Delivered new to its first and only owner in Monaco through Centro Porsche Firenze, this 911 R is presented in the quintessential colour scheme for Porsche’s 911 R, the most desirable variant of the 991.1-generation of 911. Finished in White with Green stripes, black wheels, and clear rear taillights, the interior is trimmed in brown leather with the quintessential houndstooth seat inserts, harkening back to 911s of yesteryear. The interior also boasts contrast stitching in silver, with matching silver door pulls. Porsche PCM satellite navigation system and Sport Chrono pack are also included as options. Importantly, the car is accompanied by its original invoice and service invoices from December 2018.

Hearing the calls of enthusiasts worldwide, Porsche first introduced the 911 R at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, this new car boasted the drivetrain of the 991.1-generation GT3 RS, but was mated to a manual gearbox instead of Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission, and without the GT3 RS’ aggressive bodywork and spoiler. Other subtle changes were made to the suspension and steering in an effort to make a truly enjoyable analog driving experience, not one that was about all-out lap times. Without the GT3 RS’ large rear spoiler, to the casual observer, this was just a 911, but to the die-hard Porsche enthusiast, it was so much more.

Having travelled just over 2,000 km from new, this 911 R is in excellent condition throughout. It would be an exciting addition to any Porsche collection as it combines GT-levels of performance with a slightly more subtle look and can be enjoyed whenever and wherever its next owner desires.
