Vintage 1990 Porsche 911 Gets Singer Facelift For Goodwood Festival of Speed
Published June 20, 2016
Goodwood Festival of Speed is always a chance to see some great and diverse pieces of automobile industry’s finest examples, and this year’s event will be no different. Among the sea of intoxicating vehicles of various types, one 26-year old German with British home address and American college diploma should stand out from the crowd. 1990 Porsche 911 reworked by California-based house Singer is that prominent graduate, and this year’s Goodwood is the start of its post-graduate studies of sorts.
This 964 Series Porsche 911 has been reworked from the ground up, and nicknamed Newcastle. That would be its hometown in the UK. This is the reason it’s right-hand driven, but we won’t hold that against it. The exterior is painted in Singer Racing White with lightest of the light blue stripes and dark blue lettering which are matched by correspondingly colored Fuchs wheels. That same blueish accents are present inside as well, but in much stronger force. Door covers, lower dashboard accents, carpets and seats are all covered in dark royal blueish hue. The seats themselves are a mixture of suede and leather, and look extremely supportive and comfy. On the other hand, dashboard department has been kept simple with one contrasting orange gauge and Momo Prototipo three-spoke steering wheel.
Power comes from freshly installed 4.0L naturally aspirated flat-six which generates up to 390 horses and 315 pound-feet of torque. Given Porsche 911 is such a light car, that’s enough for 0 to 60 in only 3.3 seconds. Singer’s latest addition will apparently be driven by Chris Harris who you might know as the new Top Gear presenter. Some might even know him for his tough love articles about Ferrari and Lamborghini. Let’s hope he’ll fall in love with this Porsche, though. I know, I have. Oh, and we have a video for you as well.
