    Food for conspiracy: The road (a blind alley) the GT3 is coming down in the pictures has two vehicle charging stations.

    (And, unfortunately, offices for some companies that provide winter testing services...)

    I heard that there will be a "ducktail spoiler" offered for the 992...  1550096185373image.gif

    You are correct, I do prefer the look of the ducktail spoiler on a 992...

    ...do you prefer this or a ducktail? Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Well, this looks pretty much like a ducktail to me. Or more like a duck beak?indecision

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I'm totally fine with a regular dynamic 992 spoiler...much over a ducktail. Somehow a ducktail spoiler always made me think, that it's some kind of unfinished design...like something is missingyes

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I do like the 992 aerokit , with a fixed wing and more aggressive front, but somehow it makes the 992 look more like 991 Mk3 GT3...


    --


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    The whole rear of the 922 is a mess, that wing is just the icing on the cake... the ducktail looks way better...


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I think the rear spoiler is the biggest design flaw of the 992, anything will look better...

    I don't see one "yet" surprise Would need to be a daily driver, and not for going to get coffee, I don't want to have drive anything that is not a sportscar so I mean a DD for high milage all year around, my GTS is going to hit 100,000km soon! Unfortunately I don't see a GT3 being practical for that, heart says yes!, but brain says no

    to be honest, I don't know what a GT3 can't do compared to GTS  except 4 pax...against way more fun GT3...

    @RC, the last NA...is not going to be the GT3, maybe the 992-3RS but not this GT3 992.

    "New 911 (992) GT3 caught testing" (Pistonheads)

    (21 February 2019)

    There aren't many cars that get a chat going on PistonHeads quite like a 911 GT3. Whether it's the trouble with getting hold of one, the secondhand market or - should anyone dare - how utterly fabulous they are to drive, the conversation is never brief.

    With engine fires, an automatic-only phase and the reappearance of a Touring model, the 991 provided plenty to talk about. Still kinda does, in fact, with the Speedster on the way. But that's all made to seem like yesterday's news with the emergence of these new 992 spy shots. Photographed testing in the Arctic Circle just this week, the next GT3 is expected as a 2020 model - which makes sense when you think about it, as the 991 GT3 arrived in 2013, or two years after the base Carrera.

    With that arrival not all that far off in the grand scheme of things, there are a few clearly recognisable GT3 traits in this development mule. Note the twin central exhaust pipes, rear arches seemingly wider even than the already broad Carrera, a dramatic fixed rear spoiler and vented bonnet. The yellow calipers on this car would imply ceramic brakes, although the discs look like iron - those of greater knowledge, feel free to contribute now.

    Given a hybrid 992 is not expected until at least the mid-life facelift, it would a surprise verging on shock to discover any petrol-electric tech on the GT3. As so much was invested in the 4.0-litre flat-six for the 991 facelift, it would seem logical for that engine to continue here. Furthermore, with the uptake of both the manual gearbox and Touring package higher than expected, we'd bet on those appearing in the GT3 range again. Given the 9,000rpm 991 first made its debut at Geneva in 2013, we'd bet on a debut in the same place next year. Plenty more to follow before then...

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    For daily driving, and some spirited back road driving, can someone define the advantages of a GT3 touring versus GTS?

    I still like the 9k redline (and its NA sound and throttle response) better than the 3.0TT on the road.  6spd Manual and steering are better too.  But if never driving on track, a GT car with Cup tires may not be the best match for everyone...

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I know we talk a lot about how much the 911 has grown and how bloated and fat it has become, etc, but on this pic next to the E Coupe and the LR it look small. Sure those aren't small cars either but all other cars are growing and comparatively the 911 is still small enough to retain that convenient every day sports car title. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    A few days, I saw a late 1970s Toyota Corolla on the road and it was diminutive compared to the current vehicles.  While  compact when it was new, it is now toylike.

    I only have to look at my Turbo 3.6 next to the Turbo S Exclusive to see how much the 991 has grown since. And the 992 is bigger still.

    It’s like the fat girl next to the skinny one. Park a 992 next to an SUV for best results. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Looks good in black with all the plastic bumper parts matching... all black 911 creates the optical illusion of a lower ride height! Smiley
