Everrati Automotive has built up a reputation for redefining and futureproofing automotive classic cars through the integration of cutting-edge electric vehicle powertrains and has just added a new electrified Porsche to its stable inspired by the Type 964 RSR.
Building on the company’s portfolio of redefined modern classic Porsches, this new zero emission classic pays homage to the Type 964 RSR 3.8 to create a stunning motorsport-inspired hand-built 911 with carbon-fibre body elements and a number of weight-saving measures both inside and out, bringing this classic Porsche up to date with a bespoke OEM-grade, state-of-the-art EV powertrain.
The Porsche 964 RSR 3.8 was first launched in 1993 and today is one of the rarest 964 variants, with just 51 examples of the race-ready lightweight, rear-drive, turbo wide-bodied competition car ever produced. It also coincided with Porsche reviving the famous Porsche motorsport badge which first appeared on the 1973 911 Carrera RSR and has since featured on ultimate track-focused 996, 997 and 991 models.
The car is based on an expertly restored 911 (964), which originally started life as a narrow-bodied model. The Everrati RS-inspired edition respects the lightweight, high-performance ethos of the RSR, with no rear seats and a rear roll cage, along with lightweight driver and passenger seats, covered in the world’s lowest carbon leather from Everrati partner Bridge of Weir Leather.
Externally, the car is fitted with lightweight 18-inch wheels from HRE and a completely new aero package, including larger rear spoiler inspired by the legendary 964 RSR, along with a revised front lower splitter.
At the heart of the Porsche is an OEM-grade 63kWh battery pack and battery management system. This Gen2 version offers multiple advances over Everrati’s Gen1 system, featuring new and improved cooling and a more refined version of its drive controller and software which enhances the car’s performance and efficiency. With OEM-grade high-performance electric motors deliver electrifying power to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential, it gives an emission-free range of over 200 miles and has an impressive 0-60mph acceleration time of just 3.7 seconds. The overall weight distribution of the new car also remains similar to the period car, giving that true 911 feel.
The Everrati Porsche 964 RSR features TracTive suspension, a premium, electronically controlled active and adaptive suspension system which offers multiple settings designed to optimize and enhance driving dynamics, comfort and performance, whether you’re driving the car on the road or track. Add an Apple CarPlay and AC and DC Fast charging into the mix, and this stunning new electrified 964 RSR is well equipped for both local driving and longer touring journeys.
Everrati Founder and CEO, Justin Lunny, commented:
“This exciting new addition to our range of redefined and electrified 911s is without doubt the most driver-focused yet. Paying homage to a legendary model from three decades ago, our new ‘RSR’ gets pulses racing with a host of lightweight enhancements, resulting in an unrivalled experience that combines the best of classic design with modern, zero-emission, performance.
“Like all our models, it features hand-built craftsmanship, with OEM-grade engineering processes, futureproofed via a state-of-the-art electric powertrain. We are committed to preserving the legacy of iconic vehicles while advancing the transition to sustainable luxury mobility. Our expertise in redefined Porsches positions us as the go-to international creator of redefined 911s and iconic cars.”
As with all 964-based variants in its range, the new model will be built for an international market by Everrati’s production partners, Aria Group, based in Irvine, California. It has however been designed and developed at Everrati’s global headquarters in Oxfordshire and will join the company’s portfolio of electric versions of the Porsche 911 (964) Coupe, Targa, Cabriolet, G-Series based ST-inspired edition, Range Rover Classic, Land Rover Defender, Land Rover Series, Ford GT40 and Mercedes-Benz W113 SL ‘Pagoda’.
