For the love of P. #4 - Singer Porsche

The ultimate Porsche.

Whether you pronounce it with one syllable or two, your favorite car has been an early 911 with a hotted up motor. It's gotta be one of those bright colors, not quite psychedelic, but certainly eye catching and classic. "Ach!" I hear you exclaim, "but what of reliability?". Of course. Every nut and bolt, every piece of rubber, of metal and fibre remade, reformed, or replaced. "Ach Lieber! But what of the performance!" How about modern brakes, modern tires and sizes, but all in a classic mold? Well, they've gone and done it.

Singer Vehicle Design has brought a classic shape into the modern world. Nearly every panel has been reworked with carbon fiber, or retrofitted with modern verisons of relatively ancient technology, all in the name of Porsche. Just look at this frontend! Projectors retrofitted into original glass from the 70's, and look at the trick way those foglights were integrated into the marker lights next to the turn signal. The attention to detail is unbelievable.

"Restored, Reimagined, Reborn"

I'd say they nailed it.

Check out founder Rob Dickinson's interview on Adam Carollas "Carcast". It's a great podcast for automotive enthusiasts, and he's got a bit of a softspot for the euro crowd.
