In theory, a Singer-modified Porsche 911 makes absolutely no sense. After all, there's no way a sports car from the early 1990s, even a perfectly restored one, is worth $390,000. That's nearly enough money to get you a new Ford GT.
But the cars Singer works on get more than a restoration. They're reimagined. The entire car is reworked, modified, tweaked, and improved from the ground up. Everything is made from the highest quality materials. In the end, what you have is just as much a piece of art as it is a car. And it's worlds better than the stocker in pretty much every way.
Because is such a small operation, though, it doesn't do its own engine work. Instead, that job is outsourced to . Better known for its monster drag racing engines, EPRE is the only group of artisans trusted to build the air-cooled powerplants for Singer's masterpieces.
Recently, caught up with Frank Honsowetz, EPRE's general manager, for a tour of the shop. Check out the video below to get a glimpse behind the scenes at all the work that goes into building an engine that's worthy of being used by Singer.
