Porsche 911 is the result of a collaboration by Singer and Williams and incorporates the best modern technologies available in a heavily reworked but classically proportioned 911 bodyshell.



A particular highlight is the carbon-ceramic brake setup while the wheels, tires and gearbox have been significantly uprated as well. To fine-tune all of these systems, Singer employed some of Porsche’s most renowned engineers for the task.




The 4.0-liter flat-six is normally aspirated (no fancy turbochargers here). The engine is based on the Hans Mezger design but developed by Williams to produce 500 horsepower and rev to 9,000 rpm. Throughout the engine, the design used not only the strongest parts available, but also lightweight parts, including titanium valves, magnesium, lightweight throttle bodies with F1-derived up and lower injectors, and a new oil system to help cool the engine.




Recaro created lightweight carbon-fibre sports seats for the DLS, while MOMO developed a lightweight carbon-fibre steering wheel. The pedals are carbon and titanium, while the instrument gauges float in a carbon-fibre instrument panel and feature hand-applied characters. Even the controls for the air-conditioning and heater are lightweight.
