    Re: Porsche Project Gold - the 993 turbo S re-imagined by Porsche Classic

    You cannot compare a Singer and a modern Porsche. One is art, the other is a transportation device.

    What would you drive if you could just have 1 Sportscar ? ( and I mean drivable every day) Even if you say the Turbo Exclusive (which is fantastic) it's nowhere close to a Singer product.

     

    Yes it would be the Exclusive.

    Apart from a few items, the Exclusive trumps the Singer in practically every category.

    AWD vs RWD

    607HP vs 500HP

    Modern interior with Nav screen vs well, old interior without nav screen

    PDK vs manual

    Comfortable and supportive 18 way seats vs race buckets lined with top shelf material

    Airbags vs no airbags

    Modern crash structure vs 1990s crash standard structures

    Singer cars are toys. Period. Owners of them have numerous cars and no owner of a Singer will drive it every day, there is just too much compromises. They are taken out to be driven once in a while.

     

    you forgot multiple time the price of an Exclusive very limited Porsche 911.

     

     

    Price of the Exclusive is like 300k US, a Singer is at least double that, actually almost triple that now.

    That's only for the gen 1 cars. They are not taking any more orders for those.

    The gen 2 DLS cars starts at 1.6mil.

    Well then someone else will jump in that fray and will do something similar...


    Re: Porsche Project Gold - the 993 turbo S re-imagined by Porsche Classic

    I hope someone does

    Maybe even  Outlaw?

    I agree the two cars are not comparable. At the same time I need to call BS on some of your other comments my friend Smiley. Singers are not that compromised. I know several including mine that are used regularly.

    You are one of those that really drives them!! smiley
