A far cry from the 911 Classic by Singer, the DLS or ‘Dynamic Lightweighting Study’ take a more holistic approach to improving every element of the iconic 911. Where as the Classic sought to deliver the ultimate overall experience of a 911, embodied in an understated – but still carbon fibre bodyshell, the DLS project set out to understand, embrace and accentuate each of the intricacies that are unique to the Porsche 911.
Far from intending to deliver a modern driving experience, the DLS is still very true to its origins. A hands-on, analogue interface, with a manual gearbox and race-oriented 4.0 naturally-aspirated flat co-developed with Williams. Consulting the likes of legendary Porsche engineers Hans Mezger and Norbert Singer during the development phase, Singer and Williams have worked in unison to heavily fettle the air-cooled powerplant. In production trim, it now offers around 500hp with a rev limiter coming in at 9,300rpm. With the engine starting life as the standard 964 3.6 litre, works were carried out to revise almost every moving part. Titanium con-rods, aluminium throttle bodies, carbon intake trumpets, a bespoke carbon airbox, fuel injectors with twin injectors and a ram-air induction system fed by inlets in the iconic rear ¾ windows that keeps the profile so pure and true to the classic 911 style. If somehow you’ve dismissed this car so far, the startup of the Inconel and titanium exhaust will serve an overdue wake up call.
