Although the new Porsche 911 is really quite marvellous, James takes a spin in a 911 modified by Singer Vehicle Design - a custom built tribute car that cherry picks the best bits from 50 years of 911 history. And it creates something really quite special.

      5:06 May brings up a very good point that is wrong with the motoring world as of now. Nowadays people are trying to hit bhp/whp up to 2500. (Mostly in America) like what exactly is it the point of it. All you’re doing is removing the heart of the car that makes it have a soul and added a modified heart that basically built for high horsepower that won’t even turn a corner without hitting something. Like May said “it’s the sensation of performance” I guess that’s what the old 911 Porsche enthusiasts really want and it makes sense. But what do I know. I’m just a 16 year old that has a passion for vehicles

      I wonder if Jerry Seinfeld has one. Too bad he never drove the reasonably priced car.

      I am a poor 20yo and drive a 10yo shitty Suzuki Kei, but for some reason the rear seats in that Porsche 911 bother my OCD! You'd expect more from a premium German car! All they need to do is throw them out!

      Both cars are brilliant but seriously tho, Porsche would be stuck building the 356 if they were listening to the "purists"

      I hate electric steering wheels and also I hate singer. The singer range is made from some jokers with no proper research and development! I would NEVER trust some company in L.A to develop a car.

      250k i believe is less than the eagle speedster costed anyway i though that was half a million (pounds!)? I dont like 911's I think they are boring but I can appreciate the workmanship thats gone into this and I actually think it looks good. Well done to Singer for making a non fan like a 911

      Numbers in performance don't matter squat. When you are driving such a beautiful handcrafted car as this you want to take your time so people see it. Its called posing and I would do it a lot in this.
