Nothing arouses emotion quite like nostalgia- especially when nostalgia is served up in the form of a vintage Porsche 911.
Single Vehicle Design, renowned 911 specialists and a favourite of ours at OPUMO, continue to improve Porsche’s most prized possession through meticulous, fully-customised renovations. This week, the company unveiled the latest re-imagined 911s which will be debuted at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and the upcoming Palm Event (March 18-20).
The latest additions to the ‘Restored, Reimagined and Reborn’ programme, titled the Florida and North Carolina, are based on the iconic Porsche 964. As with all Singer projects, both models present the best of old and new as both are enhanced with new technology which propel the 911 into the modern day – most noticeably through a whole new carbon fibre body.
Utilising the 911 models from 1990 and 1991, the Florida and North Carolina boast a 4.0-litre engine and six-speed manual transmission alongside Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, carbon fibre interior panelling and full leather interiors for an added touch of luxury.
The love and devotion poured into each model is evident in the length of time it takes to complete one model, as each 911 takes the course of eight to ten months to finish. The two new models are presented in contrasting colours; the North Carolina is delicately finished in a Blood Red Dark with black interior, while the Florida is adorned in a Hemmingway Blue hue with contrasting Sand Beige leather interior.
