     Porsche GT cars should have wings. It's what and who they are.kiss

    No, GT cars are performance (primarily track) cars.  If they find a way to perform as well or better without a wing (like via active under-body diffusers), then that is what they would do.

    I think active aero is overdue for GT cars.  Having that fixed rear wing at a high angle of incidence causes an enormous amount of unnecessary drag when going straight.

    For track driving, the rear wing on a GT3 does look the part... Smiley

    ...for road driving with a GT engine this looks just perfect IMO... Smiley

    if you want an understated car, just buy a Toyota or a Honda... angry

    nothing is understated in a 911 kiss and especially when multiple people will request PTS ''look at my bright color''

    wing or not, nothing is wrong, they are GT cars.

    Innovation from Manthey-Racing on show in Essen

    A very special highlight awaits the visitors to the Essen Motor Show. From 2nd to 10th December, Manthey-Racing will be presenting the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR at Stand A101 in Hall 3. The race car is based on the newest generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and can compete in endurance racing from next year onwards. The previous model provided the famous company with a class win at the Nürburgring 24-hour race. The team from Meuspath will also present the SRO homologation model GT4 Clubsport MR with a lightweight construction package developed for the upcoming season that includes components such as wings and bumpers made from carbon fibre.

    Manthey-Racing GmbH will introduce the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR at an 11am press conference during the Preview Day on 1st December. Employees from the motorsport company from Meuspath in Rheinland-Palatinate will then be on hand to answer questions for nine days during the 50th Essen Motor Show, the largest platform in Europe for sporting cars. In addition to the presentation of the new car, the company will also be showing ready-to-race products at the trade event. The “R-Equipment” includes upgrade kits for various cars, pit lane accessories right up to a drinks system for competitive racing.

    For club racing customers, Manthey-Racing will be showing the Porsche GT3 MR, which is based on the Porsche 991.2 GT3. The company is based at the Nürburgring and has optimised the MR derivate specially for use in tourist runs and track day events. At the stand for the Manthey-Racing technology partner KW Automotive (Hall 3, Stand B165), visitors can also take a look at another road model with MR-specific additions – the Porsche 911 GT3 RS MR caused a stir when setting a new lap record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and at the Hockenheimring during testing for “Sport Auto” magazine.

    Manthey-Racing GmbH is a company with more than one hundred employees. Manthey-Racing came to international attention thanks to its activities in the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring, the WEC sports car world championship and other racing events. The company has been responsible for running GT works competition for Porsche Motorsport since 2013. The company is also known for organising the VLN class Cayman GT4 Trophy by Manthey-Racing and for circuit-specific preparation of street-legal cars. The Porsche AG holds 51 percent of the shares in Manthey-Racing GmbH, which is run by the brothers Nicolas and Martin Raeder.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Today I've spent more than 4 hours at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur in Stuttgart which is currently a makeshift solution due to the construction of the factory for the Mission E. Nevertheless we had a great time and we were really taken care of, including a walk through the premises  with explanations how the Exclusive process works as well as having a 3 course menu. For me, all the stars aligned and my production slot has been matched with the PTS window which will make my Touring a rare beast. My exterior color can be guessed by the picture attached, I added some other nice bits and now the long waits begins, production is either February or March 2018. To say I'm a happy chap is an understatement, Im still buzzing from the experience. My advisor was also very passionate and knowledgeable, a real car nut. Though the whole PTS process can be cumbersome at times, IMHO it's really worth it.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Going to be a beautiful car, Mike!

    Today, I picked up my GT3 from the dealer 100km away and drove it home to my clear bra guy.  My first drive in it, despite sitting in it in Leipzig (that was a tease!).  Boy, it is not easy to keep these cars at low revs for brake-in purposes!  Car feels slow and so restrained by that limit!

    So glad I got the Manual - shifts really nicely.  The clutch is SO light - maybe too light.  Certainly would be no problem in a traffic jam (left leg would get almost no exercise).  Definitely lighter than GT4 clutch and only about 20% as heavy as 997 GT3 clutch.

    Without the wing it looks like any other 911. 

    That is the point Smiley

    What's the point? To look like a $80,000 car when you paid $150,000 for it?

    but some people don't care how expensive it "looks" but rather that it looks better to them and calls less attention, that's a plus to some people, in which I include myself. Gotta respect both sides, to each his own Smiley

    PCCB has a proper color name linked with former yellow color stopped on 996 I think: speed yellow 

    this is surely for sticke combination as you can select 3 colors on side ones. Smiley
