A: 1. Is the car full executable If you mean does it work? Yes. Might need new batteries. 2. When the car was rebuilt The build was completed 3 yrs ago. 3. Who has done the job Myself & Motorcitymotors.com 4. What is the speed of the car I got it above 80MPH, however the faster you drive the less range you get. 5. How far can you drive on one charge ~80miles. Never ran it to the ground though. 6. give me more info on batteries and motor Soliton motor controller feeds the NetGain WarP 11” motor It currently holds 47 CALB cells (180 ah SE series) that have a list price ~$250/each. Some need to be replaced. Speedometer is fed by a GPS receiver through a transducer. 7. Is there any rust on the car Can you send me more pictures on my email The car was originally in Tennesse. Perfect body except a small dent on the front (covered with a spark plug sticker) and a minor scrape on the driver side wheel well. 8. Is the vehicle register and approved in US It is fully licensed & insured in Michigan.

  2. Considering how air cooled 911's arent worth anything these days I think this makes sense

  4. What would you rather have, the looks of a 930 and the performance of a Prius, or other way around?

  5. The 911 Purists have their panties in a wad I'm sure, but It might be the only way for me to afford a 911..
    These lithium batteries SHOULD last a lot longer than 3 years-sumthin's not right.

    1. yes, the numbers do not add up in that ad, so the guy either did a deep discharge and fried his batteris or his BMS is faulty or he just does not know that much about the car. lithiums if treated right should have 7000+ charge cycles from new. that is 10 years+, not 3.

  6. Am I reading correctly? 47 batteries at $250 each? That's $11,750! (Assume: all batteries need replacing) OK, if that's 3 years worth of gas, it's roughly $75 a week plus the electric it takes to charge. I'll keep my nickle plated Edelbrock 650
