    Where is the GT3 Mk 2 produced???

    Zuffenhausen or Weissach???
    Was Porsche Motorsport involved in the tuning/design of the motor??? Thanks

    Has to be Zuffenhausen. Weissach isn't big enough for the volume produced.

    If you visit the factory at Zuffenhausen you'll see all the 911 models go down the same production line, including the GT3.

    The specific features of the GT3 were developed by the Motorsport department at Weissach.

    fritz: Are the Cup cars being produced in Zuffenhausen now? I'd understood due to the volume of Cup cars being produced only the RSRs were being assembled in Weissach now.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I meant to say that all the street-legal 911's go down the same line.
    But, in fact, I understand that even the Cup cars are built on the production line up to a point, since they are close enough to the spec of the road cars to make them compatible with series-production methods.

    The GT3 RSR racing car is too far "left field" to go down the same line, so it would need to be hand-built, which is reflected in a much higher ex-works price than for the Cup. I don't think it's a question of volume so much as complexity.

    Thanks for the info Fritz!!!

    Re: Where is the GT3 Mk 2 produced???

    When I collected my car in October I asked the factory tour guide about this. He said that no car is built in Weissach and that the Cup and the RSR are built in Zuffenhausen. I saw two Cup cars on the assembly line in Zuffenhausen during the giuded tour.

    Best regards,
    Ulf Karlsson
