Porsche makes a move to try and stop 911 R flippers

We are pretty much aware that a lot of people purchase limited run cars to sell them for double or triple the price. And this always happens with whatever brand you can think of. One of the models that have been flipped by resellers is the limited-run 911 R.

And as a response to this, the man in charge of the Porsche 911 recently admitted that they came out with the GT3 Touring package at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show in September to target resellers who have been flipping their cars.

If you are a huge fan of the Porsche 911, you probably know that the original retail price of the R is $185,000. But since there are only 991 examples of this made, making it extra rare, resellers had the chance to skyrocket the prices. In fact, there are 911 Rs out there that are still up for grabs, only they cost $1.25 million now. Of course, any automaker who took their time, effort, and sweat into developing these cars would not be happy to hear this news, and that is why they came out with the Touring Pack for the 911 GT3.

California dealer is selling a jet black 2016 Porsche 911 R for $409,000

For a car that was just introduced in 2016, the Porsche 911 R (991 generation) is fetching a pretty high price in the resale market. Examples have changed hands for amount several times the original launch price of $184,900. In fact, a Porsche 911 R was sold by an Australian group early this year for over $900,000 (US). But now, a seller from California is selling a 911 R for half that asking price.

Ilusso, a dealer based in Costa Mesa, California, is selling a 2016 Porsche 911 R – which means it is essentially brand new -- for $409,000. This asking price is more than twice the original price of $184,900.

This particular 911 R being sold is wrapped in a jet black finish and features continuous colored stripes in dark grey over the entire mid-section. It also features a red 'Porsche' script as well as red-and-white door accents along each of its sides. It also rides on bright red 20-inch GT3 center lock wheels. Featuring a VIN (vehicle identification number) of WP0AF2A92GS195321, this 2016 Porsche 911 R only has 140 miles (225 km) on its odometer, which is the mileage of a newly driven sports car. This Porsche is number 286 of the 991 total units produced.

Is this Acid Green Porsche 911 R bright enough for you?

Any car that has been finished in Acid Green will definitely catch the attention of even the most distracted individual. So if it’s your goal to turn people’s heads, then this should be the right colour choice for you. And while there are other automakers that offer a shocking green paint finish, Porsche does a more dazzling job than any of them.

This was made possible by the Paint to Sample programme. We’re willing to bet that this photo does not give justice to the paint job as it’s said to be much more vivid in person. In fact, when comparing it to Lamborghini’s lime green, the latter looks very much subdued.

At the time of this writing, there are only two Porsche 918 Spyders that are painted in this particular hue, alongside a handful of other Porsche models, like that of the 911 R.

Porsche 911 R in Gulf Oil racing livery racks up many likes on Instagram

The Porsche 911 R is a car anyone would want even before they’ve seen it in action. For a car that’s so handsome and available for a limited time only, it is no wonder why guys easily go crazy over them. Further, the market for supercars has never been more filled with folks willing to pay more than the list price. Among the prime examples are the Ferrari 458 Speciale, a Cayman GT4 or the latest “must-have” from Porsche -- the 911 R.

Recently, a stunning Porsche 911 R with the legendary Gulf Oil racing livery was spotted online and has since become a favourite among many fans worldwide. The colour scheme is a combination of light blue and bright orange.

The viral photo, which was posted on Instagram was supposedly taken inside a Porsche showroom. Though we have no idea where exactly, those who’ve seen it first suggested that the location must be someplace in North America. Any guesses?

When Porsche announced the 911 R (991 generation), the brand said that this limited edition model would only have 991 samples. With the production model limited in number, it was easy to predict that the price of a Porsche 911 R would shoot up significantly in the open market. In fact, Porsche has sold out the limited edition version of the 911.

When it was still being offered as a new unit fresh from factory, the Porsche 911 R was fetching a starting price of $184,900 each. However, when options are availed and taken into account, a new Porsche 911 R would cost more than $184,900. But even if all options are added, a new Porsche 911 R wouldn’t have a price of nearly $1 million. But in the open market, a group is actually selling Porsche 911 R close to this humongous amount.

Here comes Supercar Advocates, a group that purchases, takes deliveries and reviews sports cars, and super cars including those made by Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini. It is selling a Porsche 911 R – pretty new based on its somewhat pristine exterior appearance and its odometer figure – through Australian automotive sales Web site Carsales. According to Supercar Advocates, this unit is a 2017 Porsche 911 R that has been only driven for 68 kilometers – just the mileage you could get during delivery of a vehicle. Wrapped in white exterior finish, this limited edition sports car comes with 911 R stripes in green as well as green side stripes with Porsche script in black. Likewise, this Porsche 911 R being sold by Supercar Advocates features full bucket seats in leather.

