Rock West Racing Announces the Launch of the RW Speedster Electric
Rock West Racing is entering the electric vehicle market with a tribute to the 50s classic Speedster that will run on battery power. This component car, based on the company’s RW Speedster, is engineered to accommodate a battery conversion kit designed and developed by EV West.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2015 – Rock West Racing announces the launch this month of its first component car kit designed specifically for alternative power, the RW Speedster Electric. The company currently offers other component cars that are tributes to classics such the Speedster, Spyder, RSK and GTS.

The early Sixties were a truly remarkable time for road-course racing. After Carroll Shelby transformed his 289 Cobra from a street fighter into a track champion, Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov counter-punched with the Grand Sport version of the Sting Ray. And yet another world-class race car entered the fray: the Porsche 904.
Debuting in late ’63 for the upcoming season as a successor to the 718, it raced in both ’64 and ’65. Even though it didn’t gain quite the notoriety and longevity of either the Cobra or Grand Sport, it was a force to be reckoned with, doing far more with less, and winning on a number of race tracks in the FIA-GT class.
Instead of a big V-8, the 904 initially ran an overachieving, four-cam flat four producing a then-remarkable 196 horses. Thus equipped, a 904 won overall at the Targa Florio and went on to demonstrate remarkable durability throughout its racing career, almost always finishing, if not taking First place. Later models were fitted with a 911’s flat six, and a few factory race cars even had a flat eight. Continue reading Rock West GTS
