    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    I really like the sound of the lower gear ratios (a track car does not need 200mph gearing) and the wider front track (reduce understeer).

    If someone wants to know about the RSR front suspension (supposedly on the new RS) click "Suspension" on this link:

     Also, Frankfurt show is middle of September, not October (can't wait)...

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Now, this is how it should have been with MK.1 GT3 and GT3 RS. Not only the exterior changes but also couple of important changes under the skin. Well done Porsche Smiley

    This car should blow away every car on the track.(except hyper sports car I mean)  Smiley

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Isn't that the time frame where the 997.2 TT should be revealed also? Maybe they will spread them out a bit...


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    I also want to this event,

    One of the colours mentioned was a matt grey !

    Also the it was hinted that the announcement would be around mid August with the cat then appearing at Frankfurt... 

    Most of the folks in my group were pushing Andreas about the GT3 and RS being to similar, we also stated we wanted string for door shuts and manual windows. He commented that manual windows would add more weight....

    I am thinking about flipping my car to RS as i have got a June build on my GT3 (Note the build date was my choice as i wanted to enjoy my Gen 2 Carrera S for a while longer)

    Odd but true. it was the same with Lotus when they announced elect. windows. weight saving is quite a few kilos...

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    The wider front suspension makes me think that the spy photos we saw a while back - showing flared fenders - must have been the 997.2 GT3RS.  I've been wondering what ever came of that car.

    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Strange that almost all the spyshots of the new RS seem to feature brand new 5 bolt wheels - not the centrelock lightweight wheels from the GT3.2!


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    i wouldn't read to much into this as the car is only a mule. Some of the GT3 prototypes also had 5 bolt wheels 


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

     

    no PDK?


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Jay:

     

    no PDK?


    Are you really surprised? Do you own a PDK car?  I do and I can tell you PDK sucks donkey's b*lls - it has no place in a GT3 let alone a GT3RS.

    (srry Ive had a few beers in the sun tonight!) Smiley


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Jay:

     

    no PDK?

     

    Andreas said that PDK has no place on these cars as it weighs 30KG more than a manual box, also these cars are all about pure driving pleasure.

     


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Just did some looking on web for matt grey cars.

    The colour could look great on RS

    http://www.picturenation.co.uk/view/info/114848/ferrari-car-vehicle

    However the big concern i have is that it must be hard to look after these colours. I am guessing you can't wax or polish the car ? also will it not show every finger mark ?

     


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    When Andreas said stealth colours to my group somebody asked him if matt black was going to be one of those colours. He replied ""no, I dont like matt black and besides it is a very difficult colour to paint to porsche's high standards".  I would assume its the matt aspect that makes it difficult to paint rather than just matt black so I would guess that no matt colours are likely. What he said to us seems to be in slight contradiction to what he said to your group Chris if he mentioned Matt Grey - who knows? Smiley

    He wouldnt be drawn on aything further on "stealth colours" other than he said the new RS will not be available in the current Orange or Green! He did say that white would be available as a standard no cost colour though. (I believe it was c£2k extra on 997.1 GT3RS)


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    Andreas listen me!!!

    RIVIERA BLUE with STONE GREY DECALS and RIMS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    you will sell one more for sure

    New RS rear wing close up!

    Thats some pretty serious triple air scoop! 

     


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    I've driven PDK, and liked it - I certainly understand that this is a matter of tase though.

    I like the idea of shifting without taking hands off the steering wheel - especially on the track.  I know we've been all over that.

    How much weight will the in-car jack system add to the GT3?  Anyone?


    Re: 997.2 GT3 RS Leaked Specs

    From Memory i think Andreas said 6-7KG
