Top speed attempt by Porsche 911R

By Faiming_low on 12 Jun 2016 in Videos

Attached Image U.K. publication EVO went to test out whether the new 911R feels stable on its home ground at its high speed without the use of a large spoiler that comes as standard on its siblings, the 911 GT3/ 911 GT3 RS recently.

Naturally, the test had to be conducted on the autobahn where the car could run to its maximum speed. Watch the video and see how stable the car is as it takes on turns on the highway in excess of 200km/h.

FYI, the naturally aspirated 493bhp 4.0-litre flat six engine is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox and is lighter than the GT3 RS it’s based on, tipping the scales at 1370kg.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

I am thoroughly impressed with the stability but doubt if I ever will drive beyond any speed limits here in Singapore except for occasional overtaking.

 

I would have bought it if was not attention seeking. If it was boxed in a conservative shape, I would have considered. Then again, with the artificial added price to the OMV, is it worth driving such a car in Singapore?

 

To each his or her own.

 

Faiming - special request can have something on Alphard or Velfire or El Grand. Local context. Thanks.
