    Brilliant M3ike, that new Cup looks so agressive. I'd love myself a road registered one!

    Watt, strong rumors are

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    495 will be disappointing .... but unfortunetaly in line with Porsche startegy of + 20 PS for MkII.

    Hope the low end torque difference is significant at the end .....

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Torque will be significantly better than 3.8, but can't be much better than 4.0 in R and RS...

    The car is fast enough at 475 hp but Sun hopes for lotsa additional torque as well

    and resulting improvement canyon slamming and on route 6 on the South Island - 150 miles of 1st-2nd-3rd gears up n down. It  was way fun in the 2015 Gt3 , and Sun is looking for more fun by Feb of 2018👍👍

    If Sun wants much more torque, then I think a model with a "2" in the name instead of a "3" will fit the bill Smiley

    Or maybe a new GTS...

    Get Sun the new Cayenne Turbo S (should be available 2018). He (and you) won't be disappointed. Smiley Smiley

    Haha,

    you must be kidding! What task that Sun has would that accomplish -  unless he added a new one of breaking down on the station tracks?  It sure would be a f.k drag on the 6, compared to GT3.

    The GT3 with more torque will accomplish the task - will it still weigh close to 3000#???


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    And Dean,

    GT2 RS with 2wd and all that T on wet roads..... squeeeeeeeeeeeze on the throttle, did it with prior GT2's and don't fancy it againno.  The T increase to 4.0 should suffice, combined with the close box.  Running in the rain about 60% of the time in NZ, and 85% on the 6 which runs up the SI West Coast that gets 5-9 metres rain a year.....

    Probably at least 3,250 in real world (66 pounds less with Manual, I think)

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Ok, question for the group / slight dilemma / advice needed. 

    A good buddy of mine can swing a press pass ticket for the 8th at Geneva to go to the GT3 launch. I have some real meetings in Frankfurt on the 8th, do I stay faithful to work/professional topics or do I reschedule to do Geneva?

    Ohhh - that was difficult. A fun business meeting in Frankfurt or a boring car show in Geneva on the press day?

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I am hoping to get an allocation this summer and ordering a PTS. However, there is a rumor that PTS will not be available until the Spring of 2018. If true, I will forego the PTS. 

    Anyone have any information on this?

    I'm hearing the same thing from dealer....No PTS till spring of 2018. Will be placing a  PTS order for my GT3.

    Has anyone actually noticed that Q7 there? indecision

    Yes, this is the final car (GT3). It is a pity we don't have a front shot but I think we already know how it is going to look from the front.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Is there any camouflage on the rear? I don't recognize the black  center under the wing

    FWIW, US dealers get allocations starting September for PDK and one month later for manual.

    It looks like the air vent has been incorporated into the wing. I think that is what Nick is referring to.

    Don't think the notch in the rear lower valence looks particularly appealing, nor the black cover over the air intake.

    They did a good job covering that up, I was under the impression it was the cab!

    Yeah, I was puzzled too, thought it was a Volvo first.
