Porsche 911 R May Debut At Geneva

The limited run Porsche 911 R will reportedly debut at the Geneva motor show this March.  If reports are to be believed, the 911 R will be based around the popular GT3 and capped to just 600 units worldwide.

The 911 R will likely come equipped with the 911 GT3’s 3.8-liter flat-six engine that produces 475 hp. That engine will pair up with a manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels. The car’s suspension will be GT3 spec, but tuned to accommodate less aggressive aero. Expect its power-to-weight ratio to match the GT3 RS.

The real headline for the model will be its transmission. While all Porsche 911 models created by the company’s GT division are offered solely with automatic ‘boxes, the 911 R will come standard with a six-speed manual transmission, similar to the Porsche Cayman GT4.
