    Re: GTS Order Guide

     I would also get the 90 l fuel tank. I really don't like to  go  to the gas station. And around 450 km, are done so quickly with the 67 l tank , I feel I always have ti fill up.

    If there is no reduction of luggage space and it's FOC, why isn't the 90 l standard

    The only reason I can think of is for Official weight of the car not to appear higher in measurements where fuel capacity is taken into account.

    Re: GTS Order Guide

    The bigger fuel tank uses the space that is occupied by the front differential on the AWD models. Curious to know if there are any homologation reasons that made Porsche offer this option on the GT3. Obviously the GTS is the only additional car being offered with it.

    Does anyone know of any drawbacks?

    Actually only more weight when the fuel tank is full but I guess for track racing, fuel capacity could be reduced. Smiley

    Honestly, I get the feeling that Porsche wants to get rid of the 90 l fuel tanks but we shouldn't complaint. I find it pretty fascinating to have a 90 l fuel tank on a sports car. Smiley

    Well, buy a Ferrari. Smiley

    But then, 90 litre in a Ferrari won't last you as long as 67 litre in a Porsche. Smiley

    I know a color consulting company that provides services to the paint, dye and textile industries. Yellow is going out of fashion fast. Its been over cooked for almost a decade since Ferrari did a car show with all yellow cars instead of red cars to shock the press.