Sounds cool. Horacio Pagani (founder of Pagani Automobili) has just added two special cars to his exclusive collection. A Ferrari F12 TDF and a Porsche 911 R. It comes as no surprise. Actually, the supercar magnate is known for having a special liking to anything exotic.

To some though, acquiring the work of their competitors may be the last thing on their minds. Pagani has been manufacturing the world’s most exclusive supercars--- the Pagani Huayra and the Zonda. However, it’s not as if this is the first time that the Modena-based manufacturer has admired and actually bought another brand outside his firm. In fact, Pagani already owns an MSO McLaren P1, a Porsche Carrera GT and a Ford GT even before he saw these two new babies.

Porsche earlier made an exclusive offer to current 918 owners for a chance to own one of the company’s limited models. The Porsche 911 R that is. As the story goes, Pagani didn’t pass up the chance and straight away, he took them up on their amazing offer. Just like the white 911 R that was shown in Geneva the previous year, Pagani’s Porsche 911 R also has those red stripes painted along the exterior.

On February 8, 2017, a special version of the Porsche 911 R limited edition – one that pays tribute to legendary actor Steve McQueen – would change hands. It is because this PTS (Paint to Sample) Porsche 911 R McQueen tribute would be placed under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s auction event in Paris, France on that very day.

Porsche first unveiled the 2017 Porsche 911 R at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with only 991 units produced and made available. Typically – when the PTS option is not availed – the 911 R will feature a livery the same as the 1967 911 R and will come with GT3 foundations and engine. The latest 911 R is essentially a 911 GT3 except for the fact that its 4.0-liter engine is not paired to a PDK transmission and features no rear wing. From the front end to the rear bumpers, the 911 R and the 911 GT3 look the same. Elements like its side skirts, rear fenders, wheels, and the mirrors are the same for the two models.

However, the absence of the PDK transmission means that the new 911 R is fitted with a six-speed transmission. While the PDK transmission boasts of quicker shift times and smoother gear changes, many see the manual transmission as vital elements for a vehicle to be a true driver’s car.

The rear engine layout is considerably Porsche 911’s ultimate selling point. Over the years, the arrangement of the engine has proven to be more capable for racing. But then, Porsche apparently gave its 911 a rather unusual overhaul. The latest Porsche 911 RSR (yes, the same car that would take part in the “24 Hours of Le Mans”) now has a new mid-engine.

But that’s not all. There are 19 other racing events in the GTE category where the 2017 Porsche 911 RSR will be part of. So this must be something really big.

According to Porsche, the much larger diffuser at the rear was in place after they positioned the 4.0 Litre horizontally arranged 6-cylinder engine at the middle. Porsche realised this new layout significantly improves handling and provides better balance as compared with the rear engine layout.

The 2017 Porsche 911 R was first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Only 991 units will be produced for this line of 911 R and will be expected to cost more than the GT3 RS. The newest 911 R will come with the same 1967 911 R livery and will be using GT3 foundations and engine.

911 R is practically a GT3 except for the PDK transmission and rear wing. The two are nearly identical from the front down to its rear bumpers – which include the rear fenders, wheels, side skirts and even the mirrors. However one may think of the 2017 911 R to be similar to the GT3 but there are several differences. Instead of a wing, the 911 R engine lid has a conventional grille and a retractable spoiler taken from Carrera models as well as a redesigned front spoiler lip and rear underbody diffuser.

The 911 R is 50 kg lighter than the GT3 because of the material used for its front and rear hoods and fenders (made of carbon fiber) as well as its magnesium-made roof. The 911 R has a 4.0-liter engine that can produce 500 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of torque similar to the GT3 RS.

At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche wowed car dealers, owners and enthusiasts with the newest addition to its line of sports cars – the Porsche 911 R. It was designed to showcase the traditional Porsche with a twist, depending on its owner. The 911 R is designed so that customers are given the opportunity to give their 911 Rs a personal touch. Before we discuss the different ways of how you can customize your own Porsche 911 R, let us first look into the things that set it apart from other sports cars. The new Porsche 911 R still comes in the classic 911 appearance but with the GT motor racing technology.

Just like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the 911 R is powered by a 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine and was developed in the Porsche Motorsport workshop. It can provide a maximum output of 500 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and a peak torque of 460 Nm at 6,250 rpm; these allow the 911 R to hit 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds only.

Furthermore, the Porsche 911 R has an estimated top speed of 201 mph. No bad, huh? The Porsche 911 R is offered with a six-speed manual sports transmission only and no automatic transmissions for this vehicle. For it to be a more interactive and responsive experience, the 911 R features a short gearshift travel. It also features an NEDC fuel consumption of 21.2 mpg or 13.3 liters per 100 kilometers. How efficient is that?
