Singer Unveils Latest Custom Porsche 911 Inspired by the Porsche 934/5

In their most recent project, Singer introduced a new restomod based on the 964-generation Porsche 911, which they’ve named the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – Turbo.

Combining elements from two previous Singer restomods, namely the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study and the Turbo Study, the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – Turbo offers a unique and impressive package.

For those unfamiliar with Singer’s previous work, the company specializes in creating lightweight wide-body Porsche 911s powered by turbocharged engines. In their latest creation, they’ve incorporated new bodywork inspired by the dominant Porsche 934/5 race car from the 1977 Trans Am Series, ensuring a distinctive appearance.

Recalling his inspiration for this project, Rob Dickinson, Singer’s chairman and founder, shared, “I vividly remember the moment I first saw the Porsche 934/5 racing car during my childhood. It left a lasting impression on me, and I’ve always wanted to pay homage to that iconic vehicle through our work at Singer. Collaborating with our clients, we aimed to capture the essence of the 934/5.”

Singer developed the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – Turbo in response to customer requests and to align with their involvement with Hertz Team Jota’s entry of a Porsche 963 LMDh in the 2023 World Endurance Championship, which draws inspiration from Porsche’s turbocharged endurance race cars of the late 1970s. Singer also designed the livery for Hertz Team Jota’s 963.

The Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – Turbo is available in two versions: one with a track-focused setup (finished in Blood Orange) and another optimized for road use (finished in Moet Blanc). The primary distinctions lie in the areas of aerodynamics and suspension tuning.

Both versions feature carbon-fiber bodywork that reduces weight while enhancing rigidity, along with aerodynamic enhancements for improved downforce and cooling. Notably, the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – Turbo retains the air-cooled engine of the original 964 911.

Singer takes the stock engine and transforms it into a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-6, equipped with four valves per cylinder, electric wastegates, an air-to-water intercooler, and a high-flow exhaust. The modified engine can rev beyond 9,000 rpm and delivers over 700 horsepower, according to Singer.

Further specifications of the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – Turbo include a 6-speed manual transmission, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, and lightweight forged magnesium centerlock wheels (19-inch front and 20-inch rear) wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 or Cup 2R tires.

Singer intends to showcase the cars at the upcoming 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K. next month. They will also be present at the 2023 Monterey Car Week in California in August.
