The Singer 911 is no mere imitation, clone or retro-hot rod, but a re-interpretation and rebirth of theearly performance-focused 911’s. The new vehicle is the result of a fusion between the purity of the original911 and modern materials, design, and updated technologies, and aftermarket experience into a unique sports carthat recaptures the essence of the early 911’s golden age. The Singer 911 capitalizes on the 40 years of solutionsand enhancements that have resulted from the racing aftermarket’s embracing the original 911. Borrowing thebest elements from the air/oil cooled 911’s long production span such as the “chic” of the long hood pre-’74 racespecials, and the engineering durability of the later cars from the 80’s and 90’s, Singer Vehicle Design capitalizeson the vast know how and evolutionary advances the original 911 has enjoyed. The experience offered by thenew Singer 911 is a passionate celebration of the history making, iconic 911, and creates an enhanced sportscarthat honors the original 911’s soul.

Unibody and Suspension

Beginning with any longer wheelbase 911 (1969 to 1989) donor car, the Singer 911 is stripped to itsshell to begin reinvention. The reincarnation retains the original wheelbase, the A-pillar position, the roofline,suspension mounting and transaxle mounting points. Everything else is restored, reimagined and vastlyimproved for performance and expression.

To optimize suspension performance add rigidity to the unibody, the 911 donor car’s structure has beenthoroughly reinforced with a labor intensive stitch welding procedure and the addition of a lightweight integralbackbone structure that helps further improve the chassis torsional rigidity. A developmental carbon-fibersecond skin further aids this rigidity. The benefits of such measures to ride and handling given the improvementsin unibody’s resistance to twisting are vast, as the suspension is converted from torsion bars to the Macphersonstrut and Carrera SC rear trailing arm with coilover set-up seen on vintage racing 911’s. Moton dampers withremote oil reservoirs and Eibach springs are used at all four corners and offer multiple settings for ride andhandling that the steel shell can now fully exploit. The Singer 911 will also benefit from extensive use of SmartRacing suspension products, such as multi-adjustable anti-roll bars, suspension bushing that help maintaincorrect geometry.

A Jerry Woods Enterprises electric/hydraulic power steering system is fitted to the Singer 911 thatmaintains the vital 911steering feel and feedback while helping quicken the steering reactions as compared to theoriginal ZF rack and pinion.

The racing 911’s were famous for their braking ability and making up distance on the competition inthe corners. The Singer 911 is equipped with competition-proven Brembo calipers (4-pot) and rotors that arederived from the 917 and 930 models. The brakes will be peeking out from behind period-evoking Zuffenhaus,lightweight, five-spoke, three-piece forged aluminum wheels. The 17 x 9-inch front wheels are wrapped insticky, modern Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires measuring 225/45/17 and the rear 17 x 11-inch wheel wears275/40/17 rubber.

Drivetrain

The Singer 911 utilizes the most evolved air/oil cooled 911 engine from the 993. However,the goal with the stock 3.6-liter engine was to develop it into the most modern rendering of the air/oil cooled engine concept. With the help of U.K.-based, Ninemeister, masterminded by engineer, ColinBelton, and constructed in San Francisco by famed engine builder Jerry Woods Enterprises, the stock3.6-liter engine is rebuilt to displace 3.82 liters. The engine has been recreated with premium componentssuccessfully developed and proven through Ninemeister’s racing exploits. The Singer 911’s engineachieves its displacement with Ninemeister 103mm pistons and cylinders, the 76.4mm crankshaft of the997 GT3, and the 132mm lightweight titanium connecting rods. The large bore, short stroke combinationcan spin to 8000 rpm, but offers a broad, flexible torque curve. The key to the power are the highlydeveloped Ninemeister billet aluminum heads that allows this 12-valve engine to compete with the powerof water-cooled 24-valve engines found in the latest version of the GT3. A completely re-engineeredcomponent the billet aluminum Ninemeister heads are stronger, more resistant to extreme heat, andfeature the latest thinking in port design to vastly improve the breathing and output of these motors.

A Ninemeister valvetrain with valves, springs, and cam profiles have been designed to maximize thecylinder heads port flow capabilities and are a vital piece of the combination. Ninemeister’s individual throttlebody induction provides maximum tunable power to each cylinder with eye-popping throttle response, and mostimportantly perhaps, the sweetest 911 exhaust growl imaginable. More importantly, the engine will be managedby an advanced Motec M800 ECU that also adds launch control, traction control, data logging capability -- allelectronic features never seen on the original 911’s.

