    I love that they are using individual throttle bodies - must sound epic!

    For those who like to drive on track, check out this video of Laurens Vanthoor’s pole position qualifying lap from last weekend’s Nurburgring 24 hour race in the Porsche 911 GT3 R with that motorsport 4.0 litre flat-six engine...

    "Piloting the number 911 Porsche 911 GT3 R, Manthey Racing driver Laurens Vanthoor set a new pole-winning lap record for the Nürburgring 24 Hours with a time of 8:09.105 – the first time it’s dipped under 8:10 during quali. And that’s not on the 12.9-mile circuit. For the endurance race, both the GP circuit and Nordschleife are stitched together to make a 15.99-mile mega circuit..."

    I haved the fucking chance to jump with my friend Kevin in the brand new 991 GT3 RS (the car used for the lap record, not the green one, the one who made 6.58min full lap) for a taxi lap on an empty track just absolutely crazy amazing He needed to remove the throttle on two parts of the track because too loud oem exhaust !!!! This lap with out the traffic, not the small rain at brunchen and with out the lifting throttle because db restriction is close to a 6.50min btg lap with a heavy passenger and a 100% street legal car include air condition system and GPS :-))) Tire michelin sport cup2 N2 new

    6:50 BTG...so around 7:15 full lap. Not bad kiss


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    It looks like he was in manual for the entire lap.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Interesting that on the R, the tire size stagger from front to rear is less than half an inch (10mm).  I imagine there is no understeer there...

    It's say the GT3 RS is no longer configurable as a new car.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I think one country's mentioned it was due to specification change (i.e. probably particulate filter stuff).  Maybe even a nice opportunity to jack up the price..

    On the Swiss one it has been about a month since there is a notice that says you can configure it but you can not order it .

    It will come again . Just like the Cayenne . Was at my dealer yesterday and he said no more order possible before February next year ( except for a few pre ordered cars with no configuration option possible ) due to factory close down for 5 month

    similar to mine, it is called special project. I heard that they want to increase their capacity with these super profitable car to about 100 a year. up to end of 2017, it was a 40 car year max...

    Never heard of it . So it is not just an exclusive optioned car , it is called '' special project '' ?   What is the real difference , what does it allow you to do which you can't with others ?   

    Last year one customer here also got his R with on one side the rims are one color and on the other side another color . Would that be '' special project '' ?

    Special Project is basically the opened door for never seen options before. Example, yellow roll cage...

    it is based on multiple conditions to get access to it. High level of options plus never seen options is a key factor. 

    2 sides painted is not necessary one.

    My Italian is a bit rusty but I understand from the pic uploaded by dinogb that the Italian configurator says that the model cannot be ordered anymore. However interestingly in Germany the language used in the configurator differentiates between models which cannot be ordered anymore and models which cannot be ordered "temporarily". The latter applies to GT3RS and 4GTS cars of the 911 line-up only (also to the 718 models). Factory closed for 5 months will cause a hick up in the P&L. Guess they have been caught by the new EU emission rules (note: originally these rules have been scheduled to come into effect from September 2019 only, but then - possibly in the context of the defeat device scandal - in October 2017 lawmakers decided to put them into effect from September 2018 already).

    Trump is considering imposing a 25% tariff on automobiles coming from the EU. Sport cars are not on the list but it wouldn’t be long before they are. I will cancel my RS order if the 25% tariff applies to it. Apparently all his negotiating tactics haven’t yielded any concessions from China, EU, Mexico, Canada and South America. 

    This could get ugly for the world economy.

    The funny thing is that it really does nothing to help America. Consumers are just going to pay the for the difference and they're still going to want the same stuff.

    Slapping tariffs on stuff isn't terribly effective if production can't be moved as well. The crazy thing is that it's aimed at places like the EU and Canada etc, as if those places heavily subsidize steel production or something.

    yes, you're right !

    when you open the car configurator for Italy you find : 

    The selected model is not available to be configured as a new car. However it is still visible in the Car Configurator. If you are interested in cars that are ready for delivery or in a recent used vehicle, please contact your nearest Porsche Center.

    if you open the car configurator for Germany appears :


    Due to an upcoming model revision, the selected model is not available for a short time as a freely configurable new car. Nevertheless, we would like to give you the opportunity to continue to look at the model in the Car Configurator. If you are interested in configurable new cars, available existing vehicles and young used vehicles please contact your Porsche

    Sounds to me like the period between RS without Particle Filter and before new version with Particle Filter...

    Makes sense plus it gives Porsche on the GT side of the business, experience with particulate filter technology before they develop the 992 based GT cars.

    https://www.focus.de/finanzen/news/unternehmen/ab-sofort-porsche-stellt-verkauf-von-neuwagen-in-europa-ein_id_9022951.html (sorry, German only).

    It basically says that Porsche has stopped selling new cars in Europe (already produced cars can be still bought though).
