With a monumental price tag and a level of individualization not seen on many other cars, every new 911 by Singer revealed is an event to celebrate. Singer brought two of its finest to a display at this year’s Pebble Beach concours, and they are as jewel-like and well-crafted as we have seen from the California restoration house.
Usually, owners who commission these near-perfect cars opt for a fixed-roof coupe, searching for a more “pure” Porsche experience than one found in an open-top 911. The owner of these two projects went wild, dropping what is surely a very, very heavy sum on both a 911 coupe and a gorgeous 911 Targa.
The “Minnesota” coupe is stunning, and the “Luxemburg” Targa is nothing short of spectacular. As is the case with most 911s Singer works on, the Targa is designed with a level of craftsmanship and care few are able to muster with this kind of consistency. Beginning with a 964 911 Targa shell, Singer’s basic Ed Pink 4.0-liter flat-six engine is mated to a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission for the Targa. The interior is upholstered in a special “seven-color” leather weave pattern, complementing the Deep Orange exterior. A carbon fiber roof sectional is upholstered in a navy canvas material, protecting the cabin when the weather turns sour.
The “Minnesota” coupe is a more traditional example of what Singer is known for. This packs an older 3.8-liter flat-six engine tuned by Cosworth, good for a monumental 350 hp. Inside, the owner chose a more unique blue color for the center tachometer over the more common orange usually used by Singer itself.
