Then there will be a frenzy (assuming economy remains strong) when run GT3s is coming to an end

Same thought. Assumed "small" HP bump.
Any new aero or specs on weight loss?

I think this is a bogus rumor by NS2 Media. Should we call that fake news! Good job, though, NS2! Congratulations for a job well done!

+1

sounds like basically the new motor in the 991.1 RS.

I wonder if these new “calibrations” of the rear wheel steering can be updated in our first gen cars?

No manual and only 20 hp. I’ll keep my .2 GT3. Pretty underwhelming. It will still sell out though.

Even the graphics are recycled.
But they worked great on 997.1RS, so let's do green again as well !!

Haha- press embargo is up Feb 6th, so Porsche hasn't technically unveiled it yet as though it is February 6th in Germany, everybody is sleeping. However, in Australia, there are various news sites that have posted up the press release.

Definitely an incremental upgrade, just like the .2 GT3. But the GT3 had the manual going for it. This is even less incremental, so if i owned a .1 RS I would find it very hard to upgrade. Now, if i was coming from a .1 GT3 and wanted an RS, this is probably the one. But dear lord the ADM on these babies won’t be pretty. Are we looking at a $300k GT3 RS here? Or even more???

No manual, but this car will have the aura of likely last NA RS, so that will keep ADMs rather high.

I will start the ADM bidding at $30k. PM me if you have access to an allocation.

Yep, it does have that going for it.
