I'm olso thinking about driving in the winter(if i get an RS allocation)

I could only find: Yokohama BluEarth-Winter (V905) 325/30 R21 108V XL BSW as saloon car tyres, the rest of 325 are all for 4x4, but the dimensions are right.
SUV tyres: Pirelli Scorpion Ice+Snow runflat 325/30 R21 108V XL with rim protection (MFS) runflat

looks nice but as i said previously, wouldn't feel obligated to upgrade if i had a 991.1.

as the 991.1's depreciate they seem much better value.

I was just up at Camp4 in Canada and they are running studded (3mil) Hakkas on the 991.2 GT3 there. My guess, the GT3RS is most likely using the same GT3 setup front and rear for winter testing and forgoing the 21" wheels/tires and wearing the studded Nokian Hakkas. Awesome setup for winter driving and you can get the same tires without the studs if you so desire. I am using Hakkas R2 SUV on my Cayenne - best winter tire I have ever owned.

Road and track article tells you all the good details. Biggest news IMO is that they finally gave it REAL track-biased spring rates, which are going to be the biggest contributor to the increase performance, and allow all of the other changes to piggy back on them. Interestingly enough, after researching it thoroughly, those are basically the same spring rates offer by Bilstein for their Clubsport suspension kit, and very close to what Ohlins TTX offer. That's why I upgraded the GT3 suspension.

Also, note they said they will sell special Cup 2 tires that are stickier, so obviously they are taking aim at Trofeo-R, which they know is a considerably faster tire and had to address it.

The most important thing in advance: The Porsche GT3 RS facelift retains the four-liter vacuum cleaner!

From mid-April 2018, the revised GT3 RS with 520 hp (previously 500 hp) is the dealer and is the third GT model after the GT3 facelift and the GT2 RS within a year. GT2 RS within a year.

The GT3 RS facelift will be on show at the Geneva Motor Show (8 to 18 March 2018). The front takes over the RS from the GT3 facelift. New are the additional air inlets on the bonnet.

Unlike the normal GT3 Porsche leaves the customer in the transmission of the GT3 RS no choice: Even the facelift model is only available with PDK, so a dual-clutch transmission. A manual transmission is not provided. The entire interior is designed for weight reduction, which also proves the lightweight panels with nets and the new cover behind the seats.

From now on, the GT3 RS also has the extra-sporty Weissach package. It is recognizable by the carbon hood, the carbon roof, the magnesium rims and additional carbon parts. How expensive the package is, does not reveal Porsche. Just to remind you: With the GT2 RS the surcharge was 29,750 euros. The chassis with ball joints on all handlebars was revised in the vote again, the rear axle steering recalibrated.

Thanks to 20 extra horsepower, driving values ​​are improved to a minimum: 3.2 seconds to 100 km / h (previously 3.3 seconds) and 312 km / h top speed (previously 310 km / h). As early as mid-April 2018, the first customer vehicles will be delivered.
