I have to agree here. There's too much money on the table and PAG knows quite well they'll sell every one they make.

Me thinks that they are pumping out all they can build.
Why make it more complicated with all those GT models when you're at max production with just 3 till the new 992 model?

I still think a few more GT4's as long as they can build this model Cayman, a GT3 4.0 manual and for RS straight to GT2RS. Then it starts all over with the 992 in 2018.

This whole question left me in a quandary a couple weeks ago when the sales manager called with an allocation ; I had to decide if I wanted what was likely their last RS allocation in this generation or pass and be first for the next one . In the end I decided that I better take it . I had been on the list for almost 2 years and couldn't imagine waiting nearly another 2 - or maybe there isn't one .

They won't launch an RS (or GT3) version in the first year of 992 production.

IMO, there will be a 991.2 GT3 which will have a 3.8L with RS intake and manual option and some improved aero; will be slower vs. 991.1 RS on track, but faster vs. 991.1 GT3; manual option will make it special; and since it's a GT3; they will make as many as they can sell... and that will leverage the R&D used to fit manual in the R, tune it, etc. and keeping it a 3.8L and massed produced will protect value of the R's. I think they won't do a .2 RS; but will do a GT2/RS to showcase the benefits of turbos in GT cars; they will showcase no turbo lag and controllable torque.. will be the fastest 911 ever to lap the ring; this will lead to a softer transition to 992.. will silence the N/A loyalists.... as they make the 992.1 GT3/RS turbo'ed. i don't see the 997 timeline as a good indicator for the current situation; which is completely different vs. back then.

I think this is solid reasoning.

Agreed, except the part about the 3.8L in the 991.2 GT3.

I believe AP (and someone else on separate occasions) in Geneva said the upcoming 991.2 refresh of the GT3 would have the 4.0L engine from the R and the RS.

Of course things could change.

Spot on. Additionally a 918 owner only RS.2 NA swan song with 4.2 liter and proper rev limit.

Very smart call. It might just be the last NA RS, time will tell.

.
think you will find it a miss quote from Autocar, bit like when they said 91RS is Turbo due the side intakes....

Don't see the 4.0 NA, in GT3 Maybe MT as an option, taking into account that it uses the PDK casing.
I could be wrong just my view.....

Will be interesting to see the new 991.2 GT3/991.2RS and what the evolution might be over the 991.1GT3/991.GT3RS....

The 991.2GT2RS is going to be the car to see IMO.

Who knows what the 992 series will bring... but that is a ways away.
