    That's a shocker, they never mentioned a hotter tire to us before.

    Perhaps the P spell / kool-aid hasn't worn off yet Smiley

    You'll get over it once you find out the truth with Porsche and their chief engineers that take orders from the guys in suit.

    Smiley

     

    Nah, I wil stil blast them when they do something wrong.

    Talking about which.

    My Exclusive Turbo S is going into production in January. They still haven't let me spec it properly. Smiley

    There are no online configurators, only the dealer has the configurator on their internal system and it is also incomplete, They did send me a couple brochures with options but some of the options are not in the configurator.

    Standard equipments wasn't mentioned anywhere and I have been trying really hard to confirm what is standard and what I need to spec, trim and option wise. No firm answers for a month even when communicating directly with Germany.

    Exclusive, the department that actually CREATED the car can't answer me either, on the trim or what CXX I can do with the car.

    This is actually stressing me out right now. I don't want to have the car arrive then found out there are spots here and there that can be spec-ed to match the rest of the interior but which they didn't let me know I can.

    Hell, no one can confirm whether homelink buttons are standard or not. They have the option but it's not selectable in the configurator Smiley

    At times Porsche's car configurator is a mess, a major mess.

     

    just fly to Germany, sit and configure.

    That 2RS looks bad even in red, not much hope for this car except black to hid everything...

    Is that Guards Red? If so, I think GR looks terrific on the 2RS.

    That's no surprise at all. The GT2RS had to be quicker.

    But I think the result of the Performante with 60 hp / 150 Nm less an 80 kg more is great as well, second quickest car tested by SportAuto so far and quicker than a 918 Spyder. kiss

    Smiley I would take the Performante over the GT2 RS anytime but I guess I am biased. Smiley Smiley

    To be serious: This is 2017: Stuff like this should be not be a problem. Maybe it is a backlash from marketing forcing a too early reveal of both the GT2RS and the Turbo - just guessing.

    no doubt about performante over GT2RS.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    About the used tires in sport auto:

    "The tyre used is similar in construction, compund and griplevel to the CUP 2 ZP used for the Z06 and GT-R. But the tyre is its own specification" and "the grip nivaeu from the Pirelli Trofeo R isnt as high as the Michelin CUP 2 ZP N*"

    they state also that the tyre needs heat to work and that cold and wet grip are even worse then Trofeo Rs.

    Stopping distance cold 100-0: Lambo 39,8m Porsche 46,6m

    Now im in the same boat as RC normally is that this tyre is not suitable for the street and shouldnt be used.

    Pretty sure it's a communication break down between production, marketing and Exclusive. There is no communication.

    Last time this happens was when I spec my 918. 

    For my other 'normal car' orders, there was no problems.

    Makes sense. Now we just need someone to stick these tires on previous models. I bet they make the old cars quicker than the new ones.

    So far this is the only picture where the GT2RS looks really good. In other colors the car suffers a lot from all the cheap plastic. I love this black exterior Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Funny they don't put the white shipping condom around it this time like they did for the GT3RS, what is the criteria to make such kind of protective cover?

    GT2RS has so much exposed carbon fiber that any damage will most likely means replacement.

    ^ Looks better to me. I saw the wheels at Goodwood and they are more Bronze than Gold. I liked them a lot.
    (If they've been more goldish I guess I'd not prefer them.)

    I guess Satin would look good too...

    Smiley Great answer Nick.

    Actually - I think this GT2 RS rear looks hot like a sky rocket. Especially in black it is stunning as all those additional parts are not that off as on the silver one. Great decision to go for the black one! Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    any dark color will look stunning on this car.devil

    but this plain black or even Jet Black Metallic with a stealth film will be a true batmobile

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Maybe even the black would not be able to hide the presense that the gt2rs has on the road and how special it is. Now that you have a blue one, a yellow is just one step away from Ruby Star.
