    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Looks like something to test airflow: look at the little vanes under the front of the car and the one directing the air to the side of the wheelarch. Also, the air flowing around a wheel is very "dirty" (flow-wise), so closing up the gap between the body and the wheels does make sense imo.

    EDIT: I only saw the first picture when I commented. Now I saw the others as well, and it looks like something more serious; flared fenders, different spoiler, different rear bumper... exciting developments!

    More power than the Carrera 4S, less than the Turbo... Is this the 991 Carrera GTS?

    Perhaps, P-marketing has sounded that there may be a market for N/A 911 with a turbo body...(yes, this post is meant to be sarcastic...)...


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    And after the 991 Carrera GTS we will see the 911 Turbo GTS as a anniversary model for 40 years of Porsche Turbo...

    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    For me it seems a GTS too but giving it a look ala 996 C4S which was a huge success.


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Could this be a hybrid or electrical version? Maybe the batteries take up more space and the car needs to be wider in the same manner that was reported for the 4-wheel steering and they have just re-used the turbo body for the mule.

    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Hi, just a strange idea but wouldn't it be cool if this was a kind of revival of the 911 ST.
    The different front an rear wheels, the flared wheels arches and also the 50th Anniversary style engine lid grill would fit a new version of the ST  ;-)

    But than again, these had the Fuchs wheels in front and the minilites at the back...

    Porsche 911 GT America – First New Car Built for 2014 United Sports Car Racing Series

    2014 Porsche 911 GT America
     
    Santa Ana, Calif. – 9 August 2013 – Porsche Motorsport North America, Inc. has announced that production in Stuttgart, Germany has commenced on the 2014 Porsche 911 GT America, a race car based on the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. The car is designed exclusively for the new United Sports Car Racing series GT Daytona class for 2014.
     
    The new car will be delivered starting in October, 2013 and be offered for sale to those teams committed to running the entire 2014 USCR season. 
     
    Jens Walther, president of Porsche Motorsport North America, is pleased that the factory has been able to move so quickly to create this endurance racecar – and build it to the upcoming 2014 USCR GT Daytona rules – so teams will have adequate time to attend all the winter test sessions in advance of the season debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
     
    “We are hopeful that our current American Le Mans Series GTC customers, along with our Rolex Grand-Am competitors and new teams, will want to take advantage of this early availability,” said Walther.
     
    The 911 GT America features a Porsche flat-six 4.0 liter racing engine which will produce 470 hp and utilizes a six-speed sequential gearbox with pneumatic paddle shift system and electronic throttle. The car is based on the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racer that currently exclusively runs in the Porsche Supercup series, and features lightweight bodywork with aluminum-steel composite construction, a fuel safety cell with new quick-fill connection, new color Cosworth dash display, and new safety equipment including a rescue opening in the roof allow use of the KED system for driver stabilization.
     
    A newly developed race braking system further improves the excellent endurance qualities compared to its successful predecessor. The 380 millimeter slotted and inner-vented steel brake rotors at the front axle are decelerated by six-piston aluminium fixed callipers. The rear axle features a four-piston version. 
     
    Retailing at $269,000 (FOB Weissach, plus shipping and parts package), the new Porsche 911 GT America is sold in North America exclusively by Porsche Motorsport North America, Inc., based in Santa Ana, California.

    Awesome! This is one of those moments when I could sing the national anthem ;)

    What engine is this 4.0 block? Mezger like the Cup or something new?


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Went to the dealer today to discuss possible 991 GT3 order, and he confirmed, that the 991 GT3 RS with the manual box will be launched at Frankfurt IAA devil

    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Wow, that's early! So the rs is going to be announced before the deliveries of the normal GT3 have started yet?

    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Can't imagine that they, like Joost said, are going to introduce the RS before the first GT3s are being delivered. I personally think it's at its earliest Autosalon Geneva, march 2014.

    And there will be absolutely NO manual! Smiley That would make the GT3 faster than the GT3 RS on a track... No way that Porsche going to allow that. Manual is history in those cars people... Face it. Smiley It's 2013, not 1983 anymore. For every "purist" that refuses to drive a PDK, there are 3 new costumers that wanna buy the car with a PDK. That is what important from Porsche's point of view. They don't care about what purists think. Would you if it was your company??

    Standing still is going backwards. That's not what you need to do as a company....

    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    How could a manual RS possibly outperform the PDK GT3?

    The RS should be in the 458 territory to make any sense and this makes the manual gearbox obsolete and redundant.

    In addition to the plate behind the rear brake disk, note the aluminum cap on the engine cover.  Is this a plug-in hybrid undergoing testing? It also looks as if there will be aerodynamics tweaks to lower its drag coefficient too.

    That's just a safety catch as commonly used to secure panels and hatches on racing cars.
