The Porsche 356 is without a doubt a classic sports car that is still treasured and loved to this day, however, this one, in particular, is no ordinary 356!
The Porsche 356 came out of the factory with a 1.6-litre flat-four petrol engine and now the new owner has swapped out the factory motor with an air-cooled Netgain (Hyper9) brushless electric motor that now produces around 120bhp and around 170 lb-ft of torque which doesn't sound like much but for this particular chassis, its absolutely perfect and still makes far more power than the factory drivetrain even when the car just rolled off the production line!
But even more impressively, this 356 still features a manual gearbox which is arguably one of the rarest features in any electric motor swaps.
