2016 Porsche 911 R

What would the Geneva Motor Show be without a tribute debut from Porsche? Well, that was the mentality of the automotive manufacturer when they engineered this handsome 2016 Porsche 911 R (‘R’ for racing of course). And from the looks of this vehicle, they surely didn’t disappoint. This tribute pays respect to the original 911 R, the model that placed Porsche on the map in competitive racing.

Now, limited to just 991 units worldwide, it’s loaded with a 4-liter naturally aspired flat-six engine pushing 500 horsepower, the same power found in the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS Models. The 911 R gets you from 0-60 in just 3.7 seconds and maxes out at 200 mph. And you know this wouldn’t be a proper racing tribute without bucket seats, which is why Porsche souped up their bucket seating with carbon fiber backrests and seat centers that match the 60s 911 houndstooth design. They’re set to hit the market later this year, priced at $184,900. Check out the video below to see this thing in action. [Purchase]
