In a true driver’s car, nothing is added to deaden feedback from the road or dull driver involvement. A driver’s car isn’t overpowered or burdened by unnecessary equipment and details. And a driver’s car must be packaged as a car that can be lived with day to day — it lives on real roads, not on the track. You’ll find no better example on the road today than the Porsche 911 R.
Porsche gave the 911 R the GT3 RS engine, mated it to a good old-fashioned six-speed analog manual and then kept all the excess aerodynamic bodywork on the shelves. The 911 R is the purest form of Porsche, distilled even further. Which might be why some of them are already hitting million-dollar resale values.
