Porsche India has brought a delightful treat to its fancy customers. The limited-run Porsche 911 R has finally arrived in India. We all know it is the ultimate 911 if you fancy the current-generation car. The German sportscar maker decided to only produce 991 examples of this monstrously powerful limited edition, featuring a manual transmission, and gave it a 4.0-liter motor with 500 horsepower.
It is the country’s sole 911 R, and is purchased by a Bengaluru-based Porsche collector, which has been delivered in India. The 911 R made its world debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and it pays homage to Porsche’s road-homologated racing car from 1967. Like the regular 911s, this limited edition model also comes with a rear mounted naturally aspirated 4.0 litre, six-cylinder flat engine similar to the 911 GT3 RS. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual sports transmission. The nought to 100kmph sprint is achieved in 3.8 seconds and it will keep on accelerating till 323kmph.
Porsche India’s director, Pavan Shetty stated, “The 911 R epitomises the Porsche brand, with the clear design DNA of a classic 911 while performing as a racing car. It has set the standard for generations after the ground-breaking model was first introduced in the 1960’s. The 911 continues to evolve to new highs and is considered the quintessential sports car – the benchmark for all others. We are thrilled to be introducing the 911 R, a direct descendant from this famed model line, to a valuable, returning customer, who is fortunate enough to have the exclusive ownership of the only 911 R in India.”
The Porsche 911 R comes with a specifically tuned standard rear-axle steering which guarantees enhanced direct turn-in characteristics and precise handling while maintaining high stability. So its a total tension free treat for people with cornering issues. The car also gets special 20-inch lightweight wheels shod in Ultra High-Performance Tyres. While the front wheel gets 245 section tyres, the rear comes with fatter 305 section rubber. The 410 mm (front) and 390 mm (rear) disc brakes are assisted by on the rear. The 911 R also comes with the Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
With its impeccable qualities, high performance modules and brilliantly stylish design, Porsche 911 R is every person’s envy and every humans dream.
