Little more than a year ago, I got to see a Singer 911 firsthand. My experience that day was etched into memory and today, I’d like to share it with you.
I first heard about Singer Vehicle Design about two years ago. Passing my time on YouTube, I came across a video with Chris Harris very predictably taking a white Singer 911 sideways around a track. Harris proclaimed it to be ‘sensational’ and ‘in many ways the perfect car.’ Naturally, my interest was piqued.
A few weeks back, I had my first experience in an aircooled Porsche, a Carrera RS no less. Here are my thoughts.
It’s 5 a.m. and I’m rubbing my eyes as the rising sun turns the sky into beautiful shades of blue and gold. I’m standing in a residential community in Dubai, waiting for a car. I haven’t gotten much sleep the previous night, so to say I’m excited is an understatement.
A few minutes later, a white Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS materialises before me, shattering the silence with its aircooled loping idle. The red font on the doors, the ducktail and the foglights all say the same thing; this car is anything but ordinary.
