Project Summary Video

I shot a short video this week for Jack Rickard and EVTV.ME that covers the year long build-out of the PorschEV in a seven and a half minute segment. Here's Jack's show of May 27, 2016. My segment starts at the 6:57 mark.

Jack's explanation of the EV adoption curve and his new Chademo fast charge station is very interesting, so I'd encourage you to watch the whole thing. All of his shows are archived, so you can go back and watch them here.

If you'd rather just watch the PorschEV segment, it's available below:

I plan to produce a live walk-around and road test video soon, so stay tuned ...

Pulling It All Together

There have been separate blogs for each of my Electric Vehicle projects, and it seems like a good time to pull them all together in one place, along with the commercial EV's that have also been in the mix. So this page, Adventures in EV Land, will be the source for news and information for all of the family EV's going forward. All the individual project pages are linked at the top of the page.

The first news item regards the Second Annual Cedar Park High School Cross Country Car & Motorcycle Show held May 21, 2016. The show was organized by my friend Robert Juarez, who did all the fabrication, body, and paint work on both the evTD and the PorschEV, and benefited the Cedar Park HS Cross Country Team. It was an honor to show both cars, and a thrill to win "Best in Class" for the evTD. Truth is, mine were the only entries in the EV class, so how could I lose?

Here is a sampling of the other cars in the show:
