This Old Porsche is Better Than Any New Porsche

Each Singer Porsche takes between eight and ten months to complete at the company’s small facility in Los Angeles. Only a handful of these bespoke, reimagined Porsches are sold each year, so the arrival of each new one is an event. Officially call the ‘Manchester’ 1990 Porsche 911 Coupe modified by SVD, it gets its namesake from its owner’s home city in Manchester, England and is the follow-up to Singer’s first 911 Targa from July.

Singer calls this new color ‘Wasabi,’ and like the Targa, it’s one of the first Singers to get the new larger 4.0-liter flat-six from Ed Pink Racing, which is mated to a six-speed transmission and limited-slip differential. Because it’s headed to England, it’s also one of only a few right-hand-drive Singers. The chassis sits on adjustable Öhlins dampers and each body panel is sculpted in carbon fiber. Much of the exterior brightwork is nickel-plated, which has become a Singer calling card.

The immaculate interior features a unique orange, green and cream weave on the dash and bucket-seat inserts. Everything you see and touch has been restored to like-new condition or updated with carefully selected replacement parts.

If you want one, have a donor 964-era 911 at the ready and at least $400,000. Be prepared to wait to. Singer says it currently has orders pending from the United States Hong Kong, Moscow, Canada, England, Germany, New Zealand and Norway.
