The Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer never gets old.
They say that two things in life are certain: death and taxes. But we also know that every time BMW launches a new car, it's bound to create controversy; every time an automaker announces a full-scale switch to EVs, a child loses a balloon, and every time Singer reveals a new build, it's bound to be a masterpiece. Take the Kent Commission, for example, the latest build from the Porsche 911 restomod specialist.
While Singer recently ventured into the world of drop-top motoring after it stopped taking orders for its reimagined 964 and started showing off new models, it still has some older builds to finish, including the Kent Commission.
This is a right-hand-drive coupe with a 4.0-liter engine and is presented in Graphite Grey with light ghosted side stripes and Blood Red lettering. That gorgeous bodywork is made from carbon fiber, while the bumperettes on the rear feature a nickel finish.
The engine cover adds more Blood Red lettering along with brass badging, and opening it reveals the naturally aspirated air-cooled flat-six that is highlighted by a ceramic finish for the plenum.
A six-speed manual gearbox directs power to the rear wheels, and all four wheels come with closed lug nuts. Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires provide grip, while carbon-ceramic brakes with Blood Red calipers and white lettering bring the beauty to a halt. External fuel and oil fillers have also been added for a touch more retro style.
Inside, the owner has opted for lightweight carbon fiber track seats trimmed in Monarch Red leather with bespoke houndstooth centers for the seats and piano black on the seat backs. More leather can be found along the dash strip, and you'll find additional brass badging here and on the door panels. Other highlights include the sills and lower areas of the rear compartment trimmed in carpet with alabaster stitching. Gauges styled after those from early 911s have been chosen with a black background.
Once again, Singer has followed a singular guiding principle to an extraordinary outcome: Everything is important. We can't wait to see what customers specify for the Turbo Study.
