LISTEN 03:46

Singer is one of those companies that take something, already magnificent and recreate it in their own modern way. Anyone who is familiar with Singer’s work knows of their impressive work on classic Porsche 911 models. Their latest resto-mod resulted in the company’s “Design and Lightweighting Study” (DLS). Although the enhanced 964 was first introduced in 2018 that was a development car. Fast-forward to nowadays and the first customer version of the Porsche 911 DLS is now a reality.

Each and every one of Singer’s creations is unique in its own way. The 911 DLS is no exception, as we see the same level of attention to detail as with their other Porsche 911 interpretations.

The first customer example of the Porsche 911 DLS by Singer started lie as a 1989 Porsche 964.

While the Singer 911 DLS development car was white, this one scores a beautiful Oak Green metallic paint, complimented by the contrasting Fuchs-style wheels, which are actually designed by BBS and boast an extremely deep dish, and bespoke center locks.

The whole package has been co-developed with some pretty big names, such as Williams Advanced Engineering, Bosch, BBS Motorsport, Michelin, Brembo, and Hewland. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Two rubber is a bespoke size, specifically designed for the Singer 911 DLS. As we mentioned, BBS was commissioned to make the bespoke forged magnesium wheels, with a unique center-lock design.

The engineers from Williams tweaked the aerodynamics, especially in the rear where they came up with a floating wing that keeps the air from detaching from the car’s surface, channeling it over the louvers straight into the wing. Although the car is never meant to be a high-downforce track monster, this allows for a more equalized air pressure over the front and rear of the Singer DLS.

With the 911 DLS, Singer wanted to retain the true spirit of classic Porsche 911 cars, like they always do. According to them, they want to celebrate the 911 as a sports car, not reinvent it. The engine is designed with consultation from legendary Porsche engineer Hans Mezger.

The results are astonishing. The Porsche 911 DLS by Singer has a 4.0-liter air-cooled flat-six producing 500 horsepower (373 kilowatts) without any form of forced induction. It also revs to over 9,000 RPM.

The Porsche 911 has always been known for being lightweight and nimble. Singer’s optimizations, in the form of the 911 DLS, promise a visceral driving experience, as well as high levels of performance and driver involvement. Chairman and founder, Rob Dickinson, took the Oak Green Singer DLS for a shakedown run and was astonished.

He praised the talent and dedication of the team, they’ve managed to gather, as well as the stunning result of their work. The Porsche 911 DLS by Singer will be produced in a very limited series of 75 units. Each of them would have a price of $1.8 million. All 75 cars will be built at the company’s UK facilities.

Singer has always been about balance and exquisite craftsmanship, while staying true to the idea of the classic air-cooled Porsche 911s. With the 911 DLS, the company has taken its philosophy to the next level, without compromising what they stand for - the celebration of the air-cooled Porsche 911. Moreover, this might be the closest thing we get, to a modern-day Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
