SINGER VEHICLE DESIGN
Singer Vehicle Design announces details of a client-commissioned Dynamics and Lightweighting Study undertaken with Williams Advanced Engineering and other technical partners. We have assembled a gallery and the reaction from around the automotive world.
Take a look and be sure to check out the press release from Singer.
Singer, the California-based company that “restores and reimagines” Porsche 911s made between 1989 to 1994, has been working with Williams Advanced Engineering (of Formula One fame), Michelin, Brembo, BBS Motorsport and others to offer new “lightweight services” for owners of classic Porsche 911s. The results are astonishing.
Porsche restoration/modification/reimagination specialist Singer officially dropped details on its most drool-worthy 911 project to date: a lightweight 964-era 911 with a 500-horsepower 4.0-liter flat-6 engine. The formula is simple: subtract weight and add power; the results are incredible. Singer worked with Williams Advanced Engineering to bring the car…
“What if Singer worked on restoring and modifying my beloved 27-year old Porsche 964, with the assistance of an engineering concern born from the world of F1. How would such a car look and how would it perform?”
Immediately upon its introduction in 1989, the 964 was seen as Porsche taking the 911 in a new direction. It was unveiled in all-wheel drive form, traded torsion bars for springs and shocks, smoothed its bumpers, and gave the model anti-lock brakes and power steering for the first time and as standard features.
For us, the want has been seriously strong with every single car we’ve seen Singer Vehicle Design put together, but the Californian firm’s latest effort is on another level. It’s another 964-generation 911, the result of a ‘Dynamics and Lightweighting Study’ (DLS) “undertaken with Williams Advanced Engineering and other technical partners.”

After a one-off collaboration on Singer client Scott Blattner’s 946, Singer, Williams, and a whole team of automotive specialists have decided to share their technological innovations, known as the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study, with more of its valued customers…
After months of waiting, the fruits of the Singer-Williams matchup finally take shape. The California-based Porsche restorer and atelier reveled renderings of the first of the so-called “Dynamics and Lightweighting Study” (DLS) developed with heavy input from Formula 1 powerhouse Williams. Like the majority of reimagined 911s, all DLS projects will begin life as a Porsche 911 964 from the early 1990s.
This summer, Singer Vehicle Design and Williams released the first details on their wildly modified air-cooled Porsche flat-six, an engine set to be installed into a restored 964. Now, that reimagined 911 makes its debut in these computer renderings, and Singer and Williams have released more details on the restoration project.
