DLS takes to the ‘Ring Singer’s reimagined Porsche 911 964 goes for TUV approval
The California-based 964 restoration company, Singer Vehicle Design, has been out testing with its latest project on the Nürburgring Nordschleife as it seeks European homologation for its DLS.
The Design Lightweight Study, which is based on the 964-generation Porsche 911, is built in the UK and is Singer’s most complex road car restoration. Its 4.0-litre, 500hp flat six engine was developed with Williams Advanced Engineering, with input from the late Hans Mezger and fellow Porsche legend Norbert Singer.
The Singer team was joined at the ‘Ring by Porsche’s GT Department head, Andreas Preuninger, though it is believed this was not in any official capacity. Mr Preuninger is a known admirer of Singer’s reimagined 964s. This was the first time Rob Dickinson’s California-based concern had tested a DLS mule at the famous Green Hell, as Europe awaits delivery of its first DLS. Early commissions have so far gone to customers in North America.
