    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    This car is calling for some nice stripes, otherwise it looks dull.

    MT only and no rear seats, can't say it is surprising, just very disappointing...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    bobr:

    RC - The pictures we saw today of the touring edition shows a manual transmission. Based upon those pictures, I assume manual is available.

    There were different discussions about this, don't know for sure what decision they took. The 911R owners concern was certainly a point in these discussions.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    I already have copy of official press release. Few German car webzines already posted it this morning with pictures. Porsche asked them to remove it till 12:00h tomorrow.

    Touring package is manual only. No uncharge. Leather black interior. No rear seats.

    If true, this would be...how to put it...more than dumb. Smiley
    Are you sure you aren't confusing it with the rumored 911T?

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Well, here we go: 

    Price is 152416 EUR in Germany (incl. 19% VAT). GT3 with wing costs the same.

    I have no interior pics and unfortunately...it really seems that this car is going to be available with a manual transmission only.

    Oh boy, this just doesn't make sense. Maybe we are lucky and get a PDK in a couple of months. angry

    Thanks RC....Do we know if 18 way seats will be available as an option in the configurator. I haven't heard about a 911T, but wouldn't Cayman fill that role?

    Cayman sells pretty badly as far as I heard... 

    Not sure about the seats, options will be very similar to GT3.

    On a regular 911, it shows a lack of options picked, but on a GT3, it shows that Porsche made a design mistake by deciding to go with that center console in the first place. The 997 looks better from that perspective.

    This car is now intended for spirited road driving and not really for the track .

    Because of the missing rear wing? Smiley

    Because of  :

    No rear wing 

    No club sport 

    Leather inside only 

    Silver trims around window 

    No PDK 

    This has has now a different philosophy . It is a sports car meant for spirited driving on the road , and you can of course use it on track . But it is not the same as a GT3 anymore .  This car is a GTS , or was the GTS should really be .

    It will be interesting to see how this different philosophy translates into real world numbers around the Ring Smiley

    Yes, if it had the rear seats this would have been a great GTS Smiley

    looks great in black. 

    hopefully they will release more colours too. 

    and HOPEFULLY they will let us (non-Touring orders) delete the seat stripe in the configurator.

    Too late for me (my car will finish production this week).  Maybe I should buy a shirt with this GT3 Stripe, so people will still see it when I'm sitting there Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Christian,

    Porsche expects around 80% of all manual 991.2 GT3 will be ordered with Touring Package. This is what for them is the key reason for offering manual only with Touring Package. On the other hand over 75% of potential 991.2 GT3 with PDK-S potential buyers want their GT3 with Bucket seats and full fixed rear wing. Expectations are for EU.

    BTW, there is an Exterior Touring Package in Black option for those that do not like chrome.

    Also, seats are combination of leather and fabric(black stoff). Kind of cheap IMHO.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    - Press Release -

    Porsche GT model with manual transmission now also without rear wing

    911 GT3 with Touring Package celebrates its world premiere at the IAA

    (11 September 2017)

    Stuttgart. New addition to the Porsche puristic vehicles: The 911 GT3 with Touring Package will be unveiled at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA), which takes place from September 12 to 24, 2017 in Frankfurt. It is available exclusively with a manual six-gear transmission, and instead of the fixed rear wing it has a variable rear spoiler like the 911 Carrera. Beneath its understated exterior is pure motorsport technology: The four-litre naturally aspirated engine taken from motorsport reaches 368 kW (500 hp) and generates a torque of 460 Nm. In combination with optimum gear changes, the 911 GT3 with Touring Package sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds to reach a top speed of 316 km/h.

    The name “Touring Package” harks back to an equipment variant of the 911 Carrera RS from model year 1973. Even then, the puristic 911 design and classic interior fea- tures were a key element. The new 911 GT3 with Touring Package adopts and mod- ernises this concept. This variant is aimed at fans of high-quality sports cars who par- ticularly value an understated appearance and classic driving enjoyment.

