This could be the unofficial predecessor of the upcoming electric Boxster or Cayman. At least this converted 914 gives an idea of what it would have looked like if the electric revolution - and lithium battery technology - would have taken place 40 years ago. The basis for the conversion was a standard Porsche 914 from 1975. The mid-engine sports car was created as a joint project by Porsche and Volkswagen and was produced between 1968 and 1977. Usually one was installed Four-cylinder boxer engine with a displacement of 1.8 liters and 76 hp or a 2.0 liter with 95 hp. But in the engine compartment of this specimen, the Californian tuner EV West (works with Volkswagen, among others) one E-Motor installed. So the 914 was converted to battery operation. The classic has been driven by one ever since HPEVS AC-50 electric motor and the energy comes from one 36 CALB LiFeP04 battery. However, the standard remains Five-speed manual.
