    Great to see more footage of the 992 GT3 Touring model testing...  1552170150971image.gif 

    1559072132123image.jpeg

    ...with a 4.0 litre naturally-aspirated flat six engine and manual gearbox... Smiley

    ...it does indeed look like they are testing a wider front and rear track!

    surely not touring....


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    Is it me, or is the rear wing different than on the standard 992? Looks a bit better for one reason or another.

    same same

    never had a gt car

    got a targa 991.1 with uprated engine

    driven the 992s this week and impressive as it is, nowhere near enough of an event for me


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    Given 992's more muscular and sporty proportions and contours, the GT3 version is going to look amazing in 992 form.

    could be testing mechanical grip set up - before aero add on's (with 992 basic body)

    It is the RS. Very very wide, just hope it will not look cartoonish. heart

    Not a GT3 RS with the retractable wing.  Maybe 50th Anniversary Carrera RS (but I would expect fixed ducktail spoiler for that).  Why do people think this is not a GT3 Touring - that seems possible to me...

    Same muted sound.

    I might have read it wrong but I thought Porsche made a comment of the roof being some sort of sound deadener in the speedster?

    I am talking about the exhaust note you will get. Speedster has indeed some sound deadner while the car is open top but what you get from top closed is not as loud as current 991.2

    I am hopefully stepping up from 991.1 targa uprated engine so hopefully an incredible upgrade


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    that will be a very interesting step up kiss

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    Times are changing.  991.2 RS gets regularly banned from tracks because of too loud stock exhaust. This included the Riing. When I was there quite a few cars had to have extra silencers fitted on their exhaust as to be sure to comply with the sound mesures. 

    Loud exhaust are not tolerated anymore. Even on tracks. 

    This 992 does not sound too bad at all. Less loud but still a nice type of growl.

    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    I don't need to be the loudest guy in town, its character I'm after

    I drove the 991.1 gts which had character and I just loved the way the engine opened up between 3-4000 revs.

    that's what I am looking for and Porsche I am sure from the motorsport division will improve on the 991.2 ?


    Re: 992 GT3 Touring...

    .2 is louder than .1

    .1 has a zing noise along the rev band when .2 has a piston noise

    2 different experiences, both great. .2 is better. No question.

    991.2 or 992?

    sorry for being stupid

    991.2

    there is no final 992 GT3 yet...

    super curious if 992 will be better than 991.2 

    time will tell......

    It should be faster around the Nordschleife and have a better motor (hopefully NA with ITB's and at least 20hp more than 991.2 GT3).  I also think they will have a much improved tire monitoring system (possibly from the technology shown in the Michelin Connect with sensors in the tire tread and dash display of temp and pressure), wider track, larger wheels/tires, and better aero.

    The rest is speculation...
