    Re: OFFICIAL: Porsche 911 (992) GT3 RS - 2022

    Seeing I am getting Bumblebee, my salesman decided to have some fun with me and got me a Porsche X Transformer hat, as seen in the goodies bag from the cabin pic.

    Car came with Goodyears and not Michelins, seems ok grip at that temperature. Better than the Dunlops I have on the 4RS which I picked up earlier in the year around the same temperature.

    the rear wing is so high and big that it doesn’t block vision.

    Standard suspension is a bit firmer than the 4RS, almost to the Sports setting on the 4RS I reckoned. Definitely borderline for street driving. Even with sofa seats. The car ride so well on track however, I still remembered the hot lap at Laguna Seca few months back. That was on buckets however.

    Steering effort is surprisingly light! I spent plenty of time driving a 992 turbo S around Europe, and this is definitely lighter. Seems a tad quicker too, 

    Car feels going slower than it really is. I thought I was cruising 50-60km/hr but in fact I am closer to 70km/hr. 
     

    And I already banged my shoulder against the wing walking around it, Last time I did that was walking around the GT2RS, this wing is higher and bigger. 
     

    Counting the incoming Dakar, I would have gone 6 Porsches in a row without getting one in black. And only 1 out of the last 9 was black. Gold, blue, black, white, silver, pink, purple, yellow and green. Amazing feat I would say.

    Congratulations. No leather. You stayed basic with this one. No need if it will be intended as a track beater. I hope I misunderstood about the sofas … not in this 3RS ?!

    Congrats, Nick. Smiley

    You look sooooo happy. Smiley Smiley

    Whoopsy:

    the rear wing is so high and big that it doesn’t block vision.

    Nick,

    Congratulations on taking delivery of  you long-awaited beast.  The high rear wing position is a real plus.

    I put aftermarket wing risers on my 991.1 GT3RS, 991.2 GT2RS and GT4RS in order to see behind me.

    P.S.  Did you order your Dakar in Meissen blue?

    Yes. Sofas in this 3RS. We can’t have cage here in North America so no point in getting the buckets as I can’t fit 6 pt in the first place. With regular seatbelts the 18 way sofa holds me tighter than the buckets with the side and leg bolsters all the way in.

    The dash, remember the sales manager episode? I took off the Weissach package to chop their profit on the car in the resulting pissing match. So it was supposed to be Race-Tex but now just rubber. Fine for me and will be fine for the next owner, easier to clean the dust off than the Race-Tex. On track with windows down, the dash accumulate so much crab it’s unreal.

    Haha you are so much taller than me we have different viewing angle when seatedSmiley

    As for the Dakar, no I ended up without PTS, so it will be straight shade green. Had I insisted on PTS likely I still won’t have a firm production date, now I am picking car up Feb 23rd.

    I have not tried the sofas on the 992 but I see your point. Still strange to imagine the 3RS without buckets. The biggest + would indeed be the 6 points more than the side hold. I am looking forward for more of your street and track impressions.

    Congrats, awesome car. Looking forward to hearing your impressions of the car on road and track.

    Re: OFFICIAL: Porsche 911 (992) GT3 RS - 2022

    Suspension is definitely bumpy firm on the street in normal, not the jarring level of the GT2RS but I would say close. Engine feels tight, 'sticky', not as 'free flowing'. Yes it's brand new, but I don't remember my 992 GT3 engine being like this when new. Should loosen up as it ages. Outside of that, it really is just another 911 🤣

    Fun with this car will be at least waiting till April. Cold and mostly wet from now till then.

    Planning the Dakar trip with my son at the moment however. Going to be winter still so I don't think I can take him to the Ring for a lap...... Also no one still at Porsche can confirm whether the all terrain tire on the Dakar are 4 season or winter rated and whether they will fit proper winter tires to my car at delivery🙄

    Re: OFFICIAL: Porsche 911 (992) GT3 RS - 2022

    Unfortunately not winter rated: https://www.pirelli.com/tyres/en-gb/car/catalogue/product/scorpion-all-terrain-plus/295_40-r20


    Re: OFFICIAL: Porsche 911 (992) GT3 RS - 2022

    Ah is that the tire for the Dakar? 

    Weird that Pirelli listed it with snow traction and I believe it has the 3 peak mountain symbol though.

    LOL nvm.

    The whole size range is winter rated except the 2 sizes that's used by the Dakar. The one above is fitment for my Jeep Wrangler. 

    I am guessing Porsche requested special rubber compound but kept the tread pattern.

    This is what one needs for winter on the Dakar.

    I have a set mounted to mine right now.  Maybe it will actually snow sometime this year?

    Re: OFFICIAL: Porsche 911 (992) GT3 RS - 2022

    Thanks Mike!

    Thanks probably going to be the set Porsche will put on my Dakar. I was hoping the A/T tires on the Dakar is winter rated so I can decline the winter tires from Porsche for my euro delivery, that way it gives me flexibility as to where I can drop off the car after my trip. With their loaner winter tires I will need to drop it back at Zuffenhausen.
