How to Make an Old Car an EV - /ENGINEERED
Learn on Monday, wrench smarter on Sunday. Today: Electric Conversions! Introducing a NEW series on /DRIVE, aimed at educating you to build a faster, better, more reliable car: /ENGINEERED. We want to empower our fellow enthusiasts to know more, and do more, by learning from some of the best engineers in the game. This week we talk to the geniuses at EV West about their passion for converting the drive trains of classic cars from gas to electric. We wanted to know what it takes, what the response is, and how complicated it is. You may scream "blashemy", but you'll be surprised how fast they can be. Just ask Matt Farah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVkJjt_Peg0





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. Specs: 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 80 perhaps. 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. www.electroauto.com sells kits and individual parts. Feel free to ask questions!
