I figured I would introduce myself. I have been reading the threads for quite a while but only signed up this week.
I have been wanting to build an EV since I saw an electric VW pickup with a truckbed full of lead acid batteries in 1994. Since then I have pondered it and figured someday I would pick a car and make it happen. Then kids came along, and everything else that gets in the way.
Then a few years back I bought a Fiat 500e, then a Tesla 70d. The latter really ruined me. No longer am I going to be satisfied with an affordable "peppy" EV project. I now need to build a sleeper vintage car that outperforms anything I come across.
Being a long-time Porsche enthusiast, and having always wanted to restore a vintage Targa, I figured that I should do both dreams in the same project. I am loving what I am seeing with the Tesla drive unit projects around here (like the Teslorean) and figure to follow suit.
Of course a 911 roller is not cheap, and now I am looking at a high end conversion to boot. So this looks to be a long-term project to fund over a year or two stealing mostly from my kid's college fund. Also, I have a moral obligation to find a motorless or mis-matched numbers car that has no chance of having large collector value.
So that's my story. Hopefully I will start my build thread in the coming months - fingers crossed.
