    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Are the cars being delivered next year with the particulate filter 20 ps less? I heard that rumor. Can anyone with a confirmed allocation for a car next year confirm or deny what if any impact there is?

    And apparently, no filter for US cars?  Will they make more power than RoW or be detuned to be equal?  BMW makes US cars without filter and with more hp...

    How much more does this filter weigh?

    Porsche will use a 4 way cat?

    7.5kg on new 992...I expect the same on current 991.

    I have no clue but it is my understanding that power stays the same.

    Thanks RC, will be interesting to see how this plays out for all models coming next year that are potentially using the 4.0 engine. Got my heart set on a 718 spyder to replace my Boxster S if the car is naturally aspirated once again. If not, I’ll keep the Boxster S with its glorious sounding 3.4. Just hope that if everything comes together the filter doesn’t try too hard in muting the noise.

    Any idea how successful the Alpine is so far?  (Sales-wise...)  Is it hard to get, or are there lots of them in dealers?

    When I did my test drive last summer, waiting list was one year . I can't say I see many around , just once and a while, but , according to the dealer at the time, orders were above plans . I f recall correctly , was about 3000 cars

    Interesting- I did see that they announced all 1955 Premiere editions are now built (and sold), and production moves to a cheaper base version plus a more optioned one.  Too bad Renault is a big zero in NA, I’d love to use an A110 on studded tires as a winter fun car...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    The Premiere Edition are sold here at a premium by the speculators . 

    The A110 on studded tires on your snow covered roads must be the best thing one can imagine . Not too much power, small car, very light and agile , perfect weight balance .

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Here's an interesting car that was at my dealer.  I asked if it was a Weissach car awaiting magnesium wheels and the guys there said no just a normal car.  Some how without optioning it, the customer got the carbon fiber hood (non-painted).  Strange mistake considering some US Weissach cars got shipped with the painted hoods because they didn't have enough carbon fiber hoods...They double checked the spec sheet in the system and no mention of the hood anywhere.

    Oh and if anyone is interested they have a beautifully spec'd GT3 touring they offered me.  Not in the market at the moment (thanks Apple price drop), and I have a physical injury that makes driving a manual difficult so obviously passed.  A customer had this on order when at the last second they got him a GT2RS allocation.  They found out he was going to flip it and they let him know that they wouldn't sell him any more cars and Porsche would put him on a no sale list if he did so.  Not sure if that's true, but they are a MSRP dealer.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Hey that GT3 doesn’t have a rear spoiler? Is that how they are coming in the US? The GT3 that come in the Middle East have a fixed rear spoiler like the RS but smaller 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Touring package option has no fixed wing

    That GT3 looks awesome but man... with that missing wing there must be a nice rebate. Smiley

    The GT2 bonnet always comes in cf, only the Weissach package features the painted middle stripe.

    My bad, I clearly didn’t sleep enough... that is weird indeed.  The bonnet on the non-Weissach cars would be cf anyhow, albeit not visible. From my memory the Weissach cars that had been delivered incomplete were equipped with aluminium ones altogether.

    No, they came with the standard RS bonnet , carbon but painted .

    So all that hassle for some visual carbon... Quite surprising that they can finish enough cf bonnets in time but not the visible layer on top.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    yes, indeed . All that for the last shiny layer ...... at least we have now 2 bonnets , and they are worth a fortune ..... nearly pays for the whole WP indecision
