You know this, Nick

Porsche is always evolutionary, not revolutionary

Expect the next RS to add another 25hp

I'm just pumped for the manual

Not many other cars offer this experience N/A, manual, etc. For many of us -this is exactly the car we're looking for.

Think there will be a .2RS? Odds are against it since there will be a GT2RS.

As expected, marginal performance improvements quoted by Porsche with a $10k+ price hike. Hopefully 4.0L engine will prove to be more robust, however, it is equally stressed as the 3.8 @125hp/ltr. Addition of MT gives PAG the opportunity to increase the production run of .2 GT3s since everyone of them will be sold, especially if the current stock market levels hold. I would expect nicely equipped cars will push the current RS MSRP.

Big question, as others have noted, is the lack of info on RPM. Also another question is whether rev limiter will be the same for MT and PDK equipped car. Unless the gearing of the MT and PDK are signidicantly different I do not comprehend the big difference in 0-62 times. Maybe different limiter levels explains a big chunk of the difference in quoted times to 0-62.

I think this car will be a gold mine for Porsche. It seems to have minimal improvements over the .1 and the development costs for the tranny as well as the engine have already been absorbed by the R and the RS.

Bring them on!

Let the flip fest commence....I think the first flipped GT3 allocations/cars will be $35k-$40k over.

Everything I've heard suggests we will get a .2 GT3RS in addition to the GT2RS

+1 and at a better price point than the competition. This car will be one HOTT ticket.

Yup, we'll get both because Porsche can sell a bunch of both cars. It's all about the dollars!

Yeah. Why not?

The 997.2 had a GT3, GT3 RS, GT2 RS, and GT3 RS 4.0.

I wouldn't be surprised if they end the 991 generation similarly. And I'm on the list for all 4.

Same horsepower and 1 less torque than the 991.1 R/RS. Curious to know how the engines differ...

Make mine a MT in Volcano Grey, please!

I notice your utmost regard for humanity, an optimist.

I say ADM will be $45-55k easily. I have little faith in the goodwill of men.

So you're saying I needed a 4 year conversation?
I waited 2 years fro my .1 GT3, so you should get going ASAP
