There is such a thing as perfection

Singer teams up with Williams and Hans Mezger to produce 75 lighter, faster 964 restorations. What if Singer worked on restoring and modifying my beloved 27-year-old Porsche 964, with the assistance of an engineering concern born from the world of F1? How would such a car look and how would it perform?” This was the […]

Gunther Werks 400R driven: best ever 993?

“I said they were out of their minds. Bespoke bodywork, running gear and everything else that goes along with building a custom car in that short a time. ‘We’re not a TV show, we’ll not do it in a week’”. That was owner of Rothsport Racing, Jeff Gamroth’s response when the call came from Peter Nam at Gunther Werks. They didn’t do it in a week, as Gamroth said, this was not a TV show, but the sheer persistence of Peter Nam and his team saw the 400R to go from concept to the car I’m sitting in today in just six months.

I stumbled across the project mid-summer, Gunther Werks drip-feeding a Facebook group some details of what would become the 400R. If you’ve never heard of the firm before that’s no surprise – I hadn’t. Gunther Werks is a new company, but it’s not come from nowhere. Nam owns Vorsteiner, which specialises in aftermarket wheels and carbon fibre styling for premium manufacturers, Gunther Werks is a natural progression of that. With it Nam has been extremely clever, assembling a team of highly respected names in the air-cooled Porsche community to create the 400R. The a-list roster includes Jeff from Rothsport Racing, Joey Seely from E-Motion Engineering and Carey Eisenloher.

The idea itself, is a simple one. Take a 993 and develop it as if Porsche hadn’t replaced the 993 with the 996 twenty years ago. Not as a mere Carrera though, but as a GT3. Different to the usual backdates, then, this is more of a continuation, bringing the car forward rather than modernising mechanically with a reverential stylistic nod backwards. The 400R is a 993 for today, the past blast forwarded into the present, using modern technology to enhance and improve, all without denying it of its original appeal and driver appeal. Building on it. That was a key goal, Nam determined to create the very best 993 as it could be now, focussed on driving, Gunther Werks demanding that its customers don’t buy it as a trinket, but as a car to be used. And used as intended – hard.

If the concept sounds easy the execution is anything but. It is genuinely difficult to comprehend that the 400R was a standard, pre-Varioram Carrera 2 back in May 2017. To create it Gunther Werks tasked its team…

The Ultimate Porsche Comes From California

When Rob Dickinson, the lead singer for ’90s British rock band Catherine Wheel, moved to Hollywood in the early aughts, he drove a 1969 Porsche 911 that he lovingly dubbed the “Brown Bomber”—a classic car he restored to serve as a lightweight daily driver. Before long he was approached all over town—not for his autograph—rather […]

When It Comes To Singer, The Devil Is In The Details

There aren’t many folks who own a Singer Reimagined Porsche 911 who are comfortable sharing their car with the world. These cars are usually kept locked away in secret, revered as jewelry pieces in a collection. They aren’t often sold on the second-hand market, and they are only occasionally shown off at events, car shows, or track days. Singer have crafted what is perhaps the ultimate expression of Porsche, and yet they’re only really known to their individual owners. Thankfully, vintage car collector, and Singer owner, Matt Euson has given a full video interview to Petrolicious. Not only that, but he actually drives the thing, taking the car to the office, to pick up his kids from football, or on date night. Give it a click, you’ll surely enjoy his take on the gorgeous car.

As Euson mentions in the video, it’s hard to tell a Singerized car from a ‘regular’ backdated hotrod Porsche from a distance. As you get closer, however, you’ll notice that the car is something special, because the devil is in the details. Singer re-works every single part of the Porsche for maximum usability and visual presence. Anybody with a modicum of mechanical skills can put together a nicely turned out 964 backdate with a 4-liter engine, but unless you get the details right, it’ll never be just right.

When you look at a Singer-special Porsche up close, you can tell you aren’t looking at just another ‘normal’ Porsche. The paint, the trim, the exterior lights, it’s all just perfect. They spend the time making the car as special as it possibly can be from the outset. The paint is miles deep, the color palettes are specially crafted, and the interiors are absolutely works of art. More than anything, we’re ecstatic that this car, The Indiana Car, is used as a Porsche was intended. They’re meant to be driven.
