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

Article by Christian A., on November 28, 2017

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.

Two images of the Acid Green car emerged on Instagram. It appears that it might actually be the one and only Porsche 911 R in that shade, available in the world. But then, relying on Instagram is tricky because of all the filters available. The image found on social media may actually look like a Porsche Gelbgrun (Yellow Green) mixed with some unusual lighting condition.

Unlike most Porsches out there, this one definitely stands out because it lacks decals that we usually see on every other 911 R. We have seen a handful of beautifully painted cars out there in recent years. That is because there is a growing market for this. Several automakers like Porsche, Lamborghini, McLaren, and Rolls Royce offer a range of paint schemes to their customers, with most of them quite expensive.

Nonetheless, this Porsche 911 R is highly eye-catching. Basically, the car model alone is already amazing. The R is just as mighty as the GT3 RS, but has much tamer aerodynamics, as it does not include front wing air extractors and a shaved rear wing.

Just when we thought that you have seen all the possible 911 R designs, this one came out in public. And speaking of the R models, the RS badge is expected to bring an evolution of the 991.2 GT3’s new 4.0 liter boxer, which we have spied in multiple occasions. However, rumours suggest that it might actually be a 4.2 liter engine that produces as much as 425 horsepower.

Here is the thing, Porsche said that the circuit dedication of the GT3 RS means that the newcomer will not have the same six-speed manual, but instead will have a PDK, just like the GT2.

What do you think of this acid green Porsche 911 R? Would this be a cop or a drop?
