Paul Liddle's High-Voltage Porsches
Paul Liddle, 44, drives an exotic Porsche 959, or at least a car that looks like one. It can hit 60 miles an hour from a stop in less than five seconds, he says, although its top speed of about 125 miles an hour is much less than a real 959.
The car is not a 959 at all. It is a 911 with an aftermarket body kit, but the deception does not end there. Instead of a gasoline engine, twin electric motors and lead-acid batteries power the car. Yes, it is an electric Porsche with 1,200 foot-pounds of torque off the line — that’s not a typo — and a range of 50 miles between charges.
Mr. Liddle, who owns EvPorsche in West Palm Beach, Fla., is in the business of providing competition to the Tesla Roadster. He converts Porsches into electric cars.
