Leapfrog the queue for a new Porsche 911 R

If you haven’t secured one of the sought-after production slots for the modern classic of the moment, the 2016 Porsche 911 R, hold back your tears for a moment. A delivery-mileage example has just surfaced in the Classic Driver Market…

Earn your stripes of envy...

All 991 build slots for the Porsche 911 R, the most in-demand sports car of the year, have long been accounted for. Boasting a manual short-throw gearbox, an ultra-spartan interior and a 4-litre flat-six that revs to 8,500rpm, it’s one of the purest driving machines in production. With most not even in build yet, only a few have been put to the test by their new owners – but Classic Driver dealer Auto Reitmeier Gmbh is offering the chance to leapfrog the fortunate few by offering a delivery-mileage example for sale. Obviously, you’ll have to pay a premium – it’s listed for 459,000 euros before tax – but with that comes an odometer showing just 36km, and a number of optional extras including the Sport Chrono package. Oh, and doses of envy and kudos in generous amounts…

You can find modern and classic Porsche 911s of all flavours for sale in the Classic Driver Market.
