The Ford GT40 remains the most iconic race car in American history, if not the world. The 2019 blockbuster Ford vs Ferrari has only served to raise the profile of the vehicle, as has Ford’s modern-day GT supercar. Now, Everrati — known for their all-electric Porsche 911 builds — is teaming up with Superformance, the leader in GT40 continuation cars, on an all-electric GT40 continuation car that will take the mid-century icon into the future.
The Everrati x Superformance Electric GT40 mates a Superperformance chassis that’s nearly indistinguishable from the original ‘60s car with Everrati’s advanced EV powertrain. Everatti is taking careful consideration when it comes to things like battery location and weight distribution in order to keep the character of the new car as close to the original as possible but with improved performance thanks to the electric platform and modern engineering. The car is under development, with a prototype chassis currently being adapted to work with Everrati’s advanced electric propulsion systems. No power numbers have been released as of yet, but Everatti’s Signature 911 Coupe makes 500 hp and sprints to 60 mph in less than four seconds, so comparable or better numbers should be possible on the GT40. Here’s hoping that someday soon we’ll get to see an Everrati x Superformance Electric GT40 silently cruising around Le Mans.
