porsche hangout Porsche 911 R: Screw The Stats, This Is An Experience

With only 991 of them made. What makes it so special? While I’ve seen a few in the flesh so to speak, I am yet to drive in one. This in my mind looks like a super understated performance beast, while not designed for the track I believe it would do quite well regardless.

Here are some of the stats that we should not worry about but enjoy the ride 🙂
