Namibian Skeleton Coast-Inspired Porsche 911 Restomod for Sale

Singer’s Mendacity in Car Design?

Mecum Auctions will put up for sale an exquisite 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe which has been redesigned by Singer at its Kissimmee 2024 auction, starting from today till the 14th of January.

As is typical for Singer, this motor vehicle is an exemplary masterpiece of lightweight construction. The carbon fiber panels encompass the wings, bumpers, front bonnet, rear trailer door, and ceiling. The past holder added some external extras, which include exterior fuel and oil caps, nickel plated reinforcements, plus a golden Singer logo.

The particularity of this example is the distinct hue, dubbed Namibia Yellow, with faint stripes and dark brown Porsche logo. Having visited Namibia on several occasions, we can see the colour matches those of the dunes at Sossusvlei. You don’t need to be a genius to figure out that the owner has certainly been there in the past!

This attractive car is driven by an Ed Pink manufactured 4.0-liter non-turbocharged flat-six, paired to a six-velocity mechanical transaxle transmission. Singer utilizes distinct motor companies, including Porsche and in particular the Williams brand for its DLS variation.

This remarkable motor makes this vehicle truly exclusive; after ending his long-running career at Ed Pink Racing Engines, Ed Pink recently retired, meaning this powertrain he carefully crafted is among the last ones he created. Throughout the build, individual throttle bodies were integrated and we can anticipate a roaring sound when fully engaged. Whilst Mecum hasn’t offered any capacity measurements, we’re supposing there would be in excess of 400hp.

Combining a thrifty body with wild power creates an exciting ride, and fortunately this car is fully equipped with the mechanism to keep it reigned in. It comes with a limited-slip differential, 17-inch Fuchs-style wheels of varied width wrapped in Michelin Sport 4S tires, plus Ohlins alterable shocks and Brembo’s red caliper-equipped cross-drilled and ventilated disc brakes.

Much of the cabin has been covered in ivory-toned leather, in tribute to Namibia’s Skeleton Coast. It offers a delightful pairing with the brass air vents, black matte pedals, our Momo Prototipo steering wheel fastened with regulation black hide, and an eye-catching orange surround around the tacho. This sophisticated mechanism can a reach a whooping 11000 RPMs – now that’s a feature definitely deserving for mention! Porsche increasingly going digital, which is no doubt likely to be quite the drawcard here.

This is one of the most extravagant Singer creations we’ve ever encountered, flaunting air conditioning, electricity-operated windows, plus a Porsche Classic in-car stereo. One could easily drive this vehicle on a regular basis, though it’s highly doubtful that its next proprietor will, because of how costly Singer-crafted pieces have become today. Way back in 2021, pristine examples were already costing more than one million dollars, and this one is anticipated to bring in $1.2-$1.3 million.
