    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I'm with you as I also think the Xenon looks better, more classic and I've never heard anyone complaining about them at night apart from other road users saying they are too bright :-)

    Just found out what the wholesale market is, my dealer bought back 2 cars from 918 owners for $200k a pop (over the MSRP).

    Purchasing a new 918 proves to be a deal of a Century.........


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    here also, one of the owner of an R has already sold it , before even getting it delivered ......

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Went into my dealer on Saturday as they had a party for Le Mans and were showing the race etc. They had a Carrera S or something done up to look like an R in pride of place below the screen enlightened

    Stripes to sample. Badges to sample. Faux R packages could be another money generator. 

    in the near future marketing will make the R available to anyone.  and in five years the standard 9-1 will run circles around it.  Seen this unfold many times.

    Most probably in five years, several 911s will run circles aroud 918, so what?

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Well, Porsche is offering 'stripe to sample' to 911R buyers right now.

    Not quite to sample but we can pick from the whole range of 3M's production, basically any colour from the 3M range.

    Not just the stripes, but the side graphics and script too an be of different colour.

    That is just awesome.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Is this true about the stripes?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Fantastic i'd love 3M purple or pink stripes!! Thank you Porsche you're the best. 

    Are you  serious!!?? Is this something only VIP clients will get ? I am glad I have no 918 ;)

    that may mean that the 911R with most " weirdo / off putting  " one -of -a -kind stripe and or side graphics color choices may be the highest-valued one in 20-25 yrs ....as long as its first owner can document/ cleverly manipulate social media right after delivery to generate , on purpose, " mocking/ derision "' so that every young budding car nut on the interweb becomes aware of it .....we know how that " retrospectoscope  " auction market works ...look at genuine unmolested  " Paul Newman " - dialed Rolex Daytona Chronographs back 45 yrs ago ...dealers had " new old stock " of them until the early 80s because contemporary buyers vastly preferred  the more low key traditional sub dial ones....look at their vintage values now !

    Yes it's true. Your dealer may not be able to spec them, but Exclusive can, they will be CXX options.

    I had submitted 3 different configurations for them to choose from.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Please the yellow 911 R ;) 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Sorry, but I think yellow is so very wrong for the R. The R is supposed to be an understaded roadcar with GT in the veins yet elegant and classy, etc. If someone want's a bold color the GT3 RS is a better fit. The R should be white, silver or maybe black.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    "So very wrong" ... And would still love the yellow. The R should be the way its owner wants it to be.

    Stripes understated?

    Yeah, they are possible to delete on the order for the understated look which would be my choice.

    I have issues with yellow on all cars, but more so on the R and think it just looks wrong. But each to their own as long as the owner is happy...

    zzzzz

    911 with a stripe. On the other side of the bond, our special edition, limited production striped cars look like this. We've also create a way to include a big wing without it always being up.

    ey ey ey.... I think the car sounds hideous and the behavior tells me that the driver better would have let the electronic Gizmos switched on. I like the green stripes on it.... other than that, just looks like a 911 looks like, hard to tell the difference between R and no R! Not even to think about comparing this car to the GT3 RS which looks a million times better.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Did you guys notice at the video how the launch seems to have problems with traction? The driver has to back off from the gas to get grip enough to then accelerate.... or maybe it was the electronic control of the launch that backed off...
