The other day it was ICON’s 1949 Mercury, which still rocks the boat. Here comes another EV converted troublemaker: Dylan Coleman’s 1977 Porsche 911 Coupe. “The setup of the E-RWB makes 563ewhp (electric wheel horsepower), which is comparable to a car making 700hp at the crank.”

I think Porsche purists will love it. Not.

Electromobility has never been so beautiful before.

“The powertrain is all-modern and was a co-engineering exercise between ICON and Stealth EV. The dual electric motor, transmission-less design provides 470 lb-ft of freight-train torque and the equivalent of 400 horsepower, with no shifts all the way up to the Merc’s 120 MPH top speed. A full Tesla Performance 85kWh battery array is strategically fit throughout the vehicle for exceptional weight balance. It is capable of an estimated 150- to 200-mile range and has 1.5-hour full recharge capability.“

"Chosen from hundreds of concept cars produced between 1932 and the present day, Dream Cars (May 21 - September 07, 2014) presents some of the world's most breathtaking concept cars built between 1934 and 2001. Like most concept cars, those on display were never intended for production. Imagine an egg-shaped electric car, an exterior surface made of flexible fabric, or a jet fighter rolling down the highway – all of these were among the ideas dreamed up by designers and are featured in these galleries."

Well, if you are still looking for a reason to go on vacation to Atlanta – what about this brilliant Motorkultur exhibition?
