There is a lot to be said and get excited about when we the subject of the conversation is the new Porsche 911 R. But for us one thing above all else makes the new sports car a stuff of dreams, and that is heritage. Porsche uses the ‘R’ badge once every light year, so there is a great sense of occasion about this car.

Just like the original, the new Porsche 911 R is a back-to-basics, no-nonsense sports car stripped out of everything you can do without and fitted with a naturally aspirated engine and a manual gearbox. That said, you can’t expect the same sense of drama you would find in the 1967 model in the new boy. After all, it’s a product of the 21st century. But still, the R is as close as you can get to the pure, unadulterated sensation of driving areal sports machine.

While we’re at it, let’s have an in-depth look at the Porsche 911 R brought to you by the good folks at Evo:

Just to recap, the four-liter flat-six engine in the 911 R makes 500 horsepower which is delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h. The base price for this limited edition model is $184,900.
