Tuthill X Singer: Porsche, past and present

After ten years of successful backdating (which, as we know, is the process of transforming modern Porsche into 70s-inspired, vintage wonders), it is now all about the rally raid. This new trend of transforming the 911 into dunes explorers – which coincides with the popularization of ‘glamping’ and the desire to go back to the daring spirit of the 80s embodied by cultural leaders like Daniel Arsham – has just found in Singer its best ambassador. A legendary Los Angeles-based car preparer, Singer has become a leader in backdating over the past ten years. Always in tune with our times, Singer anticipated that the ‘hipster’ trend (big beards, big tattoos) would decrease and that rally raid would come back in force. For the younger generation, the Paris-Dakar Rally is an anachronistic race where car manufacturers try to impress the public with prototypes that look like steel beetles. But for others, the rally is the memory of an incredible competition featuring numerous celebrities, tuned card with ni assistance or GPS, and with a whole lot of drama and great meetings. If you had to choose one car as the symbol of this adventure, it would most certainly be the Porsche 959, the one that won the rally back in 1986. From the get-go, this low and large car was great for the road and for speed. Still, Porsche wanted to expand their efficiency on the rally and decided to design a higher model with a four-wheel drive. And so, the Porsche 911 was created and was ready to compete. Highly sought-after by today’s collectors (its worth is estimated at 6 millions euros!), Singer teamed up with Tuthill to offer a new interpretation of the 959 upon request from one of their clients. The result is this wonderful machine based on a Type 964 Carrera 4, which seems ready to tackle any desert at 200km/h. This incredible model (with exorbitant price) is surely about to break the Internet and give an ever-growing Porsche-lover community the desire to get on the race of their life.
