New Everrati RSR swaps 3.8-litre flat-six for fully-electric

Published: 03 January 2024 Updated: 03 January 2024

► Based on 1993 Type 964 RSR 3.8
► New aero and lightweighting
► Everrati says 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds
 

You’re looking at Everrati’s latest creation, a stunning homage to the Porsche 964 RSR. As you’d expect from Everrati, this 911 swaps out a 3.8-litre flat-six for an all-electric powertrain – but the car is actually based on a standard 964. Don’t worry, none of the original 51 964 RSRs were harmed in the making of this new EV. 

‘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,’ said Everrati founder and CEO Justin Lunny.

‘Like all our models, it features hand-built craftsmanship, with OEM-grade engineering processes, futureproofed via a state-of-the-art electric powertrain.’

It looks good! 

Everrati used a narrow-bodied, stock 964 as a base, but it’s added extra bits of aero furniture to give it a more authentic RSR look. The front splitter is lower, while the rear spoiler larger and designed to ape the original racer. All the new bodywork has been hand-built in carbonfibre to keep things lightweight – good for detail, not so good for price. 

There are changes inside too; Everrati has ripped out the rear seats, added a roll cage, and swapped out the passenger and driver seats for more lightweight units. The whole thing runs on 18-inch alloys from HRE. 

What about the powertrain?

Everrati has slipped in a 63kWh battery pack which includes second-generation tech. Improvements include improved cooling, and better efficiency over the previous iteration. No power figure has been given, but range should top a little over 200 miles, while a 0-60mph dash will take 3.7 seconds. 

Despite its EV powertrain, Everrati says weight distribution is ‘similar’ to the period car, while an active suspension system also aims to keep dynamics respectable. 

Like the other Everatti creations, the whole thing will be built by Aria Group in Irvine, California.
