    And running two models in parallel has happen before .  They could still continue to produce GT3.2 ( RS ) once the Carrera 992 is out 

    Thats another point... Smiley

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Thierry, there is a "Launch" over the web planned as far as I understand before Geneva  - but I have seen the car in Weissach Motorsport Dept live in black and rest assured that it looks awesome and even comes as Manual  - front looks more stylish than Mk1 and back pretty much the same as Mk1 except for the 3D lights. Interior like Mk2 991 with the new PCM etc but with a new alcantara steering wheel without the Buttons etc - in sum of it's new parts a very very beautiful car. Technically I cannot tell you anything except that it had the same gearlever than the R....


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Thierry :  the link worked this morning. But now not anymore. Strange. 

    Basicslly the guy was saying that he saw all different variants of the GT3 last prototypes and that includes manuals , and no wing.

    He removed the info: He said that Porsche been testing all kinds of variants but he didn't know when the final product(s) will be.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Since some Swedes claimed they got a build slot for their 991.2 GT3 I asked my dealer about that and he said that it is not possible to spec a car as of today.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Here's the key post from RL:

    "When I left in September we still had a myriad of PVS ("Produktionsvorserie" = Second to last prototypes before the "0-Serie") cars of the GT3 and they had everything...
    Manual
    Manual without wing (!)
    PDK-S
    3,8l engine
    4,0l engine 
    ....

    Even the "standard" engineers at my department did not know for sure what options they would offer in the end.
    At one point it was "GT3 standard = Manual w/o wing" and the Clubsport package would include the wing and PDK-S

    I think they killed the Non-Wing version though, but I wouldn't put my money on it.

    4,2l engine what I read somewhere is bogus. Not possible with that engine block "safely".

    I'd guess that they put the 4,0l engine from the RS with ~490hp (or even the same as RS/R with 500hp) in it."

     


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Was the typical 4.0l engine actually 4 liters, or was it 3.98 or something like that? Given taxes on engine size, and China having a 4.0 cut off for the next bracket, I imagine they'd want under 4l.

    991 GT3 RS is 3,996 cc

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    That is very weird.  I think this is just an example of the specs being rounded off.  4cc is very small difference (0.1%)...

    RSR Lists the dimensions as:

    Stroke 81.5 mm
    Bore 102 mm  

    And GT3 RS has same:

    I did the math with the above figures and came to 3.995757 Liters...

    looks genuine......except maybe the stripes


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    angel Shocker. Looks like... a 911.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    Major lulz if the press photos include 911 R stripes.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I would be surprised if this is an official photo. The first looks very similar to a 991.1 GT3 press photo. Other than that there are unreadable watermark on the upper right corner, which is typical for PS jobs...

    Nevertheless, for me it's 96℅ accurate:)

    indecision

    I am trying hard to get excited. Virtually identical to and marginally quicker than its predecessor. One of the most predictable model launches this year. Surely it will be an awesome car, but it is getting a bit boring. Bring on something new and fresh.

    welll, i tend to agree with you but then it can't be a 911:::)))

    gimmie a cayman GT4RS with PDK and the 500hp RS engine and i shall totally forget the GT3RS

    Well, if it comes with 4.0L motor that doesn't explode into flames, a manual gearbox, and a modest price increase then that's enough for me to be excited Smiley

    Those photos show a .1 wing.  The mules with the 991.2 door handles show a taller wing. I expect the wing to be slightly taller
