When the Porsche restorers at Singer Vehicle Design announced they were partnering with racing firm Williams Advanced Engineering, we were excited without having seen anything. Even more so after we saw their first collaboration. And now that we’ve seen their latest project together, we’re wondering who we have to kill to get some seat time.
This is the Singer Vehicle Design DLS Goodwood. The DLS stands for “Dynamics and Lightweighting Study,” and it’s a 1990 Porsche 964 whose owner requested Singer and Williams restore and modify his car with an emphasis on—you guessed it—reducing weight. And as you probably guessed from the name, it’s set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.
Also, it looks rad, like all of Singer’s restored cars. That goes without saying.
Let’s talk specs. This guy has a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat six done up by Williams so it’s good for 500 horsepower at a howling 9,000 RPM. The motor boasts lightweight throttle bodies with supposedly F1-inspired upper and lower injectors, a unique oil lubrication system and it has dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. They moved it forward for better weight distribution too.
