If less, it might help protect values a bit for .1 GT3.

8,800 or 9K redline, don't think 9K will somehow make .1's more valuable considering the engine dramas.

I'm most excited about what colors it's going to be available in. If Miami blue (or any other bright blue) is available as a non PTS color I'm selling my RS and buying one.

Nice to finally see it on official paper....

<10% price increase when you factor in no cost track app - add LWB, LWFW if available, contrast stitching a few other things - you get to $170 in a hurry - mine will be a stripper...

Good point, but the track app doesn't require SC. The track app software can be added after, even without SC (according to the dealer.) I never did it since the reviews of the app were so poor. Would nice to have the option of a wart-free dash...

Don't appear to have the Magnesium roof of the RS.

It won't have any of the lightweight panels of the RS, couldn't do that and keep the base price sane.

Hey, don't be greedy. At least it doesn't have the mandatory sunroof like in 2007 and 2008

Great spec.

Now with the MT option, no better all-around car/price/performance/appearance/etc. car out there.

does this mean that with less aero drag, 500 HP, it will be much quicker than the mighty RS? inquiring minds want to know.....

Grant. I think the 0-100 time for the outgoing GT3 was 3.5 and 3.3s to 60 mph.

It would be good if you can delete the "wart".

I imagine the car will have same wheel/tyre package as 991.1 and it doesn't appear there are any weight saving measures.

You can pretty much be certain the redline for this car will be pegged at 8600 rpm (MT).

The PDK makes a strong suit for itself being no more (we assume ) than the manual option and considerably faster to 100. However I think Ill be trying the MT this time...;-)
