XCARFilms’ latest video is about Singer Vehicle Design. If you love Porsches and you haven’t heard of them, then you must watch this video. Based out of California, Singer rebuilds old Porsche 911s and turns them into some of the most desirable classic 911s money can buy.
Founded by Rob Dickinson, the company is known for their bespoke Singer 911 that has looks of a classic Porsche with slight spice and a properly modern suspension, brakes and other bits. The engine is also from a later model Porsche but retains the air-cooled setup. Here’s the story of Rob and how he shifted from being guitarist and a rock star to building utterly gorgeous Porsche’s for a living.

And that’s how the idea of building a bespoke 911 that looked like a classic Porsche but drove like best car in the world struck him.
