Bad guys have better watch out! The New South Wales Police- Australian province- announced last week that it had received a 991 Porsche dressed in the local police colors. And yet, the so-called wicked have nothing to fear …

Under a partnership for several years with Porsche Cars Australia, the Australian subsidiary of the manufacturer has taken back the Panamera entrusted to them so far, and provided in return this astonishing  991 Carrera to the local police. The blue and white livery, remarkable thanks to its originality, is the work of a Western Sydney University student.

The kind of exotic cars that collectors dream of!

Moreover, the 991 has all the required equipment for frenzied chases with Australian highway bandits.  However, it will not happen anytime sooner. This Porsche will indeed be employed for the sole purpose of creating closer relationships between police and youth. As such, it will be regularly exposed in Junior High and high schools, where students will be invited to communicate with the police. It will also be used as an image builder during charity events. Who says Porsche is typically featured by its rich selfish customers? Obviously, the best way to stop the robbers is not to chase them….

Save yourselves the trouble and admit you fancy the design! With 93% of positive results, our readers overwhelmingly supported the idea of ​​a Targa version by the preparer Singer. It would still make sense if this atypical machine hand-built in Californian workshops were to be partially roofless!

One is tempted to be lured! Especially since a Singer Targa would be nothing impossible to realize. Although the Singer 911 takes the 964 for a working base, it is possible to get the « organ donor » car with the famous Targa roof and its large hoop. The 964 is indeed the last 911 of its kind to use this hoop in order to keep up a removable panel. The 993 then heralded the arrival of a panoramic sliding glass roof.

Unfortunately, this Singer 911 Targa is currently only a photoshop. That’s why we are imagining two types of hoop. The first one is the original 911 brushed aluminum hoop. The second is the matte black hoop, the one which equipped the 911 as from 1976. And it would not be premature to imagine Singer proposing two different colors since their 911 are customizable to the  infinity and beyond. So what is missing today to see this mesmerizing car spring? Well, probably a bold and daring customer to order it. I am willing to bet that it will happen sooner or later …
