    What is this Turbo with Ducktail prototype??

    On the latest Shmee vid, there are several sightings of what looks and sounds like a 992 wide body Turbo, but with a ducktail.  Could the 50th Anniversary Carrera RS be a turbo??

    In that video, they also show a GT3 Touring where the shifts sounded like PDK to me.

    I used to find his videos so boring but lately I find the videos of him visiting private collections and doing roadtrips with his cars very enjoyable.

    Re: What is this Turbo with Ducktail prototype??

    Everyone who met Shmee (Tim) in real life said, that he is a very nice guy and completely different from how he is in his videos. So here's my question: Why is he like that in his videos? Smiley Maybe he doesn't want to change anything (never change a running system)? I don't know but if everyone who met Tim in real life says he is nice, he has to be nice. I may get the chance to meet him at Gercollector at some point, we'll see.

    Re: What is this Turbo with Ducktail prototype??

    I think his main audience is below 25 and never owned one of those cars - hence the description of all buttons and details - it's very little about the driving - more about what this is for and that......- what bothers me massively is his obsession with everything carbon - carbon this carbon that.....- but for what he gets credit is that he is mostly "first" to show something and t4 is being watched all the time

    I actually dislike how he talks in his videos, especially how he starts them, not necessarily what he explains (he is definitely less boring than Doug DeMuro Smiley Smiley). 

    Most annoying car person on YouTube is Thomas Majchrzak from Autogefuel (previously or still??? Autogefuehl). His videos are well made, he explains every detail but his English drives me crazy, I can't help it. I can't listen to him more than five minutes. He talks in a very good English but with a German intonation (I hope this is the right word for it Smiley) and it sounds horrible. I even contacted him (maybe I'm crazy Smiley) to tell him about it (in a very friendly way) but he snapped at me and told me that all his users love his "adorable" (his words) accent and he never bothered to improve it. Smiley

    He’s popular because he knows cars.

    He knows as much cars as I know of brain surgery.

    He can read off scripts, and he does recognizes what car is is looking at or presenting.

    But real knowledge of cars? No.

    I will say that his driving at the Ring has improved a ton since I saw him there (the bar was set very low)

    Admit it, not only does it know cars but manufacturers give him unbelievable access to their cars and factories. I'm not saying he's a pro driver or has great driver skills but he knows enough to capture a wide audience including us.Smiley

    Re: What is this Turbo with Ducktail prototype??

    I think Schmee does his ‘prep’ rather well. I wouldn’t ask him any highly technical engineering questions, but when he films, he usually has the facts he presents correct and usually in more depth than his ‘competitors.’ That said, I’ve been watching a lot of Iain Tyrrell lately...

    Hehe yes I do envy his Instagram followers count 1.5mil at last count. But he does follow meSmiley 

    With his numerous followers, it is a great platform for manufacturers to tack onto. Especially when he isn't like a typical journalist that might criticize the product, see Chris Harris. He never goes off script, he will present whatever is written for him. 

    Shmee reminds me of the Subway guy on TV commercials. Or that Shamwow dude. Always enthusiastic for the product in front of the camera.

    He is a nice guy in person. I first met him at Pagani in my 911R, me and my car made it in his video that day. After that I ran into him again at the Ring. And one more time randomly in London on the street.

    Re: What is this Turbo with Ducktail prototype??

    The article talks about years of testing to bring the car from the track to the street. That could be the RSR road version. Mid engined 911.  Maybe the 22 version of the 72 RS ? Would fit also the link to the museum.

    I agree - that cover seems to be hiding a 992 turbo, rather than this duck-tail spoiler...  C7BEAB03-A272-4B0C-AF73-D01AEAA5AA36.gif

    Re: Porsche 992 Sport Classic

    There aren't the rear fender air intakes that denote a Turbo, versus a turboed, model.  The rear fascia is probably being used as camouflage during testing before the rear panel is fitted.

    Re: Porsche 992 Sport Classic

    I´ve been at Zuffenhausen this week - almost everything is closed...museum, Porscheshops...but the factory is busy.

    I had the chance to visit the new Porsche "Werkswagen-Verkauf" including the new factory repair-shop at Werk 4. The repair shop is just for press cars and factory cars - a huge facilty...they used to be at Ludwigsburg and moved now to Zuffenhausen.

    There will be two very interesting limited editions during the next years - one of them is the 992 Sport Classic.

    The car in the video has the bubble roof, so it should be the SportClassic mule...the final product in 2022 will get a interesting engine (turbo) with an unusual huge power increase...smiley.

    The second limited editon will come from the GT-Department one year later, very spectacular...basis will be the 992 GT3 RS.

    Of course - everything I wrote are just rumors...blush
