What’s left to write that hasn’t already been written about Singer and his pure pornographic creations?
The company responsible for the most wanted Porsche 911s on the planet continues to amaze us with his latest cars: the orange ‘Luxemburg’ Targa and the gunmetal-grey ‘Minnesota’ Coupe cars.
As with every 911 that came out of Singer’s workshop, each car is named after the place where the really lucky owner lives. In this case though, both cars happen to have the same owner, with the Targa named after the Luxemburg small township in the owner’s home state of Minnesota.
The two stunning creations will make their first public appearance on the lawns of Quail Lodge with Singer expecting a further eight customer-owned Singer 911s to come down to Monterey –the most to ever be seen within one geographic region at the same time.
“The Minnesota coupe and the Luxemburg Targa are clear examples of the wide range of services we can provide our customers to enjoy,” said Rob Dickinson, founder and creator of Singer Vehicle Design. “What seemingly began as simple color customization and engine desires has emerged into a truly bespoke means of extending a customer’s yearning for ‘special wishes.’ We’re deeply committed to incorporating nearly anything our clients can visualize and we deem feasible.”
The Targa car is based on a 1990 964 and features one of the most unique upholstery options inside, the so-called Tyler Tartan. This includes a seven-color leather weave pattern, with two oranges, four shades of blue and one cream to compliment the Deep Orange exterior and the Navy Blue leather found in the cabin. The carbon-fiber removable roof has also a Navy canvas covering, with the car also coming with a factory folding black top.
The iconic Porsche Targa hoop features a special nickel plating which gives a warm golden hue to the nickel coloring and two instead of the traditional three louvres to distinguish the car from lesser Porsches. Power comes from a 390hp 4.0-litre flat six engine which spins up to 7,200rpm and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The Coupe is based on a 1994 model and matches its Gunmetal Grey paintjob with a Tobacco Brown interior. One of the interior highlights is the special blue tachometer that was requested by the owner instead of the usual Singer orange. This time power comes from a 350hp 3.8-litre flat-six matched to a six-speed manual gearbox while the chassis has been further strengthened with a roll bar.
Special cars don’t come much more special than Singer’s carbon-bodied 911s. The company has delivered 50 of them since 2009 to customers from all around the globe, with another 80 of them already waiting in line for the magic Singer touch.
