356HP Electric Conversion:1978 Porsche 911SC

I am a big fan of what Tesla is doing in the automotive industry, and I’ll be the first to admit not giving them much chance of survival when launched (hence rule #12, never underestimate Iron Man Elon Musk).  However, given the choice between dropping almost six figures on a used Tesla Roadster or picking up this next customized Porsche….I’m gonna have to choose the latter.  Find this 1978 Porsche 911 SeleCtric offered here on eBay bidding for $21,100 with a few hours to go.

 This 911 has had its aircooled flat-6 replaced with a set of two Netgain Warp9 electric DC motors controlled by a Evnetics Soliton1 controller capable of a combined 356 horsepower.  Range is estimated at less than 50 miles according to the seller, and you can see a few videos about this thing here, here, and here.
