This Vintage Speedsters Porsche 356 replica was purchased new by the current owner and was subsequently completed as an electric vehicle by Eriksson Enterprises in Del Rey Oaks, California, in 2017. Power is provided by a 96-volt Curtis single-shaft motor and five Tesla Model S battery modules paired with a Volkswagen four-speed transaxle. The car is finished in Fjord Green over a tan interior, and additional features include a Dilithium Design battery management system, a Thunderstruck Motors charger and charge controller, a louvered decklid, front disc brakes, painted wheels with Porsche-branded hubcaps, Spyder-style bucket seats, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. This EV 356 replica shows 1k kilometers (~600 miles) and is now offered on dealer consignment as part of Mohr Imports’ Monterey Car Week Collection with build documentation and a clean California title listing the car as a 1964 Volkswagen.
The fiberglass body is finished in Fjord Green and is fitted over a shortened Volkswagen chassis. Features include a tan soft top boot, polished trim and bumper guards, gold Speedster badging, and a driver-side mirror. An uninstalled tan convertible top is included in the sale.
Painted 15? wheels feature polished Porsche-branded hubcaps and wear Pirelli P4 tires. Braking is from front discs and rear drums.
The cabin features black carpets as well as tan leather on the Spyder-style bucket seats, door panels, shift boot, and emergency brake boot. Additional features include a Toyota Prius throttle pedal, a two-tone dashboard, a wood-rimmed steering wheel with a Porsche-crest horn button, and a height-adjustable rearview mirror.
