Scott Blattner had a Porsche 911 964 of 1990 and wanted to make some improvements, so he knocked on the door of Singer and American specialists have proposed a radical change using the base of his car.
We knew that they had been working on this project for a while, in which the most striking was the four-liter boxer engine capable of developing 500 horsepower, but now they have finally discovered the whole and left us with their mouths open.
Using the base of 964 of 1990, they have managed to create a beast in which Williams Advanced Engineering together with the famous engineer and designer Hans Mezger, have achieved the unthinkable.
This beautiful Porsche 911 mounts a four-liter, atmospheric engine, with four valves per cylinder and 500 horses, which is also air-cooled.
