    GT3 Production will be ending this summer......

    and it will not start up again for '05. This as per UK Press Release.

    Re: GT3 Production will be ending this summer......

    Say it isn't so I have a friend with a 2002 C4S that planned on getting a GT3 when his lease runs out next year.

    Re: GT3 Production will be ending this summer......

    The GT3 is well received in the US this time around so may be we'll see a return of the GT3 in 997 or at least the 998?

    How do you define well received? Porsche allocated 750 GT3s to North America. Given the delivery rate to date there will only be about 500 cars delivered. Only selling 66% of the cars allocated I wouldn't call well received and I'm not expecting future GT3 models to cross the pond. If they were I would have expected the GT3RS to do so.

    Re: GT3 Production will be ending this summer......

    Ok, but only 500 were delivered, but all were spoken for, weren't they? If they all were spoken for, then it was definetly well recieved.

    The RS wasn't brought over because they didn't want to have to homologate it for us because they could sell all they could make without exporting it over here.

    if i'm wrong, correct me.

    Steve - It didn't matter how many US buyer would've paid for the GT3RS - it couldn't be made US legal (the weight losses were achieved in ways that would cause US regulation failures). Heck, we didn't even get GT3 seats in the US GT3's for that reason...

    Look at a 360 Challenge Stradale, which is available in the US, and tell me why Porsche couldn't have gotten the GT3RS approved. In some countries I understand the CS/RS roll cage isn't installed when the car is delivered to the dealer but we didn't even get that option.

    Re: GT3 Production will be ending this summer......

    When asking about 997 Turbo availability my dealer did mention the 996 GT3 will be only a 1-year production run.

    The GT similarly so, but they may increase the production run of the GT up to 3 years depending on demand.

    Actually, many are not spoken for. There was a post recently regarding 9 GT3s on dealer lots in southern Calf. I see ads for them frequently...

    I was under the impression that these cars are somewhat heavily optioned, at least in context to what most potential GT3 drivers are looking for.

    What is code C02.

    US Standard/Emmissions?

    Yes, C02 is US emissions configuration.

    Re: GT3 Production will be ending this summer......

    Wake up and smell a modern Porsche. The US GT3 carries the same HP rating as the European version of the GT3 as they're both equipped with catalytic convertors. And the cars that have been dyno'd in the US are apparently making better than rated HP (about 5% more in several reports)
