WHEN THE FAT LADY SINGS.

As of now, Singer and Williams will be creating (no more than) 75 client-commissioned cars at the new Singer facility in Grove, Oxfordshire, for their new DLS project. But who else is involved I hear you cry? Well, it's a bit of a who's-who really - Norbert Singer, Hans Mezger, Marino Franchitti and Chris Harris. Oh, and factory support from Michelin, Brembo and BBS Motorsport.

Fat lady's ample buttocks.

These first renders show the car in a lovely flat green 'Absinthe' with a rather bold Blood Orange interior. Should sound astonishing too - four-valve, four-camshaft, naturally aspirated 500 hp (same as new 991.2 GT3), air-cooled (unlike the 991.3 GT3), flat-six Porsche engine - with... magnesium six-speed transmission, uprated suspension and bespoke Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. Word on the Straße is that it will cost over £1.3 million, but what a special thing it is.

Personally, I think it looks magnificent from the rear and top, but less so from the front. The extended wheel arches look a little clunky to my eyes (on the front especially) - I would have liked to see those extended wheel arches riveted on like the 993 GT2. But then again, if you have over £1m to spend on a 911, I'm sure they would entertain that little whim. Most of all, I love that this car exists. There's other cars I'd buy for £1m+, but I'm not the target audience. This is for Porsche enthusiasts that want something tailored to their EXACT needs, that already probably have 20+ P cars in their stable, and are happy to have a mega duck tailed car from this Century. Singer, we applaud you.
