Porsche‘s sporting elite: more performance, less weight
At auctions they rack up premium prices: the Porsche 911 R and RS models. But the makers never intended to create objects of speculation for maximum profit, but vehicles that would appeal to customers because of their uncompromising sportiness. Customers who take their 911ers to the tracks and willingly do without useless things such as radio and air conditioning.
In 1967 the story begins with the first Porsche 911 R, achieving five new long-distance world records in Monza. And it does not end with the latest 911 R of the 991 series, that is quite aware of its history with its racing stripes, houndstooth bucket seats, manual gear change, and a free-revving naturally aspirated engine. In between lie 50 years, numerous models, and a legion of fans, among them Herbert von Karajan and Reinhard Mey.
