    I saw the Black Convertible mule with GT3 wheels in a town called Wildbad today, cruising at low speed. That place is not exotic, just hills west of Weissach / Zuffenhausen.

    992 GT3? Careful. They are working hard to make it happen but as far as I know, this isn't final. 

    There will be a n/a engine in GT models in 2019...991.2.

    the GT3 - 992 series is a 2020 product.

    next year, they will go with speedster and the 3RS.

    I talked to Walliser two months ago in Long Beach and he indicated that the 992 GT3 would be NA.

    I fly to Le Mans tonight and hope to bend his ear again this weekend about the same topic.

    That makes sense as the RSR will remain NA and the GT3 is the homologation car.

    My thinking exactly; he is also a major proponent of NA for the race cars (Cup, GT4, GT3 R, RSR)

    remember that GT2RS is there, and GT2RS clubsport is on his way soon...Smiley

    uncertainty is there but the past few weeks at factory were very disturbing and as RC mentioned, a lot can change in the next 18 months.

    If the RSR wins Le Mans. That means the NA engine stays. Their strategy of going NA to make the car lighter more agile pays off. Finally. After all the BoP sandbagging by others.

    The GT2 ClubSport will be a toy, nothing more.

    I know for now it is just a toy but ... a 4.0L twin-turbo is an orphelin within the 911 range and that is a bit ''strange'' Smiley

    the RSR victory will comfort or change the strategy. I am happy to stay NA for ever.Smiley

    There is a lot going on at VW Group (incl. Porsche) right now, so whatever someone said yesterday, it could already be obsolete a day later. 

    Porsche will do whatever it takes to keep the n/a engines in the GT models alive but at a certain point, it won't be possible anymore, at least not at the power and sound levels customers expect and levels keeping the cars competitive with the competition. Hybridization will be an issue as well since it makes the cars heavier.

    Interesting times ahead... 

    Lighter materials? Dream on. EU laws demand strict crash and pedestrians protections, making the cars lighter would involve much higher cost. I doubt it is going to happen.

    Official photos should pop up in autumn this year...

    Unfortunately there may be a delay as to when the cars will be available at dealerships. Heard of early 2019 instead of end of 2018. A couple of months ago, the rumored release date was late autumn. Smiley

    Yes, the auto gear lever will change it's design.

    I'm hearing late spring/early summer in the US for 992. Perhaps only one model to start. 2020 looks to be the year we will see most of the 992 models in the US.
