My Electric Porsche 914
UPDATE: Wow. I made this for college applications 3 years ago and lost the
password to the account. I had no idea it had become this popular. I was
gonna delete it but perhaps I'll make a second one first.
ALSO IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED: Since I went off to college, the car has been
collecting dust. I'm the only one who ever drove it. So if someone is
looking for a project, get in touch. My father and I haven't had the heart
to get rid of something we put so much time into but it really could use
someone who is more attentive to it.
I'm Harrison and this is a video showing a test ride in my electric 914. I,
influenced by Tesla Motors, converted this with my father, a physicist. The
kit we bought was NOT very well designed. We made many improvements.
200 volt Li-ion battery pack, 48 cells - Thundersky Batteries
DMOC 445 Motor Controller - Azure Dynamics
3-Phase A.C. Motor - Azure Dynamics
Close to original curb weight
Sorry to say that we haven't quite tested its full capabilities.
So far I've driven it at 55mph, but it could go way above that -- 70 or
The range is hardest to test because you have to run the battery all the
way out which makes it hard to get back. 60 miles before recharge is what
we've done which is a week of driving.
I'll update when we do more range/speed tests.
If we could do it again we would make better purchasing decisions and
actually design it before the purchase.
