The video lasts only 14 seconds but it shows a Porsche 912 converted to run on electric power smoking the tires with enough style to make John Force blush. But that's not why I really thought the video was important to post. The info box on the YouTube page calls attention to a small outfit called Grassroots Electric Vehicles, a company based in Florida that provides variety of parts and advice for DIY electric car builders. The shop offers motors, adapters, controllers and batteries in addition to all the hardware and switches necessary for a home-based conversion. They're even into solar options, scooters and NEVs. And if you don't want the hassle converting your own vehicle, they have a few for sale.
