If you’re into classic Porsches, the names Singer and Luftgekühlt will likely leave you salivating. Seeing both of them in the same sentence, though, is bound to elicit an even more primal reaction.
For those less intimately familiar, Luftgekühlt is an annual celebration of air-cooled Porsches. The fifth such gathering just took place in Torrence, California. And Singer Vehicle Design was on hand to showcase its latest commission.
The restomod 911 wears a dark-blue topographical livery that depicts the contours of the hills around Los Angeles. More specifically, the Mulholland Drive – one of Southern California’s most legendary driving roads and the site of illegal night rating in the 1960s and ’70s. The vehicle also features a quartet of rally-style auxiliary headlights (the better for lighting up the canyon roads at night) and a rather unique ducktail spoiler at the back.
Unfortunately that’s about all we know. The tuner hasn’t released any further details or images of the interior. But it appears to have a roll cage inside, wheels that’d look at home on a Mini (if they weren’t so fat), Michelin rubber, and twin center-exit exhaust pipes. Given the theme, we’d surmise it’s been commissioned by an owner in the LA area.
Singer typically works its magic on 964-generation 911s. That was the model made in the late ’80s and early ’90s, in between the original version and the 993 that was the last air-cooled generation. Singer gives its conversions a more classic look and feel, with immaculate attention to detail and each built on commission to the customer’s specifications.
