Automotive forums are a wonderful resource for any gear head, irrespective of the brand. For example, I found someone to appraise my Porsche, an insurance company that quotes proper coverage, got advice on repairs, and upgrades. On a recent Canadian Rennlist thread, one of the members posted the upcoming Singer Automotive launch party and guest list at Pfaff Porsche. I took note of the date and time and showed up. Being the former photo editor for Provinz magazine, it was great to meet some familiar faces and cover the Launch.
Founded in 2009, Singer Vehicle Design’s vision is to take a customer’s existing 964 model Porsche 911 (from 1990-1994) and perform both restorative work and cutting edge modifications to update the cars’ performance, aesthetics and modern day use and ability in an attempt to optimize its strengths, while preserving the essence of the original. The restoration has one goal. Preserve a timeless air-cooled Porsche 911. The renewal process, a work of pure craftsmanship, takes more than 4,000 hours to complete.
“Our company’s heritage is based on utilizing the ultimate in automotive design, engineering and industry standards to meet and exceed the vision of our fine clientele,” said Rob Dickinson, creator and founder of Singer. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Pfaff Automotive to extend our passion throughout the Canadian market and share our love for the 911 with their own clientele.”
Having seen the cars first hand, all I can say is Wow! Bespoke Air-cooled brilliance for people that enjoy three pedals of driving perfection. I hope the pictures convey the emotion and beauty of these rare and magnificent cars. Singer vehicles must be seen to be fully appreciated!
