Electric Sports Car: Tesla, there was Porsche!

A can hardly say electric sports car the Tesla Roadster popping up in her balloon. But the best sports car in the has already been made, by Porsche — the 911. So, you can’t improve on perfection, why not it?

Paul Liddle from Class Exotics based in Palm Beach, Florida, has doing exactly that. He sports cars like Porsche Carrera and the Lamborghini into high-end, performance-oriented sports cars, and he found you can your dream EV for a lot less the 100K price tag of the Tesla.

with Paul Liddle

Me: You a variety of cars to electric, you? I see a bunch of high-end vehicles on the CoolGreenCar website, and a couple of serious exotics, but bus conversions and EMIS hybrids, What was your first and when?

Paul: 8 years ago, a 911 my 959 conversion body. I have dealing with Porsches and daily since 1986.

For who don’t speak Porsche: The 959 was a that Porsche built on the of the 911. Sort of a limited car; Jay Leno might one, but they’re quite For those of us who are not lucky enough to own one of amazing Porsche supercars, a body kit you can buy that will a 911 — there are plenty of around! — into a

Me: What was the most exotic car ever converted to electric?

Paul: The Lamborghini Diablo.


Me: It seems like those sports car conversions, the Porsches, be termed performance cars on your choice of components. Did you build your electric cars to race?

Paul: raced at several tracks. The I convert can be made as race or daily drivers.

Me: Is there a of how you build them for daily or for racing? I’m wondering, how do you get 100 out of an electric sports car?

The lead acids go more 50 miles in a Porsche. 100 miles is a 32 kwh pack of lithium iron

Me: I thought you were using polymer batteries.

Paul: We are LiFeP04 now. We built the lithium Porsche with the but since then changed

Two-motor conversions, in-wheel and direct drive

Me: I see that offering two-motor conversions. A lot of people have been me about that. How are they

Paul: Either with a or 2 controllers with 2 pots for 2

Me: The 911 you converted that’s called the One? That’s got a Kostov 11 Compared to the Warfield/NetGain motors installed more recently, how do you it?

Is it still performing well?

That car is sold, but generally are not any problems with any of the motors, just go and don’t need for a very long time.

Me: You’ve kept the Porsche train in most of those How is it holding up? I suppose the Porsche train might be more of the combination of DC series wound plenty of amps, and lead than some cars’ trains.

Paul: The Porsche is strong!

Me: It had better be, huh?

I haven’t had any failures as of yet.

Me: Do you do any conversions, or is it better to keep the transmission for an electric sports or what? Another question I get a lot is in-wheel motors.

Paul: We use Porsche transaxles but have direct drive several In wheel motors are awesome, expensive; $20k each.

Me: Ouch. Do you do any AC conversions for electric cars?

Paul: We are going to be 3 manufacturers.

Me: Did you go with direct on the Lamborghini Diablo? There any drive train info on the EV Album page .

Paul: No. because I lost my hard after the Diablo. I’ve got pictures of the car, but none of the mounted.

We customized the interior to a custom third seat in the when we got rid of the gas tank from the and then used that to strengthen the chassis.

Me: Thank Paul!

Update 2011: has moved on to other projects and is no doing these electric car conversions.

I’ve recently come a company, Venus Motor that builds electric cars like the Porsche Paul mentioned above with LiFePO4 batteries and electric drive trains.
