This Electric Porsche 911 Is Inspired By An Ultra-Rare 1970 Version
This first conversion on a Type G base for Everrati abandons the flat-six for a powerful electric propulsion of 440 hp.
The Everrati firm has already made a name for itself in retrofitting, particularly on the illustrious Porsche model. But then she limited herself to a 964 generation base (that of 1989-1994). Here, she worked on another version of the coupé, the 911 ST dating from 1970. Finally, she is inspired by it, because it is based on the next generation “G” from 1973. Because the light version close to the competition is very rare, produced in only 24 copies.
The Everfatti retrofit respects the look of the original model. Externally, nothing suggests that it is an electric car. In addition, the vehicle is restored in partnership with the American specialist RS Werk, leaving however betray the change via the absence of exhaust.
Because the vintage envelope hides the new boosted propulsion of 440 hp, replacing the famous flat-six of 247 hp. With an identical weight and distribution (but with a limited-slip differential), the engine therefore sends stronger. It requires less than 4 seconds to reach 100 km/h, against 5.5 s for the original.
Another driving difference is that regenerative braking is standard, as is electric steering. Everrati, however, leaves the choice of the adaptive suspension optional. Too much modernity would shock the purist.

Modernity on board the 911 Everrati
The 62 kWh battery would allow a range of around 320 km according to the English firm, with a rapid recharge of unknown power. For a more modern experience of this electric Porsche 911 ST, the interior is adorned with heated seats, air conditioning as well as GPS navigation, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay. Too bad, we don’t yet have a photo to illustrate it, nor an interior view.
Everrati invoice 290,000 pounds (€328,000) for this retrofit, including the price of the original model. yes it is the price of two Porsche Taycan Turbo, or two current 911 GTS. And so as not to hurt the price in the event of resale, the (re) conversion from electric to thermal propulsion remains possible. Phew!
