Singer Vehicle Design Releases Its Wildest Porsche 911 Yet
The Los Angeles-based restoration company reinterprets the iconic 934/5 endurance racer—but this time, it’s street legal.
Singer Vehicle Design continues to reimagine and reinvent the air-cooled Porsche 911. This time the German marque’s Porsche 934/5 racing machine serves as a canvas, with the Californian restoration company riffing off the 1970s design to create a street-legal configuration.
First introduced in 1977 as an amalgamation of the 934 and 935—combining the chassis and engine of the former with the wheels, tires, and wings of the latter—and won six out of eight races that year in the SCAA Trans Am series.
Now, Singer Vehicle Design creates an amalgamation of its own, incorporating turbocharging into its Dynamics & Lightweighting Study (DLS) to create the Singer Porsche DLS Turbo. Under the skin, a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six is capable of producing 520 kW and redlines at over 9000 rpm, with power fed to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. There’s the option to choose between track-only and street-legal configurations, though if the decision is too difficult, the vehicle can be modified to switch between the two.
Channelling the aesthetic of the 1970s to great effect, the Singer Porsche DLS Turbo models feature almost-cartoonish fender flares with oversized air intakes. The track-only version (pictured here in orange) sports a giant rear wing while the road-going iteration has a duckbill spoiler. Carbon ceramic brakes are fitted as standard, with the car riding on forged-centre-lock magnesium wheels.
The interior retains the aesthetic Singer has become known for, with the cabin layout typical of a 964-generation 911. However, there’s a new switchgear and limitless potential for customisation.
The Singer Porsche DLS Turbo will be limited to 99 examples, with plans to be shown at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 13-16 July.
