    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    911 GT3 Touring sounds a bit different to a Carrera T...

    ...thanks to a 4.0 litre naturally aspirated Porsche Motorsport engine that's a work of art! Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    TBH the T doesn't sound bad at all. I was expecting a much bigger difference, given the title.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    To me, it didn't sound like they ever took the GT3 T to redline (or even close).  At least there was never a need to upshift...

    The turbo engine sounds pretty oldschool aircooled 911, I like it!

    Yeah, it did sound pretty nice.  And I've yet to drive any of the new 3.0TT motors, but the base model in the T is supposedly the most responsive (drives most like NA).

    It sounded the same as my .2 Targa with sport exhaust. Meh.enlightened

    Nick - are you tempted to put an aftermarket exhaust on the GT3 or are you happy with stock?

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    I am keeping stock on my gt3. Don’t feel the need for an aftermarket exhaust. Well not right now at least indecision

    In case anyone likes to perform their own oil changes on the new .2 GT3, I made a little thread about this (and found a change that was not yet realized by one of the largest Porsche parts places in the US).  X-post from another site (don't know if this is kosher):

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3 (2017)

    Grant, I’ve listened to a couple and I haven’t found them to be better than OEM. I am fairly certain I will stay with the original exhaust.

    I almost got a rear muffler bypass, but then also decided to stay stock (at least for the moment).

    Yikes!  It's around 50F today (was colder/snowy earlier in the week though).

    In sunny isles Miami.  Back to the 13f cold Saturday. Can’t wait to take the gt3 out again. At 1200 miles. Painful.

    Yes. Really nice write up. Who doesn’t have a wobble extension?  ­čśÄ this is how you tell a real Porsche owner.  One note though - I prefer sunset Porsche over suncoast. Better prices.

    The green should have had the bronze wheels of the RS in the photo below it... black somehow works against this colour.  (invites black wheel fan club to flame.... smiley
