We are currently using Version R.3.1.0 (Spring Dance) on our SAS server and can use R software within SAS Studio. We also have SAS IML Studio licensed. We would like to obtain a newer version of R that contains the Package "car". I believe R.3.2.5 might contain this package but I'm not sure. Where can I confirm this?
Where does SAS recommend that we obtain the R software from? Someone told me that R was purchased by another company? Will this have any impact on us acquiring the software? We will need to install it on both a Windows and Linux server. Will we need different versions?
Thank you for any guidance that you can provide.

You can usually add packages to R unless there's a dependency on a specific R version. My quick googling doesn't seem to indicate that this is,the case.
What happens if you the code in R, do you get an error?
You can find the relevant version of R here:
R is open source, there is an enterprise version the comes with support, EnterpriseR that had some extra features that was taken over by Microsoft. SQL Server 2016 will be shipping with R installed.
You can download R from r-project.org.
