Have you ever wanted to own an electric car? or have you ever wanted to drive a Porsche 911? I wanted both, so I decided to build one. This blog is here to document my journey as I convert a 2002 Porsche 911/996 Carrera 2 from a gas guzzler to a completely electric vehicle - not a hybrid!

Electric Power Steering Pump

Today I started installing the Toyota MR2 electric power steering pump.  There is a nice cavity directly below the steering column that can house the new hydraulic pump.  The Porsche hydraulic reservoir was too integrated into the existing ICE pump to be usable for the new electric configuration so I bought an aftermarket reservoir which I am mounting where the old 12V car battery lived.
