    You need to spend some time in your winged manual GT3, it is all about the experience Smiley

    That's the one car I have not driven regularly.

    The GT3 is too perfect, I think the 911R was already too perfect compared to the Aston, the GT3 improved on that perfectness, not sure how but it did. I can't even put a foot wrong in it. There are turns that I got the 911R out of shape but the GT3 is planted through the same turns. 

    this is what I like about it, it drives well, it is planted, the engine is nice piece and sound inside the cabin is already loud enough. it doesn't carry the cachet of the R neither of any collectible grandma but it a very good car. just got it since 10 days and put 1300kms on it. it is good. Smiley give it another chance or two. this machine deserves it.

    AP said that Porsche has taken 70% of all the manufacturer mag wheels orders. The GT2RS has the priority and the GT3RS wouldn't be available until this December/January.

    Correct . Available only in Feb 19 and only if you have also specs the WP pack .

    All the ones before are taken by the Gt2 RS . Demand ended up much much higher then planed

    Is that the rumoured 911 GT2 R customer track-car? Smiley

    It looks different to the new 991.2 RSR that has been testing at Monza...

    ...turn up the volume! Smiley​​​​​​​


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Looks like a 'narrow' street body race car, not like the GT3R or the GT3RSR.

    Actually I think it looked similar to that mysterious race car we were discussing earlier.

    I totally agree. Porsche is ignoring a large part of their loyal customers over the years. I am not looking for a muscle car made to satisfy demand.

     

    Be that as it may, the demand for what they are producing from the GT division far outstrips supply.

    True but then they'd have to ask themselves why they don't produce more cars? Smiley

    what is the point to release more GT cars than basic 911s?

    they want to protect their flagship...

    it keeps the demand to the roof and bring customers inside showroom to request and finally purchase something else as the GT is ''exclusive'' all of this is marketing at its best.

    also, consider economy downturn and the demand will be back to normal i.e. around 2000 cars per iteration. Smiley

    If I were them, I would try to sell every single GT car I can produce, in all variations and flavors. I doubt this would hurt the brand, on the contrary. GT cars are better for the brand than SUVs and Estates.

    you know that SUV sell at more than 60% so GT car is peanut as a flagship is supposed to be.

    remember that we are not the typical Porsche customer... Macan and Cayenne junkies are..angry

    was yesterday at my dealer and they were not painting the picture very rosy in terms of future Cayenne , Panamera & Macan sales - they are to expensive by now.....

    Right, the majority of the sales may be SUV's but the key is that they wouldn't sell many Cayennes and Macans if it weren't for the image their sportcars gives them, so while the sportcars may be a minority of the sales, they are still their bread and butter in the big picture.

    I see green livery, I'm thinking along the likes of GT3-R Hybrid, as they've done before at N24.

    Not sure about that. I got a Macan because it was the best crossover at the time regardless of the badge... Truth is the trend is people caring less and less about sport car aura. They do care however about the « Porsche = luxury badge ».

    I did not ask but it looked real . One of the customers of my OPC is one of the biggest worldwide Porsche collector . I thought it was his as sometimes he displays a car there . I will check . He is the guy that put some of his cars for auction a few month back , if you remember my post

    Try and get the Chassis number - If it's 917-017 then it's real. (in other words the actual Le Mans film car).

    Seinfeld owned the 917-022 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    One more thing to add: If it is 917-017 it actually started off as 917-04 but was rebuilt after a crash at Brands Hatch in 1970 and renumbered as 017


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    It is 917-035

    @Gnil - Excellent! I m glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully you got to the islands.

    Now chassis 917-035: This is really confusing. 035 was used to rebuild 015 after a crash. This was a JW Automotive spare  and was renumbered as 015. 

    015 was originally a Long Tail.

    So now given the above  , I suspect that this is the spare car with a new chassis that was renumbered 035


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I need to make a correction of my original post  (I got the numbers mixed up) : 917-022 was the original Le Mans chassis and later owned by Sienfeld.

    My apologies for the confusion

    We rented a very nice villa right on the beach . A  staffed boat was at our disposal  . Went to have a pic nic on Paradise Island , snorkeling at 2 mile reef and tuna fishing on the other side of Benguerra .

    Will see if I manage to get some info about the chassis . But probably all the people there don't know more then what they see . Would need to talk to the owner .
