Hi everyone
I’m from Dubai and have previously restored Porsches, but am considering a new EV conversion.

Call me crazy, but found a cheap 968 Boxster for sale. Anyone willing to tell me not to even start thinking about it....?

Anyways, great to join the community. Looking forward to the discussions.

I assume that you mean a 986 - the first generation of Boxster (1996-2004). While any Porsche is stupidly expensive here, the conversion might make sense there.

The 968 has a relatively straightforward McPherson strut suspension (front and rear), so a variety of salvaged EV drive units might fit, and with the right choice a good-sized battery pack could go in the engine space.

Good luck with your project. :)
