You can buy a classic luxury or muscle car. Or you could go green with an electric vehicle (EV) and its zero tailpipe emissions. Well, there is another option: choose a classic car for a carefully executed, high-dollar EV conversion. Whether it is a tire-melting Porsche 911 or an effortlessly elegant Aston Martin DB6, you can get one as a plug-in, fully-electric restomod. 

You can choose a classic Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce, or Porsche 911 for your high-voltage EV conversion dream car

EV conversions aren’t just for bored engineers or brave garage wizards anymore. If you have the money to devote to a classic car EV conversion, you could be driving around in a meticulously restored electric classic.

So, you love an old-school pre-964, G-Series Porsche 911, but you’re (for one reason or another) not on board with its air-cooled mill? No problem. Everrati will turn a classic 911 into a fully electric restomod, complete with up to 200 miles of range. Better yet, depending on the model, one of Everrati’s 911 EV conversions will hit 60 mph in under 3.7 seconds. Sure, a 964 RSR was fast, but not that swift. 

On the more opulent side of things, Lunaz will convert beloved British luxury and GT cars into quiet, refined EVs. For instance, Lunaz will take a classic Bentley down to the bare metal and use computer-aided design (CAD) modeling to ensure precision. Then, after a meticulous restoration, Lunaz will turn a classic Bentley into a road-going plug-in EV.

If you prefer the James Bond aesthetic, Lunaz also takes commissions on electrified Aston Martin DB6s. Not quite a DB5 with machine guns, but it is one of the coolest ways to drive electric. 

But let’s say you don’t want a European classic. Instead, you’d like an all-electric Ford Bronco or International Scout. Well, Zero Labs out of Los Angeles, California will be happy to oblige. Better yet, your charming off-roader could get over 235 miles of range with a 100 kWh battery pack. 

However, none of these options come cheap. In fact, if you want an EV conversion like one of these, you’re looking at anywhere between $200,000 and $400,000. Frankly, the only way to get a straight answer on your classic car EV conversion is to inquire.
