Singer 911 production car debut – Click above for high-res image gallery

We first spotted Singer's 911 Concept in Monterey last year at the historic races at Laguna Seca. From afar, it just looked like another classic Porsche 911, but a closer look revealed much, much more. We met up with Singer and the car back in Los Angeles for a photoshoot and were astounded at the creativeness, attention to detail and absolute beauty of the car. Singer told us that they were hoping to build a production version, but with a targeted selling price of a little under $200,000, we feared that the concept might be the only one ever built.

Thankfully, as it turns out, there are at least a few wealthy car enthusiasts with a taste for a hand-built, vintage 911 with carbon fiber bodywork, custom interior and a modern Porsche flat-six power. Singer completed its first production 911 late last week and delivered to its lucky new owner at their facility in Sunland, CA with a small gathering of those who helped make the car happen.

The car is finished in Singer Racing Green with a Grow Green and Terra Cotta striping package and is heavily optioned with a 410 horsepower 3.82-liter flat-six, Brembo brake package, Bilstein coilover suspension, RSR steering wheel, Heuer chronograph clock, leatherweave seats and more. Building of the second production car will start later this month with a third beginning in October. Check both the mean green machine and the stunning orange Laguna Seca model in our high-res galleries below.

      I'm not a Porsche fan, but if I were to buy one (and if I had a cool $200k sitting around) I'd buy that.

        How can you not be a Porsche fan?!
      • 4 Years Ago
      THIS IS AWESOME!!! I would buy one in a heartbeat if I had the cash and it would be my DD
      • 4 Years Ago
      Make it black and I would be in love!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Excellent work! I really like the weaved leather work. Just curious, but where is the air filter?

      I love this car, I would rather have this than a new Porsche. The colors are wild, but thats the point. Back in the early 70s they did the crazy colors. I am sure you can get one in any color you want. I would want orange... or maybe white with red stripes...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Excellent choice!! I love that combo myself. I would also like black with orange accents...
        • 4 Years Ago
        @BoxerFanatic... This from the guy with the bright red Legacy GT?!? :)

        That would be a sweet looking car too... a very "Gruppe B" look. But for me, I just love the bold colors for a classic 911. The new ones I prefer in the more muted tones, like that GT3 RS in charcoal with the red accents.

        BTW, I actually love your car, where did you even find a red one?? I wanted one, couldnt find even one in the entire state. Never even seen a red one, all of them are black or silver...

        I was thinking about the classic german racing livery of alloy silver with a medium gray stripe, and a black and red interior. Maybe with a couple of other red details, just to tie in to the interior color.

        With black or gray window trim, and light-fixture trim, and body-color headlight trim rings. Not a complete no-chrome look, but somewhat minimal.

        Very strong point on the Porsche colors.... which is just one of the reasons I love those cars.

        Wow, you went through a lot to find your car, guess thats why I couldnt find any for sale in all of Florida! Even the ones I see around are always automatics, with taupe interiors. If I got one, I would want one exactly like yours.

        i'd take one with the classic Martini livery.

      Dear haters:

      The machine you're looking at, the Singer 911 is one of precious few cars built in our era likely to be seen on the podium at the Pebble Beach Concours in/around 2050.

      The rarity, the beauty of the car itself and the experience of the drive make this one a car to collect. Even the rarest Ferrari's and Lamborghini's are built in numbers too large to be compared to the Bugatti's and Delahaye's of the thirties.

      That's pretty badass, I love the color too.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The Green/Orange Stripe paint-job doesn't do anything for me, but I really like the orange one.

      I love the car, except for one part- modern 3.8. Now don't get me wrong, a 997 sits nearly on top of my car wish list, but part of the charm of the older 911s was the air-cooled motor. IMO, that sound is a great part of the character of the car. Guess I'm a bit old fashioned in that sense, but hey, if you're going to modernize an old Porsche, I'm glad they did it the correct way and used another Porsche flat-6. Basically, the idea rubs me the wrong way, but execution makes up for it. I don't think it's worth $200k, but I'd definitely take this over a GT-R or any iteration of the 996.

      and +1 for the Mexico Blue."


      Agreed my 1972 911 T is still a fine car plus, no air bags, no traction control, no 4 wheel drive, no anti-lock a minimum of emissions control. Sure not as fast but still a blast to drive. And it's just about the same color as the one here.

      My new Panamera is pretty awesome also. Best part the look on the back seat passengers look at full G!

      What's the cap on the right rear quarter for? Drew?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Apparently it's the oil filler cap.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Just by looking at the pictures it looks really well bit, with top notch fit and finish. I love this thing, but I'm biased because I love most Porsche.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The only one built..may be a good thing.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Nope.
        • 4 Years Ago
        From the linked article: The complete reincarnation includes chassis stiffening, new active aerodynamics, and a lightweight integral backbone structure and roll cage to improve torsional rigidity. Most interestingly, nearly all of the steel body panels are replaced by full carbon fiber composite bodywork candy-coated in Singer's exclusive "Racing Orange" paint.

        So basically this car is heavier vehicle that cost $200K with a basic interior and people lust after something like this? Really?
