Check out Electric Classic Cars - electriccla...

We've got two classic Ferraris going head-to-head for our latest drag race - the Ferrari 308 GTS and the Ferrari Testarossa! But all is not as it seems...

Now back in the day, you would say this would be a walkover for the Testarossa. After all, with a 4.9-litre flat-twelve under the bonnet, the Testarossa can produce 390hp \u0026 480Nm! In comparison, the 308 GTS was powered by a 2.9-litre V8 with the ability to put down just over 200hp.

However, this is no ordinary 308... It's got rid of the V8, and replaced it with a Tesla battery \u0026 motor! And as a result, it now produce an almighty 450hp \u0026 600Nm!

So the Testarossa may be a fanboy favourite, but surely it doesn't have what it takes to keep up with this all electric counterpart, right?! Well there's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    Well, unfortunately we will see more horrendous things like this happening over the years. Classics with legendary engines going electric because they say the world is being destroyed by car pollution. If this is true I don't know, but the only certainty is that I didn't want to live in this era when classic cars become a Max Steel car 🤮🤮🤮

    If electric powered car show the proof of performances at all RPM (as gas engine rpm eq) If they also showed their mile range, they missed the best of car : emotion, feeling, heartbeat, love and passion around the roaring engine. And how about the destruction of collectable in front of few ecologic fanatic ? Not sure this way is the right. For the moment I'm sure the car collectables, and a reasonable effort in car emissions is enough for the world! If the whole world follow. Hard for the politic, easy for us. But is it is, the car enthusiasts, to pay for the rest of world unrespectful ? No for sure ! Let me play my hobby, let me my cars, I've enough sacrifice and pay for it. And now dear world of politic, do the hard job as us, go all over the world to apply same hard laws I live every day The world will be saved, and I'll kept my gasoline cars in their original state. And fun. Jérôme from FRANCE

    the TR always seemed goofy. Where the 308 GTSi always was gorgeous, though grossly underpowered. Now you have a worthy powerplant to make the 308 GTSi a fast beats. Technically we can cal it 308GT-TEP (TE=Tesla Electric Powerplant. I hear Formula 1 will have a racing circuit that is EV. As materials technology improves you might have EVs that turn on whether it is outside bitter cold or hot. AND Rapidly charge. And go long distances. There is a fuel source that will have your car run for a very long time : THORIUM but the Petrol cartels will forbid that technology from ever developing. You will ruin them. it is said China and India are developing that technology. Perhaps the oil and Uranium lobby will forbid it too.... I am all for using the stat of the art technology for any vehicle. The 308 GTSI always looked ultra modern. The side scoops always looked like they were used to cool an engine, any engine, ICE (internal combustion engine) or EV (electric vehicle). Too sexy for its shape to die.

    As there are loads of 308 GTEs knocking about and they were never exactly a great car by Ferrari standards, why not convert it. and as it will change it from a summer only weekend car, into a daily driver, seems perfect to me. There is an interview with the owner on Fully Charged who explains the history

    To be honest, taking such an iconic car and making it electric, reduces it's value considerably. I doubt it's worth 180k or if anyone would pay that amount for a fake Ferrari. 🤔 it's like taking a Patek Philippe and destroying it with a custom diamond makeover (what all the rappers are doing)

    what do you do when the Democrats keep cheating in elections, petrol become scarce due to fawning for green tech? I am all for keeping a Ferrari Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) driven as a classic. Politics may keep America energy dependant on foreign countries. I am all for old tech, for the sake of old times sake. But..... But as parts become scarce it becomes a museum piece and you fear driving it. A yesteryear Ferrari 308 will get stomped by a new Ford Mustang GT, current Corvette, or Dodge Challenger or even a sedan the Charger. At least with the projected new 1000hpTesla engine in a Ferrari will give it teeth and steal the ICE muscle cars lunch. At 1000hp you are now entering the Bugatti Chiron territory. A like EV Ferrari making 450hp will be an exillerating ride. Plus as technology improves , you can upgrade the EV engine. The old ICE Ferrari is frozen in time with its original powerplant. Back in the day, an American sport coupe kicked its ass. Tesla- fying the car you even or improve the odds of winning. I like the idea of holding onto a car as long as possible, and upgrading. Times a changing, Cochise.
