Tell us about your backgrounds in engineering

[Ryan Worthington} I always worked in design engineering and worked with TFL doing maintenance. However, my passion is in automotive. So, with the emerging market of EVs and trying to keep great cars on the road, I was excited to join Everrati and design cars. It’s great to be a part of every process from feasibility all the way to finished product and getting to drive the cars.

How do you find it working on the classic cars?

[MIKE KERR] It can be difficult, as we cannot put too much weight in the car and putting a lot of power into a classic car can be hard. All our cars can be converted back into a combustion engine if needed, as people like to keep the value of the power train.

How do you justify converting these classic cars into EVS?

[MIKE KERR] We are cautious to keep the original chassis of the car. We maintain the characteristics of the vehicle dynamics, the weight distribution and the overall weight of the vehicle. Its very easy to throw lots of battery packs into the car, but that will destroy the weight distribution of the car. You mentioned the things you may lose from the engine like the noise and visceral experience. The torque delivery on an EV is very different to a combustion engine. We do have augmented sound in our Porsche, which gives a visceral engagement and a noise that replicates the sound of the original vehicle. With the GT40 we are hoping to take it further.

Please give us a run through of the cars you have converted so far.

[MIKE KERR] The Porsche 964 came from when I imported one for myself which I still have today. A lot of the feel of the converted 964 came from my own experiences of my own. We are defining a process where we fully test and fully verify the design of the products before even starting the production of a customer car. We then looked at the Land Rover Series II, an iconic four by four. We have been developing this alongside our GT40. Surprisingly, they share a lot of architecture e.g., the charging- much of the connections of the EV power train are shared.

Who is your target market?

[MIKE KERR] The Porsche we have seen for maybe individual that would use it as a weekend car, but of course it can also be used daily. The Series II, which may be a more everyday car, will provide a lot of new market for us.
[DARREN] Yes, we have also recently formed a partnership with Everrati and offer finance to your customers as a part of working to a more sustainable future.
