The project involves designing and developing a proper battery pack for the floor of a 1956 Porsche 356 Speedster. The original-style floor pans will be eliminated, and the battery pack will act as a floor.

The Company has been restoring and manufacturing classic Porsches new parts, chassis and full body in the USA and Canada since the late 1980’s, and Europe in 2013. This venture aims to recreate parts and kits for the 911, 914, and 356 using pristine panels. More information about their past and vision is available upon request contact@fuel2electric.com

Project Overview
The project involves designing and developing a proper battery pack for the floor of a 1956 Porsche 356 Speedster. The original-style floor pans will be eliminated, and the battery pack will act as a floor. The 35-40kWh battery pack must include brand-new battery cells and a cooling system. It must provide 480 volts and a maximum 450A peak in current demand.

For the time being, this is a one-off proof of concept, although they foresee a reasonable demand of 10 units across 5 years. The client wants to own the design of the battery pack.

They are looking for premium fabrication services from a vendor within the US or Canada. They have the entire car in CAD files and will provide all the files necessary so the chassis should not be required to initiate the development of the battery pack.

The other EV components are the IDM 190 Cascadia motor, AEM VCU and BMS controller, and engine cradle. They have already bench-tested the motor and hooked up all the wiring. The throttle pedal is hooked up and working. 

The electric 356 Speedster will be used in the city. With a curb weight of 1,900lbs. it is expected to have 200 miles of range, a top speed of 100mph, and a charging time of 4-7 hours. See the Specification tab for more details.

They plan to use stock front and rear suspension from a 1968 911. They have their drive shafts chosen and just need to modify them for installation.


Vendors interested should provide:

1. An outline of their company and products, as well as capabilities to provide warranty coverage.
2. An initial statement describing their approach to meeting the requirements outlined in this Request For Quote (RFQ).
3. Technical specifications of the proposed battery systems, emphasizing charge times, estimated range, dimensions, and integration methodology specific to the 356 Speedster’s spatial constraints.
4. A portfolio of past projects or products that illustrates the vendor's experience and expertise in the electric conversion sector.
5. A proposed methodology and timeline for the conversion of one unit.
6. Warranty, maintenance, and support plans for the supplied products.


Evaluation Criteria

Submissions will be assessed based on the following criteria:
1. The technical adequacy of the battery pack and the electric motor for the specified applications.
2. The vendor's experience, reputation, and previous work in similar projects.
3. The balance between cost and value provided within the proposal.
4. Proposed warranty conditions.


Deadline for Submissions

The final detailed proposals should be submitted by June 10th.
We anticipate engaging in further discussions with potential suppliers before and after the initial review to clarify details and negotiate terms before making a final decision.
