Rob Dickinson’s Singer company are likely making the nicest and most detail oriented 911s on the market right now, and I have to say that the new white Singer Porsche 911 is absolutely stunning, i especially love the contrasted Green leather buckets. Of course these cars are tailor-made for their customers, with every attention paid to the detail of the fittings, colours, and materials used. There is a price to pay, however in my honest opinion—-it is money well spent for a 911 of a lifetime.
I’ve spoken to Rob in the past, and he’s told me that the Singer 911s start at around $190k, and go up to over $300k depending on the demands of the customer.
you can go to the SINGER site and download ALL of the Singer 911 photos in a single file, if you click the link at the top of their page:
Nice kit car.
you wish, buddy.
Ok, nice bastard car. I think these machines are for people with more money than they know what to do with. For what one of these cars costs, you could have a real honest to god 911 Carrera RS that would have resale value and matching numbers–and by god THAT is the “911 of a lifetime.”
It’s just a slick custom and a hodge podge, no matter how tasteful, with no historical value. And when you die, it will be hard for your relatives to sell this car for anything close to what you paid.
eh….I don’t think this car is about purity or value or collectability….it’s about the pursuit of the ‘perfect’ 911…..being someone who admires and aspires to own a 911 at some point….I feel the Simger 911 hits more high notes in terms of imagination, performance, and build quality as compared to a mainstream collectable 911 like the Carrera 2.7 RS. I don’t care about collectability…
put a $225k Ferrari 458 next to this Singer 911 and I will LOL at the Ferrari and walk to the Singer 911.
Yeh, I would rather have the Singer over the same car anyone else could buy with a large enough stack of cash. I wouldn’t buy it with the thoughts of my heirs in mind either. They can make thier money the same way I do; working hard at it! Having a bespoke car to your particular specifications is what its about, just like a custom tailored suit is far better than an off the rack model.
well said, Jon….i completely agree. There’s something far more interesting about a tailored, bespoke (and better performing) machine rather than the ‘popular’, expected ideal classic.
