    The adaptive sport seats are more comfortable and adjustable. At least the owner drives his car and doesn't keep it in a closed garage to look at it only. Smiley

    I agree. I think the R was intended primarily for spirited off track and touring purposes unlike the RS.  In some ways the R is more akin to the Touring version offered for the 73 RS.

    That R was just intended for marketing reasons. To create an adorable, cool, collector car. I don't think that there was a meeting when someone said - we need a spirited off track and touring car. But - they thought what could be an adorable product which supports the myth. Period!

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Given how they limited its production I would tend to agree with the marketing objective idea. Maybe an issue of the engineers wanting to create a spirited off track specific version and then the marketing department and the pencil pushers taking that and turning it into a marketing exercise afterwards...

    All marketing. They screwed up with only PDK on the 991.1 GT3, tried to make up for it with the 9000rpm engine, got too much slack, tested the waters with a manual GT4, then realized they could sell a "limited" manual GT3 called R with a lot of woha! 

    Anything that is limited and marginally different seem to sell like hot cakes.

    That color would NOT work in Sweden if your not a big fan of a very controversial football team based in a suburb of Stockholm called Solna. Pro that car in south part of Stockholm and that car would be no more.....

    The owner from the Total911 article has documented the cars history on instagram named one.2.zero which I've been following since October. Nice article as well which made good holiday reading!

    looking at the radar graphic, the 997 RS 4.0 rules... ;)

    After looking only at efficiency, the conclusion is in favor of the 991RS

     

     

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Here is a PTS  R that has just arrived at my dealer . It goes to someone who has already an R in GT Silver . He wanted another one in PTS and confort seats with the R lining . Some people manage to get what they want blush

    There was another R , that I am not allowed to photographe for the moment . The only thing I can say, is that it has different color rims on each side ( one side  blue and side  one red )  + other things  and that it comes like that from the factory  When allowed I will post photos .

    Agreed...I love these colors too but I don't "get" the Sport Classic at all. For me, this was the biggest rip-off from Porsche. Smiley

    I love the looks of it. I agree the hardware could be more special, but the looks are just about perfect for a 997.
