This is a 500 hp fully electric Porsche 964
Porsche set the record, claiming its 911 may be one of the last cars in the world to be electrified. But that doesn’t prevent anyone from proving otherwise unofficially.
The latest “retro sports car with inserted batteries” is the Everrati Signature Wide Body. It’s a Porsche 964-Gen 911 from the early nineties with 500 hp electricity that replaces its traditional six-flat engine.
Everrati insists that all of this has been done with the greatest respect. “With modern technical techniques and the integration of advanced EV drives, we are further improving the performance of every car,” says Everrati’s founder and CEO. “At the same time, we make sure that they have a similar driving experience, with the weight distribution – and the total weight – being the same as the original. This means that automobile icons such as the Porsche 911 (964) can be reborn for the coming age of emission-free mobility without the soul being intact. “
Which all sounds very good, although it does add to the impression that the 964 is the least-loved 911 generation – they have already been sacrificed in Singer’s reimagination process and, given Everrati’s plans for the Signature to be more than an isolated case, a few more are being fundamentally changed here.
While it is key, we point out that heart transplantation is reversible. If you have loft space and can’t stand putting your 964’s scalloped motor and gearbox on eBay, they can always be put back in if you decide electricity just doesn’t work for you.
In its new pluggable form, the Signature is apparently lighter than a series 964, an achievement that was achieved with the help of new carbon fiber plates. The rear wheels alone put out 500 horsepower and 369 lb ft of the electric motor, which are more like a brand new 992 GT3 and require a vastly improved Brembo braking system, albeit with built-in regeneration capabilities. The driver chooses how strong the energy recovery is and the Signature can also be driven as a single-pedal car if desired.
The battery has an output of 53 kWh and a range of more than 150 miles. However, expect the range to drop if you frequently explore the time from 0 to 62 km / h in four seconds. We’ve learned that a 10 to 100 percent charge with a fast DC charger can take an hour.
Every car Everrati makes is an individual commission with a starting price of £ 250,000. Outstanding? Or sacrilege?
