FiskerPhillys project Tesla powered Karma
 
Hey folks as promised we have begun cutting into our Karma to power it with a modded p85 rear drive unit. While i wont have time to update much here on the forum you are welcome to follow it on Facebook. My apologies to those who arent on FB but its the easiest way for me to update.

Are you putting two telsa motor in the rear? what do you expect for torque on set up ? what is your estimate for acceleration with the current weight? are you also swapping out the batteries and inverted to a 6.6 ?

I think that's a single motor. The other enclosure is the integrated inverter, which is why the existing inverters are no longer needed and can be removed.

Amazing

flsupraguy 09-01-2018 06:53 AM

I sooo want to do this someday.

flsupraguy 12-20-2018 02:18 PM

Hows this coming along?

FiskerPhilly 12-20-2018 04:44 PM

Still plugging along. Waiting on the custom made conversion axle shafts. Being heat treated to handle the Tesla torque. Should have a bench mock up of the drivetrain soon

ewein 12-24-2018 09:39 PM

great idea and job. followed for sure. looking forward to see final end

Any updates on this project?

FiskerPhilly 02-03-2019 09:58 AM

Project Tesla-powered Fisker update. Powertrain fitted. We had to lose a section of the trunk storage compartment on the right side. However we can make the compartment larger across the center. Tons of room in the front. May keep this one ERev and do another as a full EV. Building High Voltage harnesses, still lots of CANbus software work yet to do, stay tuned. Need to clean out my uploads here no room left to post them.
Posted a couple of pics on my fb page here is a link.

nice!

She is ALIVE.... First run of our bench mockup Fisker pack, Tesla p85 running Advantics controller. So much torque, it tries to jump off the table, we had to strap it down!

I think as you progress joe, there will be pleanty of options for fiskers owner as our original cars age. I'm planning a vigil to your shop in the near future, need to know if your planning another rally to you place. maybe you sell tickets to cover the cost of hosting?

A rally maybe in some central place would be great. Fisker Philly brings his Model S powered Karma to some midwestern state like Oklahoma and all the Fisker faithful gathers at this central spot. Would be cool.

it would have to be like a major type event of some kind like Sturgis Motorcycle Rally or Dayton bike week, but we don't have the head count to make it unless the location if closure to the critical mass of owners - but worth considering?

Definitely looks like she wants to fly!!! Well done, I am wildly impressed with your engineering prowess and dedication!! Curious what the weight distribution will be once you're all done...

AWESOME!

Sounds like a good plan to me.🤔😌

Louis 06-23-2019 03:51 AM

Very interesting. I’d be keen to convert my Fisker to a full EV one day.

Joe Ferrante: AKA Fisker Philly, whats the status / any update on this Tesla powered Karma project?
Regards, Ken
