Used 911 R selling nearly seven times more than retail price

By Faiming_low on 25 Jul 2016 in Other News

Attached Image Prices of the Porsche 911 R have rocketed so high that used examples are selling for up to seven times the car's original list price as reported by Autocar. When it went for sale in the U.K, it was retailing at around S$240,000 five months ago but since then, the publication has seen ads on the used market listing the special edition 911 for around S$1.8 million.

Limited in supply, the driver-focused 991 sold out before the vehicle's global premiere. Demand for it was high as the vehicle was also considered to be the last of its breed, running a naturally-aspirated six-cylinder engine that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.

However, with the launch of the facelifted 991.2 GT3 that will have a manual gearbox option coming soon, the 911 R might lose its speciality unless Porsche decides to turbocharge the 991.2 GT3, leaving the 911 R as the last naturally-aspirated hardcore 911 with a stick shift.
