When enthusiasts want nothing but the best results from a restoration project, it’s either that they take matters into their own hands or turn to a reputable shop to produce perfection. For classic Porsches, a go-to establishment would be Singer Vehicle Design. To help convince you of their awesomeness, here’s a custom 911 setup they call the Turbo Study.
As you all know, sports car models before 2015 were all equipped with naturally aspirated power plants. Therefore, the Turbo Study option is aimed at owners of old-school 911s who just want to freshen up their rides. Singer Vehicle Design starts with 964 generation machines and works its magic.
First, we have the powertrain. Inside the rear engine compartment now sits a 3.8-liter twin-turbo and intercooled unit mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Automotive purists will love how the Turbo Study revives the driving experience. Depending on customer needs, AWD and RWD configurations are available
The company says customers can expect to get 450 horsepower, but adding more tuning options can drive the numbers up. What we have next is the sleek 911 bodyshell. To deliver optimal weight reduction without impacting its stiffness, Singer Vehicle Design fitted the Turbo Study with carbon fiber body panels.
It then gets a coat of Wolf Blue with sections left bare to contrast the colorway. It’s cool how the black line on the side creates the outline of a shark fin just ahead of the rear wheels. Singer Vehicle Design notes that these are admissions. Finally, the cabin sports Malibu Sand leather upholstery with Black Forest wood trim on the dashboard. The Turbo study is breathtakingly beautiful to behold.
