The Porsche 991 R was first introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Whilst it was mechanically comparable to the Porsche 991 GT3 RS, it had a slightly different philosophy; one that focussed on creating the most enjoyable driving experience possible.
This was achieved with a steadfast focus upon reducing weight and entailed producing the 991 R only with a manual transmission saving approximately 20kg. The R also utilises an abundance of lightweight materials such as a carbon fibre bonnet and front wings along with a magnesium roof as well as polycarbonate rear screen and rear side windows.
Notable Automotive are thrilled to offer this iconic Porsche 991 R for sale.
This UK supplied example was delivered new through Porsche Solihull in September 2016 and is offered in the launch colour combination of white with red stripes. This R features a high specification that includes the 918 Bucket Seats, Front-Axle Lift and the frequently requested and much sought-after single-mass flywheel.

All servicing has been carried out by Porsche Solihull on time and in accordance with the manufacturer's recommended schedule.
