  • Jay Leno drives Singer's 100th re-imagined Porsche 911

    A Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer is true automotive art. It also happens to be built to perform at incredibly high levels, commands tremendous cash to purchase, and captures the hearts and minds of anyone fortunate enough to spot one in the wild. That is slowly becoming a a more likely proposition as Singer rolls out more cars. In fact, the California company has produced its 100th example and brought it to Jay Leno's Garage. Singer's Director of Client Relations, Tim Gregorio, stops by with the Lunar Silver Singer. He says that Singer started as a passion project and has since morphed into...

It's an air-cooled, 4.0-liter Porsche flat-6 engine that makes—wait for it—500 horsepower. Note, that figure matches the current Porsche 911 GT3 and this engine sings its sweet song past 9,000 rpm.
