Everatti is doing big things in the name of electric vehicles, especially with this Porsche 911. The automotive restoration company focuses on “electrifying icons,” like the 911, Land Rover, and other classics. Everatti offers the 964 in three fully customizable varieties: the Coupé, Targa, and Gulf Signature Edition.
What is Everatti doing with the Porsche 911 EV?
“We expertly upgrade cars from burning fossil fuel into beautiful electric versions of themselves,” Justin Lunny, Everatti Founder, and CEO said. The company believes that the future of travel relies on electric cars, and every vehicle produced is a step toward that.
Everatti calls moving from a combustion engine to an electric drive train a “sympathetic, almost surgical” process. Also, the process is completely reversible. The company says that the 911 should retain its value. This is where the 964 Porsche 911 comes into play. As one of the most iconic cars, Porsche offered 964 in the Coupé, Targa, and Cabriolet body designs. Nevertheless, the coolest one is the Porsche 911 (964) Gulf Signature Edition.
The Everatti Porsche 911 (964) Coupe or Targa
The process starts with a donor car. Everatti or the customer can provide this. For the Porsche 911 (964) specifically, both the “Pure” narrow-body or “Signature” wide-body are available. Everatti starts with a complete restoration of the nuts and bolts but leaves the original integrity and architecture.
The 911 comes equipped with a 53kWh battery pack and a purpose-built differential. It gets a regenerative braking system like most modern EVs. Plus, the Porsche will get other modern upgrades as necessary. All models get special paint, custom interior bits, and a Cat 5 alarm and tracker. There are a lot of optional changes and upgrades depending on preference.
Pure / Signature, Signature with Performance Package, plus the Gulf Signature Edition
For the Pure / Signature option, the 0-60 mph time is 4.5 seconds. The Porsche 911 gets 44 bhp and has a range of over 180 miles. Buyers can use either AC and DC Fast Charging to charge. The Signature with Performance Package has a 0-60 time of under four seconds. It gets 500 bhp and has a slightly shorter range of 150 miles.
The Gulf Signature Edition comes in two varieties. The first is the signature wide body with an optional performance pack. The current emissions before the transformation are 3,099 kg C02 per annum. After, the emissions are zero. The 0-60 mph time goes from 5.5 seconds (manual) or 6.2 seconds (Tiptronic) option down to under four seconds.
The Gulf Signature Edition gets 500 bhp up from 247 hp. The range gets cut from 345 miles to around 150 miles, but it makes up for it. However, refuel costs go down from an estimated $131.57 to $11.36 for a recharge.
Nevertheless, the Everatti Porsche 911 (964) electric vehicle is ahead of the curve. If you are interested in taking a classic 911 combustion engine to an electric drive train, look no further. If these are the first examples the brand offers, the later designs are going to be ridiculous. Don’t overlook the Everatti Land Rover Series IIA, either.
