Porsche 911 R

The Porsche 911 R was built specifically for motor racing in 1967. Now it is back as a limited edition model which Porsche unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. Its 500 bhp four-litre naturally aspirated engine and six-speed manual gearbox places the 911 R firmly in the tradition of its historic role model, the road-homologated racing car from 1967. Originally produced as part of a limited production series, the 911 R performed in rallies, the Targa Florio and on various world record runs. Like its legendary predecessor, the new 911 R relies on systematic lightweight construction, maximum performance and an unfiltered driving experience. It's final nod to the 911 R's of the past are the Porsche logos on the sides of the vehicle and the continuous colour stripes in red or green over the body of the car.
