This wide-bodied 964-generation Porsche 911 restomod is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in less than 4 seconds and extracting 150+ miles out of its 53kWh battery pack… The burning question is why does anyone want to create a 500bhp, 500Nm electric supercar out of an iconic German classic?
Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati™) says they are a company that specialise in the ‘redefining and futureproofing’ of automotive icons through the integration of the very latest electric vehicle (EV) powertrains and technical wizardry, so maybe they’re telling the truth.
This particular car offered to customers is based upon a fully restored 1991 Porsche 911 964 featuring carbon fibre body elements and a state-of-the-art EV powertrain that replaces the old reliable flat six we all love to wax lyrical about.
It’s a long process that begins with a solid, accident-free example of a Porsche 911 (964) donor car which provides the basis for restoration and all modifications that follow. The first stage of the car’s metamorphosis was a careful disassembly back to its bare monocoque chassis. All bodywork, powertrain, and interior components were removed from the car.
Following a complete strip-down, the monocoque chassis is water-blasted back to its bare zinc coating and inspected and treated for rust prevention, if required. To ensure adherence to Everrati™’s core pillars of safety and structural integrity, the monocoque is seam-welded, strengthened, and refabricated to better-than-new standards.
Out with the old – in with the new
Carbon fibre is the new steel nowadays and the wide-body, Everrati™ replaces the steel front and rear wings and bonnet with custom-produced parts which are reinforced high strength steel to retain side impact protection for the doors.
A carbon fibre roof is also offered, along with the choice of a steel item for customers who wish to retain that vintage sunroof look. The front and rear bumpers are refitted with genuine Porsche wide body items, to which RS Cup air vents are added.
Its fast – very fast
Rapid electric propulsion is achieved by a state-of-the-art EV powertrain delivering an eye-watering 500bhp to the rear wheels that more than doubles the power output of an original 1990’s Porsche 964. The blistering sub 4 seconds 0-62mph instantly delivers 500 Nm but also achieves a respectable 150+ mile range depending on how heavy your right foot happens to be. On the plus side, a DC fast charger can be used to charge the battery from 10 per cent to 100 per cent in less than an hour, at the cost of £8.21.
Justin Lunny, Founder & CEO of Everrati Automotive Limited:
“When we launched Everrati™ in 2019, it was our mission to create the most desirable, technically advanced, sustainable, zero-emission iconic cars in the world. To fulfil that vision, and to provide discerning customers with a peerless product engineered with industry-leading technology, rigour, and attention to detail, we assembled an elite engineering team from OEM, supercar, motorsport, aerospace and EV technology backgrounds.”
“We believe that it is the very DNA of a car that makes it iconic and that such cars must be preserved for future generations – not be placed in a museum, but to drive. We take some of the world’s most beautiful and seminal cars, restore and re-engineer them, always operating with full respect for the brands that created them. Using modern engineering techniques and integrating advanced EV powertrains, we further enhance each car’s performance, yet ensuring they have a similar driving ‘feel’ with weight distribution – and overall weight – mirroring that of the original, enabling automotive icons like the Porsche 911 (964) to be reborn for the coming age of zero-emission mobility, yet with soul intact.”
The ‘Signature’ wide body will continue to undergo its full development programme with a small number of commissions available to order now for delivery in late 2021. Prices for each commission begin at £250,000 plus relevant taxes, but you’ll need to supply a donor car which isn’t cheap…
It’s a beautiful thing but sub 4 seconds… really?
