    Just added a set of decals/vinyls to my car: should be good for a drop in 0-60 times & a few miles-per-hour on the top speed.wink  

     

     

    Just need to add an RS badge now to gain better stability Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Hi Gnil,

    Yep, RS badge, plus engine + big wingy - thingy etc., but decals MUST be worth more than 20bhp, me thinks - & cheaper  indecision!

    Alternatively...  adding a SMFW + dimpled magnesium roof & bonnet would make an R!  Plus, additional & crucial, reduc

    tion in weight by deleting the  ‘S’ of RS; gotta be a saving of at least 20 grams there angel!

    Cheers


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    SMFW in the 991.2 GT3 is a big no-no !

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Robograd, that is a good combination of colours, classy, I love it!


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Thanks Cay981,

    Hands up!  I can’t claim any credit for the combination.  Agate Grey: my wife chose that, as after numerous previous Porsches, in all colours, over many years I’d run out of ideas!  I’d never thought of  grey but I should let her choose the colours more often, as the grey gets lots of positive comments: classy: understated: choice: stealthy, to name a few, & it’s fairly rare on a GT3T - maybe, only two in U.K.

    In addition, I took some advice from the now famous (to U.K. buyers at least) Rick, at Highgatehouse.  Top man, steered me away from my original choice of platinum stripes.  The Matt Black used is spot-on, as the effect changes from deep black in overcaste conditions to feint dark grey in direct sunlight.

    Nick,

    Is your car all satisfactorily fixed?  


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Yes. Why?

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Hadn't heard.  Is it still red?


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Yes it's still red but will be turning it in first week in August. Making room for the LG RS in September.

    Some pics from last weekend with my buddy's GTC Convertible. Driving through tunnels was big fun, the AMG looking like a Batmobile in the rear mirror and sounding like a Spitfire when lifting the throttle while the Touring scored big time on flat upshifts.eni5TVZITnuTBzQ9UxRHLQ.jpgP%8X6zSMRQaL+7n6kldTzQ.jpg

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Mike, what are your thoughts on the GT-C as a GT3 owner?  I'm curious, I love the merc looks and engine sounds and all my previous sports cars have been 911's including 2 GT3's.   How does it fare compared to your GT3, as I'm contemplating buying a sightly pre owned sports car again, and unfortunately GT3s from england are way beyond the budget to import to Cyprus, as not only are they priced high, but I'll have to pay a high excise tax to import to cyprus, due to emissions.  For example a 911 GT3 is about 40k worth of excise tax on it, compared to a 911 GTS which only has about 10k of excise tax.  The AMG would have about 20k of Excise.

    My understanding is the Porsche information and GPS system doesn't load Europe information on US cars.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    I believe that’s a ring map. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    It is a Ring map. I don't find it helpful at all, neither do he navigation map even if paying Porsche to load the European maps into the system. 

    There is simply no time to look down or sideways to check the map.

    Best for new people would be to hire a instructor and sit shotgun, he tells out even up coming corners and at what speed and where to aim and brake.

    That's how I did my first 2 laps at the Ring on Wednesday evening in a Cayman.

    passenger....

     

    Sounds crazy I know. These instructors are quite something. 

    But that's their job and Porsche had told them we are drivers from the Porsche Sport Cup Deutschland and like we have some basic car control skills............

    Amazingly he said I wasn't going fast enough! a few corners that are blind yet he said take them flat, I didn't.

    Mine said he has roughly 25000 laps, and compete in the 24hr also.

    It was extremely helpful, like rally driving, I had complete trust in him for remembering corners. It would be like "3rd gear flat middle of the road, aim for the 148 sign then brake lightly and turn right then aim for the light pole flat"

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    had the same experience with a driver from the Porsche race program - where the instructor tells you even the gear and breaking point - makes a huge difference than being "silent" next to you. broken heart

    btw : you are famous with them  - hahaha - just said I "know" somebody from Canada - didn't had to say more indecision

    A very nice portable navigation device with a big display is around 150 EUR in Germany. Often, these devices can be updated to US maps later on. This map looks so ridiculous...the shot of the month. Smiley Smiley

    I learned the ring after a handful of laps on the simulator. Never been there in person but I would not need that lap on my first lap. Lol. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    That map is clearly for a passenger / co-driver. Don’t see what the issue is or why people find it funny. Excellent idea.
