More interested in Porsche classic (And mechatronik) then the “collector LE” new stuffs.
Singer and Ruf was cool at $300K, I wonder what a Porsche Classic goes for.
Woukd have been cool to say hi to everyone and see all the cool cars but I couldn’t make it happen.

Ford and Chevy have done it so why not Porsche ? Porsche are obviously cashing out as they need to pay for Dieselgate

I also saw it at Rennsport.... it was okay like a novelty but it's a cool tribute to the original and too bad there won't be a legal street flachbau version. If so I wouldn't even want to imagine the ADM's on this though.... lol.


Basically like a glorified GT2RS with the nostalgic aesthetics...

Damn you CAlexio.

If I don't get an alleged allocation because you are cracking jokes trying to get Philly Jellybean to needle me or Mooty threatening to have some fortune cookie wisdom about getting your calorie count and your stitching correlated to the size of your garage's amount of car coverage in square meters.


Real talk:

This is a super insane purchase for anyone but if you drive it for 30 hours on track it will be worth more than a GT3R and cost 1/4 as much to operate if not less.

Similar to the Senna GTR but the real question is- how fast is the car???? How much faster is the car in that aero profile. With SLICKS.

Weight is not that impressive- extra body weighs extra and roll cage cancels out interior delete.

3100 lbs
700hp
Slicks

Hmm!! Not sure how much aero it actually has.

6:33 at the ring? 6:29?

You and Alex need to get a room.

As for the car, for that kind of money I’d jump on a Manthey Cup MR. The only upside to this in theory is that you could drive it to the track, but that’s about as likely to happen as pigs taking flight.

Between the first day unveil and Sunday, the car loses the red centre covers on the wheels. One fell off the car exiting the pits heading into the hairpin. After that they took the other 3 off.

Car is sold though Motorsport, Weissach direct. PMNA is only an agent in between. They take in interests and hand them to Weissach for the final decision on who gets one.

Motorsport customers had been complaining about them missing out on specialty cars as they don't have relationship with the retail dealers, so Porsche made a special car just for them.

Maybe because they attached the wheels WITH ZIPTIES!!!

And that's not tradition either, because the "real" 935 wheels weren't attached that way originally
