So as promised Singer Vehicle Designed unveiled their first Targa 911 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed; a decision that seemed questionable at first given the sheer the number of supercars that turn up at this event and how hard it is to get attention in their presence. But Singer Porsche 911 Targa was hot enough to stop any onlooker in their tracks.
As James May once put it, what Singer does is like a love letter to a car – a highly romanticized interpretation of what in crude terms can be described as restomoding. But it’s not restomoding, that word is too cheap for a Singer 911. These cars are works of art, which is why they take so long to build and cost a tremendous amount of money.
The Singer Porsche 911 Targa unveiled at Goodwood is doubly hot owing to the fact that it’s the first open-top car they’ve done, and because that Targa roof puts the bespoke interior of the car on prominent display. All the other yummy Singer features are present as well – those sweet buffed-up fenders, the neat and minimalistic bumpers, the gorgeous headlights, and the unique active rear wing.
Powering the Singer Porsche 911 Targa is a Cosworth-tuned 3.8-litre flat six unit with nearly 350 horsepower connected to a six-speed manual gearbox. Just like the exterior, the interior is a reinterpretation of the original 964 covered in high-end leather and garnished with retro-looking dials, bespoke seats, and a rev counter that goes up to eleven!
