How do you turn a hot rod Porsche [2] into an electric vehicle? According to Jeff McCabe, who made his own homebrew EV Porsche [3], you first strip off any excess weight until you’ve taken a whopping 1,700 lbs off the frame. Then stuff it back up with lithium ion batteries, add a plug and give it a snazzy paint job. For GigaOM TV’s latest episode of our Green Overdrive video show we got a tour of the electric Porsche from McCabe [3]. It’s electrifying!
