    The bumblebee paint job does the car no favors.

    nberry:

    Nick is right, you need a black exterior for this car. It looks like they kept on adding styling pieces to distinguish it from the 3RS. The result is absmal. surprise

    I'd consider having the front cover painted matching blue on that car...

    I like bright flashy sport cars. I could not drive this except on a track. It is ridiculous on the road.

    Sad to say, but it looks like a clown car.

    It is a 2 cm curb. No wonder. If this person has driven a 911 prior they would have some idea of the overhang in front. This is not a good Porsche to learn with. Lol.

    I agree. Why do people like how the GT3 RS looks but not the GT2 RS? Doesn't make sense to me. Smiley Smiley

    The GT2 RS is supposed to be the 911 halo car, nobody can expect it to look like a "plain Jane". Smiley

    Also, any comparison with Gemballa is ridiculous (look at the monstrosities Gemballa created).

    I thought EM means Entwicklung Motor? Smiley Or was it Eis Maschine? Hmm...can't remember. Smiley Smiley

    Anyway: You're right, the driver surely drove a few 911 before. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    As a matter of fact, the design of the GT2 RS reminds me of the design of one of the tuners like Gemballa.

    The front is very dull with basically only large rectangular openings and the black parts look like they are aftermarket.

    I think they could have done better. The 918 for example is also a halo car and it's one of the most beautiful designed car.

    It's simply not pretty. Now the GT3 RS is pretty indecision


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Those spoilers can be quite a liability.. I accidentally parked a bit like that in Italy and cam back to find the front of my car covered with ants! angry

    Smiley My car usually attracts those small little black flies. Whenever I park it somewhere near trees, the car is full of them. Smiley Never happens to any of my other cars, weird. Maybe they sense the heat from the engine? They are usually sitting around the rear part of the car (not on the glass cover of the engine bay though).

    I believe Lamborghini got it right with their Performante and LP750-4, while GT2/3 RS + F12 TDF have suffocated their limited models with design overkill Smiley

    The TDF is fine, no wing...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Some ugly cars in this thread LOL.

    Porsche refuses to design their cars for the performance they want, thus they're stuck making this embarrassing race car shit. Ferrari will create a competitive 488 and it won't even have a wing...

    Not a fan of the front bumper, everything else is fine. I was prepared to trade in my F12 for the TDF until I ran into the front end Smiley

    Sorry but I don't find the 918 to be a masterpiece of design. Proof is it is only OK in black or liquid metal because they hide the styling...

    At sticker? That's one way to leave hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table, I guess...

    Next time you have the chance and pass it up, let me know indecision


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    porsche is far behind in their design language, entrapped by the 911 legacy. they need to start from a clear slate with the 960.
