$10,340.00 Voltsporsche Kit
$ 570.00 Controller & ammeter upgrade to 500A
$ 900.08 Sales tax
$ 600.00 Shipping
Note: The motors and chargers drop ship, but you could save $400 if
you wanted to pick up the rest of the kit here. Lead time from
receipt of prepaid order is about 6-8 weeks for all parts. You could
get some parts sooner and start work. The battery racks and boxes
would probably take the longest.
