    Stick a set of Cup2 on it and it will most likely match the GT3 and maybe GT3 RS too.

    Which is why we can be confident that the 991.2 GT3 is going to have to be significantly faster than 991.1 GT3 (and why NA motors may be endangered in GT cars as well).  Also, remember that the powerkit and turbocharged GTS with ~450hp is coming soon too...

    They should drop the GT... cars, no need form them anymore when you go actually faster in a Turbo and maybe at par in a Carrera S with the same tires .Smiley  The turbo engines with their massive torque do wonders in the Carrera , add the RWS  , PDCC and you get a car more efficient then a ' real ' sports car . 

    Will Porsche have to ditch the NA now in the GT.. cars ?

    HvS Supertest from AZ.

    7:36min Ring time

    1:09,5min Klein Kurs Hockenheim

    Different test example then the car used by CG for SA. But, same options.

    So, new 991.2 CS is pretty fast. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    It is a fast car (so is the 991.1 as well...), don't have a clue why some car journalists call it a GT. yes

    They should compare it to the Maserati Grandturismo, the Jaguar F-type, the BMW 6 series or the Mercedes SL/S Coupe, not to the AMG GT.

    New 991.2 CS or C4S equipped with some drive dynamic goodies is a proper sportscar. Yes, expensive it is. But, at the same time 991.2 CS is with similar tires as capable on he track as Mclaren 570S. A car that most people rave about here on rennteam.

    I think people just got bored with the same design and interior...time for Porsche to revamp the 911.

    Hmm, 570S is much lighter, has 150hp more, and has better steering.  991.2 may be as good at some things, but not at all of them and I bet doesn't feel the same (I have not driven 570S, so just speculating).

    The classic 911 shape should stay but I would try to offer a more modern interpretation of the classic 911 interior, incl. some sort of virtual cockpit similar to the new Audi models.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Though I would love to see a change, as long as the 911 is selling at a brisk pace don't expect any dramatic changes. Right now all the action is with the GT models. Hell, they put two stripes on the R, increased its HP, priced it at $200,000 and Porschephiles are going gaga over it. Go figure.heart

    It looks like the generation will indeed have a virtual cockpit, or almost so. The central tach remains, but large LCD screens on either side of it.

    it is a fact, orde has been placed...

    a 911.2 c2 with lots of options it will be !

    GT silver on the outside and Agatha grey on the inside. 

    Oh, I will collect in Zuffenhausen on August 30 indecision  

    (Any suggestion from our German members about what to visit ?)

    Big thanks to all of you for the support and suggestions!

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Choosing colors has not been an easy thing...

    gt silver on itself is a great color,the agatha grey is somewhat less great 

    what would combine the gt silver with? 

    Regarding the lock date... No clue!

    how soon does the dealer know this? I bought the car in Germany as no availability in Belgium on short term. (Better price also 😀)


    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Cool, congrats!
    When pocking it uo, be sure to visit the Porsche museum and also the Mercedes museum, both must be very good.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 2016 Porsche 911 [991.2]

    Once he gets a commission number he should give you the particulars. Once locked (it means the factory will  not accept any changes in the order) the car is usually built within two weeks to three weeks.

    Regarding color, about 35% of all Porsche's on the road today are silver. Personally, I would opt for a more exciting and distinguishing exterior color. You're buying a sport car and not a naval ship.

    But if you're stuck with silver, play with the configurator. A blue or black interior would work well. Porsche has new interior color I believe graphite and blue (?) you might want to check.
