You know it’s love when someone takes a vintage sports car and pours in a lot of time and craftsmanship to make it more beautiful than ever. Singer Vehicle Design has always had a love affair with Porsche, so it’s no surprise they had decided to turn two 911s into an amazing work of auto art.
Singer Vehicle Design has always been about restoring cars for the benefit of auto enthusiasts around the world. The company was founded back in 2009 with a vision to “explore the creative possibilities within the vibrant world of the classic automobile.” It looks at every part of the classic car, from the chassis and body to the interior and colors. The whole point is to reinvent the car without robbing it of its innate power.
According to a report from Top Gear, Singer takes between eight to ten months to finish restoring a classic car. In the end, the company delivers a moving art piece. Recently, Singer had been commissioned to restore two Porsche 911’s. The result are two cars owners couldn’t wait to show off. For their part, Singer gets the chance to show them off, too. In fact, these new east coast commissions will be appearing in two upcoming events in Florida, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and The Palm Event. Moreover, these newly “restored, reimagined and reborn” Porsche 911’s have been given names The North Carolina Car and The Florida Car to reference their geographic homes.
The North Carolina Car is a 1991 Porsche 911 with a 4.0-liter engine and a 6 speed transmission supported by an Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes. Its exterior has been coated with dark blood-red paint, while its interiors have been covered in black leather weaved with four-way touring seats.
Meanwhile, the Florida Car is an older Porsche 911 model, although only by a single year. It has the same engine, transmission, brakes and suspension as The North Carolina Car. This time, however, The Florida Car has been painted in Hemingway Blue. Meanwhile, inside the car are sand beige with suede leather weave and track seats.
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will take place on March 11 to 13. Meanwhile, The Palm Event runs from March 18 to 20.
