    No doubt and VW Group "accelerated" this process by not dealing properly with this emissions scandal from the start, by not allowing environmental groups and governments getting after them. So dumb... 🙄 If they would have admitted everything and generously compensated EU customers in the process, we wouldn't even talk about it anymore.

    ...keep in mind we already know that the new (to be released in 2019) 911 Speedster will have the Porsche Motorsport 4.0 naturally-aspirated flat-six engine...

    what's about regulation in 2020? this is the point you forget here. 911 speedster even with all the BS from marketing, this car will see the road and that was sealed in the marble since many months with 1948 pieces.

    992 GT3 is on the road since July, with different engines Smiley

    The Speedster could come with the WLTP engine from the GT3 RS, so with particle filter. It's a limited production series and they will have all sold by the end of 2019.

    If they could only get a wheelchair into a 911 GT3 I see an opening in the regulations.

    Not that bad is a great verdict but this should be a car you’re dying to get and that it simply isn’t.

    Porsche is almost forcing the want for two 911s.  The GT3 Touring for street and the GT3 RS for track!


    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    I saw a 992 on the highway yesterday, with the spoiler up. Looked just fine in Mexico Blue. 


    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    The first spy videos of the 991.1 GT3 were published approximately 1 year ahead of its official presentation in Geneva 2013. 

    Given the fact that we're seeing now spy videos of the 992 GT3, it looks as if it could indeed come out as early as Geneva 2020.

    as per plan. 1 regular year for carreras and then the first GT product.Smileyso 2020 is right.

    but to me (and the discussion I got), this look like communication crap again. that engine was supposed to be there for a long time as GT department is a success due to the crap engine range proposed on the regular 911.

    now, and since the past few weeks (summer shutdown), nobody is able to tell you if this engine will stay in this car or not. for record, this engine is on test since july and was decided before may...long time ago.

    The reason is the homologation process. you can see 992 being delayed for that reason and the rest of the range which is almost impossible to order except few cars...the decision is not from this team which is a pure petrolhead team but from above and the success and the cost to keep emotion against profit. we all know the answer...enjoy what you can see now, it is not sealed in the marble yet and this video doesn't guarantee you to see NA engine in 18 months.

    I can see the presentation already...''we wanted and we tested it but we were forced to go to another direction''Smiley

    So it seems that LA will be the intro (at earliest).

    No 992 appearance at Rennsport (935, Speedster) or Paris (Macan, Speedster Production) shows.
