The Singer 911.
Singer Vehicle Design, are based in Los Angeles, California. They restore and build (to me) what is the ‘perfect porsche 911′.
The first porsche 911 that caught my eye was a porsche 911 (964) featured in the start of the film Bad Boys, where Martin Lawrence goes, “You damn right it’s limited. No cup holder, no back seat. Just a shiny dick with two chairs in it. I guess we the balls just draggin’ the f*ck along.”.
Singer Vehicle Design strip the 964 chasis down to its bare bones and rebuilds the car from there, by hand. Looking at the spec sheet you know these guys are serious, using aircraft grade sound insulation, 993 turbo brakes, motorsport and military spec connectors and wiring, a Cosworth developed n/a flat six (built in various sizes); these are only several of the defined changes made.
The only downside to the work of passionate enthusiasts? A price range between $190,000 to $300,000 (unconfirmed) or as quoted from Chris Harris’s Drive video (below), “depends on the spec.. as low as high 3’s, mid to high 3’s but as high as 500.” That’s $500,000 according to Mazen Fawaz, owner of the Singer 911 (no.3).
Isn’t the idea of a dream car, the dream of owning one in the future? If so, I hope Singer will still be around when I have made the necessary funds to put my order in. Singer Vehicle Design, please wait for me.
When you have 30 minutes spare, I implore you to watch this video (below). Turn it to 1080p, dim the lights and get the popcorn; I have never enjoyed a car review more than this one.
