Porsche restorers at Singer Vehicle Design has partnered with racing firm Williams Advanced Engineering to elevate a classic white 1990 Porsche 911 with powerful enhancements, and created as a result of the company’s “Dynamics and Lightweighting Study.”

The project was commissioned by a Singer client who asked the company for something that is super fast, but also for it to be very lightweight. With that in mind, the bodywork was reconstructed from carbon fiber, and Williams worked on balancing the weight of the 911 by moving the engine forward slightly and relocating other components to the front trunk.

The bespoke vehicle is also aerodynamically optimized, with a small air channel at the rear window designed to work with the ducktail spoiler and diffuser. The engine boasts two ram-air intakes integrated into the rear quarter windows, while a vent in the spoiler helps disperse air. Additionally, the engine is an air-cooled 4-liter flat six, that revs up to over 9,000 rpm and produces 500 bhp.

Furthermore, the suspension was optimized by Williams, boasting a bespoke six-speed manual transmission, and the interior has also been revamped with a black and yellow theme, highlighted by more carbon fiber for weight reduction, along with balsa wood inserts, gold accents, a raised gear lever and more.

This restored Porsche 911 made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this past weekend, and this DLS model reportedly costs north of $1.8 million USD.

Last year, Singer Vehicle Design restored another 1990 Porsche 911 packing 500 horsepower.
