Where have you gone, 911 R? In terms of value, of course. The most heavily speculated Porsche 911 in a long time had a wild ride of instant value rise up to $600,000 and sometimes $700,000, only for it to crash and burn after Porsche announced a GT3 Touring with a 6-speed manual. Suddenly, we were seeing sale prices on 500-mile cars for only $35,000 over sticker, not $350,000. Still, there are few enough 911 R examples out there that dealers can collude to keep prices high, until a private owner needs money and decides making $50,000 for doing nothing is good enough. Today’s example, a car with 2,000 miles up for sale in Florida, still has a giant asking price.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the 911 R. I love that it’s unsuspecting. I love that you can option it to bare bones. I love that Porsche even considered building this because they certainly didn’t have to. However, I don’t believe it is worth $130,000 over sticker. Not with the GT3 Touring existing for under sticker. This example seems to be one of the stripped models with just the front-axle and radio. The only thing “special” about the car in terms of specs is the brown buckets with matching houndstooth inserts. That is it.
Like mentioned, this one is $339,900. Why? No idea. It is a completely made up number that really has no legs to stand on if you try to justify it with comps. There area few for sale in Europe right now a little under this price, but again, that is totally a shot in the dark. I’m sure if you started turning over enough rocks you’d find some private owners willing to sells theirs with the first number starting with a 2.
