    GT3 rumors ... more details

    First at all: the pictures floating around at this time on certain websites are not showing the final GT3. The aerokit will look different.
    The all new GT3 is rumored to be delivered to customers around august 2003, it will get a completely overworked 3.8 l engine (based on the "classic" engine design as the former GT3) and a gearbox oil cooler.
    Weight seems to be remain the same as on the "old" GT3 but don't expect a lower weight.
    Price tag is rumored at around 100000 EUR which makes the new GT3 much more expensive than the "old" one.
    With the introduction of a 3.8 l engine, it can't be excluded that the 996 Turbo / GT2 engine getw an upgrade for MY 2005 which is probably the first MY of the all new 996 (997).

    As always: these are rumors, nothing official.

    Re: GT3 rumors ... more details

    Cool news RC. I got 2 questions regarding that.
    1) Will the new GT3 be available in the U.S.? (the street legal version of course)
    2) Will the future C4 S adopt the 3.8L engine or not?

    Cheers

    Re: GT3 rumors ... more details

    Ron, I was sure you'll ask.
    As far as I know, the all new GT3 will be available to the US market but the price tag might not be a pleasant surprise for US customers. Something between the C4 S and 996 Turbo.
    The GT3 engine has nothing in common with the current 996 engine. I can't completely exclude that Porsche will raise capacity from 3.6 to 3.8 on the 996 but it surely won't get the GT3 engine. I guess this is a question of cost.
    As an all new 996 (997 ?) is due around MY 2005 (summer 2004), I actually doubt a displacement increase from 3.6 to 3.8. Maybe the last production year gets the powerkit as standard but I guess this is most people can hope for.

    Again: the 996 engine (C2, C4, C4 S and Targa) has nothing in common with the future GT3 or GT2/996 Turbo engine.
    Ask your dealer about the replacement cost of a 996 engine and the one of a 996 Turbo engine and you'll be shocked.

    Thanks RC Informative as usual, you da man
