Short and obvious answer: yes.
We’ve never hidden our admiration and, frankly, outright love for those Singer 911s, or more precisely, the . The attention to detail is incredible, as is the final price tag, which can easily balloon to nearly $500,000. Remember, each of those are custom-built to the owner’s wishes. This market trend has inspired other 911 specialists to open shop, but ? We don’t think so, especially after learning about Workshop 5001, courtesy of Drivetribe.
Jethro Bovingdon (one of the best-sounding English name ever) flew to Los Angeles, which is also home to Singer, to see what Workshop 5001 is all about. Despite being a new business, Workshop 5001 is already making its mark in this very niche segment.
One such example is its very first creation, a heavily reworked 1973 narrow body 911. From the outside, unlike a Singer creation with those sexy as all hell widened wheel arches, it looks mostly stock. But at its rear end lies a 3.4-liter flat-six producing over 300 hp. It also features a new suspension and a perfected body. Oh, and we love those steel wheels. It’s so simple it’s brilliant.
