Electric Porche Club

Electric Porche Club logo

 The Electric Porsche Club's purpose is to design and study alternative power systems for automobiles. Our major project was started 2 years ago: We have converted a donated 1977 Porsche 911 into electric car who's primary power comes from capacitors.

We are currently in the design phase for our second major step: adding lithium based power cells to the Porsche: thereby creating a hybrid capacitor/battery system which we hope to be more efficient than either power storage system could be on its own.

The club's work is very heavily focused on the interdisciplinary cooperation between EEs and MEs.
