    So:

    • Item 1, no clue, only information: "Pending price negotiation" -> ?
    • Item 2: first deliveries january '22, no manual transmission -> GT3 RS?
    • Item 3: announcement November ninth (or September 11?), first deliveries calendar week 3 of 2022, ony narrow wheel base(?) -> ?
    • Item 4, announcement November 17, first deliveries CW48 of 2021, only saloon available -> New variant of the Panamera? Or of the Taycan?
    • Item 5: GT4 RS, also confirming a 718 Spyder RS in 2023

    Anybody here care to fill in the question marks? I guess with all our combined knowledge we should be able to come far

    I was also thinking number 2 could be the RS, but Whoopsy mentionned the SportClassic, maybe it's that one?

    Deliveries of RS in January does not follow the usual model. Presentation was always around February or March with first deliveries in June.

    With no extra air intakes on the side ? Doesn't the Turbo need them ?

    Re GT4 RS vs 992 GT3, according to these guys, the steering of the GT4 is less direct than even the previous gen GT3:

    What are the chances that Porsche have improved on the steering of the 4RS?

    Curious. I thought the steering was better on the 981 GT4 than it was on the 991 GT3. Felt like it benefited from the more neutral weight balance.

    On my GT4 CS race car, the steering is no different than in a 991 Cup car. And the CS uses stock steering rack. Unless they had dumbed it down with the 718, which is not possible. 

    If anything, the GT4CS turns in better than a 991 Cup car. And those Cup cars also uses stock production rack in the first place.

    Yes, for first time in the 992 Cup.  Before, they always used hydraulic rack (even when street cars used electric steering).  I think RSR still uses hydraulic (with pump spun by electric motor).

    Re: GT4RS

    In the end they are all hydraulic racks, the 'electric' steering everyone bashed about is still a hydraulic rack, it's just that the pump no longer being driven by a pump attached to the engine, but an electric motor. literally same system but a different pump is all the difference there is. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    No, in the current RSR and the previous Cup they have "Electro-Hydraulic" steering which is a hydraulic steering rack with a hydraulic pump that is turned by an electric motor (instead of from a belt on the crankshaft like most street cars used to have).

    But always on the GT4 CS and the new 992 Cup, they use true Electric Power Steering.  There are no hydraulic parts at all - the steering is changed by electric servo motors.

    And the street GT3 and GT4 have used pure electric steering since the 991.1 and 981...

    The only serious super sports cars that still use hydraulic (Electro hydraulic, since e-motor spins pump) is McLaren.  I give them credit for prioritizing steering feel above simplicity, economy, and a little weight savings.

    I guess EPS probably is more reliable too - no fluid to leak or overheat (the 987 was famous for having the hydraulic power steering overheat on the track - not been a problem with EPS in the 981 and 991).

    Re: GT4RS

    Ah ha, you dive DEEP into them indecisionkiss

    Out of all the cars I have ever driven, not counting the race cars, I would say I like the Speciale, my 12C, my 918. In no particular order. But I do really like the super quick rack on the Speciale. The 991.1 GT3RS was great too. Oh and my 4C.

    Another interesting note, the 991.2 Cup car feels better than the 991.1 Cup car.

    Re: GT4RS

    People are starting to get calls here from dealers to get ready for orders. Seems official launch is imminent.

    Still rumors, but what comes out here is that base price could be CHF 145k, with options count CHF165k

    470 HP, and maybe 2 options of gearbox.

    Only rumors. The 470 HP rumor is a bit more serious. 

    The manual option is much more uncertain. Confusing informations for the moment. It is only a ''possibility'' 

    If we refer to what AP said a few years back, RS will only offer what is the fastest.

    Re: GT4RS

    Last rumor I heard about the GT4 RS (early 2021) said "500 hp or slightly less". So 470 hp could be possible but I guess not less. PDK is very likely, no clue about manual.
