We Get Up-Close and Personal With the Porsche 911 R

Porsche 911 R

We’ve already shared with you the recipe for happiness found in the recently-unveiled Porsche 911 R, but this time we got all touchy-feely, and it was glorious.

A naturally aspirated, 500-horsepower, 4.0 liter flat-six engine, power to the rear-wheels, and a do-it-yourself manual gearbox help make this Porsche a collector’s Porsche, especially amid the turbocharged era we’re in. The interior is equally tantalizing, with carbon fiber seat buckets wrapped in old-school plaid cloth, brown leather seat bolsters, hand-stitched leather steering wheel, and rear-seat delete.

If you haven’t snatched one by now, you’re most likely out of luck, as Porsche claims all 911 Rs were sold out before its debut. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some photos!
