Why a Corvette?
The Corvette is an American Icon. For more than 50 years it has been the example of an American super-car, yet unlike it’s Italian competitors, it is within reach of the average hard working American. New or old, the car stands out and turns heads as a classic from the day it drove off the showroom floor. And for many, purchasing the car is the beginning of the journey, with shade-tree mechanics building them, modifying them, restoring them. Putting their own sweat equity into the vehicle they love.
Fēnix Power embraces this hobbyist mechanic tradition. One of our biggest goals is to enable those that love working on their cars to bring the vehicles they love into the next generation of technology and performance. What better place to start than with the Chevrolet Corvette?
But what about how it sounds?
The LS Engines are an amazing piece of machinery, and all car enthusiasts smile when they hear one of it’s variations growl. We’re not different, we love that sound too. But what we love more is performance.
Our goal is to deliver a car that performs, and no combustion engine can deliver the instant punch that electric can. When you experience the torque, you’ll realize that like the car you just passed, the sound coming out the back doesn’t matter anymore.
Full Conversion Kits for the DIY mechanic
Fēnix Power will be building the cars for our first customers, but these builds will be the foundation for full DIY conversion kits. Initially starting with the C5, or 5th Generation Corvette, we aim to make our conversion kits universal with support for C4 and C6 soon to follow, and eventually C3 and C7.
If your beloved Corvette is starting to show it’s age and you are thinking about a re-power engine swap or rebuild, consider Fēnix Power instead.
