The journey of a humble 1966 Porsche 912 from backyard beater to a 100% electric vehicle.
It all started with a scooter. And too many Porsches. Years ago in a moment of reverse-almost-midlife-crisis I bought a 1962 Vespa. Heck, I already had the Porsches.
Since my youth I wanted to own a Quadrophenia-style italian scooter. So I found a beautifully restored one, poetically, the same age as me. Once I had it for a few years, I came across a company in Seattle who was offering a retrofit kit to turn the drivetrain into a fully electric scoot. Once I did, I really fell in love with it.
Fast forward a few years.
After years of buying way too many new Porsche 911's I needed to get off the new-porsche treadmill. So after my very pleasant intro to electric vehicles via the scooter, I decided to convert a classic VW Beetle. Ya, a VW. Then changed my mind.
Heck, if I was going to convert a classic and keep it forever, why not the car I really loved. The Porsche.
That's where the story begins...
