Singer has released the details pertaining to what may be the best Porsche 911 restoration project I've seen yet. Thanks to the help of Williams Advanced Engineering, that is.
Commissioned by Scott Blattner, he was looking to take a 1990 Porsche 911 and convert it into something better. The goal was simple, take a 911 and boost power while cutting weight.
The first step toward this was the 4.0-liter flat-6 engine modified to output more power. Singer designed a new, more aerodynamic underbody, and used a combination of materials like magnesium, carbon fiber, and titanium to reinforce it while keeping a low weight. When it was said and done, the final curb weight was 2,180 pounds and pushing 500 horsepower. A lightweight suspension design was also added to improve the suspension geometry and add adjustability.
What Singer and Williams didn't build themselves, they acquired from other companies who are the best at what they do. Forged magnesium Fuchs-style 18-inch wheels came from BBS, lightweight monobloc calipers and carbon composite rotors came from Brembo, and Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires from Michelin.
This won't be the only model in existence either, fortunately. Singer intends to build 75 more of these 911s with Williams handling production in Oxfordshire, England. No word as to the expected price of this rare creation.
