Singer Vehicle Design's legal department doesn't want you to call it a Singer Porsche, a Singer 911, a Singer Targa or anything else other than a "Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer" (presumably because Porsche themselves doesn't want Singer to).

In an era that included Paul Newman, Robert Mitchum, Charles Bronson, et al, McQueen was the "King of Cool". That’s some pretty heavy company to be king of. Part of it was the …

As a new editor offering my “Top 5” picks from ebay, you may shake your head a bit. Fine. Maybe you’ll want to argue with me. Better. Maybe you think I’m an idiot. Stand in line.
