Porsche has unleashed the 911 R at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The sports car offers all the drama of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in a classic design package that appears restrained, as in the proverb “Wolf in Sheep’s clothing”. This special edition is limited to 991 units with a focus on “lightweight construction, maximum performance and unfiltered driving experience.”
The exterior of the car is an amalgamation of the Carrera and GT3 models; finished in white colour that is accentuated with red stripes as a nod to its heritage. The unique design elements of the body are a redesigned front spoiler lip, Porsche logos on the sides and a retractable rear spoiler along with an R model-specific diffuser.

The race-oriented interior is seen with carbon full bucket seats with fabric upholstery in Pepita tartan design. Many R-specific parts such as sports steering wheel, short gearshift lever and clutch pedal also make their way into the cabin. The exclusivity of this model is conveyed through an aluminium badge affixed on the front passenger side which displays the number of this limited edition.
