with a deep understanding of the history of the brand – just check out their 964 DLS custom – singer vehicle design creates a contemporary interpretation of a porsche 911 safari rally car. the modern off-roader pays homage to their successful racers in the ‘60s with a version fit to complete in the dakar or baja 1000.

requested by a long-time client, LA-based singer vehicle design were asked to transform a 1990 porsche 911 964 safari into an off-roader that demonstrates all-terrain exploration capabilities. they enlisted the expert advice of richard tuthill of oxfordshire, UK-based tuthill porsche, whose speciality of preparing race-ready porsches for both off-road and race track have recently won events like the east african safari classic and FIA WRC R-GT championship.

to reduce weight, the design adorns a carbon-fiber-paneled body. an FIA-specification roll cage helps strengthen the monocoque further. the porsche was then lifted high above ground with a long-travel suspension with twin five-way adjustable dampers at each wheel. inside, FIA-certified bespoke competition seats have been added along with a dual spare-wheel carrying system in the front trunk and rear storage area, a GPS race navigation system, and a rehydration system for driver and navigator.

beneath its carbon-fiber body, the singer porsche 911 safari rally car is powered by a twin-turbo 3.6-L air-cooled flat-six that offers 450 hp and 569 Nm of torque. the power is delivered to all four wheels through a sequential five-speed transmission and front, center and rear mechanical limited-slip differentials to push through sand, snow and mud. monobloc disc brakes complete the design alongside BFGoodrich all-terrain tire-wrapped aluminum alloy wheels.
