Singer's latest 911 restoration project is worth drooling over

Postado Novembro 15, 2017

The 911 has a weight of just 2,180 pounds (990 kilograms) and a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine that goes up to more than 9,000 rpm where it will find 500 ponies. Is this a recipe for disaster or nirvana?

This lovely vehicle comes from renowned 911 tuners Singer.

Singer and Williams developed this auto for wealthy Porsche collector Scott Blattner, working with a Porsche Le Mans racecar designer named Norbert Singer (no relation to California's Singer Vehicle Design) to lend the project some serious aerodynamic cred.

The tuners turned to Williams Advanced Engineering and the reimagined 911 weighs a bantamweight 990kg but packs a punch, the reworked engine using four-valve cylinder heads, titanium conrods, aluminium throttle bodies, dual oil circuits, carbon fibre intake trumpets and airbox, to rattle off a few specs.

It's a classic 911 that has gone on a serious diet thanks to the extensive use of lightweight materials like carbon fibre, titanium, aluminum, and magnesium, and we love it. Road & Track shared these renderings of the auto from renowned artist Daniel Simon, though, so we'll let you decide for yourself on its looks. The lightened suspension also gave better geometry over the stock set-up.

"Aesthetically, I've been working closely with friend and creative sparring partner Daniel Simon and a great team here in California to present ideas that work functionally as well as emotionally for our clients." said Singer Vehicle Design Founder and Creative Director Rob Dickinson. "We have pushed the boundaries of this air-cooled icon in a manner that may never be repeated".
