    Sounds surprisingly muscular, given that it will be equipped with OPF.

    I think so too.  I wonder if the mules are representative of the final product (hope so)

     

    In its current, therefore almost final stage, I’d be surprised if the engine note will still change. When the 991 prototype‘s where driving around Stuttgart, I was surprised about the sound and loudness of the exhaust. As we all know, that had been carried over to the production car back then.

    the sound is now muted. 991 was type certified in 2013 and .2 in 2017...2 certifications happened in between. GT3rs.3 with GPF as well as speedster are already really muted. loud is no more the norm.

    What I am saying is, that the 991 prototypes driving around back then displayed the character and level of the exhaust sound as subsequently featured in serial production trim. The GT3 mules driving around now seem to do the same, and I am surprised how good they sound.

    Maybe they are US non OPF versions.

    The front looks so clean, but the rear...angry so busy

    btw is this an "active" rear diffusor? It looks as if the fins could move sideways.

    This time I think the wing version will look better. This rear screams for a wing if you ask me.

    In this video at around 3:40 you can see the GT3 without the matte bonnet:

    I can’t believe this is the finished look. I look forward to seeing the release and sure we will all be a bit surprised

    Must be because Touring is perceived as emasculated or girly?

    I would love to own a girly Touring. Smiley

    Looks to my eye that the outer diffuser fins aim the exhausting flow toward the outside of each side.  A "spreader" type diffuser.

    Love these wheels. I was told they don't fit over (my) ceramics. Must inquire again.


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    Front just doesnt feel finished. The lower air duct looks so plastic??


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    I can't believe they are going to go with the standard rear deck grill on the touring, and not one with a sportier design heart

    In this pic the car looks incredibly chubby and fat.

    And what’s worse, it’s a black car! A lighter color will increase the fatness even more.

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    I think the photo angle (lens) is to blame. Stretch it a little, and it looks a bit better,

    2 things I absolutely dislike about the next gen GT3 (or all 992 for that matter):

    • the rear (that stripe, the higher bum, the "pause" brake lights)
    • the interior (digital tachometer, which is also flawed)

    On the Winged GT3 that "pause" brake light will be gone and one can option the wide rear tail light in clear instead of Red (hides it pretty well on certain colors).  Check pics of new Turbo S to see examples...

    Not a big fan of digital instruments either, but the Tachometer is the only one dial they left as analog Smiley

    Fully agree. Would of been nice to have the small duck spoiler that sits under the GT3 wing

    I've watched this video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QI9j4FMSnGA and he mentions something funny.

    The "pause" 3rd brake lights (which I said I disliked) also look like the number 11. Now go ahead and count the bars next to the lights! indecision kiss

    Yeah, I remember reading about that when that design was first released - kinda cute explanation, but still looks weird Smiley
