1993 Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Abu Dhabi event, 30 November 2019. Estimate:$800,000 - $1,000,000 ‘The Fiona Commission’ built in 2016One-owner example with less than 4,500 km since its rebuild by SingerExceptional specification, highly optioned, including 4.0-litre engineUndoubtedly the most desirable reborn, reimagined, and redesigned 911 Arguably the world’s most beloved sports car, the Porsche 911 is a car that has endured over fifty years of production throughout eight distinct generations and over one million cars produced. Capable of tackling the daily commute, running to the shops, spirited Sunday drives, or a podium finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, die-hard Porschephiles would argue that there is no challenge a 911 cannot overcome. It is an icon of German design and engineering and a car that has consistently been the industry gold standard of performance. Over the years, countless 911s have been modified and upgraded by their enthusiast owners or aftermarket tuners to create their idea of the perfect 911, but perhaps no company has come as close to perfection as Singer. Founded in Los Angeles in 2009 by Rob Dickinson, a die-hard 911 enthusiast and former lead singer for the British rock band Catherine Wheel, through Singer, Dickinson sought to create the ultimate air-cooled 911, combining aspects of 911s across all eras of air-cooled production. Starting with a 964-generation 911, Singer painstakingly ‘reimagines’ the car to create the equivalent of a ‘greatest hits’ album of Porsche’s most iconic model. Perhaps Singer themselves say it best, in that they aim to achieve a 911 with ‘the delicacy of the ’63 original, the race-bred chic of the ’70s, the solidity of the ’80s, and the sophistication of the ‘90s…reimagined in a singular jewel-like car’.Owners are given the basic choice between either coupe or Targa body styles, rear- or four-wheel-drive formats, and a 3.6-, 3.8-, or 4.0-litre engine. The cars are completely disassembled and taken back to bare metal, with carbon-fibre panels replacing the original, including the front and rear fenders, bumpers, bonnet, and engine decklid. From there, the sky is truly the limit when it comes to customization. Each Singer built is truly a bespoke creation, tailored to the tastes of each specific owner, with no two cars being alike. Dubbed ‘the Fiona Commission’ by Singer, this particular car boasts a beautiful and well-thought-out specification. At its heart lies Singer’s 4.0-litre flat six-cylinder engine mated to a G50 five-speed manual transmission. The 4.0-litre engine produces 390 bhp at a redline of 7,200 rpm and 315 foot-pounds of torque. Built by Ed Pink Racing Engines retaining the 964-generation block, it utilizes numerous bespoke internal components, including pistons, cylinders and cylinder heads, crankshaft, cams, connecting rods, oil pump, throttle bodies, and intake systems. According to Singer, 911s equipped with the 4.0-litre engine can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in less than 3.3 seconds, leading to 100 mph in 8.2 seconds. The car is painted Midnight Blue, complemented by Fuchs-style wheels with matching brake calipers. Singer’s larger-size steel Brembo brakes are fitted, along with an Ohlins adjustable suspension. Importantly, the Fiona commission also boasts the desirable options of the exposed centre-mounted fuel filler cap, as well as the exposed oil filler, a homage to the 1972 911s. Importantly, the car is also fitted with a carbon-fibre roof.Inside, both driver and passenger enjoy track-specification seats and rollbar trimmed in cognac leather with an Ivory headliner. Creating a slight contrast are the dash, door cards, and kick panels, which are trimmed in Espresso leather. Furthermore, the transmission tunnel and the interior doorsills are finished in Midnight Blue to match the exterior paintwork. Keen eyes will also note the wooden 917-style gearshift knob and the car’s instruments, which are done to replicate those in 1964–1967 911s, utilizing light green font. The car is also outfitted with air conditioning, stereo with iPod connect, and subwoofer. It presently shows less than 4,500 km on its odometer since its rebuild by Singer in 2016.Today, Singer has reimagined more than 100 cars, and it speaks to the company’s attention to detail, philosophy, and the overall quality of the cars that so few examples have become available in the secondhand market since their inception. These are treasured automobiles, cars which are often driven and enjoyed by the individuals lucky enough to commission them new. This rare opportunity to purchase a Singer should not be passed by, and especially one built to such a lovely specification as the Fiona.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/ad19.
