Porsche has always been known to create a special edition 911 for every occasion. The 911 R is probably the most exorbitant priced special edition 911 model; it could reach up to $1 million. However, CarBuzz has found a more “basic” example at about $600,000.
The 911 R may be expensive but there are only 991 models in the world, so it is quite of a rare vehicle. But, it appears that there is a 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing Edition that is even rarer than the 911 R.
This model is more than a normal Carrera S with its nice option sheet along with some Le Mans-inspired stickers on its exterior. Although this car cost about $26,000 more than a regular Carrera S, it comes with carbon fiber interior trim, red seat belts, and unique embroidery.
The model came standard with the Sport Chrono package, sports exhaust, and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) which incorporates the PASM Sports Chassis. According to the report, only 235 versions of it were built; 100 came to North America and US received 73.
It Gets Better
CarBuzz reports that they found an Endurance Racing Edition online that was asking for $449,501. The car has had 678 miles on it but the price seemed to be way too much.
It was only after clicking on the listing that they found out that this model is the only Endurance Racing Edition in North America that came with the seven-speed manual transmission.
This car is genuine as the owner had even posted up a copy of the letter from Porsche confirming its rarity by stating that, “this VIN is the only Endurance Racing Edition with a manual transmission. All other cars in my search have option code 250 (PDK Transmission).”
Well, if you ask us, the asking price is still quite expensive, despite the car’s rarity. Do you think its $450,000 price tag is acceptable?
