The 911 series keeps adding hitters and the Porsche 911 R is no exception. The 911 R’s history begins in 1967 and the race car was “entered in rallies, in the Targa Florio and in world record runs,” according to a press release. The new 911 R will keep the racing tradition alive and is composed of a “systematic lightweight construction” coupled with high-level performance and a focus on driver experience.

The 911 R’s focus is the track, which is exhibited in its ability to hand corners thanks to “specially tuned standard rear-axle steering which offers direct turn-in response and precise handling while maintaining a high level of stability,” according to a press release. The race car comes in at 3021 pounds, shaving off 110 pounds than that of the 911 GT3 RS. Interestingly, the car comes without AC or a stereo system, but Porsche is glad to add these features at no cost.

The 911 R is limited to just 991 examples so if this one is on your list, you’ll need to act fast. Stay tuned for more Geneva Motor Show updates.
