motoring.com.au: “Has Porsche's iconic 911 gone soft? Not this one – the lightest example of the current breed.”

caranddriver.com: “Porsche has a new 911 R that combines just what you want/need—a hot naturally aspirated engine, six shift-’em-yourself gears, and a clutch pedal all in one tantalizing package.”

ctvnews.ca: “Despite being a decidedly old-school 911, Porsche has carried over two recent technological innovations. The first is rear-wheel steering to keep that pendulous back end in check, and the second is huge carbon ceramic brakes. But considering that this new car will be limited to just 911 numbered examples worldwide even purists will be happy.”

motormag.com.au: “The 911 R cherry picks the juiciest bits from the entire 911 line-up.”

evo.co.uk: “As you can imagine, we can’t wait to drive the new 911 R and give you a full review. For now though, the look and spec alone are enough to get us salivating.”
