    Re: 997 GT3

    Some doubts about if it is the real GT3!
    This car has a sunroof
    No Gt3 has a sunroof.
    The exhaust pipe looks also wired. The license plate is a factory one, do you remember the first pics we have seen on rennteam about the 997? Those started also with LB:

    Re: 997 GT3

    Thanks a lot for the pics Ron!
    I like it!
    Although Carlito is right, ugly exhaust tips, I think the chrome pipes should be the proper solution, check the Porsche website tequipment page.
    As for the wing, looks nice in a GT3 kinda way, to me, it's a blend of the GT3 MK1 wing with the 993GT2 wing.
    Nice pics!

    And one thing porsche succeeded in again; they show us a lot, but they hide a lot more... confusion confusion

    Actually, a wing would be good cammo to test a new c4. Everybody is redirected to think c4s/GT3/TT etc., when in reality, they're just testing a c4!!!
    Look at the discussion it started here, I'm sure they're looking on and laughing.

    If they would test a C4, then I hope they wouldn't be so stupid to do it this way, I think you don't even notice the testmules for the C4...
    Because it would make sense that they would do it with the C2(S) body....logically

    I was thinking the exact same thing. If it were a C4 they could've just driven the car with no aerokit. But id this IS a GT3 mule, they may have added a few extra features such as the sunroof or seats just to throw people off. The aerodynamics have to stay on though, with a car such as the GT3. I have my doubts on whether a C4(S) narrowbody will even exist. Porsche stopped making them a while ago because the C4S just sold so much better. Any ideas?

    They kept making the 996 C4, but just didn't import to the US...

    Re: 997 GT3 - larger size

    Then a GT3 will be around the corner and you can cancel once more!

    And Porsche in the past has made models that were only for the US market.

    True, but we always end up getting the short end of the stick.

    US gets: RS America, America Roadster, etc.

    ROW gets: Carrera RS 2.7 and RSR 2.8, 964 RS, 993 RS3.8, 993 GT2, GT3 MkI, GT3RS, GT1, 959, etc...
