SINGER VEHICLE DESIGN CREATES A CUSTOM PORSCHE 964 COUPéDate: 2017-11-20
Singer vehicle design collaborates with Williams Advanced engineering in creating the Porsche 964 custom coupé. The result of the two-year development of the 964 depicts a relentless pursuit of aesthetics through a lightweight and artistic philosophy, and an attempt to celebrate an era of lightweight, air-cooled Porsche 911's that targeted absolute performance on road and track.
The collaboration offers restoration and modification services, known as DLS (dynamics and lightweighting study) – also developed with a collaboration of specialists such as BBS motorsport, Brembo and Michelin. Renowned Porsche engineers Norbert Singer and Hans Mezger participated as special consultants bringing their knowledge and guidance in the areas of aerodynamics and engine development.
The Porsche is presented in absinthe – a colour truly unique to the study – with interior leather in blood orange. Beneath the bonnet is a Porsche four-valve, four-camshaft, naturally aspirated 500 horsepower air-cooled flat-six engine developed with consultation by Hans Mazger.
The 942 has received underbody and surface aero performance optimization through computational fluid dynamics analysis wit consultation by Norbert Singer. Further weight reduction methods and the use of carbon fibre, titanium, magnesium and other advanced materials all contribute to a minimum vehicle weight of 990kg.