For customers, the engine will be available in two states of tune -- luxury and touring. Singer willhave a tune producing about 360hp with a broad torque curve. For higher performance, a more track focusedstate of tune offers 425 hp and 340 lbs. ft. of torque. A 997 GT3R oil pump moves oil through the Singer 911’shigh capacity dry sump system will be improved with an enhanced fan-assisted cooling system. Race-car specstainless steel braided hose and fittings are used throughout the Singer 911. The bulletproof 3.82-liter enginecombination is matched to a nearly indestructible six-speed G50 transaxle that has been revised with a close ratiocogs, and a limited slip differential. A twin plate carbon clutch capable of withstanding 700 lbs. ft. of torqueand a lightweight flywheel help transmit engine power to the transmission. The Singer 911 expels engine fumesthrough lightweight stainless steel heat exchangers that flow to 100 cell catalytic converters, and a Singer Designstainless steel muffler that helps enhance the motor’s sonorous tone.

The Singer’s performance will be scintillating as the vehicle will get down to 2400 lbs. curb weightproviding a nimble, connected and thoroughly fulfilling sportscar experience. With a power to weight ratioof 5.6 lbs per horsepower, the 425 hp Sports version explodes from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds, 0 to 100mph in 8.5seconds, and exceeds a top speed of 170 mph.

Interior

As for the interior, the Singer 911 features an original 911-style instrument cluster with all-new gaugesset in a revised dash panel. The Singer 911 interior is not carpeted in keeping with the traditional feel of thespartan race-focused 911’s (R, ST, and RSR) but will be trimmed in supple dark racing green leather. Thin,lightweight but effective sound deadening measures controls interior noise while still maintaining the auralpersona of the early 911’s. A re-engineered vintage 911 Recaro seat uses structural carbon fiber in addition tooffering fully electric operation and premium leather surface covering. Finally, no vintage, performance focusedinterior would be complete without a MOMO steering wheel and the Singer 911 features a new interpretation ofthe company’s classic ‘Monza’ wheel.

Acknowledging the advances in conveniences missing in the original 911, modern amenities such asa lightweight electric air conditioning system, Garmin Navigation system, ipod interface and even Bluetoothconnectivity are also available in the Singer 911. Care is taken to add these features while minimizing anyweight penalty by utilizing a lightweight wiring harness for all accessories and engine management.

Exterior

Extensive use of composite materials (carbon fiber) for the entire vehicle exterior will leave the doorpanels as the only original sheetmetal on the Singer 911. The composite materials form an exterior for theSinger 911 that re-invents while emulating the early 911 RSR and ST’s most prominent feature; the fender flares.These flares dictated the aggressive stance and sense of performance that these early cars conveyed even whilestanding still. Capitalizing on modern materials technology, the Singer 911 body makes extensive use of carbonfiber panels, and autoclave pre-preg Kevlar honeycomb in the creation of stunning, but very lightweight exteriorpieces. The Singer 911 prototype is finished in vintage-appearing Singer Racing Orange. Other colors will beavailable to customers. In addition to the modern interpretation of the lightweight philosophy, the exterior willbe updated with a uniquely designed HID headlamp arrangements that greatly improves exterior lighting.

The Singer 911’s aerodynamic performance is improved with a front lip spoiler that reduces front endlift by 12 percent, and a speed sensitive rear spoiler that retracts back into the body (first seen on the 964).

The FeelingSure the Singer 911 looks like a vintage 911, and maintains some of the same character, but theconnections its exterior evokes is unique. There are hints of 911R in the taillights and bumper design, as wellas RSR in the bulbous flares, or even some 911ST in the profile, but there is no mistaking that upon closerinspection the Singer 911 is a very different interpretation of these vintage themes. Beneath that “long hood”emulating skin is the heart of the last air/oil cooled 911(type 993) and a host of the latest technology that placesthe Singer 911 in a place all its own. The car protects the romance of the original 911 concept but radicallymodernizes it into an ultimate 911 expression for the enthusiast who can never forget time spent behind thewheel of the car that started life as the 901 Concept. Forty-six years later, the Singer 911 prototype is theultimate validation of the model that defined a brand, a segment, and became a cultural icon to generations.
