    That top picture doesn’t look correct compared to the look that Chris Harris had with AP (front vents are body color, except for a very small part at the leading edge...

    I prefer the vents from the Chris Harris video, but looking pretty good none the lesskiss

    The bonnet is wrong. The lines on the GT3 bonnet are closer together (which I don’t like) than on the regular 992 or the CUP even.

    My feeling too in terms of visuals, but in all other aspects Porsche will have moved the game on as usual.


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    The GT3 up to now resembled the Carrera with Aerokit. Only Porsche enthusiasts could distinguish between the two looks-wise. The RS versions have been much more individual.

    From what we see above the 992 GT3 follows a unique style much removed from the Carrera models. This differentiation is a very good thing and together with the bespoke front double wishbones will make the new GT3 an even more desirable sportscar.

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    We don’t need the looks , we need disks that don’t crack after a few track days ! 

    One of the main upgrade people do when tracking their GT’s are the break pads and the disks. 
    No problem with pads. You can use many different ones. But with the disks, no. 
    Only the original ones are allowed by Porsche. The problem is that they are far from the best when using the car on tracks. They get cracks and when these cracks go from one hole to the other, they are done. Good cool down lap helps but is not enough. 
    The other disks, with the grooves, don’t crack and  last about 2 times longer. 
    Many people use them but they are not “approved” even if they are actually used as standard on the Cup cars.

    Well, looking at the presentation with Chris Harris, the brakes are still drilled rotors...it is indeed the weak point of this car as you cook the rotors so quickly unless you keep repeating cooling laps after 2 or 3 laps...annoying.

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    I recall the articles last month mentioned them being dimpled not fully drilled. if this is the case they will last longer like the slotted rotors. I would imagine we are only talking about the new front rotor however as the rear I think will just be the same 991.1/2 GT3 rotor. Luckily they already last around twice as long as the fronts....

    Porsche are at last adopting this type of brake disks (rotors). They emulate the current benchmark in  sports driving, the Yaris GR.

    Well, looking at what Harris presented, they look exactly like the 991.2 version. Difference is the caliper is positioned a bit lower on the front.

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    I wonder why did they then have mules with non perforated disks ? 
    Fed up of having to change them after some days at the Ring ? angry

    Any good reason to not keep them for the new car ?

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    The new front iron rotors are 408mm - that is big (2mm smaller than current PCCB) - particularly if dimpled instead of drilled, they will last a good deal longer.  Should last longer even if not dimpled (since there is so much more metal for heat sinking).

    Will be heavy though. Wonder why they went up in size.. no- one was really complaining about fade with the 380mm.

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    Hi Dave. AP said in the interview approx same weight. I believe they have used a lighter bell. Agreed dint need more stopping power though with the larger tyre patch, wider track and new front geometry Im sure it wont go amiss. best result will be rotor longevity from larger thermal mass as Grant said...

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    Yeah would be nice if they moved away from drilled discs for longevity reasons. Having said that they seem to live a bit longer than in the GT3, maybe the extra cooling in the .2 RS is helping.

    The brake bias would be off with 991.  The larger diameter gives more brake torque, so the bias would be shifted to the front axle too much (unless you use larger rear rotors also).
