Would you drop 1/2 a Mill. on one of these?




I'm sure some of you will have seen this already. Don't know about you, but this is just car porn to me

No way Jose. I stopped watching after hearing the price in disgust.

Great car, looks like pure sex... I like that it is a fully modern car in a classic shell.

But for 500k, you got to be a real big Porsche 911 nut to go for it. Given the amount of work that goes into the build, the price seems about right. Maybe they can bring the price down once they recoup R&D costs.

Isn't the M3 the equivalent collection of what works well implemented by BMW engineers for under a third the price?

I have to agree with the comments on price. It's just way out of my league.
Simply stunning cars though... (IMO)

No, but it's a work of art nonetheless.

Singer 911

Gorgeous and impressive project. Though I'm not a Porsche guy I can appreciate thea art and technology that went into it. And no doubt it would be a blast to drive and impressive to the Porschephiles. If I could barely afford it, I would not get it. But if I had a car stable, this is a strong candidate.

If money isn't a subject than why not. However, the reality is I can't afford to pay 1/2 million for that even though I love 911 very much.

If my net worth had three more 000 added, sure I would. I would also own a Ferrari too.

If I had the money, I would buy a 997 GT3RS 4.0 and daily drive it. I would then use the leftover money for repairs and maintenance and medical bills because my back would be broken.

If I had the cash, I certainly would. It's unassuming (I'm not the flashy type), yet literally every single detail has been gone over and addressed in the best way possible, and the net result is just fantastic. It's a rare case where the parts are great, and their sum is even greater! This car is one reason I'm in the market now for a 964.

Half a mil huh? So basically it costs more than a gt2 rs, gt3 rs 4.0, AND house downpayment combined. Its exterior is basic dated 964 look with hardly any clue to indicate to the public that it costs as much as it does. The interior isn't any better either; basic spartan 50 year old interior, with hardly any modern luxuries or creature comforts. It isn't particularly powerful, making only 350 hp. It isn't light either, weighing about the same as a modern FR-S despite that the FR-S has modern safety and some luxury updates to the interior. It isn't particularly fast in a straight line. Nor is it very good on a track either. And with everything on the car being bespoke, good luck finding parts to repair it if something goes wrong.

This is just a car for gazillionaire rabid porsche fans who would by anything, even a piece of turd if it had the porsche crest on it for a price of $500000. You can save yourself $499500 and buy the Singer's sister car:

I'd love to have one but I'm not the target market financially speaking (and I suspect few m3post members are). Remember that they have only made about 10 of these cars so far. They are for $500M+ net worth enthusiasts. Think Larry Ellison, Jay Leno or Jerry Seinfeld not joe blow from the internet who likes cars.

That said, I do think these cars are spectacular!
