    I'm hoping the GT3 will be in the high $130's before options (less than 7% increase)...

    Plus the market adjustment.  Not in every case but it will apply to some of us.....

    Find a better dealer - maybe outside California...

    Well, I am on my dealers list for the 991.2 GT3 with manual transmission. I'm not holding my breathe on a reasonable price. 

    Me too and my dealer confirmed msrp...

    You guys get these GT'S so cheap, so lucky..Smiley.

    We do get a pretty good deal, but our prices don't include State and Local sales tax (nearly 8% for me) and high first-year licensing fee.

    Depends... If the current GT4 is the last one with n/a engine or maybe even the last GT4, add the 991.2 GT3 to the stable. If not, well... Smiley

    What is the latest rumour? No more NA GT4 or will they run it again in 718 guise?


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Hi guys,

    I am not sure if this is public, the 991.2 GT 3 will get a so called touring option . That means wing delete, not sure about rear seats.

    I'm sure it is not the 1 of April.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Touring option is a well known option of the past. 911 2.7 RS, 964 RS, 993 RS had it, but without wing delete.
    I am not sure if I would order it with touring option, I like the GT3 wing, but not the RS wing.
    It will be interesting how many will order the touring option, if it will come.

    It looks like a clear strategie, the GT3 will be less and less a track car. The track car is the RS.
    I have to say this strategie is perfect for me. I don't want a track car, but something more emotional than the normal 991.2 lineup.

    But for me still hard to believe that we will get the wing delete option.

    In a way it makes sense since they already done the development on the 911r.

    Porsche 911 with a 4.0 litre flat-six GT3 motorsport-engine plus manual gearbox, wing delete and rear seats (Touring package) would be the perfect 911 for many Porsche customers, old and new! Production run will be unlimited and should also offer some interesting "classic" Porsche colours...

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Guys,

    The discussion is becoming very odd ....

    Who on earth can say that a GT3 is becoming too soft and for posers ? The difference in performance with RS will be small, and within the hands of average drivers like me, even negligible.

    This is always interesting to have people bashing GT3 and advertising how GT4 is fantastic.

    I owned two 991 GT3's, I drove extensively one GT4 and also one GT3 RS : we speak about two worlds....

    Performance wise and shifting performance, not even to discuss.

    GT4 is a great car, and so far where I leave , much more a poser car thann gt3 lol....Smiley

    Let's revigorate th debate abou gt4 then, especially the white ones which are faster than any others :-).

    I would be delighted to have 4 seats in my future 991.2 GT3. Because just for brining my kid with me time to time can be convenient. Today this would be highly feasible and will please a lot of people who don t want a GT3 because of 2 seaters only.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Again,

    Don't want to worry people, but the reason why I sold the 2 GT3 .1: first people were crazy enough to buy the car 10k€ higher than I bought it 8 months before (both of them). Second, the current rumors about defective motors are increasing, and I was a bit worried with the noise made by engine at some point.

    Time will tell... this was the highest RPM engine ever, but also a fragile one, look at the post in rennlist... some have consummed the 3rd engine.

    What will be the situation when warranty ends ?

    Accoring to Porsche insiders there, the .2 will be a new engine v2.5, and reliable, and also used in racing. This is the one to get I'm sure of.

    Rgds,

    My sincere apologies for not having checked the calendar and realising that it is the annual "Serious Day" today Smiley

    You need to take my posts with a healthy dose of provocation and sarcasm. Even RC has learned this after 10+ years. I did not write nor mean that the GT3 will become "soft", rather that the perception of a 4-seater wingless GT3 cabrio will skew more towards soft than hardcore. I am certain that a few track fanatics will move on to an RS or another brand too. Not that Porsche needs to worry about this, far more people would buy a GT3 touring version.

    As for the GT4 references, I am pleased that you compare it to it's big brother the GT3 (RS). One is carrying 15 years of motorsport heritage, must be best-in-class and is generally considered to be the ultimate track weapon across all car brands, the other a motorsport enhanced model with some GT3 bits, a normal 911 engine and a price tag which is half the size. If I may borrow your word 'odd', that would have been the perfect description if Porsche had built a GT4 which was better than the GT3, but for far less money.

    Cheers! Smiley

    PS. Of course, none of the above applies to white GT4s, which are disguised 960 prototypes hand-built by Dr Walliser himself.

    It would be my perfect 911. I don't care about the wing or not, but a GT3 with that suspension, gearbox and engine and rear seats is exactly what I want. 

    The reason I would have a 911 is to not-quite daily drive and be able to have my kids in it. I also want to be able to drive to the track and play around with something that is much more track competent than a regular 911. 

    If I'm just buying a 1-2 seat track car it will be a lot faster than any street 911 and if I'm only buying a 2 seater street car it won't be a 911, it will probably be an AM as my wife loves them and would actually like to have one.

    Usable rear seats are, along with brand loyalty, one of the primary reasons I'd buy a 911.

    Bluelines,

    I appreciate sense of humor and I m not bothered at all.

    The all rennteam community is what it is because this various sense of humor and all the off topics !

    i m pretty sure the new GT3 will be the last one of its own, and to be honest this is the rEason why I will,probably buy it new for first time.

    the turbo era will arrive in gt3 area as well I fear ......

    RC, Kreso, any comments on the touring option and the four seaters ? This would be an interesting change of strategy !

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I think there will remain a place for the GT3 as a NA car, it will just be supplanted as the fastest by the GT2 which will be turbo charged as a homologation for racing. There will probably be less and less reason for a GT3RS as the RS will be turbo charged as well. You will have the Turbo and the GT3 on even footing as the top "regular" 911s and the GT2 and it's sub-types as the halo car like during the 993 days.
