Approached by owner Scott Blattner to rejuvenate his stunning 1990 Porsche 964, Singer Vehicle Design worked with Williams Advanced Engineering to fine-tune the vintage car. Part of the Williams Grand Prix Engineering Group, Williams Advanced Engineering ran a Dynamics and Lightweighting Study “DLS” before Singer’s remarkable restoration and performance modification expertise did the rest.

Fitting a new four-valve, four-camshaft, 500-horsepower flat-six engine, the underbody and surface aero performance was optimised by Williams Advanced Engineering, with improve suspension and weight reduction through the use of magnesium, titanium and carbon fibre to bring a vehicle weight of 990kg. In addition Michelin provide bespoke Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, there are lightweight 18” forged magnesium, monobloc, centre-lock wheels from BBS Motorsport and a Hewland magnesium 6-speed transmission. This custom Porsche 964 is undoubtedly one of Singer’s finest performance projects.
