First 911 Turbo restomod from Singer
US-based Singer has revealed its first turbocharged restomod Porsche 911, called the Turbo Study. It is based on a 964 model and uses twin turbos attached to a 3.8-litre air-cooled flat-six with more than 450bhp.
The rear-wheel drive Turbo Study has a six-speed manual gearbox, carbon-ceramic brakes, and suspension that has been set up for road use. Bodywork incorporates carbon-fibre to reduce weight, while the cabin is finished in Malibu Sand with Black Forest wood accents.
Singer says this is a basic mechanical specification for further Turbo commissions and customers can choose more powerful options, as well as cars with a track focus.
Rob Dickinson, Founder and Executive Chairman, Singer Group Inc, said: ‘My first ever ride in a Porsche 911 as an 11-year old in 1976 left me dry-mouthed and speechless - it was a black 930 Turbo with red tartan seats. Forty-five years on from that life-changing moment, I’m excited to present the results of our study that aim to capture the awesome thrill of Porsche’s first “supercar” while reimagining its performance and refinement and collaborating with owners to take both to new heights. I believe it’s a fitting tribute to a car that changed my life and many others.’
