There really is no advantage to things like a Mag. roof on a Cup IMO - plus the 991's are required to have an escape hatch to extract a driver if need be by almost all series they run in currently. That design gets updated from time and time again as the rollcage design is updated from Motorsports.

Plus, the bodies get beat up over time and use - I believe what CJ was eluding to as well. Would be $$$ to replace Mag. roofs.

The cars are weighed every weekend 2-3x

No reason to put cheater parts on...if you finish 10th just get more coaching.

I think Geneve will be a different car not yet photo'd as widely with more of a dynamic launch planned for the RS...Goodwood, Rennsport etc.

The Speedster and/or SportClassic? With the .2GT frenzy the comments regarding such have died down. As we approach the 992 cycle it only makes sense for Porsche to begin pumping out a swath of special editions to bid farewell to this generation.

I hope the new GT4 and .2RS are released together in March. That would make for a fun 2019. I am selfishly awaiting to hear of Porsche Motorsports's plans for their GT3 & GT4 competition cars. I think significant change is in the works.

Off to find an MSRP allocation HA

Cheers

One of my cleaning ladies saw the car in the flesh late last year. He confirmed PDK only and a new green standard color offered but would not tell me whether it was going to be a 4.0L or a 4.2L.

Will they wait for the new GT4 until March 2019 or announce it late 2018?
