Singer 911

"Singer Vehicle Design rolled out its first prototype, plainly named the "Singer 911," at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance last month. Based on an '80s-era long-wheelbase 911 donor vehicle, the company strips each chassis to its bare shell for "reinvention" into what Singer calls a "celebration of the golden air-cooled era of the world's most important sports car."

Incontestable is its vintage Porsche 911 look. However, the Singer 911 is far from antiquated. The complete reincarnation includes chassis stiffening, new active aerodynamics, and a lightweight integral backbone structure and roll cage to improve torsional rigidity. Most interestingly, nearly all of the steel body panels are replaced by full carbon fiber composite bodywork candy-coated in Singer's exclusive "Racing Orange" paint.

Under the rear decklid is an air-cooled 3.82-liter flat-six sporting six individual throttle bodies. With a GT3 crankshaft and titanium connecting rods, the powerplant spins eagerly to 8,000 RPM. The engine sends 425 horsepower and 340 lb-ft of torque to a proper Getrag G50 six-speed manual transmission. According to the engineering team, the 2,400-pound Singer 911 will sprint to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 170 MPH.

Under the skin are Moton shock absorbers, Eibach coil-overs, and Smart Racing Products adjustable sway bars. The four-piston brakes are sourced from the race-bred Porsche 930. Completing the performance package, and appearing period-correct, are the custom Zuffenhaus forged aluminum three-piece "Fuchs" wheels.

Singer's attention to detail carries throughout the vehicle... with a decidedly modern touch. State-of-the-art Hella bi-xenon headlamps reside within the headlight buckets, while a special lightweight air-conditioning system keeps occupants cool (keen eyes will notice that even the 911's windshield wipers have been relocated to the optimal center-mounted "993" position). The audio system includes satellite radio, iPod, and Bluetooth connectivity. Navigation assistance is provided by a Garmin-sourced GPS.

The Singer 911 isn't for everyone, and its still-unannounced pricing will reflect that exclusivity. Touted by Singer as "the love child of a 1967 911S, a 1973 911 Carrera RS and a 1996 993 RS," the car is crafted for the passionate car enthusiast who is seeking a viscerally intense vehicle, surprising sophisticated, yet very reliable. It's an emotional thing. If the Singer 911 doesn't drop your jaw at first glance, it probably never will. "

It's nice, but at the $300k asking price, there will be other cars on my list before this.

Yeh, I can think of quite a few also. Just because it cost a lot to build it this way does not make it worth anywhere near $300K, unles you have Bill Gates type of money to spend.

It's just pretty so I had to share. I like the little engine bay cover..I imagine that it tilts with speed.

Do tell Jon. Do their high output motors have a lot of issues or blow up at the track or something?

The review of that 9-meister powered GT-2 replica in 911+P world a few issues back seemed like a screamer.

U can PM me if u want.

Many reasons, you can get some enlightenment from the middle of page 3 onwards on this thread 993GT2EVO dyno report number two - Rennlist Discussion Forums

Jon, the car is actually a black 993 GT2 replica built with a 4.0 litre N/A 9-meister 'wunder' motor which claimed to make over 400hp or something. The article was basically about the car and 9-meister, and also had a sub-article on the 9-meister motor guru ( Colin Belton?) who discussed all of the work on head flow and cylinder optimization he did to achieve his incredibly high specific output numbers.

Sorry about the thread hi-jack fellas.

Since this is an opinion based thread I can say no thanks. You can build a car with that look and great performance for a small fraction of the cost listed. Toss all the high end crap that adds cost; that is the new Porsche not the old school Porsche that this car should emulate. And forchristsakes if you want to use giant tires make the fenders big enough to cover them.

Interesting, I think Matteo was very happy with their work on his second engine. I think his engine is similar NA, ITB, 4.0 liters ~ 400whp or so.

Sweet car.

Side note....anyone know where you can buy a similar black lower valance? I've been looking at mustangs and other new cars. Many have them. Was thinking about buying one from a high volume and cheap production car and adapting it to my early 911 front bumper.
