Porsche 991 R

Porsche 991 R

Selon les premiers éléments, il semblerait que cette 911 R n’ait pas le droit au turbo qui se généralise depuis le restylage sur le modèle. Elle reprendrait en effet le "flat six" 3.8 litres de la dernière 911 GT3, atmosphérique donc, et développant 475 ch. Le tout associé à une boîte... manuelle ! 600 EXEMPLAIRES... DÉJÀ TOUS VENDUS ? A suivre.


Power is believed to come from the 911 GT3, so expect to find a six-cylinder 3.8-liter naturally aspirated motor with 475 PS (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. Unlike the GT3 which has a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the R version is believed to come with a six-speed manual gearbox to the delight of purists and word on the street says it will ride on skinnier tires. While the 911 GT3 weighs 1,430 kg (3,152 lbs), the R version is supposed to be significantly lighter, but it's not known at this point how the weight loss has been achieved.

There's no word on pricing just yet, but the rumor mill says Porsche plans on making 600 units.

Coming soon at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show ....
