My cleaning ladies wouldn't give me much info, but the one thing they all said is PDK only.

think the tran. will be the last problem, seems to be veeeery limited and so tough to get one...in Italy number of allocations around 997 4.0 figures, don't know if representative of global allocations or due to any sort of penalization for our mkt

One dealer told me today that Sweden gets 15 units 991.2 GT3RS. (Could be right, could be wrong but I see it an indication that few will be built)

FWIW: Porsche tells their dealers (at least in Sweden) that the RS-cars are to be given out to people that actually uses the cars.
They want to see the cars on track and in traffic - not in garages or on Mobile.de.
I know that the last definitely is true - allocations has been withdrawn.


Basically Porsche want these cars and their drivers to be ambassadors for the brand.

The new spoiler and bottom bumper part make it look a bit top heavy in the rear. It makes the bottom rear look a bit narrow and not as aggressive. The front looks good though.

Except that Porsche doesn't sell cars directly to customers....I don't see them doing what Ford did for the GT which is really the only way to control it.....otherwise it will go as it always does.....dealers will sell cars to who they want

If I get one, I can promise you that it will be driven and tracked.

Not in Europe, at least not on my dealer. And all cars will be sold by list price.

I understand that this won't work on the US market but is seems to work over here. Of course there will always be exceptions here to but it is a good intention.

I have a .1 and a .2GT3. I will need to see specs and price before deciding. I think the .1 RS is just about perfect.

We have the same garage. I absolutely love my 991.1 GT3RS, the best car I have ever owned. Its darn near perfect in my eyes. I'm still coming to grips with my manual GT3.2- I was hoping 10 days of European Alpine driving would be the start of a similar great love affair, but sadly I was the first person to be hit with the ED snafu in early October, so my GT3 has not been driven as much as I would like. I hope that once the weather improves I will enjoy it too.

It will be interesting to see the specs on the new RS, because I will be put into a big dilemma about which car to get rid of. However if the incremental changes improve the RS even more, there is simply no way to pass on getting one! decisions decisions

Part of this hinges on whether I will even get an allocation for the .2RS. It's likely but not if my dealer only gets 2 or 3. We will see.

i wish this was true. If it was, I’d be guaranteed an allocation.

Any dealers want want to make this true? If so, send me a PM. In addition to an RS, I’ll buy my next Pano Turbo S and or fully loaded Cayenne Turbo from you. Yes, I’m giving myself a plug; getting desperate for an allocation.

Ford left many deserving faithful out in the cold in favor of celebrity chicks with guitars, fake wrestlers looking to flip and talking heads with social media following. Ask me how I know.
