Singer built its 300th Porsche

Singer Vehicle Design, a US-based company renowned for updating and customizing Porsche 911 cars, has celebrated the creation of its 300th vehicle. This unique project, named Sotto, started as a 1990 Porsche 911 Targa. The car was modified to enhance its retro styling even further. Its carbon body is painted in Resistance Blue, while the removable roof panel is dark blue. A transparent strip with the "Porsche" logo adorns the car's sides. Five-spoke Fuchs-style wheels complemented with substantial carbon-ceramic brakes complete the exterior.

The interior is bathed in vibrant orange leather. This includes the door panels, seat upholstery, central console, and the lower part of the front panel. The tachometer dial also features this bright hue. Nickel inserts embellish the central sections of the seats.

The car is equipped with a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine from Singer with air-cooling and a titanium exhaust system. This 390 horsepower engine can rev up to 9000 RPM. The client who ordered this vehicle opted for a five-speed manual transmission, though Singer also offers a six-speed version.

Interior of Sotto
Founded in 2009 by Rob Dickinson, former frontman and guitarist of the British rock band "Catherine Wheel," Singer Vehicle Design's 10,700 square meter production facility in Torrance, California, houses manufacturing, painting, assembly, and finishing workshops under one roof.

In 2022, Singer decided to halt accepting orders for Classic Study models, like this Porsche 911, capping production at 450 units. Additionally, the company produces coupes and convertibles styled after the 1970s Porsche 911 Turbo.
