Electric 'crate motor' turns any classic into an EV

A new plug-and-play 'crate motor' promises to turn essentially any car into an electric vehicle. The market for electrified classic vehicles is growing, thanks to cars like the Jaguar E-Type Zero and the Aston Martin DB5 EV that starred at the 2018 Royal Wedding. Homemade conversions with repurposed Tesla batteries are also becoming increasingly common. Swindon Powertrain wants to make it easier for low-volume manufacturers to create electric versions of classic, rare, and unique vehicles.

2020 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet spied

Porsche's fastest open-top 992-generation 911, the 2020 911 Turbo Cabriolet, has been snapped with almost no camouflage during testing. Although it still looks like a 911, the new Turbo takes Porsche's aggressive shape to new heights with a wheel and tyre package that fills the guards, and a prominent air intake in the rear haunches.
