You Can Buy Three Singer Porsches For The Price Of This Used 911 R

Illustration for article titled You Can Buy Three Singer Porsches For The Price Of This Used 911 R

The 911 R is a fantasy Porsche, a naturally-aspirated and manual only piece of rolling art in an age of PDK transmissions and ultimate lap times. It also came with a not-too-shabby starting price of $185,000, but collectors are going to collect. Now the ultimate 911 has an asking price of $1.3 million on the used market.


Not long ago we found a 911 R on eBay from a questionable seller with an asking price of $1.25 million. We thought this was a bit crazy, but apparently, the current market conditions are not far off.


Motoring Research recently spoke with Magnitude Finance supercar finance experts in the UK, and they claim that 911 R prices are commanding more than £800,000 on the secondhand market.

“We believe this is a record level of appreciation for a new car based on a percentage of its original value...We spoke to several Porsche specialist dealers and they confirmed the cars are commanding close to £1 million ($1.3 million USD) but they can’t list them at this amount.” - said Magnitude head Tim Marlow

The 911 R is selling for over seven times its original sticker price—a level of appreciation is greater than the ultra-limited edition LaFerrari. With only 991 examples of the R available, and the fact that the collectable Porsche market is absolutely bonkers, it’s really no surprise to see these cars skyrocket so fast.

Personally, if I had way too much money to spend on a Porsche, I’d opt for a few classics reimagined by Singer in a variety of their wonderful colors, because the R is only available in boring white, with or without tacky stripes.


There, I said it. And I don’t care of the stripes are “historic” they are tacky.

I would get a regular GT3 (PDK) and an ‘85 Targa (manual) with $1million left over and then come straight to jalopnik to gloat about it. Oh wait I ALREADY DO!
