Weight and Balance for Converting a 1977 Porsche 911 to Electric Power

I did 3 different cases: A car with 12 Exide Orbital XCD batteries, a car with 24 Exide Orbital XCD batteries, and a car with lithium batteries. The lithium car would be much more expensive. I did this exercise for 2 reasons: To see how much weight the car would gain or lose, and to see how much the front axle / rear axle weight balance would change. Since a Porsche 911 is already tail heavy and prone to oversteer, shifting the weight ratio rearward is to be avoided. Please note many of the weights are approximate estimates. The lithium car also lists some weights for racing parts.
