Welcome to another edition of DT’s cure for the Monday morning blues — What Am I? In this better than being eaten by electric eels game
we find a random picture of a car and you get to guess what it is. Today’s featured car is sporting an array of lead-acid batteries and wires big enough to power a small city — what am I?
We’ll update the post with a link to the car later in the day.
Update: Fleetwood T Brougham solved the riddle a few minutes after posting, this is indeed a 356 with an electric drivetrain, but it is a Beck Speedster replicar. Tip from Sean.
The seller is asking an insane $50k for the car on craigslist, but the concept of a kit car with an electric drive is actually sort of cool. Imagine a Cobra replica with a good 200kW motor up front and a set of 0000-gauge wires arranged to look like headers feeding into side pipes.
