The First Porsche 911 R Is About to Touch Down Stateside

Brace yourself for sticker shock

There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like driving a Porsche 911.

I think the fellas over at Cool & Vintage put it best when they said, “Porsche has always been about the connection between man and machine. You really can’t beat that raw emotion.”

And if you’ve had the great fortune of being behind the wheel of one, you know. You know that the guttural feeling of power and freedom that comes with the 911’s oh-so-identifiable engine is about as much fun as you can have with pants on.

So when we learned that the first Porsche 911 R is about to dock in California, we were tickled. And when we see that it comes with a $699,000 price tag, we were not surprised. It’s worth it. Worth it being a relative term that assumes you are the type of person who wants (and can afford) one of the most intelligent machines on earth.

And if you haven’t had the opportunity to pilot this steed, find one. It’s the driving equivalent of winning the Super Bowl.
