    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I predict the next GT3RS will indeed be NA. 

    I predict the next 911 based GT and GTRS will not be NA.

    I see:

    A new RS America with the 991 Carrera S engine (maybe very moderately tuned) with most of the GT suspension and brakes but more interior creature comforts.

    A Turbo based GT2 and a GT2RS taking the place of the current GT3 and GT3RS.

    Are these predictions based on any info/rumors or just your own prognostications?  Interesting in either case...

    My dealer (Belgium) still has one RS for sale, 80k over list price.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    If Porsche didn't want speculators, they should have just made as many as there were buyers. GT3 RS is way over-hyped anyway. I don't see the big deal about this car.

    Well I have heard rumours of an RS America as described by someone what would have good knowledge of future marketing plans. But I would think that was "talking about/investigating" not "doing".

    for track use, a big Yes.

    for street use, any other 911 variants are better.

    Agreed, however, there's also a limit to how many units Porsche can produce in a given time. With the numerous variants they currently have on the market I can understand that it's not an easy task to supply the demand and make everyone happy.

    with cars it is not only how fast they are on road and track but also how they make you feel when you drive them. i hope this is where the RS delivers.

    Your friend knows that a high quality wrap would have done the same job, without the cost of a complete repaint and without (some) loss in resale value because they original color is lost? Just saying... Smiley There are metallic wraps now which look pretty impressive.

     

    But it will never look this good:

    He could have try to do a PTS with Porsche, but it could very well be a losing battle and months of talk could turn up as a no from Porsche. 

    With such a complete and custom job, one could argue this 'one of one' GT3RS might worth more than any other run-of-the-mill PTS GT3RS from Porsche.

    you have to see the finished product. I think the center stripe will work nicely with the repainted silver wheels.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Wow, money for certain don't buy you taste angry. Both color and decals looks horrible in my view. But if the owner is happy that's all that counts.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I don´t see the point in choosing those decals and color either. Sorry, I initially thought the owner wants to match the color of his McLaren P1. Those decals, for me, are just wrong. If one wants to choose an original color, why not a proper Porsche color that would be difficult or impossible to order straight from the factory. 

    I find the diamond-cut finish on the rims very interesting but rather elegant and suitable for the less sporty models in the lineup.

    Anyway, not my car, not my money, so...

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    All that matters is that the owner loves it!!

    I personally think flat colors look better on GT models.  This color looks like something you'd expect to see on a McLaren.  The car needs silver calipers now.  


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    While I don't love the color either I still think they did a fantastic job making it their own. And I do like what was done to the wheels, she pics when it's all finished would be very appreciated.
