2011 Singer 911
It is hard to believe, but the Porsche 911 exists despite Porsche's own
attempts to eliminate and replace their beloved icon. This rear engine, 2+2
coupe has defied attempts (type 951 and 928) to terminate its allegedly
dated concept only to be re-invented in superior form and bask in a renewed
wave of enthusiasm.
The 911 brand is so compelling to consumers that even cars that are not
911's (Types 930, 964, 993, 996, 997) have been badged as such since 1990.
Such is the influence of a model and a brand within Porsche that as the
vehicle made vast technical leaps, even wholly re-invented it remains a
911. The original 911, with its air/oil cooled engine was built from 1964
to 1989. This model was succeeded by two much more evolved 911's that were
still air/oil cooled; the type 964 and 993. The 964 and 993 are still
lauded for their own technical brilliance, but the vehicles gained weight
and complexity addressing safety, (airbags) emissions, and feature/ options
concerns. One could argue that the last air/oil cooled 911's, though
brilliant, paid a price for their sophistication.
However, 1998 brought the first 911 to rely on water cooling for the
engine, and it introduced the first all-new and larger body shell to the
model since 1964. In addition, it was the first 911 to feature an engine
with four valves per cylinder which would help it meet power demands and
emissions requirements. While the early 911's were beloved for their unique
sound, a baritone growl that was a product of the engine noise itself which
could easily escape through the thinner castings and cylinder walls (not
surrounded by water) and projected by the fan atop the motor. In the
interest of compliance, performance, and evolution both sound effects were
eliminated. After surviving 35 years, this integral piece of the 911's
character had been severed from the car's persona.
Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going
examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the
most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to
drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up
