Petrolicious - Porsche Singer

I love my 993, but I swear if I win the lottery this is the first thing I'm buying.

Same. Or if it turns out Steve Jobs was my dad and they've just been trying to track me down. Singer with the Williams motor. Picking the color will take me years.

What are we looking at in terms of price? I would guess anything from 6 to 7 figures since Singer can do just about anything one can conceive.

I wonder if he gives a discount if you request that? I'd like the wheels in a nice shade of Catherine.

And that's really the only color you can get, and you will ask yourself, "could this be any more black?", and the answer is, "none more", none more black.

Actually, looking at it a little closer, I think that wide-body kit on the classic body looks quite gaudy, the Turbo models handled it much better with their whale tail, more aggressive air-dam/splitters, etc. I still like the concept, but I like that Ruf mid-engine body better and I think that does it a little better, but I know Singer does a lot of variations and is basically whatever you want, so this is probably not an overall criticism.

Probably the only Singer that will be driven and not sitting on a pedestal. Sick.

Yes, Singer is the way to go if one has the means. Driving enjoyment at its purest. There is a video of Chris Harris at the Singer shop, getting a tour and speaking with the founder. Really good one to watch for the thoughts behind this idea.
