    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    Congrats on the decision Crayphile. Having a Singer must be the dream of every motorhead including me evenif I'm not a die-heart Porsche fan.

    Almost all of the suggestions are nice but my favorite one is ice green (as Christian suggested) with dark brown interior.

    Whatever you choose, I'm sure it will be one hell of a car. kiss

    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    I like researching this kind of stuff (and living vicariously through you! I'd have a Singer near the top of my bucket list as well). So here are a bunch of other cars, most not the colours you may have thought of, but that I think could look good or great.

    One could argue my Oliv Grun resembles a bowl of sick, but I'm sold on it!

    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    This is a very unique car. The color should be unique and allow it to standout from all other cars. All too often I see older Porsche's with ho hum colors. They get lost among all the other cars.

    This car needs to scream I am special! I like your orange choice.kiss

    @nberry  - I agree it needs to be unusual, but that can also be achieved with something more subtle than orange I hope.

    @ Mithras  - thanks for all the suggestions  - Singer have some colours close to the paler greens you have shown

    @ Porker  - keep it coming Smiley

    @davew (cincy) - to your question  - I don't think there is a itch option to the rear windows

    How about Dolphin Grey?

    Though a cool vintage blue hasn't been done I don't think and would look great with a brown or historically correct dark red interior.

    Azure Blue

    This cements my vote for blue Smiley

    Yeah but the Singer is an elegant car. It's sporty and raw if you want it to be, but let's be honest, this is as much a piece of art as anything you'll find in a museum. In any case pale greens as well as shades of silver are IMO much less dynamic than a darker richer blue.

    Have a look at Bahama Blue, I think it would fit a Singer perfectly.


    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    Here are a few more Azure Blues. The first ones from original 356's and the last two from a PTS 991.2 Turbo. The Turbo seems to be darker though it is a very light dependent colour.

    That does look good. Is that San Diego for the Singer web site?


    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    How about a nice rich dark solid grey?
    Something like this comes to mind:

    Or of course:

     

    I know you might be looking for something more flashy, but I could imagine applying some details in a contrasting flashy color would make for a nice, subtle yet striking presence?

    Oh, wait:

    So I guess the grey will not meet the "not done yet" requirement... :'-(
    However, if you could make the decals in 997 RS green, and change them to the original lettering ("Carrera"), that would look lovely I think!

    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    Yes  - I stated off with greys including Slate grey for the historical connection and the whole Steve mcQueen thing. I just don't think it pops enough though, and as you say its been done before.


    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    May I suggest acid green or something similar? :)

    Another fantastic color is also Dalmatian Blue, another name for Oxford Blue, apparently. 

    Imagine this hue in Singer wide body and with a cream or tan interior.... cue the drool emoticon.

    Probably for the markets where "Dalmatian" is more inclined to be associated with black and white dogs than with blue seas?

    Olive green is my vote!


    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    964 bodies seems quite receptive to bold colours.
