    That is a fantastic spec. Also the irony of your GT3 being parked amongst all those state troopers, it's hilarious.

    W8MM:

    Just back from showing the GT3 T at the Cincinnati Concours:

    IMG_2997.jpeg

    It only has 46 miles on the odometer, but I did take through "dead man's curve" on the trip home from the dealer.  The curve is posted at 30 MPH, but most Porsche drivers take it at 60-70 MPH.  I am quite familiar with this curve and have passed through it hundreds of times over the decades.

    In all my previous GT3RS, GT2RS, there was always some playing around with the steering as the car "took a set" and subsequently delivered the required grip.  Any historic 911 pilot knows the feeling.  They all made it without too much drama, but there was always some slightly imperfect turn-in with which to deal.

    The 992 GT3T (and I assume GT3) front suspension makes it feel like a front-engined car.  The car turns in with no initial hesitation or imprecision.  It's absolutely phenomenal.  I had heard it was "a little better" on turn-in, but I was not prepared to be blown away by the difference.  To me, the difference is not subtle.  It's major.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. wink

    I havent so far really warmed up with the 992 Touring due to the lower part of the front painted in body color. Yours looks great though, darker color and the contrasting wheels are an elegant and still sporty combo. Wishing you many great miles and memories with your Touring.

    Re: 992 GT3

    Had an interesting experience at the Keeneland Concours this weekend with my GT3.  When the judges asked me to open up the car so they could judge the interior the driver's side window cracked...not the best of timing.  I had alerted the dealership a couple weeks ago that the gap between the door window and smaller side window was too close and was hitting when the window lowered to open the door.  Based on rennlist this seems to be a very common problem, not impressed and of course the window is back ordered until sometime in August.

    Needless to say that and a bit of rubber I missed left over from a track day meant I didn't win my class

    Re: 992 GT3

    For those who find the ride quality of the 992 GT3 a bit too firm, I found the following Performance Tire Pressures in the Owners Manual which being much lower than the Standard pressure should also bring much more comfort (as well as better performance under 290 kph or 180 mph):

    perf tire press 992.JPG

    The Bar to PSI conversion was not done very well, so here are more accurate numbers here:

    Performance and Comfort (max speed 180 mph):
    Front: 27.56 psi or 1.90 Bar
    Rear: 30.46 psi or 2.10 Bar


    Regular Pressure (and for speed above 180 mph):
    Front: 31.91 psi or 2.20 Bar
    Rear: 34.81 psi or 2.40 Bar

    Re: 992 GT3

    Hi Grant. Thanks for that. Ive been meaning to post on this for a while.

    My dealer set the pressures to 32/35. I found the car very stiff. I looked on the door jam and questioned them. They said it wasnt clear. To be fair its rather confusing. Unlike the 991 gen which has one setting only this car has two. They spoke with Germany. Only sustained autobahn speeds are 32/35. But almost every dealer is letting them out the door with these pressures.

    Lowing the pressure made a huge difference to comfort and complaince for me on our roads.

    However once we dialed in max negative camber (-2.4 F&R) I found I needed more air in tires or else it tramlined. So now I run something like 29/33. Funny that. Just like the 991/981!

    Its very miss leading as they call 32/35 "standard tire pressure" and 27/30 "performance". It has everyone doing the opposite of what they meant and no doubt is partly to blame for folks saying the car is too firm on the road etc.

    Re: 992 GT3

    apparently it also depends of if you got it on Michelin or Pirelli's. To me the roll-noise of the Pirellis is much worse than the Michelin's. Always preferred them.

    Porsche been doing that for a while. Even my 918 is the same. The 'performance' pressure is lower. 

     

    Another thing is, the higher pressure gives a slightly better fuel economy as it has less rolling resistance.

    Yes, this was my conclusion as well (the reason Standard pressure is so high compared to 991).  I also think this is reason 0W40 is only approved oil since Model Year 2022 (slightly better fuel economy).

