    It does work marvelously . One side blue, one side red . I agree stunning and the best looking R I have seen . Makes it very special .

    I wouldn't mind to make it aftermarket, but probably you might cross some logo rights. 

    Probably would look great on any 991, not only the R

    The car does not belong to Tag -Heuer , but to a local Porsche collector . Not sure what the link is . He did lend it to TAG for the car show .

    But he could have done a lot more to make it even more special.

    The double stitches inside the car? he could have done it in red and blue. And uses red stitching for driver side and blue stitching on passenger side. just to list some examples.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I don't get the appeal of the mismatch in color. Is it historical or something? You'd never do something like that on any other car, so why on a 911 R is it so great?

    Me neither. And whilst it is unique & funky, I would never order it this way, doesn't really appeals to me.

    I think some old 911 race cars from the 60's had this color scheme for Heuer (unless I only dreamed it)

    But the way, that TAG Heuer R is my favorite R. Very nicely done with the color scheme.

    I think some old 911 race cars from the 60's had this color scheme for Heuer (unless I only dreamed it)

    To me the R looks way too bland  . I have seen now quite a few times two drive around my area . On in GT Silver and one in Gulf blue ( same owner ) . The Gt silver could be a GTS , hardly any difference ...... and a GTS only looks like a GTS to us , for anyone else it looks like a Carrera .  The Gulf blue looks already better on the roads, but just because of the color .  When I saw it first in the dealers parking garage it did not look good . But on the road it is different . 

    As a special model, the R needs a bit of funkiness . The Heuer does bring that . 

    And if the whole purpose is to blend in and have a 911 that looks like any Carrera , then I rather have a non limited , collectible , undrivable because of value ,  wingless GT3 or GT4

    But what's the reason to put it on an R and not any other 911 in the last X years? Would it be less cool in a base Carrera?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    The R came with stripes. Porsche should not have allowed not to have them.

    On a Carrera it would tacky and wannabe . The R is a special model, it can handle a special deco + the stripes '' make'' the R , they are part of the whole project

    Anyway, to be honest, I ouldn't find any reference to a red/white/blue Tag Heuer Porsche either.
    (And you would have thought that if anybody knows anything about red, white and blue Porsches, it would be the Dutchies...)

    The reference is to the watch directly. The Monaco Steeve McQueen wore.

    Yeah, I knew that, but I don't understand why you would want that on your car... Well, to each his own I guess. It is a unique and rare thing and since it has kind of a historical racing link, it will probably be very popular soon.
