In order to avoid divergence of its self-energy the free electron at rest is described as a relativistic continuum of finite extent. It has the form of an axisymmetric torus of finite aspect ratio, which rigidly rotates around its axis of symmetry with superluminal speed (v > c). It is shown that there is a class of stationary solutions of the free-boundary value problem. The parameter dependence of these solutions is related to experimental data.
