Electrifying Nostalgic Porsches, VW Beetles, VW Microbuses…

How does one electrify a classic car?

David Benardo and Bonnie Rodgers, co-founders of Zelectric Motors, specialize in rebuilding and electrifying the 1958-1967 Volkswagen Beetle, Split-Window VW Microbus, 1960s Karmann Ghia, and 1973-74 VW Things.  I recently went on a ride in their latest conversion, a 1973 Porsche 911 S Targa, and knew I had to have them on the show.

Follow their journey from advertising executives to conversion wizards.  This dynamic duo followed their passion for vintage cars and high tech and ended up creating a business and yet another career.  Learn about how it all came to be, with insights and how to’s.
