Was at my dealer this morning finalizing paperwork for my .2 GT3, which is arriving Monday, and he told me new RS.2 info. should be out in a few weeks. Just what he told me, but he has been right on everything thus far.

4.0L or 4.2L engine? MSRP below $200k?

He is saying that he was told that the info will be available in a few weeks. I dont think he means he got any other info besides that

I'm expecting the GT3RS-2 will be a GT2RS Body, Suspension, Tires, Wheels and Aero with a normally aspirated 4.0 or 4.2 L Engine, PDK-S, and a $250K Base price.

Haha I know, I guess I'm just passing the teasing along Hope my SA won't tease me too much and give me a clear cut answer as to allocations, but we all know how that works. Until then I have my new GT3 arriving Monday and I plant to drive the wheels off of it.

RS wouldn’t be $110k, that’s GT2 RS price. Over gt3. $190k is upper limit

I'm really fascinated by the details of the new RS. My 2016 RS has been without a doubt my favorite car I've ever owned. I get first dibs on all GT cars at my dealer, assuming they are not limited to only 918 folks, so would love to get this new one. I just got my 2018 GT3 manual, so far not too thrilled with it. only a few hundred miles to date, but it feels much less mechanical then then my previous 991.1 GT3 in my opinion, not as loud and raucous as everyone claims- i'm wondering if these folks are driving a GT car for the first time! I know I know, but if I had to choose between my RS and my new GT3 its a no brainer at this point. I need to give it some more time to do the break in to get on the motor a bit, then perhaps I can be more judgmental. However, before doing a bunch of upgrades on my GT3 I will wait a few weeks to hear this information on the new RS. Thanks for the update!

Fairly sure the gen2 will have rose joints, like the GT2RS. And Weissach pack. 4.0 NA has been reliably tested at 600hp by Porsche, so see no case for a 4.2.

Also hope they have dealt with the issues of wheels hitting the arches on undulating tracks. And PLEASE get rid of all the warning messages (oil, tyre pressure, belt, outside temp,...). They're making me really jittery. :-)

Agree on this one! Tire pressure is the one that annoys me. It pops up all the time on track even when the pressures are up above minimums after a few laps!!!

The RS is special for sure but I think it’s tough to compare these two. I state that primarily due to the subjective nature of what one expects from the driving experience one is looking for.

I really liked my RS but the manual GT3 currently offers me the level of engagement that I love. Once the .2 RS is out I’ll also get it if an allocation comes my way.
