While Porsche touts its electric sports car concept, the Mission E, a small company is starting to convert vintage 911s into electric drive. Voitures Extravert is a Utrecht-based startup specializing in electric conversions of vintage Porsche 911s from the 1970s and ’80s.

Taking a somewhat similar approach as famed Porsche restorers and customizers Singer, Voitures Extravert takes donated cars and re-works each into better than new condition. The electric conversion process replaces the original petrol engines with electric drive capable of a range of 400 km, or about 248 miles.

The completed cars are promised to be maintenance and corrosion-free, offering the joys of driving a vintage Porsche without the worry and high cost of mechanical issues. To back up their work, Voitures Extravert offers a five-year, 100,000 km warranty and an optional care program that includes vehicle health checks and roadside assistance in Europe.

The first run of five cars for 2018 is already sold out. Voitures Extravert intends to ramp up production to 12 cars in 2019 with a goal of building three per month in 2020 and beyond.
