The 991 R was the answer from Porsche many had been looking for. A GT3 RS engine mated to a manual gearbox, with the silhouette of an early, wingless 911. The heritage behind the car harks back to the original 1967 R variant, with driver involvement as the focus over out and out lap times.
Launched at the 2016 Geneva motor show, the car featured a livery in homage to the original and inside the historical houndstooth interior trim.
Whilst oriented towards driver involvement, there have still been weight savings over a GT3 RS. The use of a manual gearbox saves 20kg over a PDK, new carbon fibre front wings, optional single mass flywheel and the removal of sound deadening bring the total loss to around 50kg.
The car keeps the rear-wheel steer from the GT3 RS improving agility and handling, although the system has been recalibrated, along with the rear diffuser to ensure high-speed stability in the absence of the rear wing.
The 4.0 naturally aspirated flat-six will rev to 9,000rpm and produces 493bhp. Produced in very limited numbers, even with the more recent launch of the GT3 Touring, the R has proved itself to be the hugely desirable collectors preference 991.
This UK supplied, C16 example is presented in GT Silver Metallic with its livery in Green. Featuring the desirable single-mass flywheel, it sports the full 918 Carbon Fibre bucket seats finished in Espresso Leather with Houndstooth seat inserts. One of just 991 examples, this car has been stored in our secure facility for almost all its life. In 2016 we sourced and sold the car to its second owner. Offered today it has covered just 83 miles from new and has just had a service at Porsche GB. It is available to view at our showrooms outside London immediately.
