    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    cay981:

    Hello all!

    I'm new, currently based in Singapore. I have been lurking in this forum since last Oct, after placing a deposit on the 991.2 GT3.

    Just wanted to say I have thoroughly enjoyed the banter around here!

    Could anyone assure me this is Carmine Red, and not Guards Red?

    Thanks in advance!

     Strong opinions, successful and intelligent people...quite fun to read. Smiley Smiley

    Welcome and congrats. The 991.2 GT3 is certainly a fantastic choice. Smiley

    Gnil - thanks for your input, I wish I could ask Porsche directly !!!

    RC - thanks for the warm welcome : )

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    On the video it really looks like carmin red but like others have said you can't say for certain because color can change significantly on photo/video, however if you asked because you want that color in the video, then you want carmin red because that's how carmin red looks in real life and guards red looks a lot lighter just like grant's picture he posted.

    Yes, thanks! The side profile really brings out the orange in guards red...

    Carlos, so glad you chimed in because that's exactly what I wanted to hear Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Yesterday evening I have seen the new GT3 with touring option (no wing) - the funny part I was with someone from inside walking and eating an ice in Stuttgart. I said to him, that the GT3 touring option was cancelled and he confirmed that but then he said they have changed their mind "once again".  

    So we have for now confirmed (99%):

    911 t - with turbo engine - stripped down 991.2

    991.2 GT3 without wing

    991.2 GT3 RS

    991.2 GT2 RS

    Also heard that in 992 regardless of which model there will not be any hybrid technology - this was planned, too. They have changed their mind - maybe they will change it again.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    991.2 GT3 RS has no definitive green light yet, decision will be taken soon, also based on GT3 sales. 

    992 Turbo hybrid development is still going on, so... yes Maybe to make sure they don't fall behind? I don't have a clue but it is still in development

    991.2 T may be that special edition model but rumors indicate that it is actually based on the 991.2 Turbo S.

    Touring package for GT3 has green light but I still struggle with finding out what it contains. Very likely wing-less option though, rear seats unlikely.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Quite interesting,

    why option not available from day 1 ?

    it could frustrate some buyers like me.And also bring a lot of confusion with adding more options on the way.

    i would love two seats in the gt3 to bring the kid with .....

    but with the wing ! A GT3 without wing ...... is not a gt3.....

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Does a touring option impact suspension as well? Or is it as 'hardcore' as a non-touring GT3?

    It is Porsche like to have  so many variants but seemingly not Porsche like to have so much apparent confusion (I don't really buy that) about to launch or not to launch and in what order after the 1.2 GT3. That does not seem accurate... Think we are confused, the dealers are just as much so...

    I'll take a 1.2 RS touring version which includes manual and optional rear seats.

    These rumor are insane. Porsche can't fill all the .2GT3 orders and yet they are going to produce a different iteration of the GT3? mail

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Agree that a GT3 without a wing is not a GT3.  Call it something else. 

    Brand dilution IMO.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    If memory serves Ferry Porsche's 73 2.7 RS was sans ducktail, light green metallic, and debadged per his request.Two other family RS were sportomatic.  Porsche understands that customers want different flavors and are willing to pay for the privilege.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    They should offer a GT3 Touring with ducktail and a GT3 Touring RS without wing. Sometimes I feel Porsche is dropping the ball in the cow-milking game. indecision


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Sun queried his dealer, we'll see if auto tail/no fixed wing is really available.  Since Porsche Aus/NZ wouldn't let him delete the lifts, somehow we doubt it.

    How much more does the R wing weigh than the fixed wing?


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    nice April fools joke that fooled everyone, very well done
