WP only after sep18 with the particulate filter would be rather entertaining it has to be said to see if people would rather the WP or without the filter!
That would be a tough decision especially if the filter affects the sound.

The wheels on the pictured model are from a regular GT3 i think. I could use my GT3 winter wheels on the new RS, all i need is an allocation.

looking sharp. Incorporated GT2’s wider sills, more pronounced front fender vents, and revised uprights. New endplates tha bridge the gap between old 3 RS and New 2RS.

Logic? I'd say YES.
Doubt it. When the 997 4.0 was released to the public the Porsche Motorsports department was also starting to race a 4.0L motor in the RSR and GT3R racecars. I believe this was push over of technology from the race department. With all of the current Porsche Motorsports cars offering 4.0L motors as the maximum displacement I doubt we will see a 4.2L.

Right
I would check the new front brakes cooling
you never know the heat they could get while driving on the snow

Saffron Yellow Metallic is very cool color. You might have to go with CXX on that one as I thought that is allotted for Turbo S model for now.

I believe they check how long it takes for heated seats to reach optimum *** temp after cold start.

Saffron looks like a nice yellow.

What is is it about the 3RS that makes everyone want crazy colours? I don’t get it... lizard, ruby, acid green, UV, Lava... there are more people after loud colours for an RS than even Lambos. Don’t get it. Is it to make the car stand out more?

I am genuinely asking the question because many people I know that love Porsche’s like them because they are more understated.
