The latest Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer Turbo Study develops 516 hp

Singer Vehicle Design presents the latest evolution of its Turbo Study program. Rather than drawing inspiration from the exterior styling of the first generation Porsche 911, these models combine design cues from the 930 and 964 generations of the 911 Turbo.

As its name suggests, this Singer is equipped with an air-cooled 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine and an air-to-water intercooler. This engine develops 516 hp (380 kilowatts), which is an improvement over the 448 hp (330 kW) of the previous Turbo study. Previous Singer models used naturally aspirated engines, including the DLS engine built by Williams Advanced Engineering.

Singer said the previous Turbo Study customer specified it for the Grand Tourer, with things like heated, power-adjustable seats. On the other hand, this new buyer wanted to emphasize performance. Power is transmitted through a six-speed manual gearbox. The car is fitted with a sports suspension with a lowered ride height. The brakes are carbon-ceramic.

This car sports Turbo Racing White bodywork with a light green double stripe running down the center of the bodywork. The minty color also appears on the center sections of the Fuchs-inspired wheels. The front splitter, shark fin air intake and rear spoiler have an exposed carbon fiber finish. There is no rear bumper for a more streamlined look.

The interior of this Singer is dressed in houndstooth fabric with green and black elements on a white background. There’s a pair of lightweight carbon fiber seats with leather-trimmed bolsters. A cross-brace occupies the space usually reserved for the rear seats.

When Singer introduced the original Turbo Study model, the company said it already had over 70 reservations for those models. They are available in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel-drive configurations, depending on customer preference.

Singer will present a Turbo Study at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​taking place June 23-26, 2022.

Singer recently signed a deal with Porsche for the automaker to supply engines for some of its vehicles. Engines will be to Singer specifications.
