    LET’S REFLECT ON THE ABSURDITY of the moment: Late last year, this magazine sent your narrator to Europe for the launch of a 700-hp, rear-engine, two-wheel-drive, turbocharged Porsche. Three laps into the day, your narrator found himself casually doing 170 mph on the front straight of the Algarve International Circuit. (Big place, ballsy corners, used for F1 testing, Portugal.)

    This story originally appeared in the February, 2018 issue of Road & Track - Ed.

    There are some arriving to Spain now...not very originals with the colours... :( But if it's already difficult to drive around here with such a car, in a flashy colour...

    Sevilla:

     

    Alicante:

     

    Zaragoza:

     

    Madrid:

     

    Apparently there is another one in Valencia, and last one in Barcelona

    You have explained it many times about Bavaria. Multipliy that per 10 and you get what is driving a supercar in Spain, with the exception of Puerto Banus


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    There are many other exceptions, zero problems around my neck of the woods. In fact the problem is mainly on the large cities like Madrid, Barcelona, etc... and even then its not the same problem as Christian describes were you cant take a 911 to work or pick up your kids at school...

    We have an international school here as well, in English, no issues at all. No wonder, most parents are wealthy, so you actually have to bring/pick up the kids in an expensive car, otherwise they look bad. Smiley Our kids were supposed to go to this school but we decided that it is better that our kids go to a public school, so they don't get to live and be educated in a "bubble" full of wealthy kids and too nice teachers. Smiley

    Weird, when I was at school I would have loved to have been picked up in a Porsche.  I remember one kid being torn apart due to his Dad driving a Skoda (80's car, object of much ridicule in the UK at the time..), but don't remember any kids getting made fun of for nice cars..   Times, they change.

    I do not remember any case of bullying during my school time back in the days. Nowadays, I hear of so many cases and mostly, surprisingly, because kids aren't wealthy enough to buy nice shoes or clothing or a popular smartphone. Smiley Probably the reason my kids never got bullied but this doesn't mean it is acceptable. So the less wealthy kids actually bully the even lesser wealthy kids because they don't own nice stuff but on the other hand, they make nasty comments when my kids actually "show off" with really wealthy stuff (Porsche, etc.). My daughter has her iPhone X wrapped in a cover, so nobody recognizes it. She is actually more worried about the teachers though, her social studies teacher wore a Che Guevara t-shirt last year.

    I've found no problems either way I'm my daughter's school, all sorts of cars and its no issue if they are very expensive or very cheap, some people have city beater cars but then other cars in the garage as well, so nobody pays attention. Kids have to come with the uniform with jacket and tie, etc so no problem how they dress either. The teachers also pay attention to this stuff, and don't have to deal with public school teachers which are usually leftists with hangups and envy about everything.

    Breaking news. Seems like Porsche is running way behind on the production of the GT2RS. I was just told my car has been moved from a May production to possible Aug/Sept/Oct. They can't even give me a month yet.

    Not just mine, but all VIP cars with CXX options are being moved back, those with heavy Exclusive customizations got move back even more.

    Isn’t there some factory shutdown in May etc that is driving this?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    WP problem ?  on the GT3 WP is only available in Feb 2019

    Don't know. But it would seems Porsche is shuffling productions around. Farmer here was told his slot was moved from June to April. One of his friend's go from May to July. 

    And on a side note, All Porsche deliveries to the UK has been shutdown for 5 months, May to Sept. All models.

    Yes - that must be the shutdown that I was told of. Is this Dieselgate related or is it punishment for Brexit?

    You have your way. I have my way. As for the correct way and the only way, it does not exist.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Yes, very confusing. V8 to v15 to v23 and now back to v15. Let’s see on Monday. yes I’ve got WP and CXX, but a friend of mine has not and he got his production moved forward yesterday..... Hard to understand what’s happening and whyheart


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Interesting.

    Checked with my dealer, still maintains September/October delivery.

    No clue about that.

    But I will speculate perhaps it is the new MD asserting himself at the top of the food chain to get all retailers inline about how cars are to be sold. He didn't do something that drastic when he was in Canada, but he did whipped everyone in shape and double digit growth every single year he was head.
