Singer has a well-deserved reputation for building some of the world's greatest bespoke air-cooled Porsche 911s, and two new 964-era 911s from Singer graced the grounds of the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The twins are part of a new Singer effort dubbed the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS). Singer goes above and above to make these vintage 911 restorations lighter and quicker, and based on the statistics, we believe they succeeded.
Singer will manufacture 75 DLS 911s, each commissioned by a different customer to their exact requirements. Starting with the Oxford commission, a dark green 911. It has an exterior color named Oak Green Metallic, which is accentuated with Champagne trim, and an interior color called Bone White with Tartan seat centers. The light green 911 is known as the Unico commission, and its exterior color is Absinthe Green. The combination of nickel trim and Blood Orange on the outside and interior creates strong contrasts, and it comes equipped with features such as air conditioning and a front-lift system.
Both of the vehicles displayed here are powered by a unique 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine that produces 500 horsepower at 9,000 rpm. The power comes with a slew of carbon-fiber improvements that both increase aerodynamics and save weight.
Both 911s have a unique double-wishbone front suspension as well as a lightweight rear suspension. The vehicles also have Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and contemporary features like traction and stability control.
The 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed took place from July 8 to July 11, 2021.
