    Re: Sportscars: comparing them...

    ah! you beat me to it!

     

     


    Re: Sportscars: comparing them...

    The funny thing is that will then have to use the normal GT3 as the homologation car, and judging from current rumours it will have a 3.8L engine.

    I look foward to seeing what really comes out of all this.


    Re: Sportscars: comparing them...

    they can bore it out to 4l  I don't thonk bore size (cylinder diametar) is fixed, I rember the 430 was destroked, or debored to 4l from the original 4.3...Also If I remember corecty there was no 4.0L 911 when the 997RSR had a 4.0L engine...the Gt3 RS 4.0 came two years later IIRC

    Fascinating thread :) Like Spyderidol, I too lament Porsche's fall from dominance  ...

     The consequence of Wiedeking's management and vision of the company. It was good for profits (Cayenne, Panamera) but terrible on Motorsport.

    Times have thankfully changed now, the 997 is still in the game actually and the 991 will be even better. And of course the P1 and maybe mid engined racer.

    The future is bright!

    To be fair, besides the numerous 911 wins and titles in various competitions, the RS Spyder was a huge success for Porsche in motorsport. Especially in 2007 when it won overall double the number of races compared to the LMP1 Audi.

    However, compared to the illustrious past the above doesn't satisfy us fans. Porsche must achieve a series of overall  LM wins to restore order.

    The RS Spyder was an amazing car, a showcase of what Weissach was able to achieve for privateers! An P2 car that was able to beat P1s. Simply amazing!
