    "Another limited R model" - would this be the 911 Sport Classic hinted at here:  https://www.total911.com/exclusive-porsche-991-sport-classic-and-speedster-in-the-pipeline/


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    This is the same joke as previously - just limited numbers does not make it Special whatsoever - maybe speedster because of it's shape - but Sport classic I never understood - and still my neighbor has sold his 997 - 70k over what he paid....


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    Does that mean is going to be made then, and if so, any idea of specification for the "joke"? :) 


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    Let me guess - 450HP engine, bubble Roof for the classic, fuchs wheels , R Retro seats & fabrics , full leather Options , a few limited Stickers and approx 100k over a well specced Mk2 - happy ? blush


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    Never happy :) Always happy :) LOL


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    in all seriousness - I never "got" the sportclassic eventhough the Sound was deeply impressive at that time - maybe the speedster with a different windshield and back would tick some "Special" boxes that justify a massiv mark up but the rest is like Porsche choosing the Options for you with a Twist, however, of course it will be sold immediately no doubt


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    hope I can get a speedster, in blue...

    Some new rumours from RL. Kreso and others-how much of it is true and how much impossible?

     

    Originally Posted by TRAKCAR View Post

    Picture CUP front with big canards on the front, active aero bladder from the TTS, a little Gurney on the front bumper right in front of the front radiator outlet.
    Same front fenders as the 991.1RS but reworked to fit 275/285.

    Rear:
    Big, semi active rear wing a hybrid wing between the current RS wing that moves like the TTS /918 wing, huge defuser between to cannon-like exhausts.
    No manual.
    Updated RWS. 
    Updated electric steering rack.
    Updated PDKS gearing and programming. So no longer only granny mode and bat**** mode but sport, sport +, extreme and Race and Race Custom. 
    Same button with more settings as on the current C2S steering wheel.
    Race custom allows you to adjust ABS, e-Diff, SC threshold and 3 settings for downforce.
    SC can only be fully deactived with full downforce engaging over 60MPH.

    Power
    Bigger scoops for the air intakes a la GT4 plus fixed scoops worked into duck tail underneath the active rear wing. 700HP 640lb for 15 seconds on overboost.

    Tires:
    Next spec MPSC2, 285 / 345.

    Colors:
    CUP White and German flag colors as Mr Porsche intended are free. 
    All colors available in PTS from beginning to end of production run.

    Brakes:
    This time no std PCCB as already proven the 991 steel brake system is plenty strong and durable enough but a little more front brake cooling is added and a proper Movit based CCB system is optional. CF Carbon Revolution and Magnesium BBS wheels optional. Part of two track packages a la Weisach edition of the 918.

    Clubsport package now available in the US but must be dealer installed with the CS package interior options reduced to current RS option list. 
    CS in a box + dealer install is an expensive option but it comes with a Barber track day to explain all the track setup of the systems.

    Non-CS cars get sofas dont get the track packages option but all options available on the TTS are available. There will be a valet setting.

    Base price $225K, CS package is 20k (Free ROW again) and can be optioned to well over $350K ...

    No bull**** limited number plaque on the dash, same production numbers as the 991.1RS, the GT2RS is a direct replacement. No more NA RS.

    Will remain in production along the TTS until 991 production seizes.
    This will be the last steel tub, flat6, non hybrid RS.

    Next 992RS will be similar with the 918 driveline mated to a flat8 in a CF tub

    Remember what Trakcar wrote is what he calls "Positive visualization".


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    640ftlbs/870NM is too much I think, firstly Porsche like smallish incremental increases and crucially 870NM, real engine dyno steady state 870NM not rolling road torque is much more than Porsche would give a rear wheel drive 911, even with 345s....IMO

    my vienna dealership yesterday confirmed my GT2RS allocation (nr. 2 on the list) and they told me that they might get 3-4 cars. this seems to me an indication that the GT2RS will not be limited in numbers, rather in time but there will apparently be generous supply.

    they will be taking GT3 orders after geneva with deliveries in late summer (if all goes well according to them).


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    interesting - our dealer Claims he didn't even got the GT3 quota

    yes interesting. so far however my dealership has never given me any (verifiable) BS:::)))


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    I think they are just afraid you move to the Red side again indecision


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    My dealer ask for a 5.000 USD deposit to all clients that have interest for the GT2RS.
    Said that will send the info to factory and later factory will inform to the dealer of how  many units would get and how it would be the process selection.

    ::::)))) they should be afraid of this but i am sure they could not care less:::))


    Re: 991 GT2 RS (2017) - Rumors, speculations and gossip Thread Closed

    Being on your dealer's list is one thing, getting actual allocation slot is another. So far the dealers don't have any official info on the GT2 RS let alone allocation. They have no idea how many cars they are going to get. 

    I am pretty sure that the GT2 RS will be a very limited car. Unfortunately there will be a lot of speculation with the quota. Some dealers will invest in their clients by letting them buy the car at list price, other will make an easy buck by selling their allocation over price list to speculators. And with 918 clients front-running the queue chances are getting even lower...
