Global expansion continues for Singer Automotive, as Fukuoka-based Ei San Motors joins its worldwide network. Singer, based a bit north of L.A. in Sun Valley, is legendary for its restoration and reimagination of Porsche 911s, specifically air-cooled models.
Welcoming Ei San Motors allows the swaths of passionate Japanese customers to learn about Singer thanks to their deeply experienced team. The Porsche 911 scene is highly popular in Japan, and Singer is synonymous with high quality 911 restorations.
Singer’s current global partnerships extend from North America, Europe, and now emerging in Asia, with relationships in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan.
Full report below.
New clients in Japan will be able to learn about Singer’s services and discuss their requirements in a sophisticated and welcoming environment, surrounded by a high level of customer support from the deeply experienced team at Ei San Motors.
The announcement also means that both Singer’s existing clients and future owners in Japan will have access to expert, in-country servicing and maintenance from a trusted partner.
The car in the photos is a 1991 Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer, already on the roads of Japan. The car is presented in Lavender Metallic with ghosted stripes and lettering. The interior is trimmed in Purple. Sport seats with 4-way adjustment and bespoke leather-weave inserts have been selected.
The heart of this machine is a 4.0L, naturally aspirated, air-cooled flat-six, paired with a 6-speed transmission and All-Wheel-Drive. The signature centre-mounted fuel filler and external side-mounted oil filler are both specified.
While this is an All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) example, owners are also able to specify Rear-Wheel-Drive (RWD). Either left-hand-drive (LHD) or right-hand-drive (RHD) cars can be restored and Singer’s special wishes department handles client requests for bespoke details and engineering, ranging from bespoke trim finishes through to ski-racks, spot-lights or alternative wheel design.
Founder and Executive Chairman of Singer, Rob Dickinson explains – “Having visited Japan, I've seen first-hand the vibrant Porsche owners' scene and love for the 911. With the first restorations for owners in Japan already completed, it's incredibly exciting for Singer to be joining this community and to have a local presence in this very important market. As our client group grows, we need a partner of the highest reputation to look after them. I'm thrilled that Ei San Motors will be representing Singer and supporting our amazing owners in Japan."
Chairman of Ei San Motors, Timothy Chang, noted: “We’re very excited to be at the forefront of introducing Singer’s services to a wider audience in Japan. The 911 is an iconic car with a huge following in Japan so we’re delighted to be able to be part of Singer’s ongoing growth in such an important market. The parent company, Yun San Motors, represents Singer in Taiwan so together we look forward to supporting Singer’s clients and building the brand in Asia. Ei San Motors represents some of the most iconic brands in the automotive world and I’m delighted that Singer is now part of the family.”
