This is about as much detail as we have so far:

Singer and Williams Are Wildly Modifying a Porsche Flat-Six

Another thing to note, looks like it has a Motec C125 dash in it from the in car video, probably there for the testing purposes.

Apparently i've fallen way behind on knowing how much a Singer costs. Further reinforces my disbelief in these cars that I will never ever ever ever ever ever ever be able to afford?

$1M "it just might be worth it."

yea, I'm in your boat! And most sadly, the Singer has become a hit, rather than an, "Are they crazy? It's just a 911, not worth $XXX,000!" used car that won't hold it's value, waiting for me to scoop it up.

Not all cars are for all people, or maybe more appropriately, not all super exotic cars are for all people. Personally. I think it would be a tad silly to be debate the value of something I could never afford. What is of value is all relative. To judge a company that spends a lot of design time and money to build something that has the “bones” of a classic but has been designed to fit a smaller different market is pointless.
