1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa – Electric Conversion Project

21st Century Classic Twist Recipe:

Take one 1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa.

Call Richard Morgan aka Moggy of Electric Classic Cars.

Once Moggy adds a 54kWh battery from a Tesla Roadster and two motors end-on-end, it’s 0-60mph (0-97km/h) time shall improve by close to 1 second.


Keeping the original transmission and only changing the power source to electric motors is sheer genius. Probably less cumbersome and cheaper to execute as well but an electric with a manual transmission? Now we are talking!

Did it come out good?

Fully Charged completely agrees in the video above.

And just in case you were wondering who would ever need one of these? Ahem.
