From West to East Coast via Amsterdam with this Singer-restored Porsche 911
The Porsche 911s ‘reimagined’ by Rob Dickinson’s Singer Vehicle Design outfit in Los Angeles have long been considered the ultimate expression of the ‘restomodded’ classic, inspiring young and old Neunelfer enthusiasts across the world. Despite having delivered north of 200 cars, the waiting list for Singer’s restorations remains lengthy.
Restored, Reimagined, Reborn
And need we mention the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study, which is being developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering in the UK and promises to be among the most exciting Porsche 911s ever conceived?
In short, we’d bend over backwards to get our hands on one of the exquisitely executed Porsche 911s restored in California’s Sun Valley, which is why our hearts skipped beats when this example emerged for sale in the Classic Driver Market with our friends at Copley Motorcars in Massachusetts.
Everything is important
Christened ‘The Amsterdam Commission’, this Porsche 911 began life as a 964 Carrera 4 before receiving its 4,000-hour makeover. In addition to the voluptuous Fashion Grey Pearl bodywork, the all-wheel-drive coupé received a four-litre normally aspirated flat-six kicking out 390HP, a six-speed manual Getrag gearbox, a single-mass flywheel, huge Brembo brakes and Hella bi-xenon headlights.
In our opinion, the pièce de résistance of every Singer-restored Porsche 911 is the interior and The Amsterdam Commission certainly doesn’t disappoint on that front. A sumptuous cocoon of olive-green leather and suede, every last surface and switch has been carefully considered and beautifully crafted from the highest-quality materials to ensure a delightfully tactile experience for the occupants. Furthermore, this car has the optional sliding sunroof – a feature you’ll be incredibly grateful for on those summer Sunday sprints from Los Angeles to Malibu.
