The air is thick with the scent of petrol, asphalt, and hot brakes, telling tales of historic races, victories, and speed records. Introducing the extraordinary Porsche 911 R, the first-ever racing version of the iconic Porsche 911, and still the lightest 911 ever built.

The inception of the 911 R traces back to Ferdinand Piëch, the visionary head of R&D at Porsche and nephew of Ferdinand Porsche. His ambitious goal: to craft a true racing car based on the 911 model.

Embarking on a mission to shed weight, Ferdinand collaborates with racing mechanic Rolf Wütherich. Every unnecessary gram is eliminated – sound insulation, glass windows, and metal body panels. Only the steel bodyshell remains, meticulously drilled like Swiss cheese to save more weight. Even the inside door handles are swapped with simple plastic straps. The rear lights are modified for a lighter design. This persistence results in a staggering weight reduction of 230 kg, with the Porsche 911 R weighing in at a mere 800 kg.

The next crucial step is the engine. The car is equipped with a 6-cylinder boxer engine used in the Porsche 906 and 916, delivering 210 hp at 8000 rpm. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and covering a one-kilometer distance in just 24.2 seconds, the 911 R outpaces the Porsche 904 Carrera GTS by one second and the iconic Alfa Romeo GTA by five seconds.

To qualify for racing, Porsche needs to produce at least 500 units. Skeptics deem it impossible due to the hefty price tag of 45,000 DM, nearly double that of the 911S. Unfortunately, only 19 vehicles are created, and the 911 R doesn't secure the GT homologation it deserves. Nonetheless, it proves its mettle primarily as a rally car and prototype.

The Porsche 911 R emerges victorious, outpacing the Alfa Romeo GTA and Ford GT40 MK III while coming remarkably close to the formidable Matra's 12-cylinder prototype beasts. It also sets five new long-distance speed records, including the remarkable achievement of covering 20,000 km at Monza at an average speed of 209 km/h. The Porsche 911 R stands as a testament to the relentless pursuit of speed and excellence.
