Was invited to come check out Volkwagen’s EV platform while I’m here in Germany. They went through all the technicals on their current platforms and I learned some information about their upcoming ID family as well before I got to take one of their cars out on the autobahn and drive it to its top speed! Their offices seemed super cool and they even had a bunch of Nerf guns lying around.GlennmossModeratorJanuary 13, 2019 at 12:16 pmPost count: 328GlennmossModeratorJanuary 13, 2019 at 11:14 amPost count: 328GlennmossModeratorDecember 12, 2018 at 1:01 pmPost count: 328GlennmossModeratorDecember 12, 2018 at 12:55 pmPost count: 328GlennmossModeratorDecember 12, 2018 at 12:39 pmPost count: 328
This was my inspiration earlier in the year. Cole’s post on those campers reminded me of this.

Haha I wish! but I doubt they’d go for that… especially since it’s technology that they haven’t even released yet. The motor that they’ve been talking about is from the E-Golf and the subsystems for that doesn’t look as adaptable to a classic body.
I’m thinking about using this Double A arm rear suspension from Imohr that would allow us to have more freedom with the transmission placement and looks similar to what VW is using for their new chassisGlennmossModeratorNovember 28, 2018 at 1:03 pmPost count: 328
That’s exactly what we have been developing. We still would need the independent rear suspension to locate that rear axle. Would you recommend using a later vw chassis or something more expensive like a mendola suspension or similar. I’m looking at buying a 69 pan for my bug that we can turn into a rolling chassis.
