completely pointless,other opinions are available Very Happy the whole appeal to a classic is the feel the smell and the noise and an old 911 dripping oil all over your garage so to me I just don't get it. Don't think we will save the planet converting classics.

Interesting subject - with battery/electric motor technology developing at its current rate it will be tempting to put a modern 911 rivalling performance in an older car.

Sure it will sound like a milk float and but some owners will be swayed by the performance gains/congestion charge etc.

Will Hartech be the first to provide this option? Probably not.
