    I hope you still will enjoy it as much . If the weather is bad, the Turbo will be the better car .

    Thanks, Eric! Smiley

    Just had my Euro Delivery cancelled - providing a 991.2 Turbo as a loaner instead.  Some problem with German registration of N. American market cars at this time.

    Still get GT3 track experience in Leipzig, get to see my car, and get to track the Turbo with full insurance, etc.

    Pretty short notice - appointment in Leipzig on Monday...

    Ouch, just saw this post. This really sucks but weather over here isn't that great right now, so maybe... Smiley

    Enjoy your stay but this really is a stupid thing to happen. Smiley They couldn't offer a German GT3 for your enjoyment instead? Smiley

    Yeah, I have mixed feelings.  Having a German GT3 would have been great - oh well...

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    The Turbo likely is from their travel club rental fleet. They don't keep GT3s with the travel club that's why.

    At Leipzig there are plenty of GT3s and GT3RSs, but those are strictly school cars. 

    They have a Porsche Ultimate program where people can rent nicer cars, including a 911R, GT3RS and GT3, but I believe those cars are still in France. Think they are trying that program in Miami soon though. And no, don't even bother, they charge outrageous prices. That's why it got a colder than cold reception this summer in South of France.

    Grant,

    Sucks to hear that. Are you staying at Steingenberger in Leipzig?

    For Launch Control, in any Porsche it's as simple as nail the brakes, nail the throttle, when Lunch Control shows on the display, let go of the brake and hang on! 

    Also, hope they let you drive the long course at Leipzig, normally they cut off part of it for for Cayenne and Panamera validations. 

    Thanks, Nick.  Yes, staying at Steigenberger (free with upgraded room due to miscue).  Looking forward to the Leipzig track (and Spa & Ring).

    On the last cars, Dunlop’s were slightly faster and wore a little quicker too.  New ones are likely to be very fast!

    I found the Dunlop’s a little bit stickier on hot tarmac. Quit good, but didn’t last as long as the Cup2’s and the 2’s are way better in rain. Had them on about 2 years ago, so don’t know if they have done anything new on the resent onesSmiley

    Gone back to Cup 2’s and stayed there my selfSmiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Mine came with Dunlops. Main problem was no-one had any clue what pressures to run them at - seemingly including the Dunlop guys I spoke to at the ‘ring once. Higher than the miches basically. They seemed fine though, amd were good in the cold/wet. Didn’t last long. I switched back to Michelin after - not much to dislike about the Cup2 IMO.
