    I am most delighted to announce that I am alive and well. Everyone's concern in this matter is truly touching and emotional. Such a reaction is however for little girls, so there is no need to feel lost or insecure; I have not grown up, become serious nor more humble. 

    Yours sincerely, a proud ECOTY15 owner Smiley

     

    I'm glad that it is you that are using your Rennteam account again, it was weird for a while - Welcome back!

    A few months ago, I heard a rumor about a facelifted 400 hp GT4 but lately, nothing. 

    When you heard that rumor, was it with NA motor or turbo (4ycl or 6cyl)?

    Porsche marketing might leverage on this for the next 718 GT4  (unless the GT4 moniker will stand for the number of cylinders Smiley).

    Oh no, if they start using this naming strategy then I may end up with a 3-cylinder GT car Smiley

    What is the point? You can shift manually with PDK-S as well. Just to shift via H pattern? 

    My opinion is that manual fans like that third paddle more then anything.

    9000 RPM was a marketing limit and came with some issues. I doubt many will care too much about 200 RPM more, I don't, when the new one has a 4.0l with 500HP based on the previous RS.

    Sequential manual - perfected for street driving.  I am with you.  Clutch only for coming to a stop.  Launch control or manual clutch release.  After that clutch is optional when shifting gears.  It would basically be a cheap reliable version of the racing transmission.  Yes it would be expensive but we would be getting something for our money.


    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    If they could have made of version of the Cup's sequential that was cheap, reliable, and had good road manners, they never would have bothered with creating PDK...

    I drove Cup cars before, I think I do like that transmission! But without the great whine for the street.

    Car will be shown in Geneva early March 2017 (still Winter).  I would expect orders following immediately thereafter.  Deposits should be placed now (or sooner).

    Nick, maybe you're referring to RS?

    You are correct, nick is looking at a RS.. Which really does surprise me as he off loaded his 991GT3..Maybe nick knows its the last of the N/A  Smiley Smiley...

    I also consider the GT cars quite hard core for guys of our age ( 50yrs + ) . Is our nick around that Smiley... Sorry to be nosey, Nick..Smiley...

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I was thinking about getting the next GT3.2 or maybe even the GT3RS but with the GTS Cab in the garage, another 911 didn't really make sense. My choice to get the R8 V10 Plus was not a choice against the GT3, just an alternative as a weekend toy fun car to replace my beloved GT500.

    Re: 991.2 GT3 Thread Closed

    I suspect that RS will be offloaded quickly if Nick decides to get it. A street legal race car which has a roof and never sees the track will not be much fun in the long run in sunny California.
