intuitive AEM electronics, Stoptech brakes, and modern hoses—all quietly housed in a classic frame—provide Bisi enough safety and comfort to drive the K3V on a semi-regular basis. Imagine the shock of seeing a Porsche 935 leaving a Ralph's parking lot without so much as a peep!
It's enough to get someone thinking they're beginning to lose their marbles.
