Based on the 964-generation Cabriolet, it gets 930-inspired styling and 510 hp.

Singer Vehicle Design offers seemingly infinite levels of customization, but the company has never “reimagined” a Porsche 911 Cabriolet. All of the cars that have been remade as a part of this series have been based on 911s from the 964 generation, specifically the coupe and targa body styles. That is, up until now. Singer’s first reimagined convertible is this 964 Cabriolet, which was redesigned to resemble a 930 Turbo.

Singer’s reimagined Porsche 911 Turbo coupe debuted in February, and this car is essentially just a convertible version of that model. Even so, it represents a major step forward for the company, as this is the first of their vehicles to offer a roof that can be retracted completely. Before, the only way to enjoy the open air in your Singer-tuned Porsche 911 was to purchase a Targa. Never again.

Singer’s reimagined 911 Turbo Cab features the same eye-catching aesthetic upgrades as the coupe, including custom carbon-fiber bodywork and a world-class retro interior updated for everyday use. Supporting it is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo air-cooled flat-six engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that routes power to the rear wheels. You can lower the fabric soft-top with the push of a button without even getting out of the car.

Singer’s reimagined Cabriolet, like the coupe, offers customization options to meet the needs of the individual driver. There are 450 standard horsepower, with an increase to 510 available. There are two different suspension setups and even different seats to choose from. This Cadiz Red vehicle has the more comfortable “touring-focused” suspension and a 510-horsepower engine. It also comes with carbon-ceramic brakes, sport seats that can be adjusted to your height, and accents made of wood.

In a statement, Singer founder Rob Dickinson said, “high-performance, open-roof glamour has always been a part of the story,” alluding to the fact that the first Porsche, the Sport 356/1 known as “Number 1,” was a cabriolet. “I’ve always wanted to do something to honor that part of Porsche’s history here at Singer, and the announcement of our Turbo Study seems like the perfect opportunity to do so.”
