    It’s NOT about the weight, as I’d said above the car’s character hardly matches this particular (luxurious) spec. Especially on a Porsche, a creme interior brings it more towards a GT than a track car. Obviously, there are people that appreciate this “clash” and others dislike it.

    Congrats and good choice!

    reginos:

    I think you could turn a Bentley GT into a super-sportscar and still be acceptable but not a Porsche GT into a Bentley-style without being OTP.

    BTW the best GT2 RS scheme was the introduction car i.e. GT SIlver with champagne coloured  wheels and Black/red interior.. Very Porsche.


    Interesting statement. To me, the only luxury car that looks convincing in a sporty outfit is the Bentley Conti/Flying Spur, isn’t it?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I cant really help you which one to choose, but can definitely tell you which one NOT to choose. That is 9ff. Although they certainly have some impressive performance numbers, workmanship quality and especially service if you ever have any issue is below any decency. Worst company ever. And I know that from my own experience. And there are many others with similar experience.

    I happened across the live stream of the Fanatec GT2 series that was at Monza during the F1 weekend, it was sad to see there is only 1 Porsche GT2RS CS in the field. SRO created the whole series around that ONE car. 

    Between the GT2RS CS and the 935, Porsche made 207 eligible cars to be in it, ONE SINGLE car is in the field. ONE. 

    The rest? All got locked up somewhere hiding away from the public because of the perceived 'collectibility' of the 'rare' car.

    To think Porsche had already screened buyers of the car. There is something seriously wrong with the screening.

    Yes this is sad.

    They should have sold you a 935 so I can get a ride from you.Smiley

    Some are used in the cup series. At least in the Swiss one, in the open series, there was one being used. Not the 935. 
    that still leaves a lot of them hidden in garages.

    Yeah that's Benno's car in the Swiss Cup series. Good friend of mine. Don't think there is one running in the German series however.

    The only other race where more than one of those are running was the group delivery race at Spa. 

    Come to think of it, Porsche didn't actually sold out the 200 GT2RS CS before. There was a few left that they were shopping around with. All gone now.

    I thought Marina still runs the GT4 and Benno runs the GT2RSCS with a buddy🤔

    Most probably. Last year I did not go to any Swiss Cup events, but in 2019 she was indeed doing the GT4 series.
