Fast and Cheap: Mark s 100% Electric Porsche

Emon’s electric Porsche Conversions are the cheaper option.

Emon, owner of St. Michaels found out the last weekend in that he had placed fifth in a of plans to convert a standard car to electric power.

Emon s was to convert a 1973 Porsche 914 to power, and he had hopes of winning the and taking home the prize worth of parts to finish the

Out of 955 I finished fifth, Emon recently in a telephone conversation. it was a winner-take-all contest.

The contest was by EVTV (Electric Vehicle Motor Verks, and the winner was by votes cast on a website. The winner was announced Sept. 24 at a conference at Cape Girardeau, Mo.

It was a thing, Emon said. It was the vehicle conversion conference in the

The conference drew people all over the planet, Emon mentioning attendees from the Netherlands and four or five New Zealand. People bought cars from all over the he said. It was a fantastic event.

The also featured cars had been converted. They had all the outside, Emon said. had a drag strip and a Formula One with all the turns. Everybody

It was all these people with the notion in the same place. minds were sharing worked and what didn t.

Emon has been interested in vehicles for a few years he has an electric and an electric forklift at the winery is his first attempt at building an car. He said he bought the with the explicit purpose of it to electric power.

The project was by more than a year, because Emon was having so fun driving (the car) with its original internal engine. In fact, the car actually for itself when it was time to get on the conversion the engine died and into flames last a result of dry rotting in the 38-year-old line, Emon said.

One of the advantages of building an electric car Emon said, is the vehicles much more affordable in the range as opposed to the $100,000 of big-name electric car manufacturer Motors. Emon didn t consider the electric models unveiled by Chevy and Nissan as calling them lame.

is the only company you can really buy and they re expensive, he said.

a grassroots movement toward cars seems to be catching on, a few are lacking, Emon said, educational programs and infrastructure.

has plans to address both deficiencies, though, by working Calhoon Marine Engineers Association to develop an intensive course on building electric and encouraging businesses to establish stations by creating a phone app maps the stations.

Within the app, Emon to designate the different tiers of stations, branding them drinking and gulping stations. stations would be basic outlets that charge the but not quickly; drinking stations be the current standard electric charging stations, like the one at St. Winery; and gulping stations be the next wave of charging charging vehicles much quickly, but needing a lot of power to do so.

I can see being a national thing, said of the app, which not would allow business to post charging stations by a photo but let electric vehicle easily find a station a certain radius.

Until strides are made with stations, Emon said, stations are going to be heavily upon, which many including St. Michaels, have installed on the streets for lighting

You can t swing a stick without an anymore, he said.

Meanwhile, the course also would be nationally, and would target who want to build a car independently, as as those thinking of entering commercial production, Emon

I would think there be people who would want to this leap, he said. If re laying out $30,000, why not spend $1,000 to take a course and with confidence? You might save by just not damaging those parts are expensive.

said he hopes he ll be through the Porsche within a few months. He has the motor out of the car and the electric in, and the latest of the job involved dumping the aluminum plate pattern battery box and a fiberglass one, instead. The box is a big part of the process. Every inch of the car has been crammed batteries, he said.

The new version of the car will feature 24 cells in the engine compartment, 12 in the trunk and another 24 in the front a total of 60.

The aluminum diamond was just too close to the major connection to the motor, he said. of cutting in a piece of rubber he said, he decided to remake the box out of fiberglass, which is much

The main focus of anybody who with cars and electricity is he said.

Emon said he was forward to the end of the conversion project, so he be an evangelist for the cause of electric

Would being an evangelist letting other people the car?

Oh hell, yeah, he This Porsche I m converting be dramatically better than the car in performance and efficiency.

The difference the gasoline and electric engines be the main selling point for the version. You have to understand an electric motors have 100 torque from the first he said. You have to gradually a half-second or so apply the pressure.

Emon had to replace the flywheel assembly on the car, using a stage 2 racing clutch, to the increase in torque.

That 100 torque will attract he said.

It s not the green part will make people these cars, he said. It s the part.
