There was a “kid” that called on my ’66 912 roller when I was still in California. He wanted to convert it to electric. Apparently quite a few people are attracted to the 911 or 914 chassis for a light weight, stylish electric conversion. However, I talked him out of it because I had stripped everything of value from the car and left the suspension, brakes and wheels. It would have cost him a small fortune, not to mention lots of time, to build back up the car while also paying to convert it.
I can only imagine these go up for sale when the battery life has just about bit the dust because at this price there’s no profit it in. According to the writeup, replacement bats will run about $9K.
On eBay in San Juan Capistrano for $13,995 opening bid, no reserve.
