Looking for 550 Spyder pictures led me to this example :

Brusa Spyder Shares the Thrill of Coming Electric Sports Cars | - May 2009

Switzerland-based electric component supplier BRUSA Elektronik AG has developed an electric sports car that also looks great. The Brusa Spyder, shown recently at the EVS24 electric vehicle event in Stavanger, Norway, borrows not only its name, but also its styling cues and powertrain layout from the legendary Porsche 550 Spyder.

The Brusa Spyder is powered by a pair of 134 horsepower (100 kW) Hybrid-Synchron electric motors for a total of nearly 270. Each motor drives one rear wheel through its own controller. This eliminates the differential and offers the potential of great driving dynamics achieved by torque vectoring.

With 324 lbs-ft of torque, Brusa says the 2200 pound (1000 kg) two-seater can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in under five seconds. Using a two stage transmission, gear shifting is not required from 32 to 124 mph (50 to 200 km/h).
Me likey power to weight ratio.
