    What Color Red is this ? I know it is not Guards Red or Ruby Red.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    looks more like GTS red but its guards red


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I've had the detail through for the UK car, the weight saving measures are awesome, they have really gone to town:

    New plastic expansion intake manifold saves 3kg

    Single mass flywheel saves 8kg

    Carbon bonnet saves 2.5kg

    polcarbonate rear windows save 4kg

    aluminium diagonal braces rear axle save 1.4kg

    new dual spring arrangement front axle saves 3kg

    brake hubs on the rear axle made of Aluminium (GT2 just the front) overall saving against all stainless is 4.8kg (so the RS does not save all this weight compared to GT2 but not specified the exact saving)

    Unspecified weight saving:

    Wheels

    deletion of cup holders and special RS logo carbon panel in place

    removal of sound proofing in the rear.

    Listed for the UK as "Limited offering with the following main additions"

    we have:

    Lightweight front wings made from carbon (Painted body colour)

    Lithweight battery (lithium-ion)

    Lightweight headlights (halogen headlights optional at no cost)

    Tail lights in clear glass look

    The detail is intoxicating Smiley

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Taken directly from the german car configurator :

    Li-ion battery : -10kgs

    Carbon wings : -4,5 kgs

    Lightweight headlights : -6 kgs

    I don't think the tail lights in clear glass look permits to save any weight.


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    The optional carbon front wings save 4.5kg but come in at an extra 5600Euro - I wonder if the 1370kg car is equipped with these (and the non xenon headlights) Smiley

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I heard that xenon headlights actually weigh the same as normal ones,only they come with bigger washing fluid tank required by law and thats where the weight difference comes from


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    From the UK dealer information pack - limited "cost" options ?

    Lightweight front wings... are these the parts that are next to the front bonnet, or is this the front spoiler lip?

     The Xenon lights are also required by law to have self-leveling motorized system - that must weigh something too...

    hahaha cupholder and A/C a no extra cost deletion cost. Oh Porsche this is great. What a world they have created. I'd order with all no extra cost options and delete myself. It will aid the resale

    The RS is stated as having "Static engine mountings with sporty RS tuning"

    Why has it not got the new fancy adaptive fluidy mountings like the GT3RS Smiley

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Thanks guys for the explanation of the word "wings". I suspected that much.

    Interesting that you can specify these body parts in CFRP now. Will be interesting to see when the first cars turn up with only clear laquer.

    Toby,
    I re-read the press release that Christian posted, and it says that the dynamic engine mounts are there...

    They need to be as  hard as possible all the time, I would assume, given the far superior output.

    I don't know who would actually delete air condition. Radio, maybe, but if you delete the air con, you are buying the wrong car.

    If you're going to strip out every creature comfort and use it just as a track car, why would you not just by a legitimate Porsche race car?

    Agreed, buy a cup car...

    RC:

    ... Appropriate longitudinal and crosswise dynamics are ensured by the sporting RS set-up of the springs, PASM Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management, anti-roll bars, as well as the dynamic engine mounts and PSM Porsche Stability Management...


    As read from the press release. Seems like there is a discepancy here...

     You'd have to trailer a Cup car to the track, whereas you can drive there in a GT2/GT3 RS.

    Most people serious about track trail their cars anyway... Where do you put the tires and other equipment?


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I barely ever us aircon, never use it when driving hard, so I would probably select aircon delete.

    I'm pretty serious about tracking and I don't trailer my car (drive it with DOT Track tires and bring a tool kit in the car).  It takes lots of room to park a trailer and tow vehicle at the house (I live in the city).

    A comparison of the numbers of street-legal GT2s and GT3s against the number of GT3 Cup cars built says it all, even allowing for the fact that all of the street-legit cars will not see the track regularly.
