They re quick, quiet, and clean, but Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne isn t convinced.
It s an almost obscene concept, he told journalists at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show.
But you can t stop progress, and Electric GT has taken matters into its own hands.
The San Diego-based company partnered with engineers EV West to convert a 1978 Ferrari 308GTS to run on electricity.
They removed a fire-damaged V8, and replaced it with three motors and enough batteries to keep it going for 80 miles on a charge.
They re calling the result a 308GTE, and claim it s more powerful and better to drive than the original.
