    997TT RS Tuning stage II(sold),2011 Cayenne Turbo(sold),waiting 991 GT3 RS


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    Someone posted on another blog that the 991GT3 RS will be shown at the Geneva car show and production to begin in July.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    I think, and hope, the 991 RS is going to be something very special.... Taken from Rennlist:

    Today | 05:43 PM
    TRAKCAR
    Consolidated. Moderators, can we pile a few threads together?
     
    I was told and I think it's correct but who knows..
    Big rear spoiler.
    Its very rough and hardcore, specially the PDK-S only programming. The RS bangs gears insanely hard. Very easy to drive much faster than 997RS.
     
    The promo intro color will be non metallic orange but a deeper darker orange than the .1RS. Its a 4 liter car. 20" front and 21" rear wheels, the rears are 345. 
    Big air intakes in the side only, nothing behind the rear window, just like a Turbo. Very wide ***, wider than TT and the front fenders don't have the clip-on extenders but are real wider finders. 275? But that is my guess.
     
    Introduced next month in Geneva.

    Jeez, sounds mental. Even if only half of that turns out to be true

    We actually mentioned this months ago in this forum...  Smiley

    Anyway: There is nothing 100% yet as far as I heard, the car isn't ready yet (still some adjustments going on) and even if they show the car in Geneva, it may take until summer or even autumn before they release it.

    I guess we need to wait for Geneva to know for sure.

    Nothing is 100% about the GT3 RS yet, I wrote this in another thread. We need to wait for Geneva. If the car is there, Porsche will announce the official release date. If the car isn't there, don't keep you hopes up for a summer release. Smiley

    As to the GT2 RS, I heard a lot of confusing information lately which refers mostly to the engine choice. Sorry, this is all I got. Yes, there were rumors that the GT2 was scratched and that only a GT2 RS will be available but even here, the rumors are confusing, some even indicate the contrary. Surprise, surprise... Smiley

    Ok,but i think they can't wait again too much...or the RS must come with the tail lights of the 991 MK2.

    Or at least there will be NOT an RS MK2 in the  991 series,this time is coming really late this model...Smiley

    Sure i'm happy if will be so special like it seems to be.Smiley

    Well it could be so late they may as well offer the 918 Spyder bucket seats and steering wheel like the Macan to bring the RS interior up to date... But those may be for the .2 only. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    The tail lights does not have to change because of the facelift. On the 996 facelift only the front lights changed. Having said that, I have a strong suspicion the 991 tail lights will look Macan'ish.

    If you mean that "3D effect", you could be right.  Smiley

    The GT3RS does not get the facelift tail lights, this seems to be quite sure.

    ;)


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    The GT3 RS has been discussed in the UNRELEASED MODELS thread. As soon as the GT3 RS is official, we will open up a separate thread. It just doesn't make much sense now.

    Is it confirmed that the RS will be presented in Geneva? So we will actually see it on March 6th? Woow.gif

    No RS at Geneva.
    We have to wait for Paris Motor Show...

    This has been mentioned on Rennlist too. Is this information credible?


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    Like I said, if the GT3 RS won't be shown in Geneva (right now, it doesn't look this way), a summer release will be unlikely. The Paris Autoshow is in October as far as I remember.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    I got my red baby 2 weeks ago, and fortunately the weather in Portland has been decent which allowed me to enjoy my baby for a little while. All I can say is WOW, what a car. It is like a slot car, so agile and not bad driving around town. I was able to take it on couple of long trips on 2-lane winding roads on country side outside Portland. What an experience! Really a fun car. I have been worried about the electrical steering & the PDK since most of my cars are all manual cars, but I discovered none of these concerns are an issue with this car. The steering feels pretty close to my  Lotus Evora, which has one of the best steering anywhere, and I never missed the manual box driving the car. PDK is really different and much better than my 2013 911 4s and the ability to shift into neutral by holding both paddle shifters, gives you the feel of driving a manual. All and all I have been very pleased.

    I had mixed impressions About driving on the rain. When the roads are wet and temperature is higher than 48 F, it is not really too bad and feel very balanced and secure. However driving it during down pours and temperatures close to 40F is right down scary. The back wants to come loose with the slightest throttle application. It is like driving on ice, and the psm does very little and has a delayed response. So if you are not very careful, you will end up in a ditch. 

    I only have few complaints so far. The missing bluetooth is kind of annoying and only became aware of it after the car was about to ship, but my dealer is working on adding it free of charge since they were not aware of it themselves. I also have an alert message popping randomly  indicating the lift system is  malfunctioning, but it appears to be working ok. Anyway I have dropped the car yesterday at the dealership to diagnose and fix the alert message, and add also the Bluetooth. I am also having them installing Michelin PA4 tires, as the Michelin Cups are really scary on cold wet streets, and I want to be able to enjoy the car until I get the chance to take it to the track in April.  I was supposed to get the car back today but Porsche service indicating there is a recall that was just issued by Porsche and they would like to keep the Car till Monday to take care of it. I tried to inquire about the recall but the service clerk was not sure, so I will find out more on Monday.

    finally I would like to leave you with few pictures of the car.
