All-New Porsche 911 vs. Singer 911 Modified

Article by Christian A., on April 19, 2016

The Porsche 911 is recognized worldwide because of its superb performance and features. Presently, it is the only mass-produced rear-engined vehicle. The classic supercar boasts an ancient design, which made Porsche consider phasing it out many years ago.

However, the Porsche 911 continued to receive enhancements and modifications through the years. The most remarkable improvements by far include hydraulic steering and a turbocharged flat-six for both the Porsche 911 Carrera and the Porsche 911 Carrera S.

On the other hand, California-based Singer Vehicle Design, founded by Porsche enthusiast and musician Rob Dickinson in 2009, has engineered the 911 Modified.

Of course, an enormous amount of cash is required to purchase these models. For a lucky group of people, the question they have to ponder is which car to acquire - the new Porsche 911 or the 911 Modified by Singer.

Porsche 911

The latest generation of the Porsche 911 Carrera comes with an increased power output with its bi-turbo charging system, offering a highly dramatic driving experience.

Porsche 911 Carrera is capable of delivering up to 370 hp or 272 kW while the Porsche 911 Carrera S is capable of delivering up to 420 hp or 309 kW. The latter offers greater power because of the turbochargers equipped with a tuned engine management, modified compressors, and a particular exhaust system.

Both of these upgrades represent an output increase of 20 hp or 15 kW from previous models. Moreover, both the Porsche 911 Carrera and the Porsche 911 Carrera S provide a three-liter displacement.

In terms of torque, the new turbocharged engines also deliver significantly enhanced maximum output of 450 Nm and 500 Nm from a minimum 1,700 rpm to a maximum 5,000 rpm for the Porsche 911 Carrera and the Porsche 911 Carrera S, respectively.

Singer 911 Modified

The 911 Modified is basically an integration of all the best and most convenient features of the Porsche 911 throughout its 50-year existence. Currently, Singer Vehicle Design gave the 911 further exterior modifications.

The interior, meanwhile, also boasts state-of-the-art functionalities that make driving more comfortable. Customizable features are also expanded, allowing drivers to enjoy the experience depending on their preference.

Getting the Singer treatment would certainly raise the price significantly but then, those who are in the market for this car clearly aren’t lacking in cash. The 4.0-liter engine, which is perfect for off-road driving, delivers a power output of 390 hp and a torque of 315 lb.-ft.

The 911 Modified can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and reach 100 mph in just 8.2 seconds. The core is complemented by a bespoke crankshaft, cams, connecting rods, cylinders, cylinder heads, intake system, oil pump, pistons, and throttle bodies.

The exceptional engine was specifically developed by Ed Pink Racing Engines, inspired by the 3.8-liter Cosworth engine that is also meant for off-road driving. Some car geeks believe that the 911 Modified is by far the best supercar ever made.

With Singer Vehicle Design’s dedication to bringing reimagined vehicles into fruition, it is needless to say that the 911 Modified is just as impressive, or even more so, as the classic Porsche 911.