    Re: 992 GT3

    Also, consider filling your tires with nitrogen to get all the moisture out of the tire. With nitrogen the tire pressure is much more stable.

    “Debut for the newest generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 R”  E0F26BDD-E91B-4EF4-964B-7C4204B9E420.gif

    30.07.2022 | Stuttgart | Motorsports | Press Release

    Newly developed customer sport race car for GT3 series around the world

    Porsche 911 GT3 R, Generation 992

    • New 911 GT3 R ready to race from the start of the 2023 season
    • More power, sophisticated aerodynamics and optimised balance
    • Conceptual influences from the 911 GT3 Cup and 911 RSR

    The new Porsche 911 GT3 R will be unveiled to the public at this year’s 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. From the 2023 season, Porsche customer teams can campaign the new racing vehicle in worldwide motorsport events that adhere to the GT3 regulations. The vehicle is based on the latest 992-generation 911. Compared to its predecessor, the new 911 GT3 R features a larger engine producing up to 416 kW (565 PS), a more constant aerodynamic performance and an optimised vehicle balance.

    Stuttgart. With the latest generation of the 911 GT3 R, Porsche unveils a new customer racing car. The new challenger for GT3 series around the world is based on the current 992 generation and will be ready to race at the beginning of the 2023 season. Development began in 2019. Priority was given to further improving the driveability for professionals and so-called gentleman drivers, as well as tapping larger performance reserves for different Balance of Performance (BoP) classifications. Another focus was on streamlining the handling of the race car for the teams and reducing the running costs. Porsche Motorsport now offers the new 911 GT3 R at a price of 511,000 Euros plus country-specific VAT and optional extras.

    “The new 911 GT3 R has big shoes to fill,” says Michael Dreiser, Sales Director at Porsche Motorsport. “Its forerunner has won almost everything there is to win in the GT3 scene in four seasons since 2019. Its stand-out successes include overall victories at the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and also here at Spa-Francorchamps. Raced by our customers, the predecessor scored class victories at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. The new model faces a massive workload in the hands of the Porsche customer racing teams.” 

    After the GT3 class was announced as a professional category in the North American IMSA series, the FIA WEC World Endurance Championship follows suit: From 2024, GT3 racing cars such as the new 911 GT3 R will be eligible to take part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time.

    “We hit the bull’s eye with the enormously successful predecessor. Accordingly, the bar for its successor is high,” emphasises Sebastian Golz, 911 GT3 R Project Manager at Porsche Motorsport. “Our task was less about making the new 911 GT3 R even faster – the classification within performance windows set by the BoP quickly cancels out this advantage. For us, it was primarily about our customers being able to drive the racing car fast for longer. This requires durability and that’s why we focused predominantly on improved driveability. This is reflected in the new 4.2-litre engine’s broader usable rev band, more stable and constant aerodynamics and lower loads on the rear tyres, which allow their potential to last longer.”

    At the core of the new racing car is the near-standard engine based on the 992-generation 911 power plant. Like in the previous model, it is a water-cooled flat-six engine with four-valve technology and direct fuel injection. The main new development is the displacement: like the 911 RSR, the capacity of the new 911 GT3 R has increased by a good five per cent from 3,997 to 4,194 cc. This has boosted the engine’s peak output to around 416 kW (565 PS). First and foremost, however, Porsche has optimised the torque and power curve across the entire rev range. Consequently, the new 4.2-litre six-cylinder is better suited to gentleman drivers.


    The high-revving six-cylinder manages without turbocharging and sits in the classic rear position, thus enhancing traction and braking. However, it has been tilted forwards by 5.5 degrees, creating more leeway for the underbody diffuser. Auxiliary units such as the alternator and the air conditioning compressor were moved a good metre forward and further down into a space in front of the engine and gearbox, which has a positive effect on the weight balance of the 911 GT3 R. The sequential six-speed contest-mesh gearbox is derived from the current 911 GT3 Cup. Shift paddles control an electronic shift drum actuator that enables particularly rapid and precise gear changes.

