    Get well soon, your Touring needs exercise! 


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    Thanks gents for all these encouraging words...wink

    Last week was not easy - the surgery went through the throat to the neck...Frankenstein-style...frown

    Today I left the hospital and returned to my family - a big step forward.

    And reading about the small Rennteam-Meeting at the Nürburgring makes everything easier, too.

    In 2 weeks I am allowed to drive again...slowly...and  T -85 days till my return to the track...kiss

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    Sounds and looks painfully.  Very speedy recovery so you can be speedy on the track.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    T -56 days till my return to the track...smiley

    At least I can drive my cars myself since two weeks...kiss

    Today the OEM-battery of my Touring was changed with a lightweight battery at our local Lotus-dealership.

    Total weight of the OEM-package: 21.2 Kg vs. 2.7 Kg of the Lite Blox package.

    So a Real weight saving of 18.5 Kg...a little bit more than base Weissach-package of Porsche, which costs almost 18.000€.blush

    The test run over 50 km showed no problems - I will report my longterm experience..

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    That is indeed a huge difference . Looking forward to your long time report . Do you need to have it plugged in when not driving more then a few days ? I can leave my stock one unplugged for 3 month with no problems .

    What is the price ?

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    I’m also interested in a long term review. How many times can it crank the engine before it’s flat (in cold days).

    According to the producer you can leave the battery conected with the car for some weeks with no problems.

    I will report my own experience.

    The price in Germany for the 991.2 GT3 version  with carbon adapter plate is about 1.500EUR.

    Here cou can get some more detailed infos: https://en.liteblox.de/knowledge-lithium-car-battery/?noredirect=en-GB

    You can shut off the battery with your phone via Bluetooth, if you don´t use the car for a longer period.

    PLEASE NOTE: I am not connected to this company in any way - this is just a first hand user-info from me!!!!

    Please take it slow, the slower, the better with this kind of stuff. I bet your doctors already told you.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    First big trip after my surgery - 2.000 Km in 4 days on alpine roads in Italy, Austria and Switzerland.

    BTW - The LiteBlox battery works flawless, even with 3 weeks breakes with a connected battery.

    The trip was great fun with the Touring...everything is faster and more brutal in comparison with  my former Carrera T. 

    Autobahn-driving in the rain with the Michelin Cups is a little bit scary...smiley

    Next week we will be at Hockenheim for a trackday with the Pistenclub.

    Great to see you back in form . Lovely photos , specially the one form our alpine roads ! 

    In a scale of 1 to 10 being the best  , how would you rate the T and the Touring in the '' driving pleasure '' department  and in the '' practicality on public roads '' ?

    If I have to rate my last 3 cars for driving pleasure on practicality on public ALPINE roads, this would be my ranking:

    1. 981 Spyder (+open car is great on alpine Roads, -needs a little more power, too long gearing) 8.5 Points

    2. 991.2 Carrera T (+right size auf car, Michelin4s, fuel consumption, torque, -needs better engine sound and more revs)8 Points

    3. 991.2 GT3 Touring (+Power, engine/9.000rpm, racecar-feeling,  -wide car, fuel consumption, ground clearance, Cups in the rain)7.9 Points

    The GT3 is my dream car and it was no mistake to buy it - next week at Hockenheim it will outperfom dramatically both of the former cars.

    But for my alpine tours, the other cars are more suited - the GT3 is a little bit overkill. I wrote it last year after our Spain/France tour - you can  keep up with a GT3RS in a Carrera T on small curvy roads and you have almost the same driving pleasure for 70K€ less.

    So a GT3 and a Carrera T is nonsense for me, therefore I will add to my garage again a used 981 Spyder for open top fun.
