Porsche enthusiasts, fasten your seatbelts. The long-awaited Porsche 911 R has finally made its world debut at the Geneva International Motor Show this week. The Geneva International Motor Show is an annual auto show held each year in March in Geneva, Switzerland. This is the show where exotic supercars, prototypes and exciting debuts are made in the automotive world. What better place for the Porsche 911 R to be introduced?
The Porsche 911 R pays homage to the original 911R (R for Racing) from 1967. Like its legendary predecessor, the new 911 R features a systematic lightweight construction, a high level of performance and an unfiltered driving experience.
The 911 R is limited to 991 units worldwide and represents the lightest available version of the 911 with a curb weight of just 3021 pounds. Powered by a 500 hp four-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine which is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the 911 R underscores Porsche’s commitment to building emotional and engaging high-performance sports cars with a maximum amount of driving pleasure. Developed by Porsche’s motorsport department, the 911 R is the third model to use Porsche’s latest generation of high-performance naturally aspirated flat-six engines alongside the track-bred 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS models.
This Porsche was made for the purists, and Porsche of Rancho Mirage is thrilled for its debut. Pricing starts at $184,900 and only 991 of these specials will be made. Call Porsche of Rancho Mirage for more information at (888) 429-5203.
