Singer’s Latest Reimagined Porsche 911 Massively Benefits From CFD Modeling

Singer Vehicle Design is already widely recognized as one of, if not the world’s single most respected Porsche tuner — a reputation the custom car shop didn’t garner by sitting on its laurels. Year after year, Singer has strived to push the envelope and consistently one-up itself through a series of involved initiatives such as its Dynamics & Lightweighting Study. And after extensive research and development, Singer has now pulled the cover off of the latest build to benefit from its DLS program — a stunning one-off Porsche 911 dubbed “Thing 1.”

Riding on a custom set of ultra-beefy Fuchs-inspired center-locking five-arm wheels, the exterior of the car has been cloaked in a Parallax White livery that’s now contrasted via a suite of exposed carbon aero bits. Just as carbon fiber-laden is the project’s largely blacked-out, sport-focused interior, which has been given Singer’s signature makeover, complete with bespoke upholstery, seating, and controls. Powering Thing 1 is a specially-built naturally-aspirated, air-cooled, 24-valve 4.0-liter flax-six that was developed with help from Williams Advanced Engineering. Sending power to the car’s rear wheels, its massaged straight-six has been mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

Thing 1’s crowning achievement, however, is its bodywork. Massively benefitting from computational fluid dynamics modeling, the 911 wears an ultra-widebody kit that includes a unique front spoiler paired with a custom front splitter that are set directly in front of a twin oil-cooler setup, a rear ducktail spoiler, front winglets, a rear diffuser, front fender vents that draw hot air out, and a roof that funnels air over the car before sending it to the back windows which feed into the engine’s U-shaped carbon fiber intake setup.

Though Thing 1 is already spoken for, the build nonetheless demonstrates Singer’s commitment to slowly but steadily rising the bar in the elite Porsche tuning space — making us all the more excited to see what Singer whips up next.