    The new 911 GT3 R’s suspension – many details of which have been modified – supports driveability, allows more precise steering, ensures less wear on the rear tyres and reduces the time spent on set-up changes. For this, numerous components and technical solutions were taken from the 911 RSR. At the front axle, a state-of-the-art double wishbone layout controls the wheels. The rear axle sports a multi-link design. The KW shock absorbers were further improved and offer five adjustment settings. Set-up modifications are done with so-called shims. These plates enable precision adjustments without the need for the time-consuming re-alignment of the suspension afterwards.

    The optimised positioning of the central pivot points at the front axle frees up space for the aerodynamic “race underfloor” concept. Like in the 911 RSR, this elevated underbody allows for a clean flow of air to the rear diffuser and reduces the pitch sensitivity of the racing car – i.e. a high rake under braking. The rear wheels have moved a little further back, which extends the wheelbase from 2,459 to 2,507 millimetres. This also reduces the load on the rear tyres and improves the consistency of the tyres’ performance over longer stints. 

    In addition to the aluminium monobloc racing brake callipers, the brake discs on the new 911 GT3 R are now also supplied by the specialist company AP. The internally vented and slotted front steel discs measure 390 mm in diameter and are activated by six pistons. Fitted at the rear are four-piston callipers and discs measuring 370 mm. A sophisticated software application for the fifth-generation racing ABS reduces wear on the tyres and brakes. Porsche's traction control system also received a further development.

    The new 911 GT3 R is just the second racing car from Porsche Motorsport to be based on the current 992-generation 911 after the 911 GT3 Cup. Its lightweight body with an intelligent aluminium-steel composite design draws on the production model, albeit with major modifications for use in the 911 GT3 R. Almost all body components are made of lightweight carbon, including the front and rear lids, doors, side panels, rear wing and roof. The wheel arches are made of aramid fibres. 

    In a vehicle like the new 911 GT3 R, functionality stands at the forefront. Nevertheless, Grant Larson from Style Porsche again succeeded in creating particularly stunning and harmonious shapes. They accentuate the heritage of the nine-eleven and blend it with sophisticated efficiency. Most notably, this is reflected in the aerodynamics. The key points: an elevated underbody at the fore of the front axle, for the first time in conjunction with a smooth undertray, and a rear diffuser. This combination improves downforce without a significant increase in drag. The rear wing now features a swan-neck mount. This ensures a clean airflow under the wing and thus improves the aerodynamic efficiency of the component. 

    In terms of safety, the new 911 GT3 R follows an uncompromising approach. The seat has moved closer to the centre of the car. This enabled Porsche to optimally adapt the more ergonomic seat position to the improved roll cage and the newly developed FIA side impact protection. Like in the forerunner, the steering wheel and pedals can be adjusted longitudinally to suit the driver. Porsche specialists took another close look at the six-point safety harness: the tongues now slide even faster into the clasp via special ramps – saving about a second during pit stops for driver changes. The steering wheel design also received further upgrades on the previous model. It incorporates elements that have proven themselves in the latest generation 911 GT3 Cup and 911 RSR race cars. The 10.3-inch display, for example, comes from the successful one-make cup racer, with the multi-switch concept adopted from the Le Mans class winner.

    The high-performance LED headlights on the 911 GT3 R rely on so-called collimator technology, which Porsche developed for the new LMDh 963 prototype, among others. This device works like a magnifying glass, only in reverse. It illuminates a particularly large area of the racetrack and is a significant improvement on the predecessor model, which was previously regarded as the class leader.

    Yes.

    The higher pressure is only for safety on autobahn speed and better fuel economy.

    Thanks, Nick!  Consider me salivating.  You think 911ST will be the first to have it?

     

    I think Porsche would want to stress the engine under racing conditions first, finding weaknesses before letting ordinary people abuse it on the street.

    And keeps hydraulic steering too.  Pretty amazing car.  That engine will eventually make it into a road car, imo…

    Is the 4.2L they've been using for a couple years in the RSR too different to provide that kind of confidence?
