    Indeed indecision Using it in this setting only would be aberrant , unless they have many Starbucks around indecision  . Hopefully  he does  only to keep it as a low profile going to work and on the week ends he puts the wing back and takes it to Yas Marina !

    This running joke never gets old... Smiley Smiley

    Actually, I think the GT3 RS and the GT2 RS look perfect with the wing (and I'm not really a fan of cars with wings but if these wings are technically necessary, they actually make sense). The wing is part of the original design of the car. Why would someone remove it? Makes no sense. I get the idea of the GT3 touring but this is an original concept and design, not just someone removing parts from a GT3. Smiley

    what is the concept of castrated GT3? touring is non sense...it is same chassis and setup as the wingy...no difference in whatsoever part. placebo feeling that you have an R?

    where are the exotics parts then?

    PAG is laughing all the way...

    Sometimes, in certain regions and for certain occasions, a GT3 Touring makes a lot of sense. Why would this engine/tech be used on the track only? Smiley If Porsche would offer the same 500 hp in a Carrera with a Biturbo charged engine and the GT3 brake system/chassis, why not? So be it. Why would Porsche install this tech in a"track" car only? Smiley So yes, a GT3 Touring makes sense but not enough I'm afraid. With rear seats and PDK, this car would be perfect.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    well just give him another name than GT3...and we can agree. but GT3...is wingy.

    they did so many variants with the 911 flavors...no need to dilute a specific niche. what will be the name for 992 - GT3 cab? because you know it is coming, aren't you?

    Actually, I'm not so sure the discussed 992 GT3 Cab is coming, heard contradicting information a couple of weeks ago. If it comes, I just hope they name it differently. Would really hurt the GT model "brand", I agree.

    50th Anniversary of the 73 Carrera RS is coming soon (~3 years).  Not sure they want to upstage the commemoration model by having a ducktail before then...

    The Touring is indistinguishable form the base 911. Woman wouldn't notice the car especially if its parked next to a proper GT Porsche. The wing is the phallic symbol which gets their attention.Smiley

    They may be more rare but I would prefer the one woman who is able to notice a Touring next to its winged brother, than the dime a dozen women who don't, much less be attracted to it for the wrong reasons...

    Couldn't agree more. Even if I own the winged version, I much rather date a girl that's embarrassed by a winged Porsche than one that's proud to show off in one.

    My wife is the same. She'd be too ashamed to get in a GT3(RS or not) because of the wing but at the same time finds the base carrera too boring and prefers the turbo over it... even though the Turbo has also a wing and holes on the side... go figure Smiley

    And if she could afford it, a 458/488 spider would be her choice... but wait for it... in yellow !  All of it does not make any sense to me. A black GT3 would be a no go but a yellow Ferrari would be ok Smiley

    My wife thinks the wings belong to a track only and when she sees one driven on street she laughs, calls the poor guy a poser trying to look like a "race car driver".

    Loves the Lusso and 812 but not the 488.

    He promised a review and some pics of his new M5 but never delivered, postponed it a couple of times and wasn't able (or willing?) to provide even a crappy cell phone pic. Smiley 

    I agree, we should give him more time but I think he is one of the rare users who had various cars in a very short period of time without ever posting a single pic of one. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    The touring is an amazing proposition from Porsche...... I've always wanted a GTS with a GT3 engine and I am glad that I had the opportunity to get one. Donno why some care what it's called or that a GT3 should always have a wing..... If the wing doesn't make a difference until you drive it is driven 200+km/h and it is a road car, for many owners they will never get to drive it at such speeds on public roads and many don't track them, then the wing is unnecessary yes and imo they look better without it.
