The company's first Targa is on display this week.
When it comes to turning air-cooled Porsches into gorgeous works of art, nobody does it better than Singer. At Monterey Car Week, Singer is bringing a variety of its air-cooled Porsche 911s for buyers to ogle over, including its first Targa build—the Cupertino. Singer names its vehicles after the location the car is destined for, which in this case is Cupertino, CA. The Cupertino is finished in Singer’s own nickel-plate and is the perfect color to celebrate the classic Targa configuration launched in 1965.
As per request, the Cupertino has been restored with a collapsible soft roof, as well as a one-piece carbon-fiber top. The exterior color is referred to as “Casablanca Beige” and is comparable to the color of the early 1980s Porsche 930 turbo. To complement the Cupertino’s exterior styling, the Porsche comes with Fuchs-style wheels with a white nickel finish on the barrels with closed lugnuts, as well as black-painted wheel centers. The interior is fashioned in “Tobacco Brown” leather weave and features grommets, sport seats, along with folding rear seats.
The 4.0-liter engine in the rear produces 390 hp and has been developed by Ed Pink Racing Engines to pin drivers to the back of the seat. As with all Singers, there’s a lot of attention given to the little things, like two air filter louvers instead of three louvers, as on the original 1965 Targas. Singer’s air-cooled Porsches are some of the prettiest things on the road and this new Cupertino has to be one of our favorites.
