We would do very bad things for a Porsche 911 Turbo from Singer

Spending 24 hours in a locked room with tarantulas, eating live cockroaches, being flung to 9G in a centrifuge as a fighter jet pilot: we would take on all those kinds of Fear Factor challenges to be allowed to drive a Porsche 911 Turbo from Singer. Because just look at it! This is Art with a capital A. So we apologize in advance for the possible spelling mistakes in this story. Because it’s not so easy to type with tears in your eyes of greed.

Singer is an American coachbuilder. The company takes old Porsche 911s, mostly of the 964 generation, and converts them into beautiful creations with partly modern technology. So far, Singer has only built 911s with naturally aspirated six-cylinder. At the beginning of this year, the company unveiled its first Turbo model, with 450 horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission.

Porsche 911 Turbo from Singer with no less than 517 hp

The Porsche 911 Turbo in these photos should be seen as an even sportier version of it. Its 3.8-litre six-cylinder boxer engine is a wonderful combination of old and new. It is air-cooled, as all 911s were until 1997, but has modern turbos, intercoolers and electronically controlled wastegates. The block blows 517 hp towards the rear wheels, via another six-speed manual gearbox. Four-wheel drive is an option.

Upgraded brakes behind beautiful Fuchs wheels

The characteristic black area in front of the rear wheels – the shark fin – is closed on normal Porsche 930s. Singer has subtly incorporated an air inlet to feed the intercoolers of the two turbos. Behind the beautiful five-spoke Fuchs wheels are upgraded brakes with ABS. Traction control should keep you out of the thicket if you’re a little too enthusiastic on the throttle.

The price of a Singer quickly goes towards 1 million dollars

According to Singer, more than 70 customers have already made reservations for a Turbo. They can put together their own car down to the smallest detail. The price of a Singer always remains a bit shadowy. Reportedly, the starting price for a Singer 911 without a turbo is about $500,000. But if you want one with personal touches, the price tag quickly goes towards $1 million.
