    Kobalt:

    Sorry guys - I think the car is gone. Bummer.  Didn't even do a launch control in it. 1500km's then gone.

    This is what happens when you follow the break in procedure.

    I pardon the pun. (The thieves also followed the break-in procedure)

    something tells me the car has done nothing but launch control starts for the last few days and the rev limits are out the window.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    In all seriousness ( yes I can be ), it would not be the same if you did get it back now..

    They eff up the ownership if it was returned, for me it would anyway.

    You certainly have kept your chin up though and we all hope you get another somehow.

    Keep us posted kiss...

    Keeping up the serious note. Can we really start that petition to Porsche asking for another allocation? Seems so unfair that this is happening and there's no way you can end up enjoying the car.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Think it is to late -  I don't believe they are allowed to build more for the EU after 1 of September.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Sad about your car .  Lesson learned , drive the car as you stole it , right from delivery  angry

    I agree with Throt . Maybe it s better it is now gone , because if you would get it back , you probably would never feel so confident with the car anymore , not knowing how the engine got treated ..... probably max rev with cold engine surprise

    I hope you get all your money back from the insurance ... and that by the beginning of next season you have a new ride .

    Drive it like you stole it - I liked that. :-)

    Thank you all - you all makes the misery go away.

    In all this bad there is good: Doing my first VLN this Saturday in a BMw 325 V4.

    Yes, I’m very nervous.

    My kids have no problem whatsoever fitting in the bak seat of my Bentley GT (& its a coupe), they are 16 & 9. In the Porsche 911 turbo S, the son (older) doesn't fit & the daughter fits but she always says "Daddy lets take the Bentley" Smiley

    on top of it - nowhere mentioned - is that in race-mode the Ford is probably illegal like the P1......


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Maybe tires. Think of GTR and GT2 Cup2 ZP Tires.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I'm thinking the same, the ultra sticky tires of the GT2 and GTR would be a significant advantage. Don't know what tires the other two had.

    He said all cars used Cup2. Not sure if it was standard Cup2 or specific ones like ZP/R etc.

    I did never understand this statement, who cares? yes

    Wuld definitely be interesting to see the chosen tires.

    see above.....but who cares indecision

    I like the new Ford GT a lot (engine choice maybe not that much), it sounds alright, it looks very good, it has street presence and performance is pretty good (yes, I think the tires gave the GT2 RS a significant advantage) but Ford is just nuts if they think this car is worth more than 200k. Seriously.

    The limited production may have given the Ford GT some sort of positive reputation but let's be real here, it isn't worth the money Ford is asking. Not even close.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    In the video they went out of their way to explain the perceived poor performance of the Ford. In short, they stated the car was not designed for the track it was tested on. The 2RS had the highest hp and was expected to have the best time. Had it not, that would have been the story.

    FWIW, I would take the Ford over the 2RS in a heart beat.

    Other relatively quick cars are the Audi TT RS and the Honda Accord, which was faster at several points than the Audi RS3.  While the Audi is a couple of seconds slower than the Cayman GTS it remains a more all season usable car than the Porsche and it has the handicap of a compromised platform of the Golf, not a mid engine performance platform.  For all around high performance daily driving it is a hard package to beat.
