Singer Switches Up Porsche’s 911 Safari With Its ‘All-Terrain Competition Study’

Porsche might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of sand-shredding desert racers; however, the German automaker has a history rich with rally pedigree. From the first-ever 911 to compete in the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally to the Dakar-winning 953 and 959, the iconic air-cooled platform may have been engineered for the tarmac, but it has plenty of dirt in its DNA.

For its latest project, Singer Vehicle Design partnered with Porsche rally specialist Richard Tuthill on a build calling back to classic 911 Safaris. Dubbed the ‘All-Terrain Competition Study,’ it started as a 1990 964-gen 911 before undergoing a top-to-bottom rally restoration. Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.6L flat-six good for 450hp and 420lb-ft of torque — a figure that can be bumped up even further. Of course, to prepare the Porsche for proper off-road performances, Singer couldn’t just shoehorn in some extra horses. Between a completely carbon body and a set of five-way adjustable suspension, it’s been radically reconfigured to deliver race-winning results. And when you consider that it sports upgrades like a five-speed sequential gearbox, an FIA-spec roll cage, and a set of BF Goodrich K02 tires, this is one classic that’s meant to move.
