    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    RC:

    I don't have a clue, to be honest. The price tag doesn't seem to be right but my dealer just told me yesterday that there were some issues with customers who ordered the "Limited Edition" blindly and apparently all were shocked with the unofficially leaked 206000 EUR price tag. Another theory is that Porsche wanted to charge that much money for a really special edition model with a different body and even PDK but due to technial/approval issues, this project had been abandoned and the customers get practically the same GT3 RS, just with the 4.0/500 hp engine and a few chassis tweaks.

    I wish I knew more but something weird is going on because first cars are supposed to go to customers in May. Not much time left to officially announce the car.

     There seem to be some development related issues (cooling...) as well. I am surprised that the official annoucement has still not been made. It was due for April 6, I thought Smiley


    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    I was actually supposed to see a customer car early April but never got the chance.

    Something is going on but I don't have a clue what. Maybe just a harmless change of plans.

     The German price is Euro 203k incl. VAT.

    That means it'll cost around $185k USD if the typical ratio is maintained.

     

    I think I'm not saying anything by pointing out that the "typical" ratio is not maintained.

    Hint: Look at the GT2 RS prices in Europe and the US.  Smiley

    I also think that I can say without a problem that the last GT3 RS engine will also be the last Mezger derived engine in a Porsche 911 street production car.

    If you are a car collector, this car is definetely the one you want to have, trust me. Smiley

    P.S.: Thanks, Markus. Smiley

    Are you saying it will be priced like a GT2RS? I have it on good authority that it will be almost right in the middle between the GT2RS and the standard GT3RS. Not sure what that translate to in Euro.

    I don't know if there are still any keepers nowadays in this price range. Technology moves so fast and/or the produced numbers are most times too high. Smiley

    997 GT2 RS

    997 GT3 RS ("last edition")

    968 CS

    All keepers for me... 

    As you can see, only one Ferrari on that list.


    So why aren't you picking up a 968CS? Over here those are cheap right now, about the price of a new Golf GTI. In fact I am considering one as we speak, but space issue is restricting me at the moment.

    Hi Way - I think RC meant that the 4.0 will be priced like the GT2RS in the USA, in the sense that there is a much different exchange rate used for that model compared to all the other Porsches (usuall we get a very favorable price in US Dollars compared to Euros, but the GT2RS is relatively expensive in Dollars compared to Euros and the 4.0 will follow this trend).  The actual price will still be between the GT3RS and GT2RS, but the premium for the 4.0 compared to the GT3 3.8 will be relatively higher in the US than in Europe.

    To see what I mean, compare the price of a GT3 in Euros and USD as well as the GT2RS in Euros and USD on www.porsche.de and www.porscheusa.com

    Cheers,

    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    I see. Thanks for the clarification. Given the Australian dollars is at a high, why doesn't Porsche then price this car lower! Damn!
