The seductive Coupé body, irresistibly reminiscent of the Porsche 930 Turbo, is powered by an air-cooled 3.8-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine assisted by two turbochargers. Well-known American company Singer has published photos of the second Porsche 911 from the new Turbo Study program, inspired by the legendary Porsche 930 Turbo from the G Series.
Compared to the first customer whose Singer 911 Turbo is equipped with (i) elements that contribute to driving comfort, the second customer of Singer's "turbo story" (which is currently waiting for more than 70 customers) insisted on a car with which performance will be above all the rest.
Responding to the request, in the Singer, its white 911 Turbo was equipped with an additionally modified suspension with which the car floor is even closer to the ground, carbon-ceramic brakes visible behind the green Fuchs rims, and highly profiled seats.
Granite as the material inside
"It’s a massive opportunity to take things to the next level," Dickinson says, "we’re introducing wood and cork and – hold onto your hat – granite as the material inside; the Classic and DLS cars have a lightweight, road racing ethic while the Turbo is sporting but it’s a celebration of refinement and luxury, too.
Hence why the materials are sourced from partners that also work with Aston Martin and Bentley." founder and executive chairman of Singer Group, Rob Dickinson said about the first Porsche 911. The performance is supported by the fact that the air-cooled 3.8-liter 6-cylinder bi-turbo boxer engine in this case develops 510 horsepower, which is 60 "horsepower" more than the first delivered Singer 911 Turbo in the Touring edition.
"The Turbo Study also uses twin turbos with electric wastegates and we’ve added air-to-water intercooling, which supports the increased power output," adds Dickinson. "It’s an iconic part of that car and could be an appealing part of the car still; given we’re still in development, watch this space – the ability to put two different mappings that could result in more or less turbo lag is an interesting one." A 6-speed manual transmission is responsible for transmitting power to the ground.
The California-based company, which was founded in 2009, has not revealed how much a modern interpretation of the Porsche 930 Turbo costs, but unofficially, about a million dollars are mentioned.
