2K-Mile 2016 Porsche 911R 6-Speed #405

We are pleased to present this 2016 Porsche 911 R finished in white over a black and Tarpan Brown leather interior.  Introduced in 2016 and limited to a production run of only 991 units for the entire world, the 911 R represents one of the rarest and most collectible Porsche 911’s in recent years.  Marking one of only 273 cars delivered to the United States, this 2016 example showcases exclusive options including the Front Axle Lift System and a single-mass flywheel with reinforced clutch.  Preserved under top-of-the line protective coatings while highlighting some subtle custom details, this one-owner 911 R is now being offered for auction in like-new condition showing approximately 2,700 miles on the odometer.

This 911 R is factory finished in white with distinctive matte green racing stripes.  When new, this 911 was sent to Detailing Dynamics to receive a full paint correction before it was completely enveloped in Xpel paint protective film.  The original racing stripes were removed prior to the paint correction and new OEM stripes were then installed to factory spec before a double application of ceramic coating.  The exterior is said to be in like-new condition as could be seen in the images provided in the photo gallery.  Other added details include Heat Rejection XRP Plus 70% window tint, ClearPlex windshield protection, clear side marker lenses and medium taillight tint.  The PCCB brake calipers were also professionally refinished in black through an authorized Porsche dealership.

In an effort to maximize weight savings, the 911 R utilizes carbon fiber for its front fenders and luggage compartment lid, magnesium for its roof and titanium for its exhaust.  A simplified speed-activated rear spoiler also works in conjunction with a fixed underbody diffuser for optimized aerodynamics.  This example has been equipped with the Front Axle Lift System which enables the nose of the car to be raised and lowered when traversing obstacles.  Factory gloss-black finished center lock wheels are retained which come dressed in fresh Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

Inside, this 911 R features a black and Tarpan Brown leather interior with houndstooth upholstered carbon fiber bucket seats.  The cabin is said to be in in pristine condition with some custom details including Tarpan Brown seat bolster covers, Tarpan Brown seatbelt loops and a Tarpan Brown luggage compartment liner.  An Escort Max Ci 360 radar detector has also been installed along with a backup camera.  Special details include vintage-inspired houndstooth seat inserts, black faced gauges with light green markings and a factory limitation placard denoting this example as #405.  An original window sticker totaling over $213k highlights the following exclusive options:

  • Extended Range Fuel Tank, 23.9 Gal
  • Single-Mass Flywheel with Reinforced Clutch
  • 911 R Limitation Number
  • Front Axle Lift System
  • Air Conditioning
  • Luggage Net in Passenger Footwell
  • Light Design Package
  • Sport Chrono Package (Porsche Track Precision App)
  • Telephone Module
  • Voice Control
  • BOSE Surround Sound System
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Navtraffic, Navweather, And HD Radio™ Receiver
  • 911 R Stripes in Green
  • Authentic Leather
  • Carbon Fiber Floor Mats with Leather Edging
  • Side Stripes with Porsche Script In Green
  • Vehicle Key Painted and Key Pouch in Leather
  • Auto-Dimming Mirrors with Integrated Rain Sensor
  • Porsche Communication Management (PCM) Incl. Navigation Module
  • Online Services
  • Wheels Painted in Black (High-Gloss)
  • LED Headlights in Black with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
  • SportDesign Exterior Mirror Upper Trim in Carbon Fiber
  • Door-Sill Guards in Carbon Fiber, Illuminated

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 4.0 L flat-six engine which is rated at 500 HP.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission with an optional single-mass flywheel and reinforced clutch, making for a 0-60 time of approximately 3.7 seconds.  Standard performance features include special lightweight components, a limited-slip differential and PCCB ceramic composite brakes which offer brutal stopping power.  Reported to be in like-new driving condition with one routine oil change carried out since delivery, this 911 R is ready to be enjoyed.

In a 2016 Motor Trend article it was said that “...the R is king of the 911 experience; it's the purest expression of a sports car we've seen in an entire generation of Porsches."

The sale of this 911 R will include a set of two keys, the original books and tools, service records, factory side markers, the original window sticker and a Porsche car cover.  Do not miss your chance to own this outstanding 2016 911 R.

    @dinotom1 Yes, showing so buyers can get a feel for how hot this looks with Satin Aluminum wheels with proper black calipers. Two different looks. Car comes with original gloss black wheels only.

  • dinotom1 (registered bidder) 5 days, 10 hoursago

    @Bluehorseshoe showing for informational purposes only? Listing shows rims ordered in gloss black. Silver rims coming with the car as well?

    @Bluehorseshoe : I got mine w/out stripes for the same reason...don’t like the added attention with stripes. Just my feeling not judgmental. To each his own. I had an early McLaren but it was too in your face for my tastes. What I like about this 991R is that in public it looks like any other Porsche unless you look closer and know your Porsches. In my view this is the only daily driver hyper performance car on the market. Good selling.

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 weekago

    @marshgator Non-metallic black. Not quite as attractive nor elegant as the classic non-metallic white (with matte green stripes and natural Tarpan Brown leather interior) but I've been looking for something that I'm able to daily drive. The white with stripes is a very special. A real show piece. But I don't like the extra attention. If reserve isn't met and I wind up keeping this one, I plan to remove green stripes and go with solid black side stripes just like the original R. Enjoy your GT Silver! It's such a great Porsche color.

  • marshgator 1 weekago

    @Bluehorseshoe : what color is your other 991R? Mine is silver w/out stripes and clear brake lens. < 2k miles. Love this light weight rocket that handles like a go cart. Best I’ve ever driven and owned. Good selling?

