KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian and Singaporean Porsche 911 enthusiasts are now able to tap into the restoration services of US-based Singer Vehicle Design, thanks to Historic Motoring Ventures.

As the territorial partner for Singer, Historic Motoring Ventures helps customers in locating a donor Porsche 911, specifying the unique creation, and liaising with Singer’s designers and craftsmen in California throughout the restoration process.

Each restoration takes over 4,000 hours to complete. Singer takes a customer’s existing Porsche 911 and performs restorative work, combined with cutting–edge updates to enhance the car's performance, aesthetics and modern day use-ability, while preserving the essence and magic of the original. The goal is to blend tradition with modernity to re-create bespoke, one-of-a-kind  air-cooled Porsche 911s.

With an 8-10 month restoration cycle, vehicles have been commissioned by Porsche owners in Mexico, Hong Kong, Indonesia, France, Russia, Canada, England, Germany, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, South Korea, Norway and Britain.

Singer was founded in 2009 by Rob Dickinson, a former sports car designer who became a rock musician, and is now also known as a master restorer of air-cooled Porsches.

Historic Motoring Ventures is a Kuala Lumpur company that organises, manages, hosts and promotes historic and exotic motoring activities in Asia. It has organised car shows and events such as Malaysia International Vintage & Classic Car Concours and Rally Klasika.
