Reimagined Porsche 911 Turbo Gets Convertible Treatment

Singer Vehicle Design has revealed the third commission in its Turbo Study model range: a restored and modified Porsche 911 Turbo convertible.

Singer Vehicle Design, the California-based Porsche 911 restoration firm, has unveiled its first convertible model, based on the new Turbo Study range.

The third Singer Turbo Study commission was inspired by Porsche’s 930-generation 911 convertible, manufactured between 1985 and 1989, making it the first Singer offering with a sloped roof since the company’s inception in 2013.

The Singer Turbo Study is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission, sending up to 380 kW to the rear wheels.

Singer says this example has been outfitted with touring-focused suspension and race-bred carbon-ceramic brakes.

While the model is based on the 964-generation Porsche 911 chassis, this Singer Turbo Study comes with carbon fiber body panels that replicate the 930-generation sports car, painted Cadiz Red.

Gloss black paint has been applied to the Turbo Study’s front lip, side air intakes and rear spoiler, highlighting the wing’s iconic whale tail design.

As with the existing Singer Turbo Study to order examples, this example rolls on a set of ‘Fuchs’ style five-spoke wheels, with the spokes painted black while the barrel has been machined back to bare metal.

Beneath the power soft top is a bespoke interior, with power-adjustable front seats with ’70s-inspired red tartan centers and thick leather bolsters to keep occupants stable when cornering.

The classic dashboard of the Porsche 911 is complemented by Black Forest red wood accents and modern conveniences such as wireless phone charging and air conditioning.

Singer has yet to put a price on its range of Turbo Study models, although models based on the Porsche 911 are expected to cost at least $750,000 (A$1.07 million), not including the cost of the donor car 964. .

The Singer Turbo Study is due to make its public debut this weekend at Monterey Car Week in California.
