    Probably - I woke up early this morning, expecting the written press release.  They're really making us wait until the last minute this time Smiley

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I wonder what the status is on PTS option. Will it be available now or will we have to wait until next spring which many are claiming?

    I wonder how that'll play out... the investor/flipper bandwagon has cottoned onto the idea that they'll get more for PTS cars, so I suspect this round of orders will be flooded with PTS requests..

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I think you have to really want a particular color and think that you'll keep the car forever to go through the pain and delay of the PTS process.  If one was buying the car to flip or keep for a short period, I think the advantage of having the car very early is at least as valuable as the PTS option (which almost always causes you to miss the early build cycles).

    Hopefully, there will be a new color or two that is interesting - not sure I am brave enough for Miami Blue...

    Grant, I tend to agree with you. What is ironic is usually the best customers get the early allocations and Porsche is shutting them out for PTS. Doesn't make any sense considering they have been raising the price of PTS significantly over the past couple of years.Smiley

    So if I go to my dealer now they will not act like they have not heard of it?  Good luck. I have been trying to put a cash deposit down for months.

    991.2 GT3. I kid you not. They keep thinking I mean the GTS. All they know about is what is on the lot. 


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Hopefully by tomorrow they will have a clue. What do you expect? You live in Kansas!Smiley

    BTW, if you can snag an allocation for the .2GT3 don't hesitate. It's the best value performance car Porsche sells.kiss

    They won't be able to act stupid (or maybe they really are that ignorant) after the press release and Geneva reveal.  It will be plastered all over www.porsche.com with a GT3 mini-site as well...

    I would call them the moment they open tomorrow morning (or go there) and put a credit card deposit if you are interested.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

     the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 500 hp from a naturally aspirated four-liter flat-six available with PDK or six-speed manual Atlanta, Georgia. Porsche motorsport technology continues to be incorporated into street-legal sports cars. The new 911 GT3 was developed in Weissach,and will be manufactured on the same production line as all other 911 street and 911 GT3 Cup racecars. The centerpiece of the latest 911 GT3 is the new naturally aspirated 4.0 liter flat-six engine which produces 500 hp and 338 lb.-ft. of torque. This new, high-reving powerplant is based on the one now used in all 911 race cars, including the 911 GT3 R and 911 RSR. The redesigned chassis with Rear Axle Steering and systematic lightweight construction is specifically tuned to produce superior driving dynamics in conjunction with the naturally aspirated engine. Thanks to a power-to-weight ratio of 6.4 pounds per hp, the 911 GT3 feels very much at home on the test track. With the standard seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) — specifically constructed and tuned for the GT3 — the 3,153 pound two-seater accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds with a top track speed of 197 miles per hour. For purists, Porsche will also offer the 911 GT3 with a six-speed manual transmission. With this transmission, the 911 GT3 weighs in at 3,116 pounds, allowing it to achieve a top track speed of 198 miles per hour and hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. Fast in corners, stable on the straights: Track-bred chassis with rear axle steering The chassis of the new 911 GT3 benefits from Porsche motorsport racing experience, and it has been tuned for improved handling and driving dynamics. The chassis and active Rear Axle Steering offer superlative handling characteristics. Depending upon the speed, the rear wheels are steered either in the opposite or the same direction as the front wheels, improving the vehicle’s agility and stability. The dynamic engine mounts and the rear locking differential, both fitted as standard, also boost the car’s driving dynamics. News Release March 7, 2017 No. 17/17 Public Relations Department 2 of 3 Public Relations Department Product Communications Product Communications Frank Wiesmann David Burkhalter Phone +1.770.290.3414 Phone +1.770.290.3511 frank.wiesmann@porsche.us david.burkhalter@porsche.us Visually, the lightweight carbon fiber rear wing reinforces the fact that the design of the car is driven by aerodynamics. The lightweight front fascia and the front spoiler are designed for optimum airflow. The rear end with exhaust air openings and a new diffusor also contribute to the overall aerodynamic efficiency. Interior: A control center for exceptional driving dynamics The interior of the new 911 GT3 is designed to underscore the exciting driving experience. The GT Sport steering wheel designed with a 14.1 inch diameter was adopted from the 918 Spyder. The Sport Seats Plus feature enhanced bolsters for increased lateral support and electric adjustment of the seat back and seat height. There are two other seat options available for the 911 GT3. The Adaptive Sport Seats Plus offer an 18-way electric adjustment along with a power steering column and seat memory. Alternatively, Full Bucket Seats with electric height adjustment and a fixed carbon fiber reinforced backrest are also available. As on all GT variants, the rear seats are omitted to save weight. Porsche Track Precision App as standard In addition to the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) — which includes a navigation system capable of real-time traffic information and the Connect Plus Module including Apple Car Play — the Porsche Track Precision App is also included as standard equipment. Using this app, 911 GT3 drivers can display, record, and analyze detailed driving data on a smartphone. Pricing and availability The 2018 911 GT3 is scheduled to reach U.S. dealers in fall 2017. The base MSRP will be $143,600, excluding the $1,050 delivery, processing, and handling fee.

    I'm guessing a little lower, like 911R (redline is 8,600 on the tach, but limiter intervenes at 8,500).  Hopefully less intrusive limiter on GT3...
