This Restomod Singer Vehicle Design Porsche 911 Gets 510 Horsepower – Robb Report
Singer Vehicle Design’s latest Porsche 911 restomod is a fresh, minty beauty.
On Wednesday, the catering house unveiled the latest model in its Turbo Study program. Thanks to this offer, owners can personalize a 911 according to their wishes. Earlier this year, that resulted in a Wolf Blue car focused on grand touring. Now the latest model leans on the sportier side of the vehicle, with a Turbo Racing White body and mint green racing stripes all the way down.
“This specification underscores the wide range of high-performance capabilities enabled by the study, from refined grand touring to a visceral focus on sports,” the company said in its announcement.
Of course, you want a sporty car to hit sporty speeds, which is why the new 911 features a power boost to 510 horsepower from the previous version’s 450 hp, according to Road & Track. That comes from the twin-turbocharged, air-cooled 3.8-liter flat-six, which also has air-to-water intercooling. Meanwhile, the suspension has been tuned for sport and the ride height has been lowered and stiffened for better aerodynamics and handling.
On the exterior of the vehicle you will find lightweight carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber visuals on the front splitter, shark fin intake and whale tail spoiler. The rear bumpers and rear wiper have been deleted, helping to emphasize the rear’s extra track width. Singer also added his mid-mounted fuel filler, which his old 911 restomod lacked.
Inside, the car is decked out in a bespoke funky houndstooth ‘Grun’ fabric that matches the mint color of the exterior. Up front there are lightweight carbon fiber seats, while a roll cage has replaced the typical rear seats. Elsewhere, you’ll notice lightweight door trim, painted interior surfaces and carbon fiber accents on the dash.
Singer noted that the new 911 highlights the wide range of customizations available through its Turbo Study program, so if you’re looking to drive something no one else really has, now’s your chance.
