Everrati Automotive Limited, a leading global technology company specialising in the redefining and futureproofing of automotive icons, today reveals its Porsche 911 (964) Wide Body Cabriolet electric vehicle (EV). It brings together open-top zero-emission motoring with iconic design. This is the first of its kind in the world and a thing of beauty.
Everrati’s latest model offers a truly unique experience and builds on the company’s previous 1991 Porsche 911 electric conversion. This new electric convertible delivers thrilling performance thanks to its state-of-the-art original equipment manufacturer (OEM)-grade EV powertrain but majors on clean air.
As large-scale manufacturers focus their resources on the production of hardtop electric vehicles, convertible EV options are scarce. Everrati is preserving the unique hood-down driving experience, offering buyers a choice beyond that of mainstream brands by combining timeless styling with the latest in EV technology.
Developed in the UK – the so-named convertible capital of Europe – the 964 Wide Body Cabriolet is capable of delivering supercar levels of roof-down performance year-round. The 964 Wide Body Cabriolet is built upon Everrati’s desire to positively contribute to reducing air pollution, allowing top-down driving to be enjoyed to the maximum.
Extensively engineered at Everrati’s global headquarters in Oxfordshire, England, the Wide Body Cabriolet, like all the company’s models, combines a full restoration with the installation of sector-leading IP blended with technology from the best Tier 1 automotive suppliers.
With more than double the output of the original Porsche 911 (964) Cabriolet on which it is based, the 964 Wide Body Cabriolet is available in 440bhp or 500bhp forms. The latter can accelerate from 0-60mph (0-97kph) in under four seconds while still offering a range of 200 miles (322km) from its 62kWh battery.
Everrati has worked meticulously to preserve the original ‘feel’ and character of the Porsche 911 (964) Cabriolet. This includes the optimisation of weight distribution, chassis response and safety, and enhancing the performance of the original to reinvigorate its soul. With its optional fully adjustable TracTive suspension system, owners can select a variety of modes to suit their mood.
The 964 Wide Body Cabriolet uses a donor chassis and body – selected for its provenance and condition – as the basis for restoration and electrification. At the core of Everrati’s engineering philosophy is the ability to fully reverse all modifications. This allows owners to revert the car to its original specification, if desired, and to preserve provenance into the future.
Justin Lunny, Everrati CEO and founder, said: “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.
“Arriving at a time where demand for our electrified classics has never been higher, the 964 Wide Body Cabriolet will form a key part of our product offering as we further ramp up global production in partnership with Aria Group.”
Earlier this year Everrati announced it was launching Everrati Advanced Technologies (EAT). This provides expert engineering and class-leading electric vehicle integration solutions. The new division enables commercial business-to-business (B2B) clients to rapidly bring their specialist and luxury electric vehicles to life.
