If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to own an electric vehicle, but don’t want to spend the time or the money to procure a modernized chassis, Electric GT has created something that might just appeal to your fanatical automotive fantasies.

While there are a plethora of shops that will aid in your vehicle’s transition from petrol-powered performance to that of more refined electrical efficacy, Electric GT’s V8-inspired plug-and-play EV Crate Motor affords buyers an intuitive, no-frills setup that’s been catered to a variety of classic platforms. Models like the Toyota FJ40, Porsche 911/912, and Ferrari 308/328 are an obvious inclusion within the company’s specialized conversion catalog, but with platforms like the VW Beetle, VW Bus, and the BMW 2002 joining the likes of Ford’s Mustang and Bronco, it’s clear that Electric GT has the skill to create a next-gen EV system for virtually any vehicle. For enthusiasts who have been hesitant to expose their old-school chassis to something so blasphemous, the company has allowed each crate motor to work alongside the car’s original manual transmission, as well as including all of the necessary computer controls to make its transition, and possible reversal, as easy as ever. Head to the company’s website to inquire about your own custom build, with pre-made motors starting at around $32,500.
