…The Singer 911 is a classic Porsche re-imagined?

Singer Vehicle Design

The Singer 911 is “the love child of a 1967 911S, a 1973 911 Carrera RS and a 1996 993 RS”.

Singer 911

The company, Singer Vehicle Design, starts with an ‘80s-era 911 donor car, and then strips it down to just a bare shell to begin building their creation from the ground up.

New bits and pieces include chassis stiffening, aerodynamics, a roll cage, and full carbon fiber bodywork.

The heart of the monster is a 3.82-liter flat-six making 425 horsepower and spinning to 8,000 RPM on its way to powering the 2,400-pound car to 60mph in just 3.9 seconds.

Suspension upgrades include Moton shock absorbers, Eibach coil-overs, and Smart Racing Products adjustable sway bars, with four-piston brakes from a Porsche 930 bringing the whole thing to a stop in a hurry.

All told, it’s an excellent package that will appeal to any classic Porsche fan that wants top of the line performance in an old school wrapper.

…It’s TGI Friday: Final Ninja Zero?

Nitrome

Nitrome is a DYH favorite, and one of their newest games, called Final Ninja Zero, is an instant classic.

Final Ninja Zero

The goal is to make your way through various levels by throwing ninja stars, swinging and climbing from a rope, and using stealth when necessary, though as always, it’s much harder than it sounds.

Do you have what it takes to be a Final Ninja?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Playboy Archive?

Playboy Archive

Believe it or not, Playboy has put 53 of their classic issues online for FREE for you to browse through.

The site uses Bondi’s new web viewer, so the whole experience is rather fluid, and the available magazines span the range from classic to current, so you can see how Playboy has changed over the years.

…It’s TGI Friday: YouTube Street Fighter?

YouTube Street Fighter

YouTube Street Fighter is the classic game you know and love but played with a modern twist.

The game consists of an intricate series of videos that allow you to control your player using one of four buttons. Press a button at the right time, and you’ll make a move on your opponent and score some damage points. Move too late however, and you’ll be on the receiving end of a blow that will take some of your own health. Once one of the players has had enough, there are even ending sequences to finish him off.

The animation itself is actually done with a combination of action figures and stop motion, though it’s surprisingly smooth for a video game that’s hacked together out of YouTube clips and the clever use of linking buttons.

Give it a shot and see what you think:
