Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

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.

ReBirth Auto's Fully Electric 1978 Porsche Carrera- 2 WarP 9's - Inside and Drive
This is the inside of the custom built fully electric vehicle built by
Rebirth Auto in St. Petersburg, FL. It is a Porsche Carrera from 1978
which these guys put some serious time and effort into. This is one amazing
system that uses tons of the Headway 10ah lithium cells and accelerates
like a bat out of hell. It uses 2 WarP 9in motors in series running off of
a single Soliton 1 from Evnetics. It outputs 400hp and 600ftlbs of torque
with the conservative setting they run to help save their clutch. Thanks
to all of the guys out there for being such wonderful hosts, we will be
doing just about all of our electric business through those two companies.

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2
speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct
drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current,
these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used
this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit
of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric
cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more
