Vintage Porsche 912 Gets Tesla Upgrade – CleanTechnica

A vintage Porsche 912 has gone electrical with a Tesla Design S transplant, Green Car Reports reports. The 1928 Porsche 912 was transformed by Zelectric as well as was lately revealed on Jay Leno’s Garage. Davide Bernardo as well as Trent Wonsley revealed Leno just how they converted the timeless Porsche into a fully electrical automobile.

For those bothered with modifying an immaculate car, Zelectric does not cut or weld anything and the car can be converted back to its original state if wanted. (Yet that would desire that?)

The classic automobile used the very same body covering as the 911 but initially had a 4-cylinder engine. The power system lies in the back as well as drives the rear wheels. The motor, which is installed in the back, fits in almost the exact same location it would in a Tesla yet just adds 300 extra pounds over the supply aesthetic weight– while taking up less space.

The lorry is estimated at 2,505 extra pounds due to having just 34kWh of batteries. It is half the weight of a Tesla Version S.
