Limited Edition 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0L in April

2010 Grey Black/Guards Red Porsche 911 GT3 RSVarious reports are suggesting that Porsche is preparing to launch a limited edition of the new generation 911 GT3 RS. Although details are scarce at the moment, we did learn that the future Porsche 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition will have a 200 cc larger engine in comparison to the standard engine. Don’t you just love Porsche? When other car makers release a limited edition, it’s usually about a few badges, go-faster stripes and new rims. When Porsche does it, they just go for more “power!”.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition is have a 4.0-liter engine developing 500 hp, which is an 50 horsepower over the base model. The regular 2010 911 GT3 RS is already developed with the race track in mind, so what could a performance limited edition offer in addition to that? Apparently, the limited edition 911 GT3 RS will have an even more extreme suspension setup, will be lighter and some speculate that it will get a double-clutch transmission. If this will be the case, we could also add bigger brakes, and possibly some aerodynamic enhancements for increased downforce.

Singer Porsche 911

Singer Racing Green Porsche 911We first spotted Singer’s 911 Concept in Monterey last year at the historic races at Laguna Seca. From afar, it just looked like another classic Porsche 911, but a closer look revealed much, much more. Singer Vehicle Design, a California based company, is taking a new approach to the usual tuning game. Instead of chopping up, completely changing and oftentimes overdoing the styling of the vehicle, Singer is approaching their vehicle customizations as Restored, Re-imagined and Reborn designs. So far, their customizations have focused on classic cars (well, one really since the company just started this year) From Singer’s media overview:

The Singer 911 is no mere imitation, clone or retro-hot rod, but a re-interpretation and rebirth of the early performance-focused 911’s. The new vehicle is the result of a fusion between the purity of the original 911 and modern materials, design, and updated technologies, and aftermarket experience into a unique sports car that recaptures the essence of the early 911’s golden age. The Singer 911 capitalizes on the 40 years of solutions and enhancements that have resulted from the racing aftermarket’s embracing the original 911. Borrowing the best elements from the air/oil cooled 911’s long production span such as the “chic” of the long hood pre-’74 race specials, and the engineering durability of the later cars from the 80’s and 90’s, Singer Vehicle Design capitalizes on the vast know how and evolutionary advances the original 911 has enjoyed. The experience offered by the new Singer 911 is a passionate celebration of the history making, iconic 911, and creates an enhanced sportscar that honors the original 911’s soul.

Porsche 911 Singer Design productionSinger starts with any longer wheelbase 911 (from 1969 to 1989), strips it down to it’s shell and starts the reinvention process. The only elements retained during this process are the original wheelbase, the A-pillar position, the roofline, suspension mounting and transaxle mounting points. Everything else is fully restored or improved upon. Here are the high points of what you end up with:

  • 3.8-liter normally aspirated flat 6 (993 based engine)
  • 425 bhp with 340 lb. ft. torque
  • 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds; 0-100 mph in 8.5 seconds
  • Top speed of 170+ mph
  • 917/930 Porsche Brembo calipers and rotors with stainless steel braided lines
  • Extensive body work with lower lip spoiler in front and active speed-sensitive rear spoiler
  • Integral backbone stiffening struture with developmental carbon fiber “second skin” concealed roll structure

Porsche 911 Singer Design productionYou also get some great creature comforts like a lightweight electric a/c system, updated sound package including Sirius satellite radio, Garmin GPS and Bluetooth and iPod connectivity. The interior is a great modern take on a retro look. Weight, with all of this, is 2,400 pounds. Singer themselves sum up the car best:

Sure the Singer 911 looks like a vintage 911, and maintains some of the same character, but the connections its exterior evokes is unique.  There are hints of 911R in the taillights and bumper design, as well as RSR in the bulbous flares, or even some 911ST in the profile, but there is no mistaking that upon closer inspection the Singer 911 is a very different interpretation of these vintage themes. Beneath that “long hood” emulating skin is the heart of the last air/oil cooled 911(type 993) and a host of the latest technology that places the Singer 911 in a place all its own.  The car protects the romance of the original 911 concept but radically modernizes it into an ultimate 911 expression for the enthusiast who can never forget time spent behind the wheel of the car that started life as the 901 Concept.  Forty-six years later, the Singer 911 prototype is the ultimate validation of the model that defined a brand, a segment, and became a cultural icon to generations.

Porsche 911 Singer Design productionSinger has stitched in Brembo stoppers on all four corners along with Bilstein coilovers to put all that power to the pavement, and the interior is laced with the kind of kit that you’d expect from a vehicle with a price tag that knocks on the door of $200,000. Look around the cabin and you’ll see a Heuer chronograph, leather weave seats and an RSR steering wheel, among other goodies.

At this moment Porsche 911 Singer is made in 2 exterior colors:

  • Singer Racing Green
  • Singer Racing Orange

Other colors available as per Customer choice.
