It's a solid car. But I fail to see a strong reason to upgrade from .1 for someone who does not want a manual, though. Definitely no sense to "upgrade" from .1 RS

The $$$ difference between a .1 and .2 market adjusted car will be huge. Not worth it.

Someone has an RS?? There is no "upgrade" now, even the .2 GT3 unless you want both! Would rather have the .1 RS personally.

nope, exact same hp and exact same torque as 991.1 RS, which also has 338 torque.

The 991.1 RS and 911R are both listed as having 338 torque, just like this new 4.0L 991.2 GT3.

The only 4.0L road going GT car with more torque according to Porsche is the 997 RS 4.0 which listed as 339 torque, but that's an entirely different engine than the one in the 911R, 991.1 RS,....and 991.2 GT3.

As most will imagine Im very curious about the engine. Apart from saying its "new" (which it is in the most obtuse sense of the word) I still have my suspicions this is the "G6" engine being used in the latest 911R/RS (i.e. DLC coated cams). Hopefully there are further revisions, I guess we will know very shortly...
Macca, when you say "shortly" are you referring to tomorrow or later?

I know it's still early , but I was just wondering if anyone else from North America has European Delivery in 2017 confirmed yet?

I thought I did, but my dealership manager just emailed me and said Euro Delivery not available for 2017.

I don't mind waiting until next year for a Euro trip, but thought it was weird that it's not available at all, no?

Maybe it's a rounding error as Macca suggested, or as the early press for the RS said 338, the full reveal tomorrow could be 339.


Or its just a Porsche conspiracy so the RS owners feel better about themselves for owning a car with 1 ole extra ft of torque?????

I think they will be pushing the first cars out as soon as they can and don't want to mess with european delivery for a small volume of cars. Plus, North american won't get their first cars until Sept anyway. I expect that most of the VIPs getting cars in Sept, just want them ASAP, before winter hits.

I have confirmed european delivery of my .2 GT3 for summer of 2018. Will have plenty of time to plan. I can't wait.

Certainly could be the case, although I think it needs some sort of launch control the break 4s barrier.

If Porsche indeed has different rev limiters for PDK and MT it may devalue the car with the lower number. If both have the same limit then PDK car is being harmstrung to the benefit of the MT car. I wonder where the limiter will be set. 8400? 8500? 8600?

I would surmise that is PAG sticks to its 2 year pattern that GT capacity will be expanded beyond the nominal 2,500/yr. thrown around. Maybe 3500? If so there will be like a 7000 car production. Remember that the GT cars are like a guaranted sell vs. regular production Carreras.

If you are a PDK-S convert, why is this such exciting news? Sell me on trading my 991.1 GT3 for the new .2.
