A North American Debut at Pebble Beach
Here's some exciting news, as Car Week is upon us. We've previewed many of the events of Car Week and even have a full schedule of events here. Every year, Car Week brings unveilings of the latest in exotic car engineering and super car style.
Earlier this year, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, boutique restoration house, Singer Vehicle Design, unveiled two of their Porsche 911s reimagined that reflected a partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering. Each demonstrated the results of a three-year Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS) in partnership with Williams.
Car Week is going full mega mode this year at the North American premiere on the grounds of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. From the Singer Vehicle Design press release:
A public showing on the globally renowned concept lawn
of Pebble Beach Concours, Sunday August 26th . DLS is a client-inspired collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering -- part of the Williams Grand Prix Engineering Group -- and a formation of technical partners, in pursuit of the most advanced air-cooled Porsche 911 in the world...
...As announced in November 2017, the project began when Singer client and Porsche enthusiast Scott Blattner, requested lightweighting and high-performance enhancements for his 1990 Porsche 964. To meet the goals defined in collaboration with Scott, Singer engaged Williams and
globally-renowned technical partners to engineer a selection of restoration and modification services strongly oriented toward lightweighting and dynamic gains.
“The Dynamics and Lightweighting Study has been years in the making. To see the results, representing the ongoing pursuit of our client’s vision for their ultimate air-cooled 911, is so exciting. We’ve worked relentlessly to present a machine that visually celebrates the past while acknowledging the future – both inside and out. It’s incredibly exciting to play a role at historic Pebble Beach – as a small company, we’re thrilled to share our innovation on the concept lawn
amongst world debuts and one-off prototypes.”--Rob Dickinson, Founder and Creative Director
