Unfortunately, I let the battery die on my 2017 Evora 400. (Away from it to long.

(I replaced it with an AC Delco 91 PS).

I haven’t tried yet but am I wrong to think the original battery isn’t sealed and I might be able open it up and bring it back to life??

Any thoughts or has anyone been successful?

Just be happy with the new battery. Once a lead acid battery (sealed or otherwise) has been shorted or discharged too often and too deeply, it can never be reliable again. It might get you started but it will leave you stranded at some point in the not too distant future. Batteries are cheap. They're not worth second guessing especially since these cars don't take kindly to low voltage conditions.

If you have a non critical use for it you can try conditioning it using an appropriate charger but even that can be difficult.
