     I'd much prefer it without any of that red graphics package.  I think it looks like a cartoon.

    Yeah , but it gives the Vette guys ammo for firing back at us when we make fun of all their   Indy Pace Car special edition paint/decal  schemes  over the years such as this 1998 one, which , unfortunately, I see a lot of in this newest GT3RS. Besides, even w/o the decals, this latest 911 with it's " look grandpa I'm a race car " wing looks like a cartoon compared to a straight laced  daily commuter Turbo  , so might as well go all the way for this weekend canyon carver  .

     


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS breaks cover

    Surely Porsche could have done a lot better than stick-on wheel arch plastic bits and some "got 'em on eBay" stickers.  It seems like the best bet now (for a hot rod late model 911 track car) is to get a 997.1 GT3, buy the .2 RS suspension bits and if you're feeling rich, get a 3.9 450 horse (to the ground) p's and c's upgrade kit.  Warranty be damned.  At least in the US, Porsche seems bent on denying warranty issues (witness RMS and their attempts to blame the driver for either driving too much or driving too little or changing a muffler!)  "Dear Mr RS buyer, please be advised that we demand you drive no less than 600 miles per month or your warranty will be subject to arbitrary denial."

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS breaks cover

    LOL, that is the first time they managed to go over the top with the RS livery. It was already on the edge with the 996 and the 997.1 rs, but at least those cars looked awesome! This just is wrong... and they also took the wrong color combo, the red/grey looks rediculous.

     I dislike the tapering , w/o tapering and red parts the car is wonderful . full white or riviera blue. the rsr rear wing is amazing!

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS breaks cover

    It's a sad state of affairs when Porsche has to compare it's newest creation with a decade old Chebby ... even if someone found purple and yellow to be cool in the 90's, well, at least you have to concede that 'Vette really was a pace car ... what's the excuse for the new RS looking like it had the paint applied with Homer Simpson's make-up shotgun.

    I'm sure that all these decals are removable or even that the car can be ordered without them.

    Anyway the GT3 RS is a homologation special not a road car and owners will circulate on the track not in the city centre.

    Official Press Release: 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS...

    - Press Release - 

    Porsche Readies Most Dynamic 911 to Date; 2010 911 GT3 RS

    19 August 2009

    Porsche rolls out the definitive track ready, street legal 911

    ATLANTA -- Delivering even more engine power, lower weight and shorter transmission ratios, as well as upgraded body and suspension components than all previous GT3s, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS sets the foundation for homologating the race version of the 911 GT3 and will be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show September 17-27, 2009.

    The heart of the new, uncompromising GT3 RS is the power unit. Like the engine featured in the 911 GT3, the naturally-aspirated RS power unit now displaces 3.8 liters and delivers even more power, while revving up even faster to its 8500 rpm redline. It now delivers 450 horsepower, 15 more horsepower than its 911 GT3 counterpart. Even with a specific output of more than 118 hp per liter from the six-cylinder boxer engine, the power unit in the new GT3 RS remains fully suitable for everyday use.

    The new 911 GT3 RS comes exclusively with a six-speed manual gearbox optimized for short gearshift travel, low weight and high efficiency. To enhance the level of performance throughout the entire range of engine and road speed, the transmission comes with shorter ratios than found in the 911 GT3, deliberately conceding an even higher potential top track speed.

    Dynamic engine mounts are standard and serve to improve the car's handling to an even higher level. Depending on driving conditions, the mounts change in their stiffness and damping effect, improving the connection between the engine and the body when driving under very lively conditions, yet allow for more comfortable conditions during everyday street use.

    Porsche is also introducing another new option in 2010 for the GT3 RS, a lithium-ion battery. Delivered with the car and, when replacing the conventional lead-acid battery, it reduces the weight by more than 10 kg or 22 lb and is mainly intended for the track.

    To further improve its sporting behavior, the new 911 GT3 RS comes with a purpose-built and specially set up PASM suspension, a wider front and rear track and corresponding bodywork.

    The front axle comes with nine-inch-wide wheels running on 245/35 ZR 19 sports tires while the rear axle features twelve-inch-wide wheels incorporating 325/30 ZR 19 sports tires.

    The new 911 GT3 RS shows its close connection to motorsport through its dynamic looks, in particular by its low ride height, the new, extra large carbon-fiber rear wing and titanium exhaust system.

    The 2010 911 GT3 RS goes on sale in the U.S. in early spring of 2010 and will be priced at $132,800.

    Porsche AG

    Press Release: 19 August 2009

    New Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    The Most Sporting Road-Going 911

    Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is sending the new 911 GT3 RS to the starting line: Delivering even more engine power, offering lower weight, and featuring shorter transmission ratios as well as body and suspension elements upgraded to an even higher standard, the new 911 GT3 RS sets the foundation for homologating the racing version of the 911 GT3 and therefore offers everything it takes for ongoing success on the race track, continuing the series of absolutely uncompromising, sporting 911s homologated for the road.

    The heart of the new GT3 RS, the power unit, is based on the engine already featured in the 911 GT3. Like the latter, the RS power unit now displaces 3.8 instead of 3.6 litres, delivering even more power and revving up even faster and more dynamically.

    The engine featured in the new 911 GT3 RS delivers 15 bhp more than its counterpart in the 911 GT3, that is maximum output of 450 horsepower from the fast- revving naturally-aspirated power unit. This means specific output of more than 118 bhp per litre from the six-cylinder, an extremely high figure for natural-aspiration technology even in the strictest worldwide comparison. And unlike many other high- performance engines, the power unit in the new GT3 RS remains fully suitable for everyday use.

    The new 911 GT3 RS comes exclusively with a six-speed manual gearbox optimised for short gearshift travel, low weight and high efficiency. To enhance the level of performance throughout the entire range of engine and road speed, the gears come with a shorter transmission ratio than on the 911 GT3, deliberately making concessions in terms of even higher top speed.

    To further improve its sporting behaviour, the new 911 GT3 RS comes for the first time with a purpose-built and specially set up PASM suspension, with wider track not only at the rear, but also on the front axle. Accordingly, the body of the new 911 GT3 RS is wider not only at the rear, but also at the front through the use of additional wheel arch covers.

    The front axle comes with nine-inch-wide wheels running on 245/35 ZR 19 sports tyres, the rear axle features twelve-inch-wide wheels incorporating 325/30 ZR 19 sports tyres.

    The dynamic engine mounts featured as standard also serve to improve the car’s driving dynamics to an even higher level. Depending on driving conditions, the mounts change in their stiffness and damping effect, improving the connection between the engine and the body when driving under very dynamic conditions.

    As yet a further point the car’s aerodynamics develop even more downforce than on the GT3, again benefiting the qualities of the car on the race track. Racing qualities are also why Porsche is introducing another new option in 2010, a lithium-ion battery delivered with the car and, replacing the conventional lead battery, reducing weight by more than 10 kg or 22 lb.

    The new 911 GT3 RS shows its close connection to motorsport also through the dynamic looks of the car borne out in particular by its low ride height, the new, extra- large carbon-fibre rear wing with its specifically designed wing supports made of aluminium, the characteristic dual tailpipes on the extra-light titanium sports exhaust, as well as special front and rear parts exclusive to this model.

    Sales of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS are starting in Germany in January 2010. The Euro base-price is Euro 122,400.- without value-added tax and national specifications. The market launch date and retail price vary by region or country.
