Sacrilege Motors, a renowned performance, restoration, and electric-conversion studio, is set to reveal its first electrified Porsche 911 commission named ‘BLACKBIRD’ at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 20, 2023. Specializing in preserving the classic analog feel of Porsche 911 while introducing electric enhancements, Sacrilege Motors’ forward-thinking approach is one of a kind. The BLACKBIRD, a 1992 Porsche 911 America Roadster, is the first vehicle to undergo restoration, tuning, and electric conversion at Sacrilege Motors’ headquarters in Lakeville, CT. The triple black commission is a tribute to the supersonic Lockheed SR-71 aircraft and marks a significant milestone for Sacrilege Motors.
With an emphasis on retaining the weight distribution essential to the Porsche 911 feel, the conversion to a single-gear, all-electric powertrain aligns with Sacrilege Motors’ goal of reducing environmental impact without losing the iconic driving experience. The company’s president Bobby Singh and CEO Phil Wagenheim emphasize delivering an exhilarating yet familiar driving experience to air-cooled 911 enthusiasts. By maintaining the classic characteristics of a Porsche 911 and integrating a low-maintenance, high-performance electric powerplant, Sacrilege Motors is not only offering a glimpse of the future but also paying homage to the rich heritage of Porsche.
