Dynamics and Lightweighting Study, 2017, by Singer Vehicle Design and Williams Advanced Engineering. A project based on a Porsche 964 series 911 powered by a 500hp four-valve, four-camshaft naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine developed by Williams Advanced Engineering. Use of magnesium, titanium, carbon-fibre and “other advanced materials” have reduced minimum vehicle weight to 990kg. Other details include the new underbody and surface aerodynamic enhancements. Singer plan to build 75 cars at a dedicated Singer facility housed on the Williams campus near Oxford in the UK


Jowett Jupiter Mk 2, 2011 (1954). The Jowett Jupiter model was introduced in 1950 and plans were being made for a MK 2 model when the company went out of business in 1954. A Jowett enthusiast discovered the Mk 2 plans in 1979 and in 2008 panel maker and Jowett restorer set about creating the car Jowett had been unable to produce. The car was completed in 2011 using the chassis and engine of a wreaked MK 1a Jupiter.  Like all Jowett’s the Jupiter is powered by an alloy horizontally opposed 4 cylinder engine driving the rear wheels, a similar configuration to the Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86. The car is on display at the Jowett Car Club stand at the 2017 NEC Classic Car Show
