PLUG-IN PORSCHE 911

The first PLUG-IN PORSCHE 911 from Sacrilege Motors will break cover at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours.

PLUG-IN PORSCHE 911

Sacrilege Motors, a bespoke performance, restoration and electric-conversion studio, will reveal its first Porsche 911 commission on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 20, 2023. Sacrilege Motors is the premier restoration and electric-conversion company devoted to evolving the classic Porsche 911 by preserving its analog driving feel and precise handling, while updating its performance and reducing its environmental impact.

Nicknamed BLACKBIRD by its owner, in honor of the supersonic Lockheed SR-71 aircraft, this  triple-black commission, a ‘92 Porsche 911 America Roadster, is the first to be restored, performance-tuned, and converted to an electric powertrain at Sacrilege Motors’ headquarters in Lakeville, CT. Housed in a former Skip Barber facility, Sacrilege Motors chose the location for its proximity to  the historic Lime Rock Park racing circuit, where the BLACKBIRD PLUG-IN PORSCHE 911 development testing took place. The Porsche 911 America Roadster is a limited-edition, U.S. version of the Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet Turbo-look, one of 250 made. Originally equipped with a Tiptronic  transmission, this car now has a single-gear, all-electric powertrain.

PLUG-IN PORSCHE 911

“Our passion for Porsche cars is paramount to this project,” said Bobby Singh, Sacrilege Motors’ president and technical lead. “We want to deliver an analog, air-cooled-era 911 with the reliability and instant power of an EV, while preserving an exhilarating driving experience that’s familiar to air-cooled 911 enthusiasts. Retaining the 911’s best handling characteristics, with added performance and up graded components, all while reducing its environmental impact, was our ultimate goal. We’ve kept  the same weight distribution, which is crucial to the car feeling like a Porsche 911 should.”

“Since 1997 I have owned a Porsche 911 993 Turbo…my dream car, maintained by Bobby for almost  30 years.” Sacrilege Motors CEO Phil Wagenheim said. “For this commission, we set out to maintain the soul of a Porsche 911 and familiarity of its driving experience, while adding a low-maintenance, high-performance powerplant. I’m not telling anyone to give up internal combustion…I’m not. What we are doing at Sacrilege is we’re just adding an electric power option to your analog quiver of fun.”

Ford Escort 1600i

The Ford Escort was the most searched-for car in 2021, according to Car & Classic – the classified and online auction website.

‘Dream cars’ such as the Porsche 911 and Jaguar E-Type, lead the search data during the pandemic, but 2021 saw classic car fans seeking more mainstream vehicles including the BMW 3 Series.

Across 2021, the Ford Escort toppled the Porsche 911, with the RS2000 the model most searched-for from the European Escort’s 34-year lifetime.

Recent Escort auction sales on Car & Classic include £25,500 for a Mk3 RS1600i (pictured) and £50,000 for a Mk1 Twin Cam.

Over the past 12 months, searches for the Triumph Stag more than doubled, securing third place.

It was closely followed by the 1980s’ E30 version of BMW 3 Series. More than a quarter of the specific searches for the compact saloon were for the iconic M3.

The rise in searches for the E30, up nearly 20% on 2020, follows sharp rises in the values for the M3 over the past five years. Published prices of the 24 road cars currently on Car & Classic span £40,000 to £189,000.

Other cars in the top 10 include the Ford Mustang and Jaguar E-Type, both growing by 10%. Slipping down the order, despite a similar number of searches in 2020, was the MGB GT.

Underlining rising demand for Japanese sports cars, the Toyota Supra and MR2, plus the Mazda RX-7 and Datsun 240Z all appeared in the top 20 searches of 2021.

Top 10 searches of 2021

  1. Ford Escort
  2. Porsche 911
  3. Triumph Stag
  4. E30 BMW 3 Series
  5. Ford Mustang
  6. Jaguar E-Type
  7. Ford Capri
  8. VW Beetle
