California’s Singer Vehicle Design keeps a pretty packed garage these days as they continue to reimagine and restore classic Porsche 911 examples for well-to-do clients. Just a while back, we relayed the details of “Virginia”: a 360 HP, 3.8-liter Porsche 911 coupe given new life by Singer, and later tested by Ezra Dyer for Yahoo! Autos.
Well, the company’s latest effort sounds no less impressive: a Porsche 911 with a 4.0-liter flat-6, officially dubbed the “Porsche 911 4.0 Reimagined by Singer.” Autoblog contributor Basem Wasef was able to sit behind the wheel for a session of spirited driving through the mountains recently, and the result can be seen below.
Unfortunately, the video includes no information about this special Porsche 911 by Singer, nor does the Autoblog website. The sound of the engine, and footage of it tearing through the mountains: that’s all we’re granted by which to appraise the car.
We’re guessing that this Porsche 911 4.0 produces near enough 390 horsepower; that’s the claimed figure for the 911 Targa recently revitalized by Singer Vehicle Design, which also packs 4.0 liters of displacement. That car is making a guest appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Singer driven here by Wasef, however, is likely not.
Check out the video from Autoblog below, and if it gives you nothing else to be excited about, remember that at least you get to head that marvellous exhaust note.
