    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Touring looks beautifully understated... had the opportunity to change my order to touring version but decided that I would miss the wing too much, just part of the GT3 mystique to me. Getting Irish Green which will land in late February.... and congrats Nick.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    I finally got my confirmation for my GT3 Touring in PTS for February production. Specification will be worked out next Wednesday at Porsche Exklusiv Manufaktur in Stuttgart, I have already sent them some ideas and I guess speccing it to my liking will but fun (not for my wallet though).

    On the other hand will be sad to see my Aubergine go, such a great car and the color is something special, getting better and better the longer I had the car.

    Looking forward to see you final specs and photos when you get it Smiley 

    The more I think about it , the more I want a Touring Smiley

    You should also keep the Aubergine if you can  . My LO gets also better and better . Would ( will ) be very hard to part with

    Honestly if I could have  any 911 from the current lineup it would be the GT3Touring, hands down.

    The model delete is standard for the Touring.  It just has a little GT3 Touring badge in the grill on the engine cover.

    What about the rear diffusor, different software (Touring has a retractable rear spoiler) and other aerodynamical differences? Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    diffusor are the same for sure.

    the issue is the rear small wing and the specific programing of the ECU plus any kind of trick they have done to make it a touring and they will not advertise.

    in any case, and history talks, a lightweight/clubsport spec has always a better value than a touring. order a wing, dont stress about it, it is GT car.

    Actually I've looked into this and the installation is not much different than adding PSE post delivery. The deployment of the spoiler at specific speed (75mph) is done through the ECU.  The spoiler, switch, and wiring can all be done post delivery.  If the diffuser is the same, then that does not need changing. It would be ironic if Porsche offered a wing delete through Tequipment down the road as they do with PSE and the Power kit (which is a far more involved process even for the .2S).

    The air intakes and position of the two fans are quite different on the winged GT3 compared to GT3 Touring

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    kiss The GT3 Touring isn't just a GT3 with a Carrera rear wing, many seem to overlook that.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    More to the point it doesn’t look like a ricer wannabe car... It brings an elegance that Ferraris have...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Well I would only make the change if it can be done properly. I had a discussion w/ some Porsche people who are knowledgeable and they believe it is not a major issue, but this was informal discussion which is always more speculative than substantive.  I am not fond of the wing, but,. for better or worse, I don't believe in non-OEM modifications.

    but some people don't care how expensive it "looks" but rather that it looks better to them and calls less attention, that's a plus to some people, in which I include myself. Gotta respect both sides, to each his own Smiley

    Hmm, maybe buying the Tour to mimic the R?yes A lot cheaper to get the T.
