    Not a joke, but a work of fictiion Im sure!

    Good work though, if you look through the full gallery the author has gone to a fair amount of effort.

    It shouldn't be called GT3 then. Smiley

    I find it more of a sacrilege not to use the GT3 engine for other models and I am deeply disappointed that Porsche didn't use the GT3 engine, in a detuned version with lets say only 450 hp, for the current GTS.

    Even we all would like to see GT parts and GT engines in other cars, Porsche never did that in the past and I understand it.
    Porsche has to protect the myth around GT cars. Not only to sell them in future for high prices, also to keep the "GT brand" high and not delute that.

    So I am pretty sure we will never see a detuned GT3 engine in a GTS or similar.

    I rather think it is a cost factor. If Porsche would think it costs the same or be even cheaper, they would use the GT3 tech in other models as well. Actually, wait for the 991.2 and you'll see... Smiley

    Of course Ferrari knows how to milk their customers, but I find the combination of highest engine evolution and the sensation of an open top Ferrari as in case of Spider 16M or Speciale A rather tempting.

    My former GT3 which I sold back to the dealer with 1900km blew its engine After the 2. lap in Dijon in April. I was adhering strictly to the running in instructions. It's no coincidence that the RS engine has a higher grade crankshaft.

     Did your crankshaft snap?  I've had that happen at the track with an air-cooled 911 and it is not pleasant.

    If I may ask, how did it pan out? Did Porsche give you a replacement engine? All covered by warranty?

    Car was already sold to Porsche and not driven by me when it happened so it didnt effect me at all. I would have gone berserk if it happened to me as also my former Frog had its problems, especially the drive train was its weak spot.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    Ok, got an excellent offer yesterday from my PZ. They will got 2 991 GT3 afte industrial holidays in Germany. Cars are build and I got VIN for both and all details.

    Now, specs are almost the same with one huge difference-one car is with P07 Adaptive seats and other is with P03 Folding buckets and Cage. 

    Which one to choose? Is cage really limiting package area on the back that much? Which one will have better resale value in 4 years or so? My plan is to keep this car for at least 3 year period.

    Opinion from 991 GT3 owners is welcome. Thanks.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    My logic would be that the guys looking for such a car in the future is going to use it for track driving or at least as a toy. I would not be looking for the "comfort" version at all.
