Chassis No. WP0AF2A92GS195285 There are some cars so perfectly suited to the era in which they were created that they become representative of not just the ethos of the manufacturer but of what is key to an entire generation of automobile enthusiasts. The 2016 Porsche 911 R is one such car. Built in limited numbers, it was an immediate hit with both Porsche collectors and automotive enthusiasts in general. It was so desirable, in fact, that it ultimately normalized the idea of allocations and waitlists for those interested in purchasing the most desirable Porsche models and was the first jewel in the crown for 918 Spyder Circle members. The 911 R featured the 4.0-liter, 500-horsepower engine from the GT3 RS, a newly developed six-speed manual transmission, ceramic composite brakes, carbon fiber body panels, titanium exhaust, and a magnesium roof panel. Every magazine or YouTube channel that could source a press car raved about the sound, power, and purity of driving experience the new 911 R created for those fortunate enough to sit behind the wheel. Integral to that experience was a Porsche's six-speed 'GT Sport' manual transmission ľ newly developed exclusively for the 911 R. This new six-speed GT Sport manual tightened the ratios and shortened the throws, creating a connection between driver and car in a way no PDK-equipped Porsche truly could. As amazing as it sounds, this transmission is credited with saving both the manual transmission option at Porsche and the immersive experience derived from it. Ordered new by well-respected Porsche collector Jan Koum, this 911 R was delivered through Carlsen Porsche of Redwood City, California in Porsche's official 'Communication Color' of White with Red stripes as worn by the 2016 Geneva Motor Show press car. As one might expect from a Porsche VVIP, this vehicle was nicely optioned with over $26,000 in additional extras including a single-mass flywheel with reinforced clutch, extended-range fuel tank, Light Design Package, and Sport Chrono Package. Equipped with lightweight-bucket seats trimmed in Black leather with houndstooth inserts, this 911 R features deviated stitching in GT Silver throughout the cabin with carbon fiber door-sill guards and the incredibly rare radio-delete option ensuring there are no disruptions between the driver and the glorious flat-six engine note. With an original MSRP of $212,635, this example is offered for sale with merely 94 miles at the time of cataloging. Under previous ownership, a professional service in September of 2022 reportedly included an oil change, brake fluid flush, and replacing the rear hood struts. Accompanied by a clean CARFAX report, this Porsche also includes both main keys. Rare is the opportunity to acquire an era-defining supercar like the 911 R, let alone with the odometer showing just over delivery mileage, yet this R has, in effect, leapt from the brochure pages allowing the future owner to turn the daydreams of 2016 into reality today.
