When we are talking about Germans, most of us think that they’re a serious kind of people. Usually in their formal business attire, we think of them as those who can work all day without paying attention to the passing time itself. However, this is actually a misconception since most of them are lounging on the countryside where we decide to drive the German Company’s creation, the 2016 Porsche 911 R.
Under the Hood
Featuring an exotic kind of sports car, the 2016 Porsche 911 R has a 4-liter DOHC flat six equipped with a rear-wheel drivetrain and a six-speed manual transmission. This is a very impressive feat for car experts who really want to control their driving more than what an automatic transmission could offer them. The 2016 911 R’s maximum power is said to be at least 500 horsepower along with a 338 pound-foot torque. Needless to say, if you think about engine power, this one should definitely fit your list.
It’s also interesting to point out that the acceleration time is nonetheless for a typical sports car, which is 3.5 seconds. The top speed also is very impressive, given that it could run seamlessly at 201 mph. And in addition to all of that, the engine also emits a nice and low engine tone. Having a manual transmission means that the car is designed for those who want to enjoy the car as a driving partner. This time, the company wants to tell everybody that this one is designed in order to enjoy driving by itself.
The only problem about this one is that the 2016 Porsche 911 R isn’t a new line of available sports cars made by the company itself. It is only a very special edition sports car, meaning that the production of this one is only limited. So chances are that you can’t easily avail it, even if you manage to have the means to pay for it. But maybe, the company will decide to produce it if there’s an available market, isn’t it?
