Students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been busy converting a 1976 Porsche 914 to all-electric-power. Fitted with 18 high-tec batteries, this classic Porsche acts as a platform to monitor battery output and performance.

http://web.mit.edu/mitei/education/spotlights/electric-porsche.html

When the car is running, a specially-designed electronic system transmits data to an onboard laptop, which in turn measures “the conditions that batteries encounter inside an operating vehicle.”

Mechanical engineering graduate student Craig Wildman, “Now we get to take data while we’re driving. We can record everything that happens, come back and change parameters, and test drive it again.”

“In the laboratory we work on materials to make batteries safer, last longer, and have higher energy,” said Professor Yang Shao-Horn. “But we are also interested in gaining a good perspective on the system. What’s involved in building an electric vehicle, and what’s required of the batteries.”

Porsche 914 BEV

EVT is currently finalizing conversion of a 1976 Porsche 914 into a battery electric vehicle (BEV) using 18 Valence Technology lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. The car is a 1976 Porsche 914. The car is small and light, weighing only 2100 lbs before the conversion. We removed the engine, exhaust lines, and fuel tank and installed an electric motor, 18 batteries, a battery charger, and various smaller components.

The batteries are located in areas that allow easy access for experimentation: in the trunk, under the hood, and above the motor. The conversion resulted in a net weight increase of approximately 200 lbs. We estimate the vehicle will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 20 seconds, and the range will be about 130 miles.
