    Think I'm with SciFrog here.. whilst I'm not looking for a GT3 cabrio, I like cabrios and miss that aspect. You have to admit a 911 cab with a GT3 motor would be a glorious thing...

    Manufacturers like McLaren have done so well with torsional stiffness of their tubs that even their cabs have superb rigidity. I get the impression Porsche are a bit behind the game in this aspect.

    mclaren has a carbon tub and ferrari aluminum. the 911 is - if i understand correctly still on steel technology mainly.

    A 911 Cab with a GT3 engine is one thing, specially now that it's the only NA engine left, but a "GT3 cab" is quite another though

    911 is a mixture of metals and alloys, but there's nothing stopping them using composites; BMW do on cheaper cars for instance.

    I must admit the need for a full GT3 equivalent with no roof seems a bit niche. My point was that the motor is intoxicating  and would only be more fun in an open-top car.

    There will probably be a Speedster and it might have RS engine, but don't think rear seats...

    Minus the wing, the wheels and the decals I would guess it is going to look 99% like the Cup. I am not expecting any big surprises. A gentle evolution of the 991.1 GT3 with a new front facia, rear lights from the 991.2 Carrera and new wheel designs. Voila!

    You can order them from Performance Friction - I once inquired and the price was pretty scary.  Could save some of the money back with 18" tires though...

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Actually we posted pics of almost no-camo 991.2 GT3 in late November 2016 and apart from front spoiler it do not look any similar to Cup car posted above. Wheels will be the same as on 991.1 GT3. I have all details but can not post them yet...

    Really? Those are nice wheels, but not updating the design is very unusual.

    991.1 GT3 strangely appeared again on the configurator... Maybe the are preparing something for Tuesday? Also, look at the strange price...

    $149k is about $10k more than I was hoping and expecting...

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Grant, the post is a fake. The picture is of a .1GT3.

    I still believe the .2 will be priced around $140,000.

    Nick,

    Are you absolutely sure that this price is wrong? It seems to me like unusual leak on official Porsche NA configurator.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Not only the pic is a .1 but all the technical details too. Unless the .2 is getting a 3.8l with 475hp and only PDK for 10k more than the old one angryindecision

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Kreso, I can't speak to the price but I do believe the configurator is a fake. My estimate of the .2 price is based on history rather than knowledge. Porsche typically increases pricing on second generation model around 7% unless the new model has features substantially different from the preceding model. Every I read points to incremental changes to the .2 from the .1.yes
