White with red stripes revealed as most popular 911 R in Australia

The Internet has revealed every colour and trim combination for the sold-out limited edition Porsche 911 R – including a breakdown of where each was sold nationwide.

Instagram feed ‘rhd911r’ has listed 29 examples of the $404,700 manual-only supercar in the Australia, with 11 in New South Wales, seven in Victoria, four in Queensland, three in South Australia, two in the Australian Capital Territory and one each in Tasmania and Western Australia. A source has since confirmed these as accurate.

Finding five owners each is the white with green stripes combination (three VIC, one each NSW/SA) and GT silver without stripes (two NSW, one each VIC/WA/ACT).

Only three buyers each have purchased black with green stripes (one each ACT/NSW/QLD) and GT silver with red stripes (one each NSW/SA/VIC).

It comes in the same week that Sydney car dealership Scuderia Graziani listed a white version of the 3.8sec 0-100km/h coupe for a staggering $1.2 million – three times its $404K retail price new, and following last year’s prediction by British finance experts Magnitude Finance that the manual-only supercar could stir record levels of used-car appreciation.
