A very good idea but so poorly implemented.
its easy to
miss because often you have a bunch of messages to “click away” so you really have to take your time to to that.
but when the pressures fall below 26PSI you STILL get the low pressure warnings! Even in circuit mode.

Quite honestly, I didn't care for the "marbles in a can" sounds that the .1 made. Sounded like sh*t was always broken.

Then you must really hate the Mezgers. I love the mechanical sounds. Part of the character of these cars. Taking that away neuters their character and charm just a bit imho.

Porsche always wants at least 2 tire vendors per vehicle. I bet they’ll have Michelin and Dunlop both...

I loved every little sound my .1 made, it makes you feel connected, I drove many sport cars that were way too quite and felt like luxury sedans.

When I drove this past summer in a friend's GT4 Clubsport, I was tempted to consider that route as well. That was a race car (haven't driven in a cup car to compare), but awesome sounds. I may have to start ripping $h-t out of my .2 to hear more sounds.

I guess Giuseppe beat me to it.

I'm #1 on the list at my local dealer and feel confident....why would they make 6000 .1RS (sorry Waxer) and limit the regular .2RS....only time they limited was with the 997 4.0, but even the regular 997 RS wasn't limited, was it?
Kf: if you got that information from wiki you are merely following the urban myth. That wiki information was likely sourced right here from Rennlist where that 6000 figure was bantered about substantially Without foundation or any basis whatsoever. Comically the outside world looks to this forum for accurate and authoritative information which many times is not so accurate or authoritative. Porsche never published Final production numbers on the .1RS.

however if you scour the various threads dealing with this issue you do come up with real information including data posted by Loess and together with what we know as the original intended production figure of 1500 worldwide, when the first production tronch ended, when continued production was announced, actual production window and production capabilities.

Crunching actual numbers worldwide production is around 3000. Give or take.

Only 1500 in U.S.

I prefer less fake mechanical noises. I don’t like rattles and random noises. It reminds me of driving a 360 Modena and comparing it to a 458. The 360 always felt and sounded like it was going to fall apart. If I want more noise I’ll just throw on some dundon race headers or an IPE exhaust. That is real noise. Not just noise panels or an engine that literally blows up. Give me a .2 GT3 in manual over random noises any day. The engagement with a manual will surpass any random noises.

Dr: I think you may be confusing fake exhaust sound piped into the cabin with mechanical engine sounds. I know of no way mechanical sounds can be faked.

+1 for mechanical sounds. Hope the .2 gt3rs has more than the .1. My LFA you can literally hear every cog moving in every mechanical part as long as you are below 6000 rpm. After that the exhaust fully takes over until a gear change. Makes it feel special to me

I'm not in the 'noise camp'... sorry been racing cars all my life... I don't want to hear noises that shouldn't be there. Go drive a Nissan GTR if you want to heaar a noisy DCT...

I couldn't be happier with my new GT3 6spd, super responsive, solid and incredible 'communication' from the manual, to the wheel, and the rear wheels.

Let's make sure the only noises are those you're supposed to hear, ie tires slipping out, engine revving etc... I don't need a noisy gearbox, or rear end whine.

The 997's and older all have their places, but evolution must move forward... says the guy who purchased a new manual.

Best Regards,
Dave
