    Slower than a GT3 is a fair guess.

    Those won't disappoint.

    I am skipping the 992 GT3 and GT3RS and go straight to the GT4RS.

    Those buying a 992 GT3 is just wasting their money. 

    At 6th/10 to 9th/10, the new front geometry won't make a difference on the GT3. It's only noticeable when one pushes past 9th/10 when the improvement shows up. And only at the hands of a capable driver.

    On paper they are the faster car as the capable drivers can take advantage of the extra grip above 9th/10. Not many are actually in that 'capable' category however.

    Those who 'think' they are capable but aren't actually officially in the 'capable' category would be much better served with a GT4RS. 

    After the 918, there isn't a better driver focused street car until the GT4RS. And no, this isn't about manual transmission or not. This is about how the car communicate to the driver and the other way back.

    Re: GT4RS

    Two problems with the GT4 RS 

    1. It has been seen for the last 3 years. Parts taken from the 991 GT3 RS . It looks good, but does not look new.

    2. Engine. It is not (most probably) a GT engine.  No screaming to 9000 rpm.

    Re: GT4RS

    Also pricewise - If they ad the NA engine it would probably be as expensive as a GT3....


    Re: GT4RS

    I guess that they can pump up the current engine to something like 460 hp and that‘s it. Porsche will further tweak some aero or whatever, put some drama to it and call it the RS. I simply could not see a lot of hard core 911 enthusiasts to swap „car layouts“ …. Wait and see …

    Given a choice, I actually prefer rear engine (maybe the fault of 20 years of 911 track driving has warped me).

    However, I do prefer a smaller car (would gladly shrink the GT3 if I could).

    Can you give us a hint about suspension changes.  This is where I think the GT3 has a big advantage on track over the GT4.  Will the 4RS continue with struts at all 4 corners?   If so, this is a limitation in my mind.  Have they managed to squeeze more rubber under the front fenders (another issue resulting in understeer and front tire wear)?

    Ok, then they should just pull out all the stops.  510PS GT3 engine, 992 GT3 front suspension, multilink or double wishbone rear suspension, wider front track and wheels/tires, and true pdk-s gearbox (close ratio 7spd with top speed in 7th) with electronically controlled LSD.

    That would make an RS statement…

    Re: GT4RS

    Then there will be lots of 911 GT3 slots open!  Yeah!  
    All this number control by Porsche will be interesting when the EVs come into play. 
    Personally I hope an RS EV is never built. Don’t do to the RS what Ford did to the Mustang. 
    Porsche EV should be Tartan if top spec.

    The GT3 engine wasn't designed for a midship configuration and the engineering costs would be too exorbitant to justify its inclusion even in the RS variant.  The suspension modifications are more economically viable.

    I actually think it would require much more expense to upgrade the suspension than to make the engine work (not that hard to turn it around and adapt the intake and relocate the external oil tank).

    The new front GT3 suspension isn't going into the GT4RS, if that's what you asking. 718s are still on the old 991 'platform' after all. 

    The new GT3 is a great handler, there is no question about it. That new front end transform the handling of the car. On and off track. GT3RS is the next inline to get that new suspension. Perhaps the next version of the GT4RS will get it, once the Cayman/Boxster migrate to the 992 platform. 

    Like everyone else, I have been on forever with the rear engine 911. Raced on a Cup car and also 'daily-ing' my GT4 Clubsport on track. I know what the 911 will do when pushed, but I really like the agility the Clubsport provides. 

    Think I am the one that broke the news on the GT4RS just about 3 years ago, here and Rennlist. It still is the car I am waiting for the most.

    There are times when one don't need the latest and greatest. Or the fastest. 

    I reckoned I probably would have more fun in the Alps in a GT4RS than the new GT3. On those narrow roads the smaller car is a better choice.

    Porsche made that statement with the release of the GT4. The Motorsport 4.0 liter cannot be worked to fit the space of the 718 layout.
