i guess there will not follow a limited edition. at least nobody heared or saw anything till now. Or?

a 991.2 speedster with NA 4.0 will come...


edit: Metzeger was faster :)
but please donīt say "last NA"...
but thinking about it. yes. could be :D
next GT3RS could become hybrid - as the 992 GT2RS will be.
GT3 could stay 100% NA.

I like say last NA on reenlist because this word starts orgasm for few rennlisters :roflmao:

On the same day itís announced that the .2 RS has only a 20hp increase, Wall Street tanks. Coincidence? I think not! :icon107:

Hmmm, if it ainít broke, donít fix it?

Iíll wait for official release to pass judgment and Iím sure lll buy one regardless. But Iím less hot and bothered for this car than I have been for a gt3/RS in a while.

Beautiful color …hope it looks good even in the flash and it’s not a washed out version of gelbgrun (as they did with lava and miami versus tangerine and mexico)

Slightly underwhelming under the bonnet…but in line with usual RS evolutionary pattern along Porsche GT3 history (997 4.0 was a unique case) as already stated by Others.

I think nevertheless that they could do more for a final (and limited by what widely discussed) edition…moreover in the case of a NA swan song; could this be prodromic to the release of a second tranche with filter? I mean…they limited this one in order to get the same figures with the particulate filter and avoid avoid any issue with clients along (eventually extended) production.

Or maybe they simply left room for further upgrades in the 992 series? :)

It seems to me that a magazine broke embargo because the embargo was changed and not everyone got the memo. No one can seriously be suggesting that any of these details are not 100% correct.

I am beginning to think porshe's model cycle drives macro econ cycle. Adm's for 997.1rs were off-the-chart high for their time (up to 75k on a 120-150k car before car market was nearly so frothy). By the time 997.2rs came around as a MATERIALLY better car (unlike this 991.2rs color/decal refresh), they were sitting on show room floors for MSRP and not moving. Clearly Porsche's gt launches drive macro econ conditions!

I already have a 1.RS and MT 2.GT3, but if my dealer gets me an allocation at MSRP it will be hard to turn down, especially in that lovely green with matching green bits inside. Have to admit though, it would be tough to let my 1.RS go...we have become best buds with all the fun track days we have had together... Decisions

Bardman 02-06-2018 06:10 AM

Also canít believe there is still speculation on NA in 992 - we have as much evidence as we will ever get short of a press release that 992 goes turbo (from same source who confirmed GT3 Touring significantly in advance of the press release).

Love the green. But, I really hope they don't recycle the decals on official launch. 1) as a current 997.1rs owner and 2) as a future 991.2rs owner. 3) it's just an admission by Porsche that they are out of ideas and recycling decals from the last model (not some tribute from 50yrs ago) is LAME.

Instagram photos of the car have been taken down (in the last hour or so - I could see them before and now are gone) - that tells me Porsche requested they get pulled. I think what you see is what you get.

Someone else mentioned this: tough to tell from those low-res pics but 2nd pic, side view, green looks metallic?

It looks a little more sculpted and less bloated than the 991.1rs.

Not sure if it was posted earlier but the Instagram post was calling it "Lizard Green".

That seat fabric looks a bit weird also. Any ideas on what it is?
