Renntech is working on fixing the brakes / brake cooling.

Plus I have a great relation already, only certain mechanics work on my CPO and old MB cars.
I'm not talking crap about the 2018RS, I will get a new one ASAP because I will run mine out of warranty soon enough, but if I cant get one, I'm stoked about the AMG plan B offerings. The GT R is priced around a GT3, so the Black series should be around the RS pricing.

Looked at one my local dealer had. MSRP was $209k, dealer ordered car, so it was all loaded up. Including lane assist and stop/go cruise control with collusion avoidance. They seem to be shooting for a different clientele. The green is a $10k option.

Sure, fantastic car like the GT3 but it troubles me that they're limited by tire/wheel choice (brakes/off set/ RAS). MPSC2 or Trofeo R (at least over here). Personally, I believe Porsche need to address this and develop more wheel tire combos. They are fine if you are doing "track fun" or with in class racing with supp regs controlling tires but if you're in open class, its something else altogether.

Many drank the I bought a car to look at vs enjoy - it's been the theme for Ferrari owners and it's caught on to the RS.

Fact is if someone bought at msrp and feather dusted it - they are correct. It comes down to how many .2RS will be produced - simply look at history feather dusted RS in PTS is way above todays RS.1

GT2RS 4.0 - many others valued above todays comparison at msrp. and then move to the R even further above.

Comes down to supply and demand - RS demand is bigger than production then add in the collectors. All comes down to production below 1000 expect huge ADM.

Could not be further than the truth - that may be your base thought but it's not others.

RS value is based on it's competition - it's half the price and 90% as good of the competition and great looking with the best ergonomics around.

If I was wrong and you were right - their would not be ADM today on the .1RS ... maybe you should wake up if it's not the last it's damn close which if you read the owners posts it reflects they are more than fine with their .1RS.

So... the Carrera GT wasn’t a “road-going” Porsche model now? Or did we just forget about that one?

beware of this kind of assistance.
some close the windows if going sideways.
some doing weired stuff during lane changes as soon activated and not using the indicator (but ok we are not BMW drivers )
auto braking if tailgating
...

Mercedes are good in it - if it comes down to limit the possibility of deactivation of all the nannies.

to be precise:
around 100 out of 230 offered .1RS are listed below MSRP at mobile.de (80% German offers)
some of them 20k€ below. meaning as soon arriving with cash money: 25-30k€ below.
this is a normal expansive ownership for a new car within its first and second year.
still a lot of $ per mile - when just doing 1.000km with it.
this are hot deals i have to say if you search now a drivers car.
this 230 offered units - will double as soon .2GT3RS arrives.
so i guess even better times will come for .1RS buyers.

But the hood on the 991.1 GT3 RS is carbon.
Is the hood on 991.2 GT3 RS metal as standard and carbon with WP?
