Singer All-Terrain Competition Study (ACS)

If your a fan of Porsche cars then you’ve heard of the name Singer at least once. But incase you’ve haven’t heard of them, heres a quick one liner of what they’re all about.

Singer Vehicle Design takes an older generation (964) Porsche; restores it and creates a piece of art.

Typically they would make create cars like this.

A beautifully re-imagined Porsche with a more aggressive stance, wider arches, a beautiful interior and an engine that truly belongs in a museum.

But the other week they introduced this beast, the All-Terrain Competition Study (ACS).

Singer x Tuthill Porsche

Built as a collaboration between Singer Vehicle Designs x Tuthill Porsche the ACS is the ultimate 911 Safari. 

This commissioned vehicle took inspiration from legendary Porsche's like the 911 SC/RS and the Paris-Dakar 959s and the client wanted an air cooled Porsche that can "compete in off-road racing and to demonstrate extensive all-terrain exploration capabilities". So, Singer and Tuthill gladly made their client's vision come true.

“We’re confident that this machine will appeal to off-roading enthusiasm of all kinds, whether it be in the pursuit of professional competition at the highest level or adventure and exploration. ACS advances Singer’s capabilities in forced-induction, all-wheel drive, off-road ability and dynamic response – all of which will support our ongoing mission. This pursuit of focused competition studies is something you will see more of from us in the future.” - Rob Dickinson - Singer founder and Executive Chairman.
