Really love the look of new 3RS all around. I think it's my fav looking 991.

The.1's and 2rs looked a little bit too boxy for me.

It looks like something is covered up on the side air intakes. There appear to be several horizontal lines on the black intake ducts? You can see it on the green car pictures as well. Also, it looks like the central rear brake light is much wider on the .2.

Do you mean covered up by snow?

It's in front of the snow. Maybe they just haven't put the plastic or carbon cover on yet.

Saw that as well. I hope it,s covered up by tape and not the end result "some kind of side defuser"

Honestly guys, when it comes to CF, Porsche aren't even fast followers.........................
LOL. excellent.
i been saying this long ago
as everyone is so fascinated with CF on p cars.
there are some REAL CF out there. but not on porsche body panels.

LOL, you should start ur comedy club ;-)

So it's better to avoid this layer in general and then paint it. This is the case in the high end cycle industry where light weight is even more important. You do see race cars with exposed non-pretty carbon occasionally and I actually prefer it. Didn't lambo do one recently and had people whinging about finish?
and not just any paint. some paint are significantly lighter.....
CF is great, but it's not great EVERYWHERE.
the drop link and anti roll bar in CF... very sexy. but i am not sure that's CF's real strength is fully utilized.

while i am sure PAG engineers are smart bunch, i have a real question.
CF is weak on headon impact (say rock hitting hood for example, could lead to hairline crack, penetration crack etc). if canyon carving, a rock pops up and hit ur antiroll bar. that would be $ to replace no? i had such failure on chain stay of CF bikes. chainstay's position relative to pavement is similar to car's antiroll bar. a bike is moving at 40-50mph down hill. i am sure RS goes faster than that. i just deont want to keep paying for new sway bars....

That just looks like a piece of hard plastic trim with the air strakes molded in for the duct closeout similar to the GT2RS. Probably have carbon fiber or painted available as a regular or exclusive option.

I wonder if the bar is a full carbon bar or a carbon bar with an aluminum insert for strength. My 3rd grade level engineering mind has a hard time believing carbon can hold up to the torsional twisting a sway bar endures in its lifetime.

you are an arsehole. but sometimes funny. and i guess correct if speaking against in this case.

5,5kg the drop links and anti roll bars do safe. i guess full carbon.





someone has pictures of the stabis? roll bar and links. how well they are covered in terms of packaging? how do they look ‚used‘? in my garage its too cold. peter mooty you have it warm. ��
