    Another cool car I'll never be able to own or drive... very nice. Not in love with the wheels. But, I don't like Singer's wheel solution either.

    In my view, if the fundamental concept is vintage inspired, smaller diameter wheels would go along way to support that.

    Not sure what to think about it. Nothing is Porsche on it.

    It is a copy/replica of a 911 body basically.

    Might as well design their own body if it isnt a real Porsche.

    listening to your comments.....I understand.....

    AR is staying true to his orig wheel style....I respect that

    and Im wondering why Porsche doesnt give AR any hassles?.......I mean I know he has manufacturing status............but he is copying P car body styles.

    I guess both AR and Singer only strengthen the P brand?...I would expect they both work w/ Porsche to some degree......must be a good relationship

    I just love the effort and level of skill and design here....and AR is a Porsche guy for sure but in his own way....awesome


    MM......what dont you like about the Singer wheel ?....I like it for that package

    Love how automotive writers wax breathlessly about these cars exclusively for the ultra wealthy. Alright, carbon tub and intelligent suspension design. But neither Singer or RUF place the engine in front of the rear axle where it should be, and for $800,000 they could have done more than simply mimic vintage Porsche styling. Nice car, impressive details, still less than it could be.

    at least Singer uses a Porsche tub.

    This thing is a frankenstein made to look like a carrera.

    If porsche has a patent on the 911 body design, they should act on it now.
