Chances are someone will pay up.
California-based Singer Vehicle Design has forever changed what it means to be a Porsche 911 collector and fan. Classic-bodied 911s were never hard to come by and, over the past few years, have seriously increased in value. But those with extra deep pockets found the Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer far too tempting to pass up, despite the six-figure price tags. These completely rebuilt 964 generation-based 911s are considered by many to be the ultimate old school 911 restomod and, not surprisingly, demand grew quickly.
So quickly, in fact, that the waitlist is now reportedly about three years. Made to order, hand-built craftsmanship takes time, after all. But if you're unwilling to wait that long, then there are other options such as this.
Up for sale in Canada on Autotrader is this 1991 964 reimagined by Singer. Total mileage: 370 miles. Some digging around online reveals this particular 911 was commissioned by Ontario-based Pfaff Auto, a luxury car sales and rental company. Sounds like a great find, right?
It is, but there's one significant catch, the price. As previously noted, a typical Singer Vehicle Design 911 restomod is a six-figure investment, oftentimes reaching $500,000, but it appears that high demand has pushed very lightly used examples to ridiculously high prices. The Autotrader listing has this car's price pegged at $1.3 million CAD, or about $1 million USD. Is it worth it? It depends on whether someone is that desperate, though there's still an awful lot to love about the car itself.
Power comes from a 4.0-liter flat-six and there are also all-new brakes, suspension, interior, and body panels. That interior is quite something as well and the attention to detail, like always, is extraordinary. Note that wooden shifter knob. Literally everything inside and out - and under the rear deck - is handcrafted.
Given all of its custom-built features, plus its unique exterior color choices, it's really not so surprising this car's value has doubled since 2017. Will there be a bidding war? Who knows, but if you're interested we'd highly recommend to act fast. After all, this isn't the first time one of Singer's stunning 911 creations has sold for seven figures.
