When a factory-built vehicle is too tame for your tastes, aftermarket outfits exist to supply the need for bespoke projects. Singer Vehicle Design is your go-to name when it comes to Porsches. We’ve seen them work their magic on coupes and targas before, but this latest commission finally introduces its first convertible with upgrades based on its Turbo Study.
Established in 2009, the Los Angeles, California-based company specializes in Porsche restomods. The cabriolet in question here starts off as a 964-generation 911, which then receives a series of tweaks from Singer Vehicle Design. The team calls on a 930-generation 911 as its muse for the build.
Just like its previous outings, this drop-top is a breathtaking beauty. The donor 911 welcomes a carbon fiber widebody shell draped in a vibrant shade of Cadiz red. Trims in black bring out a nice contrast against the crimson colorway of its body. It flaunts a set of two-tone wheels with black spokes and silver rims.
Powering this Singer Vehicle Design creation is a 3.8-liter turbocharged flat-six. The engine’s output is at 510 horsepower, which is about 70 horsepower more than the standard Turbo Study’s mill. With the automated fabric roof down, you can see the cabin mostly in black with red accents.
Meanwhile, the electronically adjustable sports seats and door panels are wrapped in stylish tartan. “The first Porsche, the Sport 356/1 known as ‘Number 1,’ was a cabriolet, and high-performance, open-roof glamor has been part of the story ever since,” says Singer Vehicle Design Creative Direction Rob Dickinson. This example already has an owner, but you can always commission another.Learn More
