    Or the GT4 a second year in a row blingbling.gif

    Maybe GT4 gets banned from ECOTY...

    ... like some GT4-owners from a certain forum. Smiley

    bluelines:

    What does those red arrows point at? Identical air outlets? That 991.2 seem to sport a 991.1 GT3 rear anyway. I bet we will soon see a more camouflaged one with different taillights and wing.

    But not identical in size and shape, here's a better rear shot of 991.1


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    EVO will not test old/previous cars that already participated in previous ECOTY tests

    Here are some possibilities for 2016:

    - Porsche 991.2 C2 / C2S
    - Porsche 911 R
    - Porsche 718 Boxster
    - McLaren 570S / 570GT
    - BMW M2
    - Audi R8 V10
    - Ferrari F12 TDF
    - Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2
    - Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I have see the complete car, but only in factory pictures, the front bumper will have a new design with the slates in reverse, sort of inline wit the 991.2s, the bigger rear vents are for the hotter running engine.

    It will be THE car to get.

    If they release it as a manual, and it's as good as you guys are making it out to be, it will be interesting to see what happens to 997 GT3 cars. I attribute a lot of their appreciation to the "last of the manuals" thinking.

    And last Mezger motor and last hydraulic steering, and smaller chassis...

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Contrary to popular belief, I've had GT3s on my mind for quite a while, but prices never came down to where I thought they should/would. At $100K, I'd be in one for sure.

    I'll give you my Porsche-hate run-down:

    CGT -- ugly car, sounds sweet, was tempted at low 300s, but figured I'd treat it like shit and it would cost to much to maintain, didn't expect it to appreciate, special
    918 -- sweet everything, special, just out of my price range
    911 GT cars -- just a normal high-end/exotic of the moment like any other brand
    911 -- too expensive for what it is, can buy a 12C for the price of a new C2S
    Panamera -- Ugly and don't need, but Sport Turismo looked great. Would rather have an S-Class though.
    SUVs -- don't really care about performance when driving SUVs, so mainly just buying the badge
    Boxster -- great looking, but I allocate my money to exotics and I'd have no reason to own a Boxster over something cooler
    Cayman -- would rather have a 911 hahaha

    Actually, at the end of this year, I want to sell the 458 and order a 911.2 GT3. If not this year then the next year 2017.

    When is the 991.2 GT3 release date, March 2017?

    From talking to AP and FSW, it will be the best car yet by then.

    But I am still trying to figure out how they can improve on the current RS. When I sit in mine and drive it, I simply cannot see anywhere where they can improve upon. As in, I have absolutely zero complaint about the car.

    I drove it on the street, at the limit on a track, at the limit on ice and the car seems so perfect.

    The best thing about the current RS is that it is not limited like the 997 RS4.0 where one is afraid to drive it and damage it.

    AP always says that for any new GT car that comes out . He better , if he wants to keep his job Smiley

    I also do not see how they can improve it, other then raw performance  .  Maybe work a bit on the RWS to make it even more nimble ? PDK-S even faster and more sporty by allowing a mode that would make more ' noises and quicks ' ? 

    The only place where I would like improvement for the little I have driven my car yet, would be more power / speed when fully accelerating on straights in 5th , 6th and 7th gear .

    That would be great but will never be done because of the extra fuel consumption . 

    I also do not care for any speed above 290-300km/h

    Any car can be improved upon. Actually by the time customers has their hand on the car a newer better version is already being driven somewhere...
