New Everrati 911 ST: lightweight icon revived with 440bhp electric restomod
Everatti has expanded its range of classic electric Porsche conversions with a new 911 ST, built as a ground-up restoration
There’s no shortage of classic Porsche 911 restomods on the market in 2023, but Oxfordshire firm Everrati has carved its own niche with an ever-expanding portfolio of hand-built EV offerings; the latest of which is a 911 ST-inspired machine with roots in the G-Series era.
The ST joins Everrati’s 964 coupe, Targa and Cabriolet variants as a ground-up restoration centred around a pure electric powertrain, comprising a 62kWh battery pack and a 440bhp electric motor at the rear. This delivers drive through a limited-slip differential and launches the ST from 0-62mph in 4sec, a shade quicker than a modern 992 Carrera. Over 200 miles of range should be possible, but expect that figure to rapidly decline when making use of all that power.
Thankfully, the Everrati isn’t built by chopping up original 911 STs, of which just a handful were built as pared back road racers from 1970 until the following year. The EV uses a restored G-Series steel shell at its core, with an ST-inspired body and lightweight measures to evoke the spirit of the classic. The firm claims that it has targeted comparable weight figures to the 1970 ST, but with a steel chassis and a beefy battery and motor setup, it’s unlikely to get near the sub-1000kg original.
Besides the powertrain, the Everrati’s tech suite has been upgraded with air conditioning, power steering and an infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay. Given that 911s of the period weren’t designed to withstand the instant hit of electric power offered by the Everrati, the chassis has been upgraded with modern TracTrive suspension with adaptive dampers, with varying levels of stiffness controlled by the driver.
The electric 911 ST has been designed and developed in-house at Everrati’s Oxfordshire base, and will be sold alongside the firm’s other classic EV conversions – some of which are built in California for the US market.
