Everrati, British specialists in electrifying automotive icons, has announced a partnership with Aria Group, experts in low-volume specialist manufacturing and composites, in an effort to meet increasing US demand for the company’s electrified Porsche 911.
The Porsche 911 is one of several classics that have been electrified by Everrati, which also include the Land Rover Series IIA, Mercedes-Benz SL Pagoda, and the Ford GT40 (MkII).
Each classic vehicle is upgraded using Everrati’s industry-leading and in-house developed OEM-standard powertrains and has led to significant demand across the globe.
This latest partnership with Aria Group – which comes on the heels of the establishment of Everrati North America in Calabasas, California – is intended to help meet increasing demand, particularly in the United States, for the Porsche 911.
The redefined Porsche 911 range by Everrati consists of Coupe, Targa, and Cabriolet in narrow body, wide body, and officially licenced Gulf Editions.
The signature wide body edition features a 500bhp, 500Nm EV powertrain with high power battery pack, and is capable of delivering an electric driving range of up to 320-kilometres with an acceleration of 0-100km/h in under 4 seconds.
“Demand for our electrified icons, such as the Signature edition – based on the Porsche 911 (964) – is surging globally, but particularly in California where our customer base of sustainability-conscious Millennials and Gen-Z’s is growing very quickly indeed,” said Justin Lunny, Everrati founder and CEO.
“These discerning buyers want the look of an icon but would never consider ICE. For them, EV is the only way to go.
