Flat-six naturally aspirated engine.

From its 4-liter displacement it delivers 500 hp, corresponding to an output of 125 hp per liter. Maximum torque is 346 lb.-ft..
6-speed GT sport manual transmission.
Manual transmission with 6 performance-oriented gear ratios and rev-matching function. This means plenty of hand- and footwork with extremely short shift travels and extremely precise gearshifts.
The focus here is not on shaving tenths of a second off lap times on the Nordschleife, but on pure driving pleasure and unfiltered emotion. This is Porsche driving the way it used to be.
The luggage compartment lid and fenders are made from carbon fiber-reinforced plastic and the roof is made from magnesium.
The climate control and infotainment system have been dispensed with – but are available at no extra charge upon request. The rear seating area has also been omitted. Lightweight door panels with door opener loops and reduced insulating elements also contribute to the lightweight construction.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).
The crucial advantage of the ceramic brake system is its extremely low weight.
The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs have a diameter of 410 mm at the front and 390 mm at the back – for even better braking power.
The use of the yellow six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers on the front axle and four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers on the rear axle ensures very high and, above all, constant brake pressure during deceleration. Safety is also increased thanks to the excellent fading stability.
The chassis of the new 911 R is based on the 911 GT3 and provides extremely sporty day-to-day driving. The tuning is extremely direct and the vehicle lies as low as the 911 GT3. All chassis control systems have been adapted to the manual transmission. The 911 R features the following systems:
• Rear-axle steering
• Dynamic engine mounts
• Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM – 30 mm)
• Porsche Stability Management (PSM)
• Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV)
The 911 R stands on 20-inch 911 GT3 wheels in matte aluminum with central lock. Ultra-high performance tires help to provide the necessary grip.*
*There is increased danger of aquaplaning on wet roads due to the low tread depth.
Interior design based on a historical role model.
Full bucket seats made from carbon fiber with cloth center section in houndstooth checkered pattern. With its lightweight construction and purism, the new 911 R honors its historical role model.
The sport steering wheel in leather features a black 12-o'clock marking. The instruments evoke the Porsche design of the 1960s, when the digits and increment markings were green and the pointers were white.
The 911 R logo on the tachometer is adapted from the historic 911 R. The carbon fiber trim strips embody the lightweight construction theme. And the limited edition badge on the trim strip above the glove compartment symbolizes the uniqueness of the vehicle.
The specially developed leather interior in Black/Natural Brown two-tone leather is available upon request. The characteristic Brown leather has retained its natural texture with grains and irregularities.
