Porsche's new 911 R combines the cache of a vintage sports car with the performance and amenities of a modern machine.
Classic Porsche 911s are hot right now. You know, scratch that. Saying they're hot doesn't quite do it justice. They're worth their weight in gold.
Certainly, it'd be fun to own a 50-year-old Porsche that costs as much as the average home in the U.S. However, driving a car built before antilock brakes, the proliferation of power steering and — most importantly — Bluetooth can be exhausting.
Thankfully, Porsche has combined the best of its old-school charm with the modern motoring essentials we've come to rely on. It's called the 911 R and it might be the best brand-new vintage machine you can own.
