Everatti's take on the Porsche 911 cabriolet as an EV comes with 493 hp.
The Porsche Taycan is undeniably good, but we're still waiting for a full-blown modern electric Porsche 911. Until that day comes, fans will have to look elsewhere to get their thrills. Everatti, a British company specializing in electrifying classic sports cars, might have the perfect answer for fans of older 911 cars. It has started electrifying the timeless Porsche 964, and the package feels absolutely seamless.
We've covered Everatti's previous projects, including classic Mercedes-Benz cars and even a few old-school Land Rovers, but this has to be its most exciting project yet and should get Porsche fans buzzing.
Everatti's Porsche 911 964 widebody cabriolet is the first of its kind anywhere in the world and combines zero-emission fun with timeless style. Everatti has replaced the old air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine with an OEM-spec electric powertrain that delivers near supercar performance levels.
The old engine produced approximately 247 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque, and the new motor churns out about 493 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. That's significantly more than the 379 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque you get in a standard 2022 911 Carrera.
Everatti claims that its 493-hp car can accelerate to 60 mph in under four seconds and, thanks to a 62-kWh battery, has a range of up to 200 miles.
The best part of the conversion is that it is fully reversible and closely maintains the overall weight and weight distribution of the original car. This CAD-designed conversion features regenerative braking, a brand new custom differential, and modern interior features such as heated front seats, navigation, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and a custom five-gauge cluster, along with a stunning interior.
"We are delighted to be expanding our product offering with a world-first in the form of our Porsche 911 (964) Wide Body Cabriolet. Everrati prides itself on enhancing the original 'feel' and character of iconic cars, and the pure open-top driving experience of the 964 Cabriolet, now combined with state-of-the-art EV power, means our customers can enjoy convertible thrills in truly sustainable, 21-century style. At present, the options open to buyers in the convertible EV market are extremely scarce, and we are proud to have created a cutting-edge convertible EV above and beyond what mainstream manufacturers are delivering," said Founder and CEO of Everrati, Justin Lunny.
Everrati's order books are now open, and if you want to know the cost of this conversion, you'd best pop them an email.
