Porsche only made 991 examples of the 911 R, and enthusiasts rushed in to grab each and every one of them in no time, despite having a base price of around $185,000.
As it was believed that it would be the last manual GT-branded 911, prices skyrocketed, and not long after shipping began, we could see some of them listed for well over $1 million.
Since then, flippers have started asking less for the car, and with the facelifted Porsche 911 GT3 being offered with a stick shift, the 911 R has become more affordable than ever on the ‘used’ market. Well, that’s if €499,000 (equal to $612,944) can be called affordable.
What we have here, in the ad posted on Mobile, is an example that has only 50 km (31 miles) on the clock. This means its owner chose to keep it tucked away, in an attempt to fetch as much as possible, and the patience might have paid off. That is if someone is going to pay up.
Finished in white and adorned with green stripes, this Porsche 911 R is as good as they come. The interior is basically brand new, without any tear and wear, except for a few spots on the gearshift lever, but they could come off, hopefully.
Just like all 911 Rs out there, it’s powered by the naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine, which generates 500PS (493hp) and 460Nm (339lb-ft) of torque. Officially, the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration is done in 3.8 seconds, and top speed is 323km/h (201mph).
