I love the passion this group shows for our cars. For me the interesting thing around the electric conversion is I sort of for-see in the not to distant future (20-30 years tops) that it's likely internal combustion engines will not be legal for street use, as two strokes are not longer legal now. In that event I'd still love to be able to enjoy my vintage car and not just have it sit in the garage.

I have a Tesla Model S as well and not even a P model, and it's still insane, faster than my 911 and as quick as my 981s. Does it stir my soul like downshifting either of those cars for a fun corner, no, but it's a competent and enjoyable car, and when stuck in traffic it sure is nice to know I'm not burning hydro-carbons, and you know what letting it drive itself in gridlock is pretty awesome. I don't care what you're driving nothing makes 40 minutes to drive 5 miles fun.

I'd love a 981 with tesla power in it, not the new hypercar roadster they're building but something more affordable, with that sort of 4.5-5 second 0-60 seems like a great daily driver.
