The Porsche 911 R has already been trying to be a collectible.
Introduced earlier this season at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Porsche 911 R was billed as a purist’s low rider, sporting a 4.0-liter flat-six engine with 500 horsepower and 338 pound-feet of torque. As the engine is borrowed from the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the highlight of the special model was the fact it had been available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission, which isn’t offered with the GT3 RS any more. The end result? A low rider with no flashy rear spoiler of the GT3 RS, a zero-to-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds and a high speed of 200 mph.
In the U.S., the Porsche 911 R demanded a cost of $185,950 including destination. That’s already out of take the common car enthusiast, but you could be surprised to know what they’re already selling for on the used car market.
