I didnt get One offered to me back in the day for $210. Silver CF fenders, couple hundred miles. But I went for the 4.0 because you know CF fenders std, no PCCB and cheaper......

Twilight zone stuff.

most here have never owned a 700whp+ car or one that is capable of running a 9 sec 1/4 mile on street tires. awd is a must if you want to go WOT below 80mph and not blow your tires off.

I think porsche could make a rwd gt2 work though.
- rear engine grip
- cup tires
- longer gearing

its definitely going to be widowmaker with the systems off though.

I used an APR modified RS7 running on 100 octane as a daily driver for a while. It was heavier than a GT2 and was putting out around 725hp/744 lb ft of torque. Ran a 10.6 1/4 mile on stock tires and you could break the tires loose if you put your foot down at speed. It was great fun but I traded it for the S550 coupe for a daily driver because I just needed to decompress after a day of patients.

700hp, massive torque and rwd requires a great deal of finesse and restraint. I think, for me, that formula is best experienced in a virtual world.

It'll be Porsche's first self-driving GT offering. Just punch Senna or Maldonado into the PCM and sit back and enjoy the lap.....or not....

Plenty. No PDK on prior Turbo had nothing to do with inability to handle power.

My vote would still be for RWD. I mean, the McLaren 675, P1 and LaF get along with just fine with RWD and 900+ hp. But I could easily be fine with AWD.

This is good as Mac will then have to make sure the upcoming P14 really lifts its game. You'll soon need at least 600HP to be able to call it a "sports" car!!
Can't wait to see what McLaren does with the P14. Where are those Porsche 960 rumors? C'mon Porsche. Somebody get on the phone to the cleaning lady!

The PDK unit in the 918 seems to be holding up well and it is essentially the same as all other PDKs. Somebody correct me if I am wrong.

- rear engine grip
- same width rear tires fitted to the Bugatti Chiron
- longer gearing

Fixed it for you.

Now that is what I want to know. Is the engine being based off the Turbo S, or a beefed up version of the 4.0 from the GT3RS with different heads and a lower rpm limit?

There were some talks of the 960 at Geneva according to Salomodrian check out his video: https://youtu.be/UbdnV3_JOoQ

it's not a GT2 if it has AWD.

600-700hp is no problem RWD. Porsche will put 335 tires on the back. with a good differential most people will be able to drive them just fine.

having had the 675LT and P1 on track extensively, they are not impossible to drive but if you try to drive them like they are a nissan GTR you will end up tires up and roof down.

Had a nice ride with a Swedish racecar driver in a 997 GT2 RS (He's team won Nürburgring 24h last year).

His opinion about the Gt2RS was: "Maybe this is a little bit too much"

Thinking the same thing. I am sure it will be a beast, but the styling leaves me empty.

Where will it end, 700 hp, come on. Some guys are saying they can't enjoy a 1.1 gt3 on the street with 475 hp then they say, can't wait for the 2RS. Why bother with this much unusable power, I really don't get it. Hang on, okay, flame suit just put on.
