    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    So, after a little tour with my new darling, to Nürburg ring (did the sports cup there) and to Meuspath (Manthey) and also a detour past Spa and the 24 h race ( just visited this year, had some friends driving) I can now give you a short first review of the GT2 RS.

    In total I drove about 3600 km and mostly (sorry to say) on autobahn. But also some very nice winding roads in the Eifel region. Driving the GT2 on autobahn, with 3-4 krpm is a very nice Experiance compared to doing the same in the GT3. As long as you let the exhaust button be (with that on, the sound is just LAUD....) the car is super comfortable and you can actually listen to the radiokiss But.... This SUPER car is easily doing a bit over 200 mph arround 3,5 krpm and with just a touch with your right foot, it goooooooes. Wow, what a car and the POWER.....angel

    On my way back, after about 1.800 km I started to push the car some more, especially on some free speed sections of the autobahn. Since the Manthey guys gave it some work, it’s now more track adjusted, so you had to be a bit concentrated when you went up to speed. The camber is now quite aggressive, so NOOOO big movement on the stearing wheel in high speed🤪 But some Audi’s (acctually one R8, but black, so not RC😂) and BMW’s challenged me some and even if I don’t race on public roads, I could not resist to press a little on the throttle.

    And my god, it moves ! What an amasing feeling when you ride along in about 220-230 mph and push down. Just f... mindblowing power and speed. This car is just fantastic. Even more so on winding roads with the new set up. I have a little bit more camber back and a lot more camber on the front, the suspension is adjusted Manthey way and I also have the braided break lines and racing break fluid. If you have hair enough on your chest and push the car on winding roads, it just sticks. And soooo nicely agile in the stearing.

    Next step will be to get it out on track, now that the break in is done. Sorry to say, that have to wait a bit since I’m going to be traveling the next five weeks or so. But get back with a more detailed review after I tested tha car in its proper environment, on trackkiss

    Short first impression: Mindblowingly FAST, enormous POWER, AGILE and, if you want it to be, quite CIVILIZED 😍😍😍

    Some pictures of the car and some from Spa 24h pits.

    There goes 200 or the 700hp. Now it’s not that fast.  Funny though the first time I read it I thought the gearing was really low. 3.5krpm at 200 mph leaves a lot of room. Enjoy the speed and stay safe.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    So, finally picked up the car. :-)

    Car is now handed over to PPF installer and I won't get the car back until the 13th of August.



    Some impressions:

    Crazy loud when turbos not building pressure.

    Don't stand behind the car when wife fires it up un-announced 

    Reversing the 2RS is much smoother than the 991.1GT3RS.
    Also creeping a way on first gear is easier than the 991.1RS.

    The bordello roof/interior is not distracting when driving.

    I find the car to be comfortable on our crappy roads. A lot of road noise though.
    (On the other hand when I switched car with wife and got to drive out BMW 520 diesel it felt like I was sitting inside a velvet cushion.)

    Wife noted that she almost fell a sleep driving the BMW but felt terrific after driving the GT2RS.

    The engine feels rawer compared to the .1RS.

    I'm missing the sound of the .1RS gearbox. Maybe it is just to warm over here right now to get that sound of gears being mashed up.

    The fire extinguisher no longer interferes with the passenger seat (Euro club sport).

    The from axel lift is slower (hydraulic) compared to the pneumatic lift in the .1RS - not a big deal.

    I go the Non-WP rims instead of the magnesium's. I'll get the mags later.

    The steering wheel is missing its carbon bits but I got the carbon paddles.

    I got the "No water in tank" message initially but after open/closing cap of the distilled water tank the warning went away.

    The farmer:

    I also have the braided break lines and racing break fluid. 

     

    Congratulations on this unique car and thanks for the review . I have been passed and driven behind a few on tracks and the sound is indeed LOUD !!! Like a king of V8 airplane .

    I have an appointment at Manthey for the end of the month to do the setting on my incoming .2 GT3 RS and have booked the suspension upgrade , alignment , race pads and liquid .  I was hesitating about the braided break line . Do you feel a lot of difference ? Is it worth it ?

    Congratulations Dan ! Smiley You have now the proper beast . You must be thrilled Smiley

    Can we see pics of the bordello interior ? 

    On the .2 GT3 RS , there is also no more gearbox sound Smiley I don't know why they took it away. Some say people complained about the funny noises ... I suppose all the Starbucks drivers Smiley I loved those noises !!!!

    Good about fire extinguisher . I was just asked by dealer if I wanted it installed or keped on the side and I hesitated a lit because if the interference with seat, but then told them to install it . 

    I was not aware the front axel had a new system . Do you know why ? Is it lighter ? 

    All WP GT3 RS are delivered without the carbon on the steering . It will be retrofitted later , but for the moment no date . Probably not before the end of the year or beginning of next . 

    Me and Dave will be at the DN event end of August . Will you be there ?

    What do you think of Mr Cap paint protection coating? Or are you planning for ppf?

    I used their dubai branch for paint protection coating my .1 c2s but after 6 years with lots of hwy driving, the front is covered with rock chips..... don’t know if it is worth it to do a ppf or just go with mr cap coating again  

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Yesterday at my dealer I saw a GT 2 RS with the bordello interior and I thought it looked terrific. The car looks aggressive but refined. Great looking car.kiss

    I have no idea, I'm sorry. They just prepared the car for my Porsche dealer. I don't think they did any coating.

    The car is getting PPF.

    Thanks . I had some installed on my Carrera S and there the difference was very noticeable on brake feel . Nothing spongieux anymore . Direct hard feel .
