    it was the totally unlimited edition:::)))


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Though this time they are really bound to stop production due to the 6b engine, which the GT3 has, since after the 1st of September it needs to be 6c.

    maybe a (minor) mod is enough to comply?


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    They can continue selling it in ROW after Sept 1 2018, so production won't necessarily have to stop.

    And no, based on what I heard, it would require more than a minor mod and the Porsche board has yet not approved the fairly substantial investment...


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    What do you mean by ROW, please?

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    i think the same is going to happen with the GT2RS. they will not do 7000 pieces but as many as they have orders - i guess around 3000. i am doing the test: i called my PZ on friday and said that i want the GT2RS after all. the answer was, ok but we have to back-rank you from (my original) number 2 on the order list to number 8, with only 2 confirmed allocations. i bet in about six months time i shall get the call, like with the GT3RS ' a miracle happened, your GT2RS was confirmed by PAG'. that will be a lot of fun:::))))

    well, they are cashing in big time on the bygone history of exclusivity and scarcity of GT models, looks as if they finally discovered that preuninger's model are a great cash cow. well done PAG/VW!!!! took a while though:::)))


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I still believe there is a limited production possibility for the GT models - hence the numbers will be kept at 3-4k Units per model - but I agree that they are highly profitable as they don't have to give usual Discounts. I am in Weissach next Monday - let's see what we can "see"

    No, nothing Smiley

    The track was  at Issoire , next to Clermont-Ferrand . It is a small but technical track . It was rented by our local Lamborghini club and I was invited to join in . The whole idea was to let our kids or wives drive our cars . 

    The first hour of the morning and afternoon was reserved to the regular drivers , and then the following two hours of the morning and afternoon were open to anyone . Kids had to drive with the blinkers on . That s it . Of they went, with the daddies sitting next to them to coach  Smiley 

    We were a small group of about 20 cars all together . About 5 kids aged 10 to 16 .   The 10 year old drove his father's 430 Scud Smiley    It was fantastic and exceptional . I never saw this on a track . Thanks to the president of the Lambo club, he insisted that we could do this .

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    That seems amazing! I never heard of something like this. How did your son like it? Was he all buzzing afterward, or didn't he realize how special this was?

    And your wife? No big fights at home because you let your son do 200? smiley

    Must have been a cool day, and can imagine it was pretty special for you as a dad as well... I guess there is no escaping for your boys, they are bound to become car persons as well kiss

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    991.1 GT3 RS: There is a service action regarding the coolant reservoir. It is a problem with the sensor.

    This is not a 991.1 RS specific issue but I'm not sure exactly which cars are affected.

    Quite amazing indeed. Smiley

    My son was able to drive for the first time in his life in a...Jeep Wrangler...serious Off-Road edition Smiley recently.

    The guide's friend who was with us was the local Sheriff Smiley and when my wife asked..."of course, sure...the boy should drive a car..." and my son drove around (with me on the passenger seat of course) in the desert. Smiley Smiley He couldn't do much harm there, so no damage done.
