Singer has revealed the result of its long-awaited collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering and two legendary Porsche engineers to take its famous ‘reimagined’ classic 911s to another level – and the car is on show at Goodwood this weekend. The LA-based company has become known for its high-quality, re-engineered restorations of the classic 1990s 964 version of the 911. However, in November 2017 it announced that it was working with Williams in the UK as well as former Porsche engineers Norbert Singer and Hans Mezger.
The result is a classic-shaped 911, still based on the 964, that has had every detail analysed and optimised using state-of-the-art engineering techniques, right down to the 2.7 RS Carrera-style ducktail rear spoiler. Could you ask more than a 911 with classic looks combined with technology that rivals the best any modern manufacturer could offer?

NBN Co is now projecting revenue of $3.9 billion in FY20, down $1 billion from its previous forecasts.
The government-owned company today released an update of its corporate plan which covers the period 2019-2022, revealing that it expected peak funding for the new network to be $51 billion — within the range forecast in its previous plan but still $2 billion higher than expected.
NBN Co said that it would seek the additional $2 billion from private sector debt. The revised peak funding projection follows a government decision in late 2016 to loan NBN Co $19.5 billion to make up a shortfall between Canberra’s equity contribution and the cost of the rollout.
NBN Co argues that the changes in its forecasts are a result of its focus on improving customer experience.
The impact on peak funding came from three sources, NBN Co said: The company’s changes

The first shooting happened less than a month after a military family moved in to their rented southeast Killeen home. Since the first time someone fired shots at their home on Vail Drive in March, the Schuknecht family has been terrified by two more incidents of drive-by shootings, including one on Saturday.
“After this last one, we went to a hotel for the night,” said Becki Schuknecht. “They had an indoor pool so the kids could have some fun without worrying about anything.” Two of the three incidents left at least one bullet hole in her children’s rooms.
After the first two incidents Schuknecht was able to shield the knowledge from her two youngest children. “By the third time, they all knew, which was stressful.”
The children sleep in their parent’s bedroom now. “They won’t go into their bedrooms or bathrooms because of the bullet in the wall. They’re terrified,” Schuknecht said.

“With Weinstein being just one of hundreds of thousands of ‘bosses’, as … Robert Ansell in this case is, it is easy to see the direct dangers of allowing cases involving sexual harassment … to remain confidential under the guise of arbitrations,” McLaughlin’s lawyer, Jonathan Sack, wrote in one of dozens of court filings collated by Fairfax Media.
Five months later, after McLaughlin had spent $US6000 on failed mediation, the case took another dramatic turn.
While she was on holiday in April, McLaughlin was told that another staff member would conduct her end-of-year appraisals as some of her team had complained about her.
She shot back an email: “This is a set up and you know it. And because I did not simply accept the paltry 1/2 severance policy of $73,000 to go away, I need to suffer the indignation of this blatant retaliation?”
She met the bank’s US head of human resources, Austin Dowling,
