Singer and Williams haven't yet released all the details on the project, but we know the engine will make 500 horsepower and boast a rev limit over 9,000 rpm. Carbon fiber, magnesium, titanium, and even Inconel parts combine to save what we're sure will be a great deal of weight over the stock Porsche bits and pieces. "Singer is delighted to be working with Williams Advanced Engineering and Hans Mezger to offer our clients a 'next level' of restoration and modification services for their Porsche 911s," said Rob Dickinson, Singer founder. "With careful and dedicated development, this iconic air-cooled engine has much to give both its existing devotees and a generation of new enthusiasts."
Jonathan Williams, Williams Heritage Director, said of the partnership, "As an admirer of the 911, I'm thrilled that we're working with Singer and its clients on these restorations."
Thing is, it's hard not to be an admirer of both the original Porsche 911, and the range of restored and modified creations by Singer Vehicle Design. Expect more details within the next few weeks for this program, which is separate from Singer's other restorations, but in the meantime, check out the image gallery above to see the level of design and craftsmanship going into this project.
