    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    100% sure that 'Start of Sale' is 11/09/17


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    If start of sale is 11/09/17 would we not expect the configurator to have the option listed prior to that date?  Such as within the next 7-10d?

    Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Pack confirmed for Frankfurt Auto Show...

    "Frankfurt will see the premiere of the GT3 Touring Pack. This stealth model combines the inconspicuous aerodynamics of the 911R with the engine and chassis of the 500-hp GT3. You can’t have PDK, but keep an eye out for the tasteful color and trim choices."

    "..tasteful colour and trim choices." - I like the sound of that indecision

    That'll annoy some R owners ('investors')!

    Shame it's manual only.

    Indeed a shame no PDK - much desired for canyon slamming.

    With the US GT3 delay, I wonder who else is thinking of changing their GT3 order to touring?Smiley 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    I suspect it'll unleash another avalanche of demand. Surely Porsche will capitalise on this and make more available? Would be madness not to IMO. Indeed why release a new variant if they're all already sold?? No-one would be able to buy it!

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Don't understand why no PDK but denying choice seems more important than offering it when it comes to Porsche GT cars.

    Agree does not make sense . The rumour could be false though .


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Offering a manual transmission in a 2017 sport car is borderline silly. NOT offering PDK is just denying customers what they really want. Thankfully Porsche is not the other player in town angry


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    PDK is efficient and boring, manual is inefficient and exciting...

    A choice would have been nice to see, but better manual than PDK in a road focused GT car.

    Manual is actually the more efficient (less power wasted as heat), but just so damn hard to manually shift as fast as PDK Smiley

    I am not surprised that the GT3 Touring Edition is a derivative of the R.  Looking forward to seeing the options so I can make a decision.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    For me, if I am paying money for a sports car, it better have a true dry sump motor. So that is why I looked at the GT3 instead of GTS at the time. Though with the current generation that line becomes fuzzy. So now the reason would be non turbo, so that would mean GT3 with touring pack instead of GTS. AJ

    The reason why the R was success is because they committed to selling only 911 of them and charged super car prices. People with money jump at the perceived exclusivity.

    Just because you think this car is stupid, don't let it color your prediction of the demand for such a car in the marketplace.  It is strong with very few alternatives now for those who like cars like this.

    The R at the auto show, white with red stripes, was the most beautiful 911 I saw in at least decade. That plus the fact that it was limited, makes the transmission choice totally irrelevant, and it was sold out anyway so Porsche could force whatever they wanted on their customer. They could have easily sold 5,000 to 7,000 R looking cars with PDK and rear seats, but then would would have bought an overpriced super high margin GTS or turbo?
