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!

Adapter plate and motor coupler arrived!

Today the adapter plate and coupler arrived.  I eagerly tested the fit of the components.  I discovered there were a few issues.  Charlie at EVCouplerConnection.com was very responsive and provided some solutions to address the issues.  Here is a video showing the test fitting.  I have to mail some components back to Charlie and he plans to fix them next week.


  1. Looks like you need a couple new O-Rings on your engine lift...

  2. Hey Kurt, I know it's been a few years since this posted, but I want to ask what the issues were that you encountered. I am currently converting a 2000 Boxster with a tiptronic transaxle, and would like to know what to expect.