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 weekago

    @Pasadena When cars come from the factory the paint is far from perfect. Especially visible on non-metallic colors, the paint has spider webbing and other superficial imperfections, usually no deeper than the clear coat. Paint correction is a process which makes the paint as near perfect as possible. I have this done prior to covering all painted surfaces with paint protection film to preserve pristine paintwork.

    There are no mechanical modifications to this 911R. And no other cosmetic modifications aside from gloss black calipers, and medium tinted rear taillights and reflectors.

  • JAM2 (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    Paint correction is a full detail which removes imperfections in the paint (I.e. swirls, surface scratches, etc.). It’s usually done prior to applying the paint protection film.

  • Pasadena 1 weekago

    “Car paint corrected...”. What does that mean? Any other after market modifications other than the brakes and tail lights?

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @PorscheGuys I believe that I also have the original rear reflectors in red.

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    The taillights were professionally sprayed by Mario at ProFormance. I have clears or can give you the reds. Car came with reds but my ocd tendencies drove me a little nuts. Couldn't take green, red and yellow.
    The wheels were never touched, straight from the factory in gloss black.

  • PorscheGuys (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @PorscheGuys Have the wheels ever been re-painted ?

  • PorscheGuys (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @Bluehorseshoe - The taillights we’re painted ?
    What is the original red or .... clear ... ?
    Thanks

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @PorscheGuys Tint on rear lights and reflectors is paint.

    I'm selling because I have another 911R.
    Never tracked. Never above 6k RPMs before 2k miles. Been near redline 3-4 times total. Babied.
    I had DME checked upon initial delivery but would be happy to have it checked as condition of sale. Can personally guarantee no over revs.
    Yes, that was my Speedster that sold last week.

  • PorscheGuys (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @PorscheGuys .....typo.... meant .. “Why are you selling the car”.

  • PorscheGuys (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @Bluehorseshoe RE taillights and reflectors - Ok, then they tinted sticker type of covering ?
    What are you selling the car ?
    Has it been on a track ?
    Has it been checked, DME, for any over revs ?
    BTW, did you have that 991.2 GT Silver Speedster on this site just recently ?
    Thanks ...

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @PorscheGuys Clear European front side markers were added. Rear taillights and rear reflectors have a medium tint.

  • PorscheGuys (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    The dark taillight lenses aren’t standard 911R factory...
    Also front side markers, are clear lenses, those aren’t standard 911R factory ..
    Don’t see as an option, on the build sheets.
    Any idea ... ?
    I do like the look though ...

    Got car up on lift last night and added video of underbody and picture of engine tray. Pristine condition.

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @K997 Thank you.

  • K997 1 week, 1 dayago

    @Bluehorseshoe fair point ! The car is stunning and I’m certain it will find an awesome home.

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @K997 Calipers are an easy fix. But it would be a sin to ever change them from black. They are perfect. Save the exact original for the people who want to park their cars in a museum somewhere.

  • K997 1 week, 1 dayago

    The car is gorgeous and a dream. It’s a shame you painted the calipers however since the car is no longer original spec (although I completely understand why you did it).

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @aaar35 Thank you! Searched two years for this exact spec. Not many made white/green/Tarpan.

    @BeauneYard Whatever it was damaged occurred either at the factory or during transportation to the dealer. They assured me it was replaced upon CPO. I have pictures and will have them posted ASAP. I can assure you there was no damage to any part of the vehicle upon delivery.

  • BeauneYard (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    Please clarify Dec. 30, 2016 repair: “DURING A-PREP FOUND ENGINE BELL PAN/COVER DAMAGED, LOOKS LIKE VEHICLE DRUG ON SOMETHING”. Do you have pictured of the undercarriage?

    @ACSATCO Thanks!

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    A few more notes about this particular 911R. It's been totally babied. Never tracked. Never parked in the sun. Always garaged. Been to redline only a handful of times. And properly broken-in. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better cared for car for sale today.

    I'm selling because I have another 911R. (I'd never be without a 911R.) If money and space were not an issue, I'd never sell this one as it's the quintessential spec: white, matte green stripes and authentic natural Tarpan Brown leather. Interior elements.

    The calipers were painted by one of the top body shops in the country to factory spec. And one of the most highly regarded Porsche techs in the country literally came to my house to both remove and install the brake calipers. The car never left the confines of my garage. The brake calipers were painted in black as black was the first color used on Porsche brake calipers. A reference to the original 911. I'd argue, this car should've come from the factory with black calipers. They just look proper.

  • ACSATCO (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    nice one ;)

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    A few notes about this 911R
    1. This was a dealer exec car and was brand new when I took delivery in April 2019. Had the car Certified at time of purchase. Original in service date is 12/8/2016. Warranty goes through 12/8/20. Factory Certified Warranty goes through 12/8/22.
    2. Carfax states this car has been to Porsche of Danbury twice. That's incorrect. Car's never been to Porsche of Danbury. They used the VIN incorrectly when I dropped off wheels for other cars for mounting/balancing.
    3. Car was serviced one time while in my possession. Oil service performed at Porsche of Fairfield at 2,000 miles. I follow strict break-in procedures. I never exceeded 6k RPMs before this oil service.
    4. All books and records will come with this purchase. I have them all.

  • Bluehorseshoe (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    ELV: Yes, car is fully wrapped in paint protection film. Stripes were completely removed. Car paint corrected and fully wrapped in Xpel Ultimate. OEM stripes reapplied to factory spec and then the car received two coats of Ceramic Pro. All work performed by Detailing Dynamics in 2019.
