Singer Unveils The Sublime Naples Commission Porsche 911 Restomod

Classic Cars / Comments

This carbon fiber-bodied beauty is a wheeled work of art.

Hot on the heels of the Kent Commission, Singer Vehicle Design has unveiled the gorgeous Naples Commission, a carbon fiber-bodied Porsche 911 built for one very lucky customer.

This sublime restomod is one of Singer's Dynamics & Lightweighting Study (DLS) vehicles and was restored by Singer's UK-based team. Finished in visible carbon fiber, the 911s sleek curvaceous body looks spectacular in the lightweight material and is uplifted by Lime Green side stripes and lettering.

Powering this retro delight is a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six. The air-cooled engine features titanium valves and sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Magnesium wheels, also finished in Lime Green, are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Thanks to Williams Advanced Engineering, Singer was able to move the engine slightly forwards, providing better weight distribution.

The Naples Commission 911 is festooned with aerodynamic trickery. Round back, you'll find the dropped channel in the roof which, together with the bridge spoiler, enables air to flow to the vehicle's rear and towards the ducktail spoiler.

The positioning of the spoiler and the diffuser have been carefully selected, with all the additions providing improved downforce at the rear of the car.

The central intake, located above the front splitter, highlights the engineering brilliance of Singer. This directs air to the oil coolers on either side of the vehicle. Rather interestingly, oil from the flat-six motor is sent to the coolers up front before being redirected to the engine. Cleverly, the hot air is released via vents situated just ahead of the front wheels, so as not to mess with the rear diffuser.

Visually, the exterior of this reimagined Porsche is just extraordinary. The interior is just as alluring, though, with lightweight carbon fiber seats trimmed in a bespoke suede and leatherweave combination. The seats are finished in Lime Green and boast a black contrast strip that breaks up the vivid hue.

The rear cross-brace, along with the rear interior panels, have been trimmed in matching leather. This treatment extends to the dashboard and door panels. The tachometer is decidedly decadent and has been finished in 18-carat gold. Similarly, the Singer badging on the rear decklid has also been finished in gold.

Singer is no longer accepting orders for the reimagined 964, so this Naples Commission is probably one of the last vehicles to leave the factory. While demand remains high, the company wants the vehicle to remain exclusive - and keep values high.

Singer's next endeavor is the Turbo Study, a glorious tribute to the original 930 Turbo. Powered by a 510-horsepower 3.8-liter flat-six, this turbocharged beauty is expected to deliver the driving thrills we've come to expect, but with a focus on luxurious, long-distance touring.

It's not the only thing we've got to look forward to. The Los Angeles-based specialists recently previewed the wonderful Turbo Study convertible. "The first Porsche, the Sport 356/1 known as 'Number 1,' was a cabriolet, and high-performance, open-roof glamor has been part of the story ever since," said company founder, Rob Dickinson, at the time.

Like the aforementioned Turbo convertible, the price of the company's latest creation remains unknown, with each vehicle's final cost differing due to the varying specification. Just by looking at the Naples Commission 911, you know it was expensive - and worth every penny.
