    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Carlos from Spain:
    noone1:

    You guys, it has to have rear seats. Now people who paid out the ass for a crappier version (911R) can rationalize by saying, "Ah, but the R doesn't have rear seats, hence the $400K premium."

    The R will be the only manual GT3 without a rear wing or rear seats. Manual GT3s without wings and with seats are for mere commoners.

    Except, you can easily remove the rear seats if you want to, simple to do for any touring option owners that would want it. But not the other way around, you can't add them if it doesn't come with them, like in the 991R.

    But we all know that collectors don't care about logic. All that matter is that your $10M Ferrari has the original rusted out chassis and barely visible serial VIN, and some historical document detailing the official options. The fact that the rest of your was create in 2015 doesn't matter! Everything else is irrelevant!

    Full rear seats!

    Did you see ISOFIX mounts too? smiley

    Bardman:

    Hi Lars - are you 100% sure it had the rear seats?  If yes, then my dream car is confirmed!  wink

    (btw - those Touring details were from my post on rennlist)

    100%  - as I clearly looked into that detail. I was checking for the cage, as that one wasn't there I was checking how the rear seat looks and could see some seats. I tried to make pictures but I was too stupid doing it Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    AND - it was PDK. I could hear the up and down shifts. That was for sure not a manual car.

    That's an interesting detail as rumours have indicated that it's going to be manual only.

    100% - he left the Autobahn at the exit and had downshifts which been so fast and so many pops - it only could have been a PDK.

    You mean rumours that started on RL? Smiley

    Those guys just hoping for a 911R that's why.

    So does that mean that PDK will also be available w/ the Touring Package??  Or will I be killed if someone tells me? Smiley

    If Porsche made MT and PDK available on the 'genuine' GT3, why wouldn't they do the same for the tour version?yes

    Just as Nick said. there is no reason for Porsche to restrict the transmission choices. They would sell more with the PDK

    Well of course you both make complete sense, but sensible seems to be an elusive commodity in our times.

    Is it possible that some of these mules are for Sport Classic, rather than GT3 Touring?  What will be the difference?

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    flip down the rear seat back and then no rear seats.

    if given an option, and if it is not a track car, I will take the one with rear seats any day.

    Nonsense - was just passing along what I was told.  Given Lars has seen one with a PDK, it does make you wonder why this false information gets given to me and others.  I guess we wait until September to really know what this car will be.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    On Rennteam, everyone is a car guy talking cars, quite a few are quite connected and information here is almost never wrong. 

    But well we do have one who is a Debbie Downer

    On Rennlist, most guys just want a car they can drive for a few years without losing money, and they all the same car but doesn't want any others to have it. And if someone else has the car they want and they can't get it, they will find a way to trash it until it's 'worthless'. They will invent rumours and whatnots to try and be a internet hero.
