Extravagance Equates With Perfection as Two Customer-Owned Porsche 911s, Reimagined by Singer Vehicle Design, Display Breathtaking Style and Exquisite Results in Optimization
As the annual Concours season begins, Southern California-based Singer Vehicle Design joins the ‘best of the best’ in the collectible world, with two of the brand’s newest east coast commissions at two highly anticipated Florida showcases – the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and The Palm Event. The North Carolina Car and The Florida Car, (referencing their geographic homes) will both hold court within the Singer display areas, acting as distinct examples of the finest Porsche 911s to be ‘Restored, Reimagined and Reborn’ by Singer Vehicle Design and blending the brand’s unique perspective and meticulous craftsmanship with client inspiration.
The company’s heritage is based on utilizing the ultimate in automotive design, engineering and industry standards to meet and exceed the vision of its fine clientele. According to Rob Dickinson, creator and founder of Singer Vehicle Design, and ex-car designer and former rock musician, achieving the ‘best of the best’ in every modification is the only standard to maintain, and exceed.
“We began in 2008 with a vision to offer aficionados the opportunity to re-imagine their 911 without compromise,” said Dickinson. “And now, with more than 40 commissions completed, and a significant global following, we’ve expanded our promise to remain obsessive in the details and keep striving for more innovations along the way.”
Dickinson’s mantra, ‘everything is important,’ is the baseline for each and every element within the handcrafted backbone of the company. “From the very start, we believed that if we could somehow create an environment that thrived on the best craftsmanship and creativity in customization, selecting only the best resources along the way, along with all the best elements if one could only have just one vehicle to drive – then maybe, our unique celebration of Porsche would be regarded with the same obsessive passion by enthusiasts too.”
And, as the world continues to take notice of a little restoration shop in Southern California that has provided a re-birth of sorts to old and tired Porsche 964s, a new fan base continues to emerge on a global scale.
Singer’s philosophy – creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces to each customer’s desires within perfectly optimized air-cooled Porsche 911s – continues to move forward with each new bespoke restoration. With limited availability and an 8-10 month restoration cycle, vehicles have more recently been commissioned by Porsche owners in Hong Kong, Moscow, Canada, England, Germany, Taiwan, New Zealand, Norway and the UK.
