Everrati reveals 500bhp electric Porsche 911 Cabriolet

The ‘Redefined’ Porsche 911 Wide Body Cabriolet adds to Everatti’s growing number of electrified classics

There are a few companies that can transform classic cars into EVs these days, but Oxfordshire-based Everrati is the first one to turn its attention to the Porsche 911 Cabriolet. Everrati says it has worked to preserve the original character of the 911 drop-top through the “optimisation of weight distribution, chassis response and the performance of the original”.

Based on the 964 generation of the 911, the official name of Everrati’s new creation (due to Porsche’s strict naming rights) is Redefined Porsche 911 964 Wide Body Cabriolet. Should owners wish to return their electric 911 back to stock, Everrati ensures all the modifications to each car can be reversed. 

Everrati has worked on electrifying Porsche 911s already, with the Porsche 911 Signature EV. Like that car, the Cabriolet is based on a 964 911 and pumps out over 500bhp and 500Nm of torque in its most rambunctious form (a 400bhp version is also available). Everrati claims a 0-62mph time of under four seconds, but thanks to a larger 62kWh battery, range has increased from 150 miles in the coupe to over 200 for the drop-top. In terms of recharging, Everrati says a battery top up from 10 to 100 per cent will take less than an hour. 

With the coupe, the chassis was upgraded to cope with the extra power and it’ll be the same story with the Cabriolet. Drilled and vented brakes discs, larger Brembo calipers and a new coilover suspension setup with the option of fully adjustable damping should help with keeping the electric 911 in line. 

The interior has also been overhauled, with a custom air-conditioning system, a modern Porsche infotainment system, Porsche-inspired EV gauges and new electrically adjustable seats trimmed in either leather, Alcantara or fabric upholstery.

The electric 911 Cabriolet joins several other iconic EV reimaginings in Everatti’s stable - such as the Land Rover ‘Series’ IIA, Ford GT40 and Mercedes-Benz SL ‘Pagoda’.
