Ferrari Red Porsche 911 R Has Killer Looks

You know you’re a baller when you have your Porsche painted in Rosso Corsa, better known as Ferrari Red. The owner of this 911 R is clearly the ultimate baller.

Thanks to Porsche’s Paint to Sample program, pretty much any color imaginable can be ordered from the factory and that includes many of the most famous shades from Porsche’s fiercest rivals.

This is the first 911 R we’ve seen painted in Rosso Corsa and is reportedly the only one of its kind in existence. The red suits the curvaceous bodywork of the enthusiast-focused 911 perfectly and has been beautifully contrasted by white accents on the sides and white wheels with black center caps.

We’re not sure how much the paint of this Porsche would have cost, but it certainly wouldn’t have been cheap. In fact, there is at least one color in the brand’s range, Phyton Green, that costs almost $100,000.

If you had unlimited money, what color would you paint your dream 911 R?


Presenting the only known paint to sample Rosso Corsa (non-metallic UNI; Y81) 911 R, from Gstaad, Switzerland. Need info on chassis number. I have known of this car’s existence but it had always evaded cameras until recently. Seeing a very familiar PTS Gulf Blue GT3 RS owned by @alexisbve at the back, I’m inclined to believe this is in the Gstaad area. A very interesting color scheme. Much thanks to @alexisbve for the confirmation of the color on this very special car. If any other readers, particularly from Switzerland, have further insight on this example, please send me a message. Photo courtesy of @enginelifestyle.

    Replace the white wheels and it will look even better

  • Six_Tymes

    The lower side stripes should have been silver, along with the wheels and it would have been perfect.

      Something stupid. Don’t think about it too much.

  • Bobby Wagner

    This car clearly needs black rims

    • Six Thousand Times

      Almost nothing needs black rims – or even the whole wheel.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I would have my 911R in Brewster Green, but this would do just fine.

  • An Existing Person

    This color is begging for black wheels and black stripes.

  • Belthronding Tinuviel

    White wheels look like japan after market products.

  • Bash

    White rims!!!

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      And wheels too!!

  • SteersUright

    Love the color, hate the white accents (decal and wheels).

  • Six Thousand Times

    I think those wheels are called Essex White.

    These articles feel like they’re written by news reporters. They’re broadly accurate but the underlying inaccuracies actually make this a useless source of quality information – see Phyton Green reference.

    Wonderful car and Wonderful color, but a 488 Ferrari Rosso Corsa is better ….

  • nastinupe

    I wish someone would just paint this car in Guards Red with Turbo 20 inch rims with a ducktail. I hate every paint scheme I see on this car.

  • Auf Wiedersehen
  • Tumbi Mtika

    Guards Red is all it needs to sell me on this.
