What's all this about?

The Oxfordshire-based classic EV specialist Everrati has just unveiled its latest creation, a fully-electric wide-body version of Porscheís 911 964 cabriolet from the early nineties. The company already produces other electrified versions of the originally-air-cooled 964 including a coupť, targa and cabriolet in narrow- and wide-bodied form, but hasnít built a wide-bodied turbo-style 964 cabriolet until now.

Hold on, the 964 Turbo wasnít sold in cabrio form...

Thatís correct, which means that Everratiís new creation is based on the relatively rare 964 Carrera 2 Cabrio turbo-look, which was a mechanically standard two-wheel drive 911 convertible with the wider flared wheel arches of the Turbo.

So what's powering it?

Everratiís 964 Cabrio powered by a 62kWh battery pack sending a choice of either 446 or 507hp to the rear wheels enabling it to dash from 0-60mph in under four seconds which makes it more powerful and considerably quicker than an old 964 Carrera 2. That battery gives it a range of around 200 miles.

Any more engineering work?

The company hasnít gone into a great deal of detail about it, but the occasionally alarming handling of the old 911 caused by the engine being slung out far to the rear ought to have been at least partly tamed by the ďoptimisation of weight distributionĒ. The chassis response has been improved too, the company says, and thereís a fully adjustable suspension system to suit the driverís mood. Everything about the Everrati 911 is reversible, incidentally, so itíll be possible to return all conversions to their original spec if desired in the future.

What's it like inside?

Everrati hasnít particularly gone into that, but, if its other electric wide-body 964 is anything to go by, thereíll be heated seats, an uprated heating and air-conditioning system, navigation, a DAB radio, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.

Anything else of note?

While Everrati will build the 964 wide-body cabriolet in the UK, the firm has a partnership with another small car-maker in the United States, Aria, which is based in California. This will allow the Everrati 964 to be built on both sides of the Atlantic. The 964 wide-body cabriolet joins Everratiís line-up which includes more 964-based conversions as well electric versions of the ďPagodaĒ Mercedes SL from the sixties, Series II Land Rover and an officially-licenced GT40.

So go on, how much?

The company hasnít said, but because most of Everratiís builds are bespoke projects prices canít be gauged with too much certainty. Based on the pricing for its wide-bodied 911 coupť though, expect something starting somewhere around the £250,000 mark. Well you didnít think itíd be second-hand Boxster money, did you?
