9 minutes at 150 miles of range.
Probably about 38kwh worth of power.
Needs to charge at about 230kw.
That would require a 500 amp 480v connection, a 4,160v connection would more practical.
The battery should be at least 50kwh to take that much charge, 70kwh preferably or the bigger the better.
At fairly standard 400 volt pack voltage the pack would be taking 575 amps. Higher voltage packs would be better.

I'm not going to say it's impossible because those are very possible numbers.
My leaf can be charged at 48kw, that's enough to pick up 2 to 3 miles per minute and that's 2008 to 2009 technology.

I'm not a debunker I'm a critical realist.
Don't BS someone who has a degree on the subject, that's all I ask.
