Love the new color!

20hp is on the smaller side, but otherwise is it really any different than expected?

Really left me asking: "Is that it??"

Don't think this is the 991 RSes' curtain call... this one is just... I hate to say... underwhelming.

I like the visuals, but the step-up from the .1 isn't much to even bother writing about...

Are you going to pay $100,000 more for 18 more hp and a re-calibrated RWS?

Not much left the that 4.0l ...........my guess was 525hp. It’s a .2 RS no different than the GT3 new engine same car minus bumpers. Not sure why some thought it would be a jaw dropper.

Guys, did we already forget what the hp difference was between the 997.2 GT3 and the 997.2 RS? It was 15hp.
What about the 997.1 GT3 and the 997.1 RS? It was ZERO hp difference.
AP has been quoted in the past saying that the HP war is winding down. I, for one, am ok with that.

Many people in this thread are noobs to the Motorsport line. These same people ignorantly predicted a 4.2L engine.

If .1RS owners aren’t tripping over themselves to get into the .2 RS P, then don’t be surprised if prices aren’t as crazy as some expect. The .2 GT3 was only ‘hot’ and in demand because of the MT not the puny 25HP+ and 14TQ+ additional power, or the minor tweaks to exterior styling. I was hoping for 540HP...520HP is so ‘meh’...!

I am going to keep my .1RS for the track and welcome my MT PTS .2 GT3 in March for the road and DD. The .2 RS is going to be great! Without a doubt. So it may be a great opportunity for those that couldn't get a .1RS or a .2 GT3 to get it. I would use vinyl on top of my XPEL if I want an RS with a different color and spend the $100,000 that I save from ADM on the .2 RS and get a lot Of driving time and spend on flying lessons and get a used Cessna and go around the world in 40 days (old Jules will be rolling in his grave).

oh about DOW...
i know many think the drop or whatever correction will take adm sway and make YOU able to get a car.
the fact of the matter is in today's global econ, EVERYTHING is linked. if DJIA drop like this for 3 more weeks, not buying porsche would be only a tiny issue compared to world chaos.
be careful of what u wish for.

And the 991.1 was only 25hp more and everyone went nuts over that.
