Immaculate, One of Only 991 911 R Models Built Worldwide, Rare US Delivery with 32 miles and $28,000.00 in Desirable Options.
2016 Porsche 911R
Silver Metallic with Black/Tarpan Brown Leather
The iconic Porsche 911 has become one of the most enduring sports cars of the century. Built in a range of configurations over decades of development, Porsche improved on an already refined, fuel efficient, and comfortable performance car, offering many versions of the 911. But in 2016 a bolt of lightening struck Stuttgart melding the soul of a GT3 RS track car to a street-ready 911. Only 991 Porsche 911R models were built and sold to a very special group of enthusiasts, fewer still were made available in the US. The 911R featured a 4.0 liter, 500 hp naturally aspirated flat six mated to a 6 speed manual transmission, installed in a lightened package, resulting in a $185,950.00 base sticker price. As great as this car was, even the most motivated of Porsche buyers were told the 911R was unavailable. The entire run was spoken for within weeks of release. Since then, this series Porsche has become highly sought after for the performance capabilities and rarity it will continue to retain for years to come.
This astonishing 32-mile example is a one-owner car, delivered and sold new in the US. The owner took possession of the car but exhibited formidable driving restraint, electing instead to preserve this beautiful GT Silver 911R for the next fortunate owner. The car has remained essentially unused, safely stored indoors, awaiting new ownership. The condition overall is simply stunning in every respect. Paint is flawless, wheels are brand new, and there is no evidence of any road wear or use whatsoever. The interior remains as new and all systems are functioning as one might expect from a brand new car. All glass, lenses, trim, and badges appear as new.
As with all 911R models, standard features included the Direct Fuel Injection 500 hp 4.0 liter engine and 6 speed GT sport transmission. The engine itself is a technical marvel using dry-sump lubrication, VarioCam camshaft control for inlet and outlet valves, variable intake system with switchable tuning flap, cylinder specific knock control, and sport exhaust system with two black center tail pipes. For suspension and braking the 911R multi-link rear axle uses an integrated auxiliary spring and an anti-roll bar, combined with rear axle steering and Porsche Torque Vectoring – a delight for those familiar with rear engine performance driving traits – delivering power immediately and smoothly to even less experienced performance drivers. Front wheels are 9x20 inch GT3 with center locks shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 245/35 ZR20 tires, while the rears are 12x20 inch GT3 center locks with 305/30 ZR20 series tires. Additionally Porsche Active Suspension Management, Anti-Slip Regulation and Automatic Brake Differential, combined with Porsche Stability Management and Antilock Braking (using composite 410mm brakes up front and 390mm at the rear) result in a performance car with essentially the finest handling, braking, and cornering characteristics of any 911 Porsche ever built.
As so many of the performance characteristics of modern sports cars are built into the engine, it’s particularly refreshing to see the range of thoughtful improvements made to the structure of the 911R. Much of this car has been lightened including a lightweight roof constructed from Magnesium, lightweight front fenders made of composite carbon fiber, and a lightweight luggage compartment lid also made of carbon fiber. All of this results in a curb weight of just 3021 lbs – making the 911R the lightest of all current 911 series cars. The entire body shell is galvanized steel with Boron steel safety structures and features lightweight aluminum doors with integrated side impact protection in each door. The interior of the car is fully outfitted with eight airbags including driver and passenger, knee, head, door, and thorax airbags. In addition to all this protection, there is the added delight of a 24 gallon extended range fuel tank installed to increase your driving pleasure over long distances.
All this performance is further enhanced with nearly 30 of Porsche’s additional premium options in a bespoke package combining comfort, convenience, and further performance enhancements, totaling over $27,000.00. Inside the 911R one is surrounded in state of the art technology with a full array of instrumentation, power steering, Bi-Xenon headlights, and SportDesign side mirrors. And if all this was not enough, this particular 911R is equipped with over $28,000.00 in factory options including a two-tone black and tarpan brown leather interior, factory fire extinguisher, Porsche light design package, Sport Chrono Package, Bose Surround Sound. Sirius XM Satellite Radio with NavTraffic, and leather-cased steering column. Further performance and exterior trim options include a Single-Mass flywheel with reinforced clutch (an 11 lb weight savings), front axle lift system, LED headlights in Black with Porsche Dynamic Lighting System, side stripes with Porsche script in green, auto-dimming mirrors with upper carbon fiber trim, and carbon fiber door sill guards. All of this added up to an MSRP of $214,050.00 when delivered new.
For the fortunate few who have experienced the driving pleasure of the 911R, it is nothing short of amazing. The automotive press worldwide lauded the 911R and rightly so. With the 500hp engine tuned to RS specs, making a delightful sound at 8500 rpms, superlatives piled up. The power and delivery, combined with the light single-mass flywheel, resulted in a very eager car, ready to deliver on the promise of Porsche’s racing heritage - powerful in acceleration and cornering, but also offering astonishing fade-free braking due to the carbon-ceramic brakes and GT suspension. Once at speeds only allowable on closed courses, one can truly feel the effect of the R-specific underbody rear diffuser (tastefully if not a bit stealthily hidden under the car) and unique front air splitter. Much of modern performance is often lost on daily driving, but with the 911R there is a great deal of satisfaction in slowly enjoying the scenery at a comfortable pace, dropping two gears down and romping within seconds to freeway speeds. The sounds and visceral sensations of acceleration are spectacular. The engine delivers promptly in harmony with the suspension and cornering, offering even the most capable drivers the challenge and bliss of rear-engine motoring in a very well-balanced road car. This rare 911R comes with all factory documentation as delivered new including the window sticker, owners manual and leather pouch, tools, jack, and proper spare.
This 911R is a stunning factory offering, loaded with nearly 30 premium options, essentially as delivered to the US, brand new. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a spectacular driving car combining tremendous history and state of the art technology, proven race performance, and luxury appointments. This exceptional car, offered in GT Silver with black leather interior, awaits the next fortunate owner, one who will surely appreciate the engineering and design excellence offered in the iconic 911R.
