The naysayer guy is like.. "If you take an extremely rare car and put a different motor in it, that's bad.." Ya think? Meanwhile in reality, the Beetles and 912's they're putting EV parts in are a dime a dozen on auto trader. I think it's a great idea, especially for vintage cars that had good looks, but were notoriously underpowered.

Would LOVE to take a classic like a Plymouth Barracuda & completely strip it internally so it's electrically driven & got all the mod cons, but looks classic on the outside...
Shock everyone.

I don’t know if anyone has recently seen these EV WEST dudes on The Jim Khana channel but they ain’t this relaxed and laid back in that video... you’ll know what I mean when you see it they shred harder then anyone who’s been there it’s amazing! 😂

Yeah having a vintage car defeats the purpose of vintage car. As they showed many times on Grant Tour (and I think Top Gear), the old motors and other tech in old cars and old cars in general are horrid to use day-to-day. But if you were to somewhat give most of the modern tech and functions to old car then the sentiment and simplicity will possibly win and the little faults left won't be really noticeable.

Kudos! Side Note: I have never been a fan of the noxious fumes from burning tyres. Tyre companies sponsor burn out competitions...

Don't be dissing Corbin Dunn. He built the plug bug himself, with a far more limited range of parts available at the time. He doesn't deserve to be sneered at by people who lack his skills.

Most people want a old car that will not break down and be modern. That’s why they have a 3-4 year wait to get one.

Best of both worlds. The look and style of an old car, with the power of a new one. Plus its great for the world! Not only are these cars electric, they are basically recycled. :)

Even though the 912 is basically the same as a 911, it's a good thing they didn't convert the 911 otherwise there would be thousands of people getting angry about it.

There are very few cases for keeping the stock everything of a car, if they're part of a very rare and special collection and if the internals are what differentiates that model from others.

There are still so many beetles and 911's driving around that having a few thousand turned into electrics is no big deal in preserving the purity of said models. However, if the time comes and only a handful of those cars exist on this Planet than I'd be fine with having them as stock as possible and preserved.

Addendum, if a car is brought back from the scrapyard and the owner wants to restore it as he wishes than he should be praised for giving it a second life, no matter what makes the wheels turn.

If Volkswagen/Porsche built the old Beetle/911 again, exactly the same look and just as easy to repair, rebuild and maintain as the original, but the components were built using modern knowledge and materials to improve handling, balance, performance, and most important, safety, HOW MANY consumers would laser beam their wallets to get one?

Having a carbon fiber reinforced Beetle straight from the factory for the price of a standard sedan? I'll take it.

Maybe they can FORCE VW to fix all the Diesel engines emission problems that they lied about, and convert them ALL to Electric as part of a Consumer settlement. instead of just sending every car owner who was cheated $57 bucks !!! As part of a "Class Action lawsuit" !!! ( where is our consumer protection, and environmental protection agencies ??? Where is our GOVERNMENT ??? ... too busy investigating who Trump Slept with yester-Decades Ago .. when he was a teenager !!!).

At 2:16 the rear shows "911VTR" is this a 911 or a 912? I'm not that familiar with Porsche.

The Petersen is in the business of old cars as they were. One day, they will need special permits to even drive them out the door as petrol vehicles get banned from cities.
Converted electrics - way cool way to keep classic chassis on the road and having fun :)
