Electric Porsche 912 With Tesla Motor (Video + Interview)

August 31st, 2019 | by Jake Richardson

The Porsche 912 and 911 are classic cars some people go nuts over -- the attachment may seem irrational, but it’s still quite real. (The same is true of a number of different Porsche models.) The fact that a 1968 912 can be converted to all-electric status with a Tesla motor only makes it that much sweeter. The look and feel are still Porsche, but the tech is more powerful and is quieter. Also, since it runs on electricity, polluting fossil fuels can be avoided


The Tesla Model 3 From A Female European Perspective

August 31st, 2019 | by Jake Richardson

Traditionally, the domain of cars has been mostly one of males, guys, men, dudes, hombres, etc. Guys working on cars was, and perhaps remains, a familiar enough scenario that it's assumed this kind of mechanical interest and ability is masculine

222,000 Miles In A Tesla Model S (Video + Interview)

August 18th, 2019 | by Jake Richardson

When you see a video about an electric vehicle -- in this case a Tesla Model S -- that has been driven well over 200,000 miles and could go another 200,000 or farther, it helps to refute anti-EV misinformation. It also points to a future where EV owners can potentially drive their vehicles farther and with lower ownership costs than if they had a gas-powered car or truck

July 9th, 2019 | by Jake Richardson

Eric Way and his friend Alex Venz drove their electric cars from the LA area to Las Vegas and back after a problematic New York Times article was published about driving a Chevy Bolt on this same trip. Eric owns and drives a Chevy Bolt and Alex has a Tesla Model 3. (CleanTechnica’s Kyle Field also just completed this trip in his Model 3 to demonstrate the ease of making the round trip journey.)
