The 2016 Porsche 911 R, despite its limited production, quickly gained popularity among dedicated Porsche collectors and automotive enthusiasts worldwide. Porsche designed this car to deliver an exhilarating driving experience.
The 911 R is a limited-production variant, inspired by the 1967 homologation special of the same name. Its design incorporates elements from the contemporary 911 GT3, including features from the GT3 RS such as the magnesium roof panel and carbon-fiber hood.
Powered by a 4-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 911 R is lighter and faster, producing 493 bhp at 8,250 rpm and 333 lb-ft at 6,250 rpm. Many consider it the best 911 of the modern era. Only 991 examples of the Porsche 911 R were made during a single year production run and one of them is currently available for purchase on Merit Partners.
This particular example boasts a Paint to Sample Aetna Blue exterior over a Black and Tarpan Brown leather interior. There are fewer than 100 Paint to Sample examples worldwide, with even fewer in the United States—this being the sole Aetna Blue model in the country.
Apart from the unique exterior color, the interior is finished in the rare Tarpan Brown. Desirable options include a Single Mass Fly Wheel, Front Axel Lift, Radio Delete, Sport Chrono Package, 20″ GT3 Wheels, Extended Range Fuel Tank, Light Design Package and more.
Originally delivered to Porsche Colorado Springs with an MSRP of $222,560, the car has had only two owners since new. Meticulously maintained, it remains in excellent condition both inside and out. The purchase includes the original window sticker, books, and paint-matched keys.
With only 4,552 miles and in superb condition, this Porsche 911 R, featuring a paint-to-sample finish, is a highly sought-after limited-run driver’s car. It quickly became a collectible performance icon and would be an excellent addition to any marque collector’s garage. While it deserves its place among collectibles, it is also ready to provide thrills to its next owner on the road or the track.
