    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    Grant:

    The Rumor du Jour is that the 992 RS is coming with only 4.0L and 530PS, but the redline will be raised to 9,500 rpm.  Not only will this sound amazing, but it lets Porsche lower the gearing (which in turn produces more torque multiplication in the gearbox for greater torque at the wheels, despite no real torque improvement at the motor).

    This would make sense for Porsche to do. Smiley

    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    nberry, most dealers are rubbish, I won't touch a car from the dealer here in cyprus anymore. I've never been treated so badly in my life.  Arrogant and Rude sales people who have been living off the Porsche brand without them having to do anything all.  Zero competition since they are the only game in town, which they think entitles them to behave the way they do.  It's become quite disgusting, and it's seems everyone I know here who has had an experience with them has only negative things to say.....  


    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    I couldn't agree more. In the old days when a valued customer walked into the dealership, the GM, sales manager and sales rep would go out of their way to greet you. Now they don't have time for you unless you're interested in buying one of the cars on the floor with a huge markup.

    What's funny is I get frequent emails from various sales reps at the dealership trying to sell me a car. Fat chance.

    I'm not sure if this really is a manual gear shift, since manual and PDK in the GT3 nearly look the same: Smiley

    Strange looking hood vents BTW. Smiley

    It’s PDK, it also has paddles on the steering wheel…

    Then the photos may be real, if that is the case it looks like a beast...

    The vents look strange but this is an optical illusion in the above picture.

    The spy photo below is more informative, I think

    I expect that the front hood channels will be active (to work in concert with the active rear wing)...

    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    As expected, a beauty it is not. Strangely our dealership today asked out of the blue if I wanted one, as I'm certainly not on the top of their list either they have no clue of their allocation yet, or there's less interest than they would've hoped? I'll wait until Wednesday as then apparently more info is released. I'd still much rather have that rumored ST but that'll be wishful thinking.

    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    Got a surprise call today from my former Porsche sales guy if I’m interested in the RS, even offering me a good trade in for the Huracan, decisions 🙄


    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    Those two cars are very different. If you really like to take your roadcars to the track, I suggest to switch to the RS, otherwise keep the Lambo and its glorious V10. The RS is becoming too extreme for road use imo.

    Changing market conditions.  I liked how there is no mention of how this car performs on the street, only on the track.  That written, this car is an amazing achievement for Porsche with the attendant technologies.  Oh, did I mention carbon fiber?

    Re: 992 GT3 RS

    Wish my dealer would call me about an allocation, but very little hope in the US of getting one it seems like.  Hopefully that will change over the manufacturing cycle, at least my sales guy said to be patient...

    I'd say it's very clear from that presentation that this is not a road car you can track, it's a track car you don't have to tow.

    Exactly. They never even mentioned the road. No more front boot. 

    They only talked about track. This car can be driven on the road but it is not made for that.  A big difference compared to the previous Gt3 RS's
