    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    There is no GT2 RS limitation and while dealers make a big fuss about it, I actually think that anyone who can afford to pay over 300k EUR for one, will actually be able to get one, as unbelievable as this may sound. At least in most markets. Of course people need to stick around, even if dealers told them that they cannot get them a car. Wasn't much different with the 991.1 GT3 RS...suddenly more production slots were available and customers who sticked around were able to get one.

    That's my spec flying around the ring... well I've specced black door handles and mirror "wings" and removed the GT2RS badge from the back, but pretty much spot on! Can't wait until next year now indecision indecision indecision

    Let's wait till we see the slic... er, tires. 6:47 on road legal tires? That would be a heck of a time...

    You think the tires will be similar to the N1 on the .2 GT3 or further development?

    There was no indications that Porsche has a newer spec rubber. The N1 on the .2 GT3 should be the same compound spec as the GT2RS and the GT3RS.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Didn't Edo mentioned in a second post, that this time is only his guess?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    My suspicion is that it wasn't a guess and he is now trying to cover himself as Porsche have yet to make the official announcement.

    My reasoning: who guesses a time as accurate as 6:48.75

    They used a new "special" compound N2, unfortunately...
