In 2017, UK-based Electric Classic Cars completed a ground-up restoration of a 1979 Porsche 911 E. The classic was transformed to run on electricity – thanks to a 54-kWh battery pack transplanted from a Tesla Roadster.

The Porsche EV can reaches 60 mph from a standstill in about 5.5 seconds – a level of acceleration matched by the Model 3. Except for the exceptionally quiet ride and empty engine bay, the 911 E is a dead ringer for a classic 911.
