First Drive: This Reimagined Electric Porsche 911

UK-based Everrati’s first Porsche 964 restomod EV built stateside features 500 HP and taut suspension

Few automotive tribes are as cultish as air-cooled Porsche fanatics. Their emotional attachment to the analog peculiarities of the 911 model—the distinctive whir of the flat-six valvetrain, the distinctly oily aromas, the uncannily light and accurate steering— this is the stuff of obsession. Thus, it is with great controversy that Everrati Automotive not only elects to pluck those engines and modify these icons, but to fundamentally redefine them through electrification.

The UK-based firm is no stranger to messing with sacred cows: Everrati gives its restomod treatment to classic Land Rovers, Mercedes-Benz examples, and a handful of bespoke one-offs including vintage Aston Martins and Jaguars. But the specimen I tested in Southern California, a 964 generation of 911 (the series made from 1988 through 1994) finished in Miami Blue, is the first Everrati to be built outside of the UK by Aria Group in Irvine, Calif. This initial stateside build required the Everrati team to oversee the EV drivetrain installation alongside Aria personnel, the latter handling the chassis and carbon-fiber bodywork.

Apart from some bodywork accents, a unique ducktail spoiler, and the car’s lack of a tailpipe, the EV reimagining of the 911 looks nearly identical to its six-cylinder counterpart. Inside, a few telltale signs betray its electron-intensive power supply: an Everrati-branded power-flow gauge in place of the traditional tachometer, discreetly embedded EV-related instruments, a power button against the dash panel, and a one-off machined shifter instead of Porsche’s conventional leather-wrapped gear-change lever.
