Will This Porsche 911 Reimagined By Singer Sell For More Than $1,000,000 When It’s Offered At Auction?
There’s a long waiting list for a Porsche 911 ‘Reimagined’ by Singer, and it’s rare for owners to sell them—in fact, this is the first to come up for public auction. Known as the Mountain View Car, it was commissioned by a California-based Porsche collector and completed by Singer Vehicle Design in 2016. When it’s offered at the Gooding & Company sale at Pebble Beach on August 16-17 it’s estimated it will fetch $800,000 – $1,000,000.
The focus of the Mountain View Car was reduced weight, so there’s no sunroof, radio, or air-conditioning. As with all Reimagined Singers, it’s based on a 964-series 911, and features Singer’s 4-liter, fuel-injected, air-cooled, flat-six built by Ed Pink Racing Engines, Getrag six-speed transaxle, upgraded suspension with Öhlins dampers, and massive Brembo brakes. It produces about 390hp, but the car’s total weight—with all fluids, full tank of gas, and driver— is less than 3000lbs.
Many of the body panels are in carbon fiber, and finished in Downton Blue with Singer Racing Orange wheels, stripes, and lettering. All brightwork, including the neat little bumperettes, are finished in nickel. Inside, the painted floor panels have been left uncovered and the carbon fiber bucket seats are trimmed in Tobacco Brown leather, while the door panels and dashboard feature basket-weave upholstery similar in style to those of early 911 S models. Sadly it’s seen little use since 2016, so we hope the next owner gets to use it some more.