    Aside from the Clubsport Package and Alcantara equipment ranges, virtually all 911 GT3 options are also available from Porsche in combination with the Touring Package. They include features such as all exterior and wheel colours, the PCCB ceramic brake, the lift system, LED headlights, all seat variants, the Chrono Package and the audio systems.

    The Touring Package option is available to order now. In Germany, the 911 GT3 with Touring package costs – like the 911 GT3 – EUR 152,416 including VAT and with country-specific equipment options.

    A high-performance sports car in every respect

    With the exception of the rear, the body of the GT3 remains unchanged in the variant with Touring Package. This means it has large air intakes in the specially designed front end, as well as the air outlet that is typical of the 911 GT3 model, located in front of the luggage compartment lid. The front and rear lights are identical, though not dark- tinted. The appearance from the side of the vehicle is dominated by the forged alloy wheels with central locking. At the front, 245/35 ZR 20 tyres are fitted on nine-inch wheels, while at the rear 305/30 ZR 20 tyres are mounted on twelve-inch wheel rims. The tyres create a powerful impression as the body of the new variant is 44 millimetres wider at the wheel arches than the 911 Carrera. Lowering by an additional 25 millime- tres further emphasises the width of the car.

    Sporty aerodynamics: Rear spoiler with additional tear-off edge

    The subtle structural features are first visible at the rear end. The spoiler wing of the extending rear spoiler from the series-production 911 is equipped with an aerodynamic tear-off edge (Gurney flap) in the vehicle body colour. The specially designed rear lid grille bears the “GT3 touring” logo. Other distinguishing features include the silver-col- oured side window strips, sports exhaust system tailpipes and headlight washer sys- tem covers, as well as the Porsche logo at the rear. In the “Black Exterior Touring Package” equipment option, these elements are in black, as with the 911 GT3. The front and rear lights are dark-tinted.

    Leather interior

    The interior creates the feel of a classic sports car with manual transmission. In line with the character of a puristic GT, fine leather is prevalent rather than Alcantara. The steering wheel rim with twelve o'clock marker, shift lever, door panel armrests, centre console storage compartment lid and interior door handles are upholstered in smooth-finish leather. The seat centres are made of black fabric. The headrests feature em- bossed Porsche crests and all seams in the partial leather interior are sewn in black thread. The finishing touch to the interior is the trim in black aluminium.

    Powerful six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from motorsport

    The powertrain and chassis are identical on all 911 GT3 vehicles with manual trans- mission, including the variant with Touring Package. The naturally aspirated six-cylin- der flat engine with four-litre displacement is taken from racing cars such as the 911 RSR and 911 GT3 Cup. The machine is the most powerful naturally aspirated direct- injection engine and has the greatest displacement that Porsche has ever developed for a six-cylinder flat engine on the road. The engine is characterised by its high-speed concept. The crankshaft spins at up to 9,000 revolutions per minute, which is truly extraordinary, even for a sports car engine.

    The gear ratio of the six gears is precisely tuned to the power development of the engine and offers particularly sporty shifting characteristics. An automatic intermediate acceleration function ensures an exciting sound when downshifting. This function is activated via the “Sport” button on the centre console, delivering dynamic shift pro- cesses from faster synchronisation of the gears. The GT sports manual transmission transfers the power to a mechanical rear differential lock with automatic braking (PTV).

    Fast on the corners, stable on the straights: Rigid chassis with rear-axle steering

    The chassis of the 911 GT3 is testament to Porsche's experience in motorsport. In addition to the basic design, which is optimised for precision, the chassis also boasts superior handling characteristics, thanks predominantly to the active rear-axle steer- ing. Depending on the speed, it steers either in the opposite or the same direction as the front wheels, thereby improving the vehicle’s agility and stability. The size of the tyres on both axles is such that the front wheels optimally transmit steering and brake forces, while the rear wheels provide drive and traction.

    Porsche Track Precision app as standard

    In addition to Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including an online navi- gation module with real-time traffic information, the standard equipment of every 911 GT3 also includes the Connect Plus module and the Porsche Track Precision app. This app enables the driver to display, record and analyse detailed driving data on their smartphone.
