    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo S Exclusive Series (2017)

    Tonight Dr Porsche had a private birthday party at the Museum. A lot of famous Porsche drivers were there. 

    Tomorrow morning we will drive to the Museum and park all the cars in front at the plaza while we do tour of the Museum's secret stash. And a factory tour too. 

    After that we will drive to Weissach to see the good stuff. indecision

     

    But today after the delivery I had a tour of the factory already, but had to wait at the door until a certain time as there was a special car that was on the line and we had to wait till it is out of sight before entering. No, I don't know what that is as I can't quite see it. 

    On the line, every other car is a GT car. And I am not joking, it's is literally packed with them. A 718 then comes a GT2RS, then another 718 and a GT3 Touring, couple more 718 then another Touring and a GT2RS, a Targa then a GT3RS, Since they do 260 cars a day, them must be making 120+ GT cars a day right now. All European specs

     

     

    @Kimi, and sorry I haven't paid much attention to the weave yet. But I will have a look in the morning. I am just in love with the bespoke interior Exclusive created right now.

    During my factory collection 2 weeks before, we have seen 3 golden Exclusive painted body shells in the storage shelf over the production line waiting for assembly. May be one of them was your car...

    The „special“ car on the line ist the pre-production of the 992. In every shift they train the staff with one 992 and search for problems...during this time no visitors are allowed in the factory.

    I also met Mr. Porsche today at the shareholdersmeeting at Stuttgart in the morning near the factory.Smiley

    Nick, I understand Porsche is no longer taking orders for the 991 911's except for GT cars and GTS.

    Nick that is correct, the Targas on the line are all GTSs.Actually Targas are the only 911s I see on the line apart from the GT cars.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo S Exclusive Series (2017)

    I guess that's a good sign for people still hoping to get a GT car of some sort unless they are just way behind on production vs orders. 100 GT cars per day would fill those orders pretty quickly I think. Probably just comes down to end of production rather than just wanting to limit supply. I mean at some point they gotta start spinning up for the 992 and end 991 all together.

    992 apparently won't be available until early next year, so I guess they have enough time (and capacity) to build some more GT models along the way...

    What a striking Porsche!  At first, one was skeptical of the Turbo SE but the results are stunning.  

    BlueFlame:  If Porsche is starting "pony" production runs for the 992, when is the factory producing the rumored Speedster variant of the 991.2?

    Smiley

    The car should be in Goodwood in a few weeks, but I have no clue when the normal production starts.

    I just can say that I have seen a flipchart at the end of the production line with handwritten notes „Probleme beim 992“ - first we were not allowed to enter the production area during the factory tour...but close to the end we got permission and I saw the flipchart.

    Our tour guide was more then embarassed about the mistake of the line-workers and shouted at them...

    As mentioned before, they are producing a lot of GT-cars at the moment - we have seen tons  of them - at least every second car during factory collection was a GT car.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo S Exclusive Series (2017)

    Now that I have had the car for over 1 day, I can see why only idiots thinks this car is over priced.

    here is the detailed interior pics.

    Every single leather piece standard on the Exclusive is an option on the regular Turbo S.

    Add on the aero kit, then the PTS paint. Then the carbon fibre details. Then the carbon roof and hood. Also add the painted exterior plastics and the carbon mirrors.

    Finished that, try to do a bespoke interior via Exclusive. 

    When done, add the power kit.

    Oh almost forgot, the bespoke wheels.

    The Exclusive Turbo S comes out ahead of the regular Turbo S.

    And that's not even counting the limited number. 500 in the world.

    Nothing Porsche made in the modern era was produced less.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 Turbo S Exclusive Series (2017)

    There is so much they showed us in Weissach, I could write a book for the afternoon tour.

    Mission E vs Tesla Model S. Think Mercedes S class vs a Corolla. Model S is done. Period.

    Their special non-road legal car that was on Youtube, I already placed an order direct with them. 

    The other non road legal car, it will be very competitive with whatever AMG and McLaren is doing, They also standardized stuff with the Cup car so it will be a even easier race are to maintain.

    The unobtainable, I ma so gonna sell one of my existing Porsche for it.

    The other cars that was rumoured, it is what it is been rumour at.

    The car that's above the rumoured cars, well they are still deciding, but judging from their reactions, it is going into production, they still need to figure out how to do the induction system though. Right now it is like a Frankenstein, with GT parts stolen from other lines.

    humm, which one is this ? 

    The other cars that was rumoured, it is what it is been rumour at.

    This is the speedster or maybe the GT4 with NA ( ??? ) engine ???

    The car that's above the rumoured cars, well they are still deciding, but judging from their reactions, it is going into production, they still need to figure out how to do the induction system though. Right now it is like a Frankenstein, with GT parts stolen from other lines.

     

    And then this would be the GT4 RS ????
