    I’m amazed how many people don’t like this or are disappointed with the spec. Looks fantastic to me, and will no doubt be more than the sum of its parts.

    Agree totally. I love the car.

    Same here, I love it. Would get one instantly if I didn't have the R8, seriously. Basically a baby GT2 RS with a fantastic n/a engine, particulate filter or not (still not clear).

    Good summary. I suspect it will be tough to get an allocation here in the UK SmileySmiley.

    Guys are being told NO already, cray, seriously. One got told its a NO for a Gen2 GT3 now and also to forget about the RS Smiley.. He was gutted, it was a double whammy, punch to stomach then bit of afters to the head Smiley..

    Let the UK bunfight begin.

    Oh yea, I was offered a LHD Gen2 RS. Told there would still be a premium on it but not as large as a RHD, obviously.

    The UK GT circus has gone absolutely ballistic..

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Regarding UK allocations, there shouldn't be anything stopping you buying from any mainland EU country - you should be able to simply order a UK country-code RHD car (e.g. the reverse of what I did buying a German-spec LHD Boxster in the UK).  I'm sure some here could help with leads in e.g. Germany.  They will work out more expensive than UK prices, but if you really want one...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I would say lets wait and see what happens with the particulate filter.  If production numbers increase then yes, a question of contacting some dealers and asking if they're interested in a C16 (UK-spec) export deal.  Right now, it will be tough even for local repeat customers.

    I think that there will be NO particulate filter in the RS. First they will supply the EU market, after that ROW.
    A particulate filter will come with the next generation (GT4, ...).

    It would be "stupid" from Porsche to deliver the GT3 without an the RS with the filter.
    There is no way that the filter doesn't "influence" in a negative manner (Sound, performance, ....).

    But it would be as dumb to not fit a particle filter and so to limit production to a few month when they could of made many more over a 12 month period ....

    Maybe that' s what they are debating now ? At the same time it is hard to believe nothing as important  is already set now, so close to launch time .

    Yeh if i can get an RS in Europe in a UK spec i would, i have had nearly 10 cars now and ive been told here in the UK i have 0% chance of getting one. I have paid overs on my GT4 and GT3 and still cant a normal GT3 :-(

    Even if they put the filter in -> the 992 is coming anyway in a few months
    So first supply the EU market and after that ROW would make more sense for me.... but we will se.

    Ah now I know why they don't produce more of the GT cars. Maybe in the future they will mandate you to buy a mission e or a hybrid with every GT purchase to offset the emissions caused by it. Not a bad strategy. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    From joker@rennlist (He is German)

    Joker: "i just see all GT allocations end for EU until Aug.2018. (dealer files)"

    me: "Including the 991.2 GT3 RS ?"

    Joker: "yes.
    until now i do not have any info about a 991.2 GT3 RS for EU after Aug.2018.

    two allocation sheets i saw at two different dealers in two differnet EU countries - and both time it was around 1 or 1,5 times the GT2RS numbers. and just till Aug.2018."

     

    If this is true then maybe the 991.2 GT3RS comes without the particulate filter.

    If so: Will they build more of them after the summer - for Europe too - with filter?

    It's not that people don't like it, it's that you could probably just put the latest tires on the .1 and the difference would be negligible.
