    Question reinforced cage mounting points on EU GT3 cars

    Does anyone know if a Porsche 991.2 GT3 without the club sport option does have the reinforced mounting points anyway ? 

    I know all the US GT3 cars do not have them . Could it be that  EU non club sport also are like the US cars , or not ?

    As far as I know the non-CS cars do not have them.

    If so, does it make sense installing one anyway or not ?

    I guess you can easily have one welded in if you're looking for the additional rigidity/safety?

    Caution: Not sure how this works in other EU countries but in Germany, this could be a reason to loose the general certification for the car. Huge insurance issues. I know, this sounds stupid but it is how it is. Smiley

    Dealer checked it out . Found out that all the cars that have not the Club Sport from factory do not have the reinforced mounts on the body of the car ........

    It was ok and you could retrofit the CS on .1 but not anymore on .2 Smiley, not selected from factory = dodgy drilling required to put it afterwards.

    That's correct. The Club Sport package cars has the body from Porsche's race cars, Cup car, GT3R, RSR.

    Technically still the same body in white, but with reinforced cage mounting points.
