It would miss the point of the exercise. Lightweight base model with go fast kit. Sport classic may be the next special edition and that should be based on an S or GTS. That being said, LWBs may become available as an option across the range like they did at the end of the 997 era. Of course, that assumes Leer can make enough to satisfy demand. Some crazy percentage (well over a majority) of GT3s are ordered with them.

Other than 6MT/NA, what more could we ask for in the model? A 911T instead of 911 Carrera T badge?

Look at the GT2RS marketing. You'd think they were having a hard time selling those things.

It’s just the same old repetitive script with a different story line.

Overhyped and under deliver the product, or under deliver the supply.

The aggressive price increases are going to start hitting a ceiling. The turbo Carrera’s and 4 banger 718’s aren’t getting much love in the US.

Well, if all that were true, then yeah, the new 911T would be the car for you.
Bingo. ^^^^^^^^^^^^
If all else fails.. then yes, its the best base 911 you can buy. But, why would everything else fail?

And Let’s not forget the competition from other manufacturers who are actually working hard to produce great competing products at much more aggressive prices.

US press release.

Not much new, but confirms LWBs for US and mandatory rear seat delete with LWBs. No mention of radio delete.

Smart on Porsche's part. Gets the M3/4 buyer who wants a 911 but is too stubborn to considering anything but an S (or better) behind the wheel of what is essentially a base car, and makes them feel proud about it (not that there's anything wrong with a base 911).

GT3s available at $15-25k over. It’s only money.

Not in the UK my friend, allocations appear fewer than for the 991.1, they're all gone, **** people are being told wait a year for a Turbo S.

I love my car but I think I might sell it before the 992 announcement and move on.

Note shorter gearing = torque multiplier, plus 450Nm @ 1700rpm, so you have SPASM, RAS and PTV in a car thats lighter than a 991.1 GT3.

Add MPSC2N1 and I think this car may surprise a few people. Short gearing and loads of torque is the winning recipe used by rally cars. It'll be great in the hills and twisties.

For a lot of people this car will make sense.

I like it, a lot.
A base Carrera lightly modified to have some fun. And a great car for young people who would like a first brand new 911.




And black calipers too

I like it. I always liked the base carrera best besides the GT3 in the 911 lineup. All versions in between I consider waste of money. Well, "the base" just got "base-ier" and better from a drivers perspective ! What's not to like ? Nice job !

Ah. No such thing as ADM in the UK I suppose. The weak pound must be causing Porsche to cut back on allocations to the UK.

Agree that shorter gearing is a torque multiplier and is a great thing. However the GT3 has even shorter gearing than the 911T, which gives the .2 GT3 more functional torque than the 911T.

Also the 911T is not lighter than a 991 GT3 if ordered with the same equipment as the radio is considered standard on the GT3 but is not standard on the 911T. Also the 911T weight is calculated using the manual for the base weight. You specifically mentioned the 991.1 GT3 which is PDK only, if you compare the 911T to the current 991.2 GT3 with a manual, the 911T is clearly heavier.

Turbo engines are heavier than NA engines and always will be.
