Kelly-Moss Road and Race named first certified North American reseller installer of Shadow Drive performance hybrid technology
Silicon Valley-based Vonnen and Madison, WI-based Porsche specialist Kelly-Moss Road and Race (KMR), announced KMR as a certified reseller installer of Shadow Drive performance hybrid systems. Together with the announcement, KMR debuted Shadow Drive equipped, safari-themed 991 Series Porsche 911 Turbo S.
“KMR is the caliber of partner that will serve customers well in the Midwest region," said Chuck Moreland, Founder and CEO of Vonnen. "They are highly respected in the Porsche community with a well-earned reputation for competence and quality earned through their rich racing heritage and popular safari cars. KMR will help us expand our footprint to meet growing demand in the region.”
According to Vonnen, Shadow Drive works by integrating an electric motor into a car’s drivetrain between engine and transmission, supplementing the existing combustion engine with an electric motor. In this way, it combines the sounds and tactile experience of driving a combustion engine-powered car with the instant response, wide powerband, and energy recovery features of an EV, supplying an extra 150 hp and 150 ft lb of electric torque.
“The experience Shadow Drive provides is both impressive and addictive, and we can’t wait to offer this unique tuning solution to our customers,” said Andy Kilcoyne, KMR Director of Operations. “The ability to boost power without trading off fuel economy, emissions, and drivability really sets it apart from traditional power adders. It’s like adding the instant torque of a Tesla to the raw driving excitement of a Porsche – the best of both worlds. We are confident that our customers will find it a welcome addition to both stock and modified cars alike.”
KMR will provide sales, installation, and support. As part of its relationship with Vonnen, Kelly-Moss will have a demonstrator vehicle on hand for customers to experience Shadow Drive for themselves.
The Safari-themed 911 will be on display at Das Renn Treffen, Amelia Concours Week, and at Caffeine and Octane in Atlanta, and it is also available for customer demonstrations at the company’s headquarters.
