With dual-clutch transmissions sweeping through Porsche's top-tier lineup, the GT3 and GT3 RS were announced that they would no longer be offered with a row-your-own manual transmission. An uproar ensued throughout the Porsche driving community, saying that by removing the manual option they were removing one of the best and engaging parts about driving a Porsche. To quell the flame that was building, Porsche would announce a car to celebrate an anniversary of 50 years and fight fire with fire: the 2016 Porsche 911R.
Limited to 291 units in the U.S., 991 worldwide, the new Porsche 911R was created to honor the anniversary of what started it all: the 1967 Porsche 911R. Drawing inspiration from a model built 50 years prior, these new 911s carry many of the same principles and design characteristics that made the original R's so formidable. High power, low weight, razor sharp handling, all tightly wound into one cohesive package. Available first to Porsche 918 owners, the 911Rs sold out and would become a lust-worthy 911 edition that is highly prized to true enthusiasts.
This Porsche 911R was optioned in GT Silver over the optional Tarpan Brown leather with Houndstooth inserts. A total of $25,855 worth of options were spec'd, including popular options such as the LED Porsche Dynamic Light System, Single Mass Flywheel with Reinforced Clutch, Front Axle Lift, Sport Chrono Package, Bose Surround Sound, and others. It was delivered to Hoehn Porsche of Carlsbad, California on September 8th, 2016. It still retains its original owner's manuals and maintenance booklet, spare keys, original window sticker, and its tools. With only 447 miles since new, this 911R presents as a newly-delivered car. Ready to be driven and enjoyed, the 911R is the perfect combination of performance, comfort and motorsports heritage.
About the Porsche 911R:
The 911R plays host to some of the best motorsport technology that has created simply one of the best street cars Porsche has ever made. Lightweight body panels made from carbon fiber and magnesium bring down weight to race car-levels of 3,021 pounds. Its incredible steering feedback and rear wheel steering allows precise steering unfathomable to whom have never driven an R, all while being able to drive on any city street comfortably. One of the highlights of the 911R is its slick 6-speed GT Sport manual transmission, unlike the 6 and 7-speeds found in many modern 911s. More precise and likened to a bolt-action of a rifle when shifting, it is the definition of precision. The 500 horsepower, naturally aspirated 4.0 liter flat six engine also makes an appearance in the R, unchanged from the GT3RS with maximum power available at 8,250rpm.
While the 911R focuses on being as pure as a high performance 911 can be, the interior is far from being stripped down. You'll find exquisite leather on surfaces throughout the interior, with the carbon fiber bucket seats from the Porsche 918. One of the unique characteristics that sets the 911R apart is the ability to hear the mechanical noises throughout the interior. With only light noise dampening, you can hear the mechanicals working in concert as you drive 9/10ths and giving you a raw experience that no other street 911 can. Simple but elegant and utilitarian while luxurious, the 911R's cabin is a wonderful place to be anywhere.
