Barn Find of the century? (very First Porsche, 1898 Egger-Lohner AKA P1)

First Porsche uncovered after 112 years of hiding

"Powered by a 3-hp electric motor in the rear driving a 12-speed control unit, the 2,977-lb. P1 could reach 21 mph, and travel 49 miles on a charge."

Cool.

I think the interesting bits are the parts they left out:

Who had it? How the heck did they find it? How did it last all this time, "undiscovered"?

First Porsche Was Electric - please merge with earlier thread

This is kinda' fun!

World's first Porsche uncovered--and it's electric - chicagotribune.com

Quote:
At just under 3,000 pounds, the P1 weighs as much as your modern compact sedan, but is nearly a third the length. Its top speed is 21 miles an hour, while cruising speed is a more moderate 15 mph. Its 49-mile range is impressive considering many modern electric cars can only manage about 80 to 100 miles.

Porsche raced his car in 1899 in a 24-mile, all-electric competition and crossed the finish line with three passengers 18 minutes ahead of his nearest competitor.

This version was parked in a warehouse in 1902 and has sat there untouched ever since. It will now become a permanent part of the Porsche display at its museum.

Everyone and their brother made an ev back in the day as internal and external combustion engines had their draw backs.

FYI, somewhere in MD in a warehouse is one of the first bucket trucks by baker equipment. They parked it as newer vehicles replaced it and after a while decided to keep it as it maybe valuable one day.
