    Honestly they look practically the same in these pics. The rear would differ more though.

    The 918 for example is also a halo car and it's one of the most beautiful designed car.

    Only in Black, other colors are kind of bland when parked next to this Smiley

    everything pales next to these.

    Are you sure....

    LaFerrari looks awesome... from an angle you'll never look at it from. F40 all the way.

    1500915261497Screen Shot 2017-07-24 at 17.53.40.png Someone on RL posted this comparison, I guess I am probably biased but the 997 seems a bit prettier in my eyes.

    I agree wholeheartedly, except that the 997 started the trend with the rectangular centre inlet, something which they tried to keep and expand upon in the 991 version. IMO, this rectangular shape clashes with the design language of the 911 and the designers damn well know it. It is probably done to make the model look purposeful and form over function... Well, all I can say is: "Meh!"

    porsche is far behind in their design language, entrapped by the 911 legacy. they need to start from a clear slate with the 960.

    This is the Porsche I want. Totally bad ass and worthy of the performance they want to achieve. I'll pass on a 700 hp 911 with a giant wing and contrasting carbon hood.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Black on black or maybe Throt's sea blue will be great on the GT2. Weissach smiley All to get the ugly black part on the lower back "disappear"..... Looks really cheapheart

    Think I'll go with black. Then the rubber marks from tracking won't be so obviouskiss 

    By the way, the head of my mechanics call my GT3 "Lillen" ­čś│­čś│­čś│ NO bush at all in THAT name ( no Swedish speaking... Lillen translates to "tiny" or "the small one"....)

    It is a 2 cm curb. No wonder. If this person has driven a 911 prior they would have some idea of the overhang in front. This is not a good Porsche to learn with. Lol. 

    It is a factory car. EM = Entwicklung Motorsport. I assume the person has driven quite a few 911 before Smiley

    Does that make it less of a mistake?  It is not a big deal but you must admit as a 911 driver that we all under estimate the overhang coming from the old aircooled cars especially. After a few kisses one learns the distance to the front. Your assumption that the licenceplate belongs always to a good driver may be true but so is my observation that an experienced 911 driver should know better.   Like I said. No big deal. No need to get defensive about some strangers driving skills. I also know what the factory plates look like. Lol.

    But question is: which one is more interesting...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    The car in GT Silver with gold wheels at Goodwood actually didn't look too bad.
    I'm no fan of GT Silver or gold wheels but the more I looked at the car the more I liked the combo.

    No problem for me - until they start to overtake me - then I will get envious :-)


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

     

    Huracan Girlie = About 18 yrs old and looks to be a more expensive to keep. Smiley..

    GT2 Girlie = About 21 yrs old and looks more sensible and plain, thus being cheaper to keep. Smiley..

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Just spoke to my dealer about allocations and confirmed orders...

    In a nutshell, I can get a GT2 RS, delivery either in mid-December 2017 or sometime after March 2018. That is the good news.

    The bad news is that unofficially all Porsche dealers in Germany insist on the lucky winners also buying a Panamera S Diesel which is not moving at all here, due to the Diesel scandal and the potential future local lock-out from large metropolitan areas such as Munich or Stuttgart.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    that would be pretty bad Publicity if true - I think yr dealer takes you for a ride indecision


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Buy it and cross your fingers. People in the US seem to think a 997 GT2 RS is worth nearly $500K for some reason, so a 991 should do pretty well too assuming the P-bubble doesn't pop.

    I agree, I just hope they don't adapt too much to the general (new) design language at Porsche. A new halo product deserves a slightly different design language but I guess they are going to go the 918 route in a way or another (which is fine with me).

    Three years ago the 997 GT2RS that was produced in far lower numbers than the 991 GT2RS sold for substantial discounts as a used car. The same will happen with the new GT2RS. Who will still want it as a used car at MSRP (or even higher) after the car market came back to normal? Nobody. It is a consumable and will depreciate. Only very rare cars might still classify as an investment when the bubble is gone.
