Singer Vehicle Design, a renowned California-based luxury restorer specializing in air-cooled Porsche 911s, presents a remarkable evolution to the Dynamics & Lightweighting Study (DLS). Following the requests from clients, Singer now introduces the DLS Turbo, offering bespoke restorations and modifications to these iconic Porsche cars. This meticulously crafted upgrade reflects the powerful legacy of the victorious 934/5 endurance racers from the 1970s, blending the thrill of the past with the performance of the present.
The Porsche 911, initially a naturally aspirated model, has been polished over time for optimum performance, both on the road and track. It was in the mid-1970s when the turbocharged 911 variant emerged, gradually evolving into the race-dominating Type 934/5 in 1977. With Singer’s new restoration services, owners of the Type 964 Porsche 911, produced between 1989 and 1994, can send their sports car for a customized, high-performance revamp. Each car is meticulously disassembled down to its steel monocoque.
The interior and exterior bodywork, along with all mechanical components, are removed and assessed. The chassis is cleaned, reinforced, and prepared for the next restoration stages, while the carbon fiber bodywork shape is determined using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis for optimum aerodynamics. Aspects like the central front intake, hood vent, rear fender intakes, and NACA ducts are designed for superior cooling performance.
Owners have the freedom to request either track-focused or road-focused restorations. The car in Blood Orange has been tailored for track performance with features like a high-downforce rear wing and a track-oriented front fascia. The Moet Blanc model, on the other hand, opts for a road-focused restoration with an aero-optimized rear ducktail spoiler and a road-oriented front fascia. With Singer’s restoration and modification services, the owner’s original Type 964 engine serves as the starting point. The engine is stripped down and reassembled with high-performance components to optimize performance. The uniquely evolved 3.8L flat-six engine now employs twin turbochargers, enabling power outputs over 700 HP at more than 9000 rpm.
Singer’s restoration services offer bespoke personalization for both exterior and interior presentation, allowing owners to select specific paint, leather, and material finishes. The price for Singer’s restoration services varies, with limited restorations commissioned. Interested parties can experience Singer’s reimagined 911 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed or the Monterey Peninsula Car Week in 2023.
