911R or hybrid hypercar
« on: October 23, 2016, 09:49:56 am »
911Rs are trading hands in the 7 figure range...... what would you pick?

You know I love a doomed project so I'd have to try and fail to build something better. Of the actual cars I think I'd go 911R over the rest

7 figures for a 911R is idiotic.

If I were to spend 7 imaginary figures on a Porsche, it'd have to be on a 918 Spyder, RWB 993, and my new personal favorite,  the

P1 easy.

But the real answer is a Superformance GT-40, my current dream car.

As much as I love the 911R, at 7 figures it's not going to be a daily driver for me, not to mention the fact that you're paying so much for a parts bin Porsche (best of the best, mind you, but still).

The hypercars don't interest me at all. I'd get a Singer.

People who can buy 1M cars probably don't have daily commutes or only just one car.....

Singers are parts bin cars too :lol:

I would probably do an extreme Singer for the money though. 964 RSR replica

Singers aren't selling for 7 figures, and if I got a 911R or something like that, I'd want to drive it daily. Knowing that it's irreplaceable doesn't help, though. Crash a Singer and they'll build you another one if you have the $$$.

Yeah, Singer's are also parts bin cars by that definition, but they're the best of the best across ALL generations of 911.
