What will history make of the Type-991 911 R? At launch it seemed to answer to every purist's dreams. Well, apart from the rear-steer. And the electric steering. And the huge wheels. But we digress. The real issue of late is the appearance of the new GT3 Touring option with its R-like wing delete cosmetic and an improved engine that matches the R's power but adds a few more revs and the promise of better reliability. But then the R is a limited model with the cachet that brings and the realities of the hardware comparison and driving experience probably don't matter. Plus, how do you put a value on those funky stripes? While sir ponders all that, perhaps sir would be partial to this beefy 1:12 scale rendition of the R. It's exquisitely detailed and comes complete with a display base and a limited production run of 500 units. Yours for approximately £550 from www.selectionrs.com.
