Wearing the "LB A 4025" (yes, the 911 R can spark this kind of obsession in a human) plate, this is a Porsche car. In fact, those of you following our 911 R stories have also seen this example of the manual-gifted Neunelfer in the article on the 911 R four-car Monaco parade.
So this isn't the first spotting of a 911 R that's being manhandled by its owner out in the wild. Guess we still have some waiting to do until one of the 991 units of the driver-savvy 911 reaches that point.
Instead, according to the GT Scotland Facebook page, whom we have to thank for these pics, Top Gear Magazine recently enjoyed a Porsche stint on Scotland's Knockhill Racing Circuit.
Returning to the R derivative of the 911, if you had the financial possibilities to acquire one, but didn't end up among the chosen ones, you shouldn't expect anything positive from the speculation market.
To be more precise, a 911 R ended up on eBay back in April, being offered for a 918 Spyder-rivaling $1,25 million.
Fortunately, though, Porsche has learned its stick shift lesson. So the German automaker will gift the upcoming 991.2 incarnation of the 911 GT3, a car you'll actually be able to buy, with a clutch pedal. Given the details we've seen in the latest 2017 GT3 spyshots, you'd better consolidate the relationship to your financial adviser soon.
