    I presume no news on your car.

    Does insurance pay market price or sale price and what are you going to replace it with?

    No sign of car. Insurance want to pay sales price. (What p*sses me off is that they don't want to pay for the PPF.)

    The 2RS was an extremely frustrating experience, drove it 7 times before it went somewhere else.
    What was supposed to be a a fun and interesting journey turned out to be a nightmare.
    When I think of GT2RS's all I can relate to is of course to this sad story - Not sure I'd want one anymore even if I could have one. 

    Other car: I have been using my 997 GT3 a lot and it is such a fun car to drive. I haven't sold my 991.1 GT3RS so I'll probably keep the 991.1 until 992 GT3 RS comes around.

     

     

    So sorry about this whole nightmare... Smiley Smiley

    Terrible story but hopefully it will be the only one in a lifetime of enjoying Ferdinand's finest.

    Just came back form two days at Paul Ricard . There was a guy with a 991.1 GT3 RS that had a 991.2 GT3 RS on order . I had dinner with him and he was wondering if changing was just money burning and that he probably should cancel his order . I played the .2 down , saying it is just a little bit better in all areas and then offered that he drives mine for a few laps the next day . He came out of the car with a huge smile and saying there is a wold of difference and no way is he canceling his order Smiley

    kiss - I suspect a good part of that is down to the Manthey setup..

    Got to see my first GT2RS, quite a beast in person.  Sadly this one won't be driven if the GT3RS he traded in is any indication.  Less than 150 miles on that car...shame.

    One of my favorite color combinations: blue with red interior which is a variation of the old French racing colors.

    We were yesterday at Lake Ammer (Germany) and had a grey GT2 RS with us. Street presence of this car is just amazing, We parked (incl. another three or four 991) in a parking lot and when we returned, people were surrounding only two cars, the RS and my R8. indecision Also had a 2017 or 2018 Maserati GT in the group, what a crappy car, cannot even keep up with the 991.2 Carrera GTS. enlightened I also learned that around 14°C outside temperature aren't really suitable for semi-slicks, I/we was/were driving more sideways than straight.  surprise  Time for winter tires I guess. yes This morning we had -2°C. Smiley

    I already changed to winter tires last week. Worst case is temperature as mentioned in your post + a bit of rain... Shocking moments secured Smiley

    There are parts involved on top of the alignment setups. But nothing has been done to the engine to increase the power. Only a bigger water tank was installed.

    I was pretty much at Manthey all summer spending time with this car (not driving it but seeing it getting worked on and stuff).

    As much as I love Porsche and Manthey, I only considered the 6:40.33 as a modified street car category, not a showroom street car record.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    According to sebastian vittel the modifications are:

    -new manthey aero kit (diffusor, wing, aero canard front)
    -kw suspension spezial
    -michelin Cup 2 R

     

    I agree with you. This is a great lap time but its a modified car.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Actually they had two cars there: One red and one yellow. The yellow one drove later to the Porsche garage. The red one I didn't see close up - maybe it went to Manthey (opposite direction).

    I was driven around the Meuspath surroundings this summer in the red with the MR suspension sounding like an old bed. Knirr knirr knirr, but wow, that car was really planted to the roadkiss Great fun!smileywink


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Both GT3 RS and GT2 RS had Cup R when they did the lap time. (I believe it was Sport Auto who confirmed about GT2 RS tires)

    This is hardly a modified car. Some suspension and aero mods are effective for sure but not a substantial makeover.

    All cars attempting to beat the record time must have some deviations from showroom specification, I presume.

    Many Manthey enhancements are available to customers.

    Porsche AG own a majority share in Manthey-Racing, so this is like an in-house improvement. It would be a good idea for Porsche to offer a limited number of "GT2 RS Evo"  incorporating the Manthey parts especially now that they don't have many cars to sell.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Depends on what you do, but alignment, wing fix, braided brake lines and change of suspension about 10-15 Keuro. Don’t know about diffusers and other potential changes.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Not bad if they make a €300.000 special car even more perfect.

    So basically after Lamborghini did a 6:44, and McLaren did a 6:43 with the P1 LM, Walliser said "hold my beer" made a call to their MR team and without touching the engine pulled a 6:40
