Steve Austin was the titular character in the 70s TV show \u201cThe Six Million Dollar Man.\u201d As the story goes, after an accident, Steve was rebuilt as the world\u2019s first bionic man\u2014better, stronger, and faster.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSinger Vehicle Design recently announced that after a client commissioned study, they have taken a 1990 Porsche 964 and made it better, stronger, and faster. (They didn\u2019t disclose the price tag like they did on the six million dollar man, but who knows? The figures might be similar.) Scott Blattner, the owner of the Porsche, brought the car to Singer to perform a Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS). Partnering with Williams Advanced Engineering, part of the Williams Grand Prix Engineering Group, Singer restored and modified the car with the intent of lightweighting it for impressive dynamic gains.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe study included adding a Porsche four-valve, four-camshaft, naturally aspirated, 500HP air-cooled flat-six engine from Williams Advanced Engineering. Underbody and surface aero performance was also optimized. Changes to the suspension and weight reduction methods using magnesium, titanium, carbon fiber, and other materials as well as enhanced geometry dropped the vehicle weight to 2180 pounds. And that\u2019s just the beginning of the enhancements. Michelin, BBS Motorsport, Brembo, Hewland, and EXE-TC also lent their expertise to the project.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe results of the study are only being made available to 75 people, but no doubt the Porsche will come out better, stronger, and faster than it ever was before.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
