    Leawood911:

    Local dealer actually has a .2 White manual with steel brakes for sale. Of course it has 500 miles and way over list. Now that the 992 will still have NA .2 markups are just not acceptable.  I’m still on the GT3 list but it is rolling over to the 992. By the time I’m 70 maybe. Lol. 

    They do have a new building and friendly enthusiast staff so there is hope for them at last  

    BTW big surprise, the GT2 RS in the showroom belongs to the dealership owner. 

    Mike, I suspect that's temporary. Under Porsche rules he must hold the car for six months before selling for surely far above MSRP.

    If the white manual ticks all your boxes, make them an offer. Doesn't cost you anything. If they still insist above MSRP and its not too bad, strike a deal with them. You buy GT3 and they promise you a 992GT3 at MSRP. Think out of the box.Smiley

    Saw this gorgeous PTS Touring in a dark blue, presumably Meerblau? Looked brilliant with the silver details.

    ^^ will take your word for it - trying to capture a subtle dark colour in a photo taken in the deep shade of winter... not easy.

    Yea Oslo. Sorry I have been gone. We decided to move. It took all summer to sell. Then we moved in the Fall. Then my mother in law became ill with breast cancer and finally passed away Saturday, then I turned 60 today.

    Sorry to hear about your loss Smiley, my condolences.

    After rain comes sunshine, this has always been my motto, especially since my father passed away three years ago and I ended up with a shitload of (non-related) problems in the same year, had the feeling that I ran out of luck.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Thanks Guys. I think with friends like I have here I will always have some good luck. 

    Anyone read the Porsche Emag last week about the guy who went to the track and the GT3 and the RS?

    He mentions how the 7 extra torque in the RS really separates the two cars.  I have never been able to tell

    such small differences in torque or HP.

     

    I also have a cousin whos was a Naval Academy grad, and my most closest mentor to my engineering career,

    who has prostrate cancer. Geesh what a year! 62 and in home hospice at Annapolis.

    Yeah, especially if you compare Manual GT3 to RS, the Manual may even have more torque to the wheels (as the wet clutches in PDK consume more additional torque than that)...

    Some pics recently taken during a Sunday drive in the neighboring Alps. The car is still brilliant, use it mainly as a weekend/fun toy, carving through the Alps, having now covered more than 12k kilometers, no issues, only fun.

    Very beautiful car Mike. In flesh it is even nicer and more froggy 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Have been enjoying the Frog recently in the Dolomites which were always on my driving bucket list. And theydid not disappoint, if you like mountain curving it‘s a fantastic place, one day we drove 10 different passes, starting at 7 am in the morning, returning 3pm in the afternoon. Next ride took us 8 hours around, having a blast again. Both tours were together with my friend taking his Speedster out. Both cars were huge fun, I also drove the Speedster extensively. The open top experience is hard to beat, the OPF muted sound less so. It has become much quieter than the Touring, the pop and bangs during no lift shifts almost non existent, below 3500 rpm unresponsive but top end on the other hand very free spinning. In terms of driving feel it felt more planted but less aggressive and playful than my Touring, the Speedster on Dunlops and my Touring on the Cup 2. I also have the Manthey settings with reduced camber compared to thir track focussed settings as I only use the car on the road. Steering feels felt only different by nuances. 

    My car has now 20‘000km and I still love it, nothing to complain. Recently added ceramic coating making it easier to clean, had to replace the front screen after the high speed runs on the German Autobahn and hubs had to be regreased as I had a ticking noise on thight, hard driven right handers. I cannot see anything to replace it with, size, sound, driving feel and looks are perfect for me.

    Regarding your text: " hubs had to be regreased as I had a ticking noise on thight, hard driven right handers ".

    I have the same noise on my Touring in right curves during very hard alpine pass driving - but my OPC didn´t have a solution to this problem. Do you have more technical info about this for me - who suggested the regreasing of the hubs?

    Thanks for your helpSmiley

    Do you happen to have the Manthey alignment specs (their track ones and/or the ones you use)?  Thanks
