Porsche drops lawsuit against small car brand

At first Porsche wanted to take Singer to court, then they didn't want to anyway. And now a settlement has been reached in the case.

Singer has set his sights on building – and above all rebuilding – classic Porsche models for wealthy motorists.

But that's not all the American car brand does that is equally cool. At least not if you ask in Zuffenhausen, where Porsche is actually based.

Specifically, earlier this year, Porsche had been angry at Singer's use of Porsche branding. So the Porsche name itself on the rebuilt cars. That kind of thing doesn't work.

That is why Porsche also threatened to take the small car brand, which has also built a Singer Denmark, to court. But nothing comes of that threat anyway. Porsche has simply put the lawsuit in the grave.

Instead, a settlement has been reached. However, exactly what the settlement looks like is kept confidential between the parties, and it is not certain that the public will ever learn more about it.

But it is certain that Porsche already had a problem with the Americans in 2012, just three years after Singer was founded. The Germans were – some would say – rightly worried that Singer would profit too much from the business that Porsche had created itself.

According to Carscoops , which has dug a little into the matter, something suggests that Singer must refrain from building new special editions of 911 models. At least if they still wish to use Porsche's logos, fonts and name.

Singer's business has thus been reduced to a restoration program for classic cars. Or almost. For Singer, since 2012, among other things, it has presented the DLS series of 'new' cars. And it has nothing to do with a restoration project.

And that's what the Zuffenhausen management and their army of lawyers got really pissed off about again in early February this year.

With the settlement in the case, the Singer owners, who have paid millions of dollars for their DLS cars, can sleep a little easier at night. Porsche does not come and impound the cars.
