doh!

Yes, itís an F/2015.

FYI, I have a habit of changing oil every 4 events, and except for a few turns where I upshift early, itís on the automatic mode on the track.

For the street, I shift manually, and keep it no lower than 2500rpm. Usually at least 3k.

No puttering around engine speeds for me.

When was your car produced? Before March 2015? Do you know the original Enginenumber?

(The replacement engine was produced in 2018!, right?)

Perhaps I missed it, but have we ever established how many engines have been replaced?? Does anyone have knowledge of how many GT3 991.1s were built? I heard 4,000, but that is hearsay only.

Thank you for taking your time sharing your experience.

I'm sure stories like this puts a smile on the face on Rob and the other in the group - sort of a payback on the amazing work they did.

Even though I'm not effected (yet - RS) I'm still thankful to you guys who helped extending the warranty.

Without the warranty extension I would have sold my car already, so I too am immensely grateful for the effort Rob and Co put into this. BTW you with the RS do not have to worry about this problem as none are affected

Hi folks,
i just bought a 14 GT3 on it’s 3rd Engine. I have no documentation as to what series it is. I don’t know when its last replacement was. Any speculation. Is there a way to check on the engine itself? I bought it thru a porsche Dealer, has engine warranty until 2014 and CPO.
thanks
