Porsche Fans Rejoice: The Next Special Edition 911 Will Be A Retro One

Classic Cars / 37 Comments

It's going to look amazing and cost a sh** load.

Purists have been wanting Porsche to make a reborn, classic 911 for the sake of reliving the good ol' days for a while now. Well, it seems that Porsche has finally responded as reports out of the Netherlands say it's working on a retro-looking 911 with a manual transmission. Said car could debut next year at either the Goodwood Festival of Speed or the 24 Hours of Le Mans. News of the car leaked at the recent Rennsport Reunion in California, as did its name, the 911R. That's taken from the 1967 911R, folks.

It's said that the 911R will look like the current 911 GT3 minus the rear wing, front splitter and other luxuries. Expect the engine to be either a 3.8-liter flat-six from the GT3 or the 4.0-liter variant from the GT3RS. Pricing details haven't been announced but all 600 to 800 units have reportedly sold out; they were put up for sale at the Rennsport Reunion. Hooray for expensive nostalgia!
