There are many different types of classic car owners out there but for those that love their vehicles to stand out from the crowd, quite literally, there is a private sale with RM Sotheby’s that you’re going to want to sit up and take notice of in the shape of this 1991 Porsche 911 “Malibu” Reimagined by Singer. It is Singer build no. 71, known as “Malibu” and it was reimagined as recently as 2016; with only 1,400 miles on the clock since.
The 1991 Porsche 911 “Malibu” Reimagined by Singer from RM Sotheby’s is one of the most visually vibrant lots we’ve seen in a while here at Coolector HQ and it’s all the more awesome for it. It is finished in a breathtaking Mintarrini over Tan leather with Alabaster stitching and the tangible sense of quality will mean there will be no shortage of interested parties when the hammer eventually drops on this one.
Vibrant Vintage Design
Dubbed the “Malibu” by Singer, this awe-inspiring Porsche 911 has a stunning and well-thought-out specification. At its core lies Singer’s ultimate, unrestricted 4.0-liter flat six-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The 4.0-liter engine delivers an impressive 390 bhp at a redline of 7,200 rpm and 315 foot-pounds of torque.
Built by Ed Pink Racing Engines, and retaining the 964 block, the 1991 Porsche 911 “Malibu” Reimagined by Singer uses an array of bespoke internal components, which includes pistons, cylinders and cylinder heads, crankshaft, cams, connecting rods, oil pump, throttle bodies, and intake systems.
According to Singer, those cars that come equipped with the 4.0-litre can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in less than 3.3 seconds, leading to 100 mph in just 8.2 seconds. The Malibu is finished in glorious Mintarrini, which is expertly complemented by Fuchs-style wheels over red brake calipers. Singer’s larger-size steel Brembo brakes are fitted, along with an Öhlins adjustable suspension. Perhaps most crucially, the Porsche also boasts the optional exposed centre-fill fuel cap and oil filler, which is a homage to the 1972 911s.
Within the 1991 Porsche 911 “Malibu” Reimagined By Singer both driver and passenger can make the most of the optional four-way Recaro Sport seats trimmed in Tan leather with Alabaster stitching beneath the Ivory headliner. In addition, the transmission tunnel and the interior doorsills are finished off to match the exterior colour.
This spectacularly cool 911 from RM Sotheby’s is also outfitted with air-conditioning, upgraded Becker stereo with iPod connect, and subwoofer. It presently shows only 1,400 miles on its odometer since its rebuild by Singer in 2016 so it is in a condition which is almost as good as new and boasts one of the most eye-catching aesthetics imaginable.
