While it may be endangered, the manual transmission is not going extinct any time soon. You can’t deny the abilities of the GT3 RS, but automatic transmissions make for a very different driving experience. So, Porsche is giving the 991 series a proper send off by taking the 500 horsepower, naturally aspirated 4.0 liter and bolting it to a seven speed manual. The 2016 Porsche 911 R is the featherweight car of your dreams. A magnesium roof along with carbon fiber body panels keep the curb weight at 3,021 lbs.
Dual mass flywheels are a plague that kills performance. The 911 R arrives with a traditional single mass wheel and a heavy duty pressure plate. The low slung body is essentially the same as the GT3 so the front axle lift will keep the spoiler from scraping. Also adopted from the GT3 is the trick rear wheel steering system. They turn opposite of the fronts at slow speeds for the ultimate in cornering grip. Only 991 examples were produced so don’t let the opportunity pass you by.
