Singer Vehicle Design purchases fully road legal pre-1994 Porsche 911 Coupes for the basis of construction. When its transformation is complete, the newly born Singer 911 retains the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of its donating ‘parent’ 911 and is legally registered, operated and licensed in the same manner. We see this process as a modest contribution to the recycling culture and one by which old 911s are reclaimed and perhaps saved from an uncertain future.
The unique Singer 911 carbon fiber bodywork is constructed from premium ‘pre preg’ carbon fiber and is correctly vacuum bagged and baked to a temperature of over 250 degrees. These are true carbon fiber parts benefiting from the attributes of extreme strength and light weight.
The areas of the car that are replaced with carbon fiber parts are as follows:
- Front fenders
- Front bumper
- Front hood (bonnet)
- Rear fenders
- Rear bumper
- Rear engine deck lid/speed sensitive active rear spoiler
- Roof (a carbon roof is not fitted if a sunroof is specified)
Note: The doors remain in steel in order to retain side impact resistance as they contain the impact safety beams fitted on later model 911s.
