When money is no object and you’re a big speed junkie, you probably want to enjoy a track-oriented machine whenever the time and weather conditions allow it. If that is the case and you’re looking for a proper driver’s car, there’s no better choice than the brand new Porsche 911 R.
This pure sports car comes with a classical design and filled with track-oriented 21st century technologies. Inspired by legendary predecessors, the latest 911 variant features a lightweight construction, tipping the scales at just 1,370 kg, being the lightest version of the 911 yet.
Powered by a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine, which develops 500 PS and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque, the Porsche 911 R version will do 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.8 seconds.
The owner of this beauty will enjoy a six-speed manual sports transmission, with short gearshift travel, which will make accelerating to the top speed of 323 km/h (200 mph) incredible. Porsche has focused on making the 911 R as maneuverable and precise as possible and as such, it’s been equipped with a specially tuned standard rear-axle, a mechanical rear differential lock and ceramic composite brakes (PCCB).
Porsche made it clear that this is a track-oriented car, not exactly meant for day-to-day driving. It’s still a perfectly capable cruiser within city limits, even with heavy traffic around. As such, the cabin offers carbon full bucket seats, with fabric center panels, an R-specific GT sport steering wheel, carbon trim and pull straps as door openers. Please note that only 991 units of the limited-edition 911 R will be delivered so you’d better hurry up if you can afford one.
