    Interesting but hardly surprising. PDK, the extra two gears and the amount of torque helps with that... did you measure your car on a dyno?

    Yes...497 HP on the dyno...and I used the speedshifting of the GT3, but the 992 S was direct behind me and had my slipstream.

    Just came home from a perfect trackday at Hockenheim...no rain and no damages.kiss

    Amazing GT2 RS Clubsport...and my GT3 is getting faster 263 Km/h at the braking point for the hairpin.

    must have been a perfect day, I suppose, not too warm for the engine and for the breaks to recover ... any action to be seen at the Porsche Experience Center ... ?

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    Another remark of this great trackday...the Ferrari 488 Pista is a serious track tool...the first time in 30 years, that I see owners use these italian cars really hard for more than two laps.

    This car is amazing fast and had no problems over the whole day - stunning...blush

    OK one the two Pistas visited the gravel at the Sachskurve - the damage on the carbon blades on both sides and the front will cost approx. 30K€, but the owner was not shocked and carried on. smiley

    Looking really good, glad you're back in fighting form.

    I really wonder whether the difference between a Touring and a Clubsport would be tangible on track, and how/where it would show. The Touring for sure is the better looking car.

    The suspension has a different tuning (a bit softer) for the Touring which makes it a bit less compliant on track. the downforce is obviously different but nothing noticeable at low speed.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    I drove last year on the same day at Hockenheim my car and a .2 Wing-GT3...at this track you can feel the difference at two sections clearly - the quick 175 Km/h righthander to the Mercedes tribune and under hard braking from to the hairpin.

    The Touring is here more alife...smiley

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    A little sunday trip to a sportscar-breakfast near Stuttgart at Signal-Design.

    Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser (former head of Porsche Motorsport and now in charge of 911/718) signed my Touring and gave during an interview very interesting infos about the future of sportscars...the important message for us is to enjoy the next 5 to 10 years. laugh

    For example a Taycan with sportstyres can´t match the noise emission rules of the near future and regarding the 992 GT3, they are still fighting to meet the emission targets - release date 2021.

    Lots of interesting cars...a very special  one of "Jägermeister" 935, a pre-Series car of the Exklusive Heritage Targa and a prototype Aston Martin DBX.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Touring on tour

    If you read "between the lines" of this interview...one of the last interesting cars of the sportscar division could be the 60th aniversary car of the 911 in 2023.

    Mr. Walliser is a very interesting man and a true pertrolhead...kiss

    Was the dual color speedster issued like that by the factory or aftermarket?

    This would mean, that the 992.1 GT3 RS could be hybrid already, because emission laws will get stricter still, same for all following GT3 variants (992.2 GT3 etc).

    Now you know why I went for a Huracan Performante. The last real dinosaur. Smiley

    For example a Taycan with sportstyres can´t match the noise emission rules of the near future and regarding the 992 GT3, they are still fighting to meet the emission targets - release date 2021.

    Yep, some issues with the n/a engine and emissions, incl. sound emissions. Power could be slightly less than previously planned. Smiley My take on this: Last n/a GT generation.

    The release date 2021 has been discussed here already, so sad it has been basically confirmed.

    Interesting take on the Tycan with sports tires, I didn't know that. Thanks. I always thought they are planning some sorts of GT version of the Taycan but I guess this is history. Smiley
