A Slate Grey Porsche 911 R dedicated to Steve McQueen
King of Cool meets King of The Ring
Steve McQueen’s Porsche 911 S and this menacing new 911 R might be separated by 46 years, but their similarities are easy to see. The Hollywood legend’s classic Porsche – which serves as the inspiration for this Slate Grey 991 – starred in his passion project film Le Mans in 1971. The motorsport thriller was an indulgence in his true love, racing – the subject of one of his most famous quotes, which is now emblazoned on the 911 R’s carbon-fibre sills. While McQueen’s 911 S was sold at auction in 2011 for 1.375m US dollars, Classic Driver dealer Eleven Cars has consigned this modern homage to the RM Sotheby’s Paris 2017 sale, and 25% of the hammer price will be donated to the Institute Gustave Roussy, one of the world-leaders in child cancer research.
