One of the fastest-growing trends in the automotive world lately has been the emergence of the premium restomod. Rides like the Toyota Land Cruisers and Ford Broncos being produced by Icon and the 964-series Porsche 911s being treated to retro racer makeovers by Rob Dickinson and the crew at Singer Vehicle Design may not be painted in wild colors or have horsepower out the wazoo, but they are the products of meticulous craftsmanship and filled with lots of clever details and custom tricks. Think of them as the gearhead versions of playing old vinyl albums on a turntable that’s plugged in to a modern home theater sound system.

Recently, Dickinson brought one of his company’s thoroughly reworked Porsches to Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage. Unsurprisingly, Jay was impressed with not only how the car looks, but how natural and easy-to-pick-up the driving experience is. Perhaps there’s a Singer 911 in the King of Late Night’s future…
