Project Next

So the itch has set in again. Anne Kloppenborg of New Electric Amsterdam has accused me of operating a slow motion conversion shop, and I suppose he's right.

I've been on the prowl for a conversion candidate since starting to accumulate parts. Here it is, a 1988 Porsche 924 S. I've started a new project blog with all the details. Please check it out.

What does this mean for the evTD? Nothing, really. The evTD is great fun, a smooth driver, and gets lots of attention on the street and at car shows. It's a big hit at wedding receptions, but also completely impractical as transportation. Perfect for a ride in the hill country, not so good for a run to the grocery. So the Porsche will be replacing the Nissan Leaf when it comes off lease next June, and assume that role in the Behning fleet alongside the evTD and the Wife's Prius.

  1. Nice! I've been keeping on eye on the 924s as well. Since it's not "a real Porsche", but with an Audi inline four in the front, they're quite cheap. But the same configuration that makes them cheap, front engine with rear drive, would make them excellent conversion candidates. I'll be definitely watching your progress on this closely.
