Vintage restoration has been taken to a whole a new level with this Tesla-powered Porsche 912.
Worried your vintage car may no longer see the world outside your garage all because of some pollution rules?
- This 1968 Porsche 912, the name itself arouses the automobile fans, has been once again doing smoky burnouts courtesy of the Tesla Model S P85.
- Michael Bream, Bernardo and EV West founder, has converted the rusty shell of this Porsche into a 550-horsepower electric monster with 4,500 pound-feet of torque.
- Bream has used Tesla’s electric motor, inverter, rear differential, and even the throttle pedal along with a smaller LG Chem battery.
- The battery is split into two 16kWh portions to help balance the weight of the car and this little battery is capable of taking the car to 140 miles of range, according to Bream.
- This trend has taken the automobile sector to storm with heavyweights like Aston Martin ready to convert old cars to future-facing all-electric concept cars.
- Vintage car collectors are even more attracted with the modernist twist that comes with these cars.
- Although there is one thing that may lead people to keep their rare motor intact, that is, it may never be the same again.
