  • Alloy-bodied Daytona discovered in Japanese barn

    World’s only road-going alloy-bodied Daytona discovered in Japanese barn!

  • 'Electric' Porsche 911 now @ our showrooms

    by Garry Shortt | Aug 1, 2017

    The fabulous 1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa that was converted to 'Electric' power by the Electric Classic car Company has now arrived at our showrooms and is on sale @ £85,000!

    This unique Porsche 911 3.0 SC Targa was first registered on 19th November 1979 and has covered just 500 miles since the conversion to 'electric' power!

    It has just been fully restored and converted to electric power by the Electric Classic Car company and the works included a complete bare metal restoration with numerous parts having been fitted throughout. 
    The Engine was removed and replaced with a maintenance free and air cooled 100kw brushless 3 phase AC double winding Electric Motor mated to the original 5 Speed Manual Gearbox and it produces 220lbs of torque from '0' mph.

    The batteries are from a Tesla Roadster and there are 18 of these 3 kwh batteries (54 kwh's in total) split over both front and rear of the car - approximately 48/52 for optimal weight distribution and a recent study found that the Tesla batteries will last to about 95% of their original capacity over 300k miles and the electric motor also has a similar lifespan.

    The Braking system has also been upgraded with a new larger Master Cylinder and new Ventilated Discs with 8 pot Brake Calipers to manage the additional power generated from the electric motor in this car! 

    It has an 'Eco' mode and a 'Power' mode button on the dash which allows you to have what power you require and it also has 'Regenerative Braking' (charges batteries on deceleration), EZ electric Power Steering, Electric Heating, New Braid replica Fuchs Alloy Wheels with new Pirelli Tyres, Electric Porsche Boxster Seats, new LED Headlights and a Type 2 on-board 7kw charging system with the plug under the petrol flap, Alarm/Immobiliser with Central Locking, and a Porsche Classic Stereo with built in Sat Nav.

    This example has been modified to resemble an early 1970's 911E and these modifications included a complete chrome trim set, opening chrome 1/4 lights, polished stainless Targa Roll-Over Bar, new Engine lid and grille (original Spoiler removed) and Gold 911E badges. 

    The 0-60mph is around 7 seconds and very similar to the original car, but it feels significantly quicker due to the max torque effect of the electric motor from stand stiil and the range with this set up is around 200 miles, although this is dependant upon driving style.

    Also featured in August's 911 & Porsche World magazine.

    Upon sale it will come with our own customer care package including a 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 12 months Mechanical Breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required. The Electric Motors require no maintenance and should last for in excess of 10/15 years if not longer and the tesla Batteries the same!

    This is a very unique car which is just the start of the 'electric revolution' for Classic Cars!
