    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Not to be picky, but the GT2 in the above embedded video is the 7GT2.1 not the RS.

    still a great video though...

    I remember that video from a year or so ago.  That would have been a scoop!!

    I suspect that the UK's quota of that model just sold out.

    Very nice car... on all above real-life pictures, they use the small mirrors of the 997.1 model. The press pictures show the bigger 997.2 mirrors. What´s the story...?

    Point of detail on the new 997 GT2 RS from the Goodwood photos -- Porsche appear to have "upgraded" the front wheel-arch extension to a rolled fender compared to the bolt-on extension GT3 RS...

    ...the front wheel-arch extension looks better on the GT2 RS -- now Porsche just need to sort out that line into the front bumper!

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I assume the above car featues the CF body panels, hence the extensions being incorporated.

     I think the car in the picture features the optional carbon fenders. The regular version looks different (i.e. like in case of the GT3RS) Smiley


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    Great pics, thanks for sharing.

    I am amazed how the very subtle body differences, front splitter, wheel arches 1/2" wider wheels and 245 tyres, the apparently (I can't tell !) different rear gurney turn the Cd from 0.32 to 0.34....

    It looks like one side is big ( drivers) and the other one is small. I guess this way it repects the new regulations Smiley

    No video yet from Porsche in Goodwood about the GT2 RS...come on schnell schnell!


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    the weight of the AC is not that much but if you turn it on it is a much bigger hit on performance.

    I am sure someone can say exactly how much hp the aircon takes away but for practical acceleration purposes it really makes zero difference (in a 500+hp Porsche turbo)  in an acceleration test 0-300kph - I know, I have tried it a few times aircon on/aircon off.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

     Toby,

    I calculated the power use of a/c once for an average car, that was a 3kW compressor motor and it came out at about 4bhp (yes four). That is the maximum power use of course if the system was running at full capacity, i.e. you just turned it on having left the car to sit in 100 degree heat and bake. When running in a steady state to maintain a temperature, I'd doubt it uses more than 1-2bhp.

     Aircon tubes/pipes are also used to cool down the fuel. Thus, with aircon switched on you have a potential improvement of engine efficiency Smiley


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    I suppose somebody here knows whether the aircondition automatically switches off under full load?


    Re: 997 GT2 RS - Official Information & Photos

    It does on much lesser cars, i'd be surprised if it doesnt.
