Rennlist at Monterey Car Week

Rennlist brings you the North American debut of the Singer Porsche 911 DLS at Monterey Car Week.

The crew at Rennlist is out and about in Monterey, California, for the 2018 edition of Monterey Car Week, bringing you all of the most awesome Porsches, Singers, RUFs, and other assorted rear-engined German goodness to your screen of choice.

Our first stop takes us to The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, where Singer Vehicle Design brought over its latest and greatest with the North American debut of the Singer Porsche 911 DLS.

Having made its world debut at the silver anniversary of the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this summer, the 911 DLS (Dynamics and Lightweighting Study) exchanges its red livery for a lovely white with gold Porsche lettering on the doors and duck-tailed rear bonnet. Under that bonnet, of course, is a 4.0-liter, naturally aspirated flat-six developed by Williams Advanced Engineering and consultant Hans Mezger. The boxer punches hard with 500 horses charging out of the gate through the rear pair of BBS forged mags wrapped in bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s.

And all that power will cause this 911 DLS to sing to the heavens. The car uses tons of carbon fiber to help achieve a weight of 2,182 pounds, from the custom Recaro seats and Momo steering wheel, to the body itself. Even the AC and heating system is lightened to help this engineering wonder float like a feather. But worry not about the 911 DLS flying down the highway without wings, for the advanced aero includes a roof-channel and roof/rear spoiler to help the diffuser and duck tail keep the car firmly planted to the tarmac.

The 911 DLS is quite the masterpiece from Singer, serving as one of a few milestones achieved by the company in 2018. As founder Rob Dickinson told CarBuzz a while back, Singer is also celebrating its 10th year of business, and the delivery of its 100th commissioned 964 911. Not a bad way to celebrate making amazing 911s, indeed.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
