Default my singer 911 2015 restoration

i didn't want to be hi-jacking https://rennlist.com/forums/997-gt2-...storation.html thread, so i am going to start a new one for my own singer project.

i have already paid SVD deposit and got an allocation for December of 2015 (yes, it looks like they are pretty booked up)... there is a small chance they could get started on my car earlier, but i am not holding my breath... it takes about 10 month to finish the car, so I am really looking at Q2 or Q3 of 2016 for delivery.

the donor car has already been sourced by Singer and they arranged for me to take ownership of it. i am now a lucky owner of a 1991 Carrera 2 with a 3.6L engine and tiptronic transmission. given that car has over 100K miles, it is good that Singer will be breathing new life into it.

while not a fan of vanity license plates, i couldn't resist here and got a "964 SNGR" plate for this project.

next up: trip to Burbank in May to select colors and finalize various options... stay tuned.

This is a great project. All the best with it. Out of curiousity how did they source the car. And did they tell you what the ideal donor was before.

it sounds like what they mostly care about in a donor car is how straight the frame is and they measure it to make sure the frame is straight down to 2-3mm

Yes I sourced my car through Rob in 2013 after I put down my deposit. While struggling over color and leather I made an off hand comment if Dubai was available I would buy it. Well it was and I own it. This winter I sent Dubai back do we could take the engine from it and put it in my Minnesota #27 which is nearing completion. It has the 3.8 and it's plenty of engine. But I could not resist putting the 4.0L in Dubai which arrived at their shop yesterday(the completed engine). Both should be complete in the next two months. I don't think any car has made me smile more than the Singer, it is a blast.

Well, that just means you have to get another Singer, and then a RUF.

Congrats, can't wait to see it.

RUF cars are ugly and tasteless IMHO... or wait, do they make one of those inline 6 engines you thought Porsches come with?
