The Porsche 911 R Is Back In Production, And It Will Cost You Just $60 (You Wish…)

It’s not a totaled, burned out car and it’s not a replica – it’s not a joke though either, because the reason behind the cheap asking price for this Porsche 911 R is very simple: it’s a scale model.

The 1:18 toy comes in 108 pieces, so it’s pretty much a 3D jigsaw puzzle, which, when completed, looks like the venerable German sports car.

It’s available in the company’s stores in their local market, and it can be purchased from their online store, too. As for the price tag, this would be €49.90, tax included, which equals to almost $58 at the current exchange rates.

Meanwhile, the full scale 911 R price craze seems to be subsiding: from the example that was listed for over $1 million, we’re now down to less than $400,000 for another R that has just 30 miles (48 km) on the odo and looks pretty much like it just left the factory floor.

All 911 Rs have the same exterior and interior looks, differentiated by the paint finishes. And unlike other modern 911s, which have been turbocharged and PDK-ed, the R has a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine and a good old six-speed stick shift. The 500 PS (493 hp / 368 kW) 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque produced by the flat-six rocket the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds, and up to a maximum speed of 323 km/h (200 mph).

Still, $400k is a lot of money, so we’ll just go with the 3D puzzle, thank you very much.

    A 3d puzzle for a miniature car model is one of the dumbest ideas I’ve heard. The whole point of buying miniature models is for them to look as much as the real cars and you can’t achieve that with visible puzzle pieces.
