    997 GT3 RS 4.0

    This seems to be the final product:

      www.news.de/auto/855164801/die-weisse-jungfrau/1/

     

     The article claims the following:

    - 500hp

    - NBR lap time 7.27

    - 0-100kph in 3.9s

    - 0-200kph in 12s

    - "Weight" 1360kg (corresponding figure for GT2 RS: 1370kg)

    - Only available in white

    - German price 178k incl. 19% VAT (lower than expected)


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Obviously, looks good !!!.. But it has too much tunning in my opinion, too much stickers...the price seems much lower than i expected... I really want to listen an exhaust video!!!

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Thanks, seems to be correct. Official press release is said to be in two days [April, 28th].


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    I'm not convinced...

    That steering wheel, really? 


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Wow...

    7:27 sounds pretty impressive, but is it worth the tacky stickers?!? Even the little spoiler in front of the front wheels seems to be a sticker!!! 

    The price is way lower than what we heard before... that is interesting to say the least. Maybe the beancounters did finally realize that there is a limit to what people are prepared to pay...

     That's true. Also the number of cars to be sold is slightly higher than expected (600 vs 500). Maybe the delayed presentation has to do something with Porsche finding the right "market clearing price" Smiley


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    One more thing that's interesting: according to the article they want to build 600 cars. Isn't that a bit too much? 

    About the rest of the car: base price seems interesting, but we should remember that this is without the PCCB obviously. So we should rather speak of 190k. Still cheaper than expected. Don't like the stickers BTW, looks ridiculous. Just tear them off, plain white is perfect for this car.

    I don't think the stickers will be a problem to have them removed. But the size of the rear wing will be a real embarrassment if the car is used outside a circuit.

    What is the time for the normal GT3 RS?

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Is the rear wing seriously such a big difference to the "normal" GT3 RS? Both cars look more appropriate on a mountain road or racetrack than on a supermarket´s parkinglot.

    Specs and pictures have circulated the web for quite some time now, only their somewhat official status is new. Should the Mezger engine be discontinued on the 991 model, this 4litre version is certainly a collector´s item.

    I am not sure whether an offical NBR lap time does exist for the GT3 RS (old). However, as Sportauto published a 7.33 I would expect that the RS 4.0 is only marginally faster. Maybe 3s on the NBR (pure speculation) Smiley

    Maybe Porsche finally found out that most Porsche track drivers (the place where this beast belongs) replace the PCCB by cast discs anyway ? Smiley

    As for the looks I prefer to wait for the official photos.

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    hmmmm sounds like a beast! Price is good too, Im not sure why people are crying..

    The stickers can be removed, but these pics seem like a very fresh and potent track toy. A true collector if you ask me.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    only one pedal :D

    What's wrong with the steering wheel?  I have the same on my GTS, albeit in leather, and it's superb!

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

     Hmmm.... Bordello-red roofliner. It seems the gaudiness of today's Porsche knows no limit. And this is supposed to be the most serious, most performance oriented offering...

    At least the gauges save the day, with their clean faces and clear business-like font.

    Seriously, I hope these red elements in the cabin can be optioned out.

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    What is this thread doing under "Other Sports Cars" ? Is this no longer considered a Porsche?...or a 911? It looks exactly the same so I think it is safe to call it one.1303881996371duck.gif

    Nothing wrong with that steering wheel at all. Just find it very unlikely that it would be offered for the RS 4.0. Should've chosen my words more carefully.

    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Love it BIIIG Time  what a car.....eventhough the interior and the red is a bit over the top - specially the roof....but have to see it in real life.


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    No PCCB?  I doubt a lightweight car like this won't come with PCCB, or at least the promo shots would!


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    No PCCB as standard I guess. See first official pics, red callipers. Smiley

     Would some considerate Mod be so kind as to move this threat to the correct board please?


    Re: GT3 RS 4.0

    Interesting that the street car has more HP than the GT3 RSR....thought not surprising since the race car is forced to run "intake restrictors" per class rules.

    Yeah, I think without restrictors the motor is good for ~600hp.  The street version likely loses ~100hp by using a more mild cam, lower redline, more restrictive exhaust, lower octane fuel (compression is lower?), and I doubt the street car keeps the RSR's 6 Individual Throttle Bodies (but it would be awesome if it did).
