Singer Vehicle Design, the California company that restores and “reimagines” older Porsche 911s to where they’re some of the most desirable vehicles ever cooled by air, just released images of its latest work. And the “Mulholland” car is the wildest one yet.
As is fitting with the name, the model is decorated with a squiggly map of the famous Southern California driving road, Mulholland Drive. The car has apparently been running around car shows for a while, though it looks like Singer has released very little information other than the photos it threw in its “Luftgekuehlt 5" Facebook album yesterday.
I reached out to Singer, and a representative told me via email that this is a one-off made for a customer, saying:
We’re actually not releasing any insight on this car just yet. However I can share that this is the finest example of our ‘special wishes’ program - working in sync with a client that asked us to help him craft a true canyon carving vehicle that had a rally car emphasis - - particularly celebrating the racing traditions made famous on the legendary Mulholland Drive.
Auto journalist at CNET’s Roadshow Steven Ewing mentioned a few details on his Twitter a few days ago, saying this was Singer’s “Mulholland” car, named after the road whose topographical map makes up the reimagined 964-based Singer’s paint scheme, and that it’s got a fixed rear wing:
The metal rear wing supports look great, as do those squiggly lines covering all the body panels. Is a nod to the Fancy Car Driving Road that is Mulholland Drive in California is a bit stereotypical for an old 911, especially one reimagined by Singer? Sure. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to ogle at these photos:
