Well it didn’t technically explode, but the engine died. And is ridiculously expensive to rebuild so this is the perfect opportunity to turn it into a new project. Making it into an electric car!
The engine is currently getting ripped apart to recover some money on ebay
2 Toyota Highlander transmissions which contain electric motors. They will be disassembled and put in the back of the Porsche to make it electric plus a motor controller and a custom built battery pack. Hopefully a short winter project 🙂
