-Big aero will be what make the GT2RS and Viper ACR beater. plus everything else now with TQ.
-Maybe active aero like the TTS?
-Improved RWS
-Further weight loss to compensate for the TT weight, this could be solved with straight pipes after market
-More room for suspension adjustability
-Stiffer springs to deal with down force
-This time no limited edition, its the new unlimited GT3RS and they will pump out the super reliable turbo motor faster than ever before.
You probably know where I am this week. Tried to get some info about the gt2rs today. Asked about launch dates and some special exclusive options that I would love to get. So far I've only got smiles back but no confirmation. I'll keep trying, so far all lips are sealed.

Pretty much agree with everything here. Hoping they at least give it a new wheel design or else it'll look like I have a pair of GT3 RS's in different colours. At this point, I'm leaning towards the McLaren P14 which I expect will outperform the 2RS for similar coin.

Any word on which engine the 2RS's engine will be based on; the 3.8 from the Turbo S, or the 4.0 from the 3RS with different heads for a turbo setup, or something else entirely?

A new wheel design would be great, but I can't for the life of me think how they can beat the GT3/RS's design on looks. Maybe they'll go with Carbon Fiber wheels?

I hope so,
A lot of testing has been done. Cold weather testing from last winter, a lot of ring videos and now all the pics and videos from CA. Car looks very close to production.

Still hopeful for a Paris launch and delivery next spring.

Valid point^

For some reason I think the price delta will be huge this time. So maybe not as much cross shopping?

In the first spot video of GT2RS in LA, there was a GT3 in front of the GT2RS. Maybe nobody cares about .2 GT3 when a GT2RS show up.

Seems to need a lot of air. Both on the side and in the rear. Wonder why they cover up the wing supports? Don't see any canards up front. Will be interesting to see how they balance the front aero front lip doesn't look to severe.
