Electric Porsche 911 by Power Station SHIFTev.com

Powered with American made DC electric muscle, capable of 400 ft/lbs of torque. The motor is mounted to the stock six speed transaxle using the first adapter produced (for this transaxle) with a twin radial bearing motor coupling system. Inside is a custom 8-pound flywheel, 6 puck copper clutch and a Stage I KEP pressure plate. It has quite a launch, out performing the gas version's 0-60MPH time.

This is a simple animation showing the early concept layout of major components. The final assembly is like this in many ways.
Modeling bulky items is great for exploring physical layout options. Parts shown: This animation includes: Zilla 2000 Amp controller, 
93 CALB CA LiFePO4 cells and some boxes, Lithiumate Pro BMS master, stock air conditioning compressor, two fuses,
Gigavac GX16BEB contactor; 12V auxiliary battery, some lids, and mounting structure. 
The boxed Porsche unibody frame structure is shown in red.

Before building battery boxes, we determined how many cells will fit by using foam blocks that are dimensionally
equivalent to the cell type to be used. Easily reconfigured and positioned for a quick visual and fit confirmation.

All cell temperature sensors (thermistors) are slipped under the shrink tube against copper battery connectors. 
While it's not a perfect indication if the center cell temperature, batteries anode and cathode transfer heat better than the plastic wall.

A nice cosmetic touch: This part mounts across the car, just above and behind the back seat.
It is highly visible when the convertible top is down.
