Hi Guys....
Happy Sinterklaas... My apologies for not posting much. I am a little of a recluse. I work from home and stay there. Living in the Aussie Bush make it easy to lose contact.

I found this:

newatlas.com/aston-martin-heritage-ev-co...utm_term=Read%20more

Jaguar have made an Electric E-type.

I may be stuck down in flames… but wouldn’t it be cool if Porsche did this.

If it is something we like, perhaps the group could approach Porsche. No point in contacting Porsche Australia – no one takes us seriously anyway. I am a realist, if it comes from the good old US of A the Germans may take notice.

Anyway, just the rambles of a grumpy old bloke in the country.

Dan

There have been multiple 928 conversions where a Chevy motor has been installed, so adding an electric motor would not be so different.

The bigger issue would be placement of the batteries. Preserving the 50 - 50% front/rear weight balance should be a major goal. Would they all be stuffed under the hood?

Mate - Thank for the reply.

Good point about the batteries.

Perhaps Porsche could help. But as batteries are becoming more energy dense, it may get easier.
Crossing fingers...something happens. I love the real Porsche motor, but with fuel at AUD1.75 a litre, it is expensive. I have PV so it is not a big stretch - aside from the cost of the conversion...ha-ha
