    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Thanks! Do you know what the price of the basic 991GT3RS in Britain was? I am trying to gauge what the US price will be for the .2.

    Do we have an updated view of when the press embargo is lifted ? Tomorrow, Wednesday ?

    Might be tempted to trade my faithful 997.2 3 in for this. Had an LoI in for 3 years for this car and passed up on the 991.1 RS as it was flappy paddle, but i might just get down with the kids now and join the PDK fold!


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Dear Gentlemenskis,

    Please post more pix of this car; Sky is with Nick n Christian, may get one. 

    Thanks!


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Read on the EVO description that the front hood will be carbon with WP. Does that mean that the base RS will lose the carbon hood it has now or is it just miss printing from the magazine ? 

    They also mention light weight “ plastic “ for the wheel arches and bumper. On .1 the wheel arches are carbon . 

    Basicslly making a cheaper car mor expensive or what ?

    Hot off the press:

     

    A clear focus on motorsport: the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    Stuttgart. The Porsche motorsport department is presenting Weissach’s latest treat at the Geneva Motor Show: the 911 GT3 RS with motorsport chassis and 383-kW (520-hp), four-litre, high-speed naturally aspirated engine. The new high-performance sports car is based on the 911 GT3, which has been refined still further to combine the performance-enhanced engine with a running-gear setup that features re-calibrated rear axle steering designed for maximum dynamics and precision. The 911 GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 312 km/h. Following the launch of the 911 GT3 and the 911 GT2 RS, this latest release will see Porsche present its third GT road-approved sports car within a year.

    Aerodynamics and interior based on the race trim
    Aerodynamics have determined the design of the wide, weight-optimised body with its classic rigid rear wing. The racing look continues into the interior with full bucket seats made of carbon to provide secure lateral support in response to high-level driving dynamics. Lightweight door panels with storage nets and opening loops, reduced sound absorption and the new lightweight rear lid further emphasise the consistency of the material choices.

    The most powerful naturally aspirated engine at 520 hp
    The four-litre, six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from Porsche in the new 911 GT3 RS pushes the sports car to new limits: The flat engine delivers 15 kW (20 hp) more than the engine in the previous model and the 911 GT3. Together with a speed range reaching up to 9,000 rpm, it was the ideal choice as a thoroughbred sports engine. Combined with the specially calibrated seven-speed PDK, the high-performance engine guarantees an outstanding driving performance.

    Motorsport-inspired chassis and Clubsport package
    Technology straight from motorsport ensures that the chassis offers exceptional driving dynamics. Ball joints on all arms provide even greater precision than conventional elastokinematic bearings. 20-inch lightweight wheels with newly developed 265/35 sports tyres on the front axle enhance agility and steering behaviour, while 21 inch wheels with 325/30 tyres at the rear axle improve traction.

    As with all current GT sports cars, the Clubsport package is also available for the 911 GT3 RS at no extra cost. The package includes a roll-over bar, a manual fire extinguisher, preparation for a battery disconnect switch and a six-point belt for a sporty driving experience.

    Weissach package and magnesium wheels for additional weight savings
    For particularly ambitious drivers, the Porsche motorsport department has created an optional Weissach package for a further weight reduction. The package features additional carbon components for the chassis, interior and exterior, as well as optional magnesium wheels. In its lightest configuration, this package reduces the weight of the 911 GT3 RS down to 1,430 kilogrammes.

    Market launch and prices
    The new 911 GT3 RS is available to order now. It will be launched in Germany from mid-April 2018. Prices for the new high-performance sports car start at 195,137 euro, including VAT and country-specific equipment.

    I advised my dealer I want one. His first allocations are April and May with delivery in the fall. Not sure I will get one of the first as I did with the GT3. yes If I do, I will spec it exactly like the introduction model.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    The invitation to buy one was sent out today to the 918 owners. 

    According to the owners group, perhaps 50-50 will take this car, unlike the 100% take rate on the GT2RS.

    Some are happy with their .1 and the .2 doesn't offer that much over the .1. 

    Some are getting car drunk with like 5-7 new Porsches within the last 12 months.

    Others are waiting for something else, the GT3RS isn't special enough fro them anymore.

    Some more are pissed at Porsche for screwing up PTS on their GT2RS. Well that's not Porsche's fault. More like it's a certain someone on Rennlist that decoded the system and hence everyone and their mother are ordering PTS and clogging up the system, overloading Porsche's ability to produce.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I fail to see that being the fault of the-person-who’s-name-must-not-be-mentioned-but-we-all-know but all Porsche’s issue for not meeting the demand of their customers.

    It is not like everyone and their mother reads Rennlist so if that is Porsche’s excuse then it is pretty lame.

    Just my opinion indecision

    Great looking car, performance is also great.

    I was seriously thinking about getting one but if I do, I cannot keep the R8. Smiley

    So the plan has changed: I will be getting the R8 facelift (if available) instead. Makes more sense for me

    I really like the new 991.2 GT3 RS though, amazing car.
