Fed up with paying for gas? Why not just turn your car into an EV?

That’s exactly what Ken Watkins did with an NA Maita back in 2012, the last year the original Tesla Roadster was offered and when gas prices started hitting the $4 mark.

So how did he do it? We covered the story of this homebrewed electric Miata back in the June 2012 issue of Grassroots Motorsports, which you can read now by subscribing to GRM+ today.
