At any rate... I LOVE that it's a fatter wheel!
Looks just like the PDK wheel in my GTS

I like the wide butt. Interior is great except I still dont like the wart on the console. I wonder if it is as useless as current gen warts. Paddles are fine for me - yes more electronics involved but more cars have "cheater" computers integrated to get faster times around the track now.

Well..is a glass "half full" or "half empty"..the infos look good..but the scepticisms towards the 9A1 engine is7are now confirmed - if its true what has been posted - Porsche will never use this engine in racing..and many people were saying.."9a1 won daytona class..its a good engine etc"..it is a good engine - but just not made for racing.

Although I have heard other news on the GT3 engine..all this is still speculation..lest wait and see..I remember there were also posts clearly saying that the 991 will be introduced with an 8 cylinder..

well, andreas, I think the 9a1 is a good engine and has showed potential at Daytona, but that doesn't mean that Porsche can't do even better, and perhaps has. If this info is correct, I'd say the glass is completely full, at least AFAIC.

I wonder if this new motorsport engine is a direct bolt-in replacement for cars with the 9A1...

Meh. Was hoping for something a little more dramatic. It's kind of plain. Not much different than current car.

20's and CL's? Boo!!! Oh well, can't please everyone. Saturday cars and coffee crowd will love it though!

I don't mind PDK.

Crazy me, just locked in the first build slot at my favorite dealer for an RS in 2014...lol! Only a done deal if 5-lug is offered though. If CL only, they can keep their car.

Now I need to figure out when to sell the current car...my guess is the high water mark sometime this Summer.
