We’re suckers for the Porsche 911, even more so when a restomod is involved, mixing the fantastically pristine classic looks with modern amenities that make sure the car doesn’t become a windowmaker all over again.
Singer Vehicle Design’s restorations of the air-cooled generations of the 911 are worldwide renowned – and the prices reflect that – and that’s mostly thanks to the obsessive attention to detail involved with the projects. Now these amazing machines are set to become even more amazing and advanced thanks to a partnership between Singer and Williams Advanced Engineering that will make sure the absolute cutting edge technology resides underneath he body of the classic coupes. And this is their first ensemble project – a beautiful Absinthe green and Blood Orange leather 911.
Scott Blattner is the owner of the newly restomoded 1990 Porsche 911 – the project aiming to also lower weight besides lifting performance. Williams Advanced Engineering worked with Singer on the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study, and the result is utterly impressive. The 911 has a weight of just 2,180 pounds (990 kilograms) and a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine that goes up to more than 9,000 rpm where it will find 500 ponies. Williams worked on the aerodynamics as well, and the partners made us of magnesium, titanium, and carbon fiber. Other goodies were brought by experts – BBS forged magnesium 18-inch wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, Brembo monobloc calipers and carbon composite rotors and a Hewland-made magnesium, six-speed manual transmission.
