Singer DLS

Porsche 911 restored and reimagined by Singer

Born from a collaboration between Singer Vehicle Design and Williams Advanced Engineering, the Dynamics & Lightweighting Study (DLS) was introduced in 2018, transforming the Porsche 911 964 into a restomod that seamlessly marries classic aesthetics with modern engineering.

With only 75 units produced, this meticulous restoration process pays homage to vintage automobiles while infusing the timeless silhouette with cutting-edge technology and bespoke craftsmanship. Inspired by the iconic 1973 Carrera RS 2.7, the DLS embodies a harmonious blend of performance and precision, weighing in at mere 990kg.

In developing a suitably special engine, Singer and Williams worked with Hans Mezger, the ex-Porsche engineer who is commonly considered the “father of the flat-six” (the engine type  found in all standard production Porsche 911s). The result is a highly advanced, 500 horsepower, 4-litre flat six that revs to an astonishing 7,900 rpm. Mated to a manual transmission, that power is sent to the rear wheels, which for the DLS is forged magnesium 18-inch BBS wheels wrapped in proprietary Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, delivering a visceral driving experience

Step inside and you’re greeted by an interior layout that stays true to Porsche’s original design ethos. Every detail is meticulously crafted to offer a timeless driving experience. The silver hue Martini Racing livery, which was a 2,800 hour hand-painting effort, adds a touch of racing heritage to this bespoke masterpiece.

The attention to detail extends beyond aesthetics, with thoughtful nods to Porsche’s racing legacy. Relocated fuel cap pays homage to one of the most important cars in Porsche history, the 550 Spyder which won the 1954 Carrera Panamerica with Hans Herrmann behind the wheel.

The tachometer proudly displays values up to 11,000. This cheeky reference to the “up to 11” scene from the cult movie “This Is Spinal Tap” is a nod to founder Rob Dickinson’s rockstar days, and adds a playful touch to the driving experience, despite the engine’s redline sitting at 7,900 RPM.

In essence, the Singer DLS transcends mere automotive engineering; it is a testament to passion, craftsmanship, and the relentless pursuit of automotive perfection.
