It's likely a factor, they could sell a lot more GT3.2's now, but if Brexit happens and the pound goes sub-euro they may not have as many repeat customers, so why not build loyalty in expanding markets.

Actually, the poor-man's "mini-me" version of the 911R.

I dig this car. Thank God they are making 6 gear 911R type cars for the masses.

Still going for Gt3 Touring (heart is set). Infact this makes Gt3 more luxurious car (it has interior door handles). Lol!!!

Very interesting car nonetheless. Price point is excellent

So if the MT is essentially the same 7 speed as the rest of the Carerra lineup, how many people would rather have this car then pay a few thousand more for an S?

I think it woukd make more sense if it were priced closer to the base version or had the 6 speed GT manual which with LWB would make it a more unique Carerra spin-off.

I'm a fan. I agree it's a bit of a tough sell with 991.1 GTS, GT4, and Spyder in the same price range. But if I was looking to order a new 911 that wasn't a GT3, this would be it.

Do I dare dream that they would make a Targa version?

I think this is a good idea by Porsche this model.

I have been seeing, lately, a lot of chicks driving a base 911 these days.

Who is to say this is being marketed just for men.

Some of these gals would love a car like this .

I like this 911T.... a pure no frills 911 (from the current parts bin obviously). It's good to have choices. I really enjoyed my standard .1 manual Carrera2 on & off the track so I can only imagine how this new little fun one would be.... with a standard ltd slip diff too. Plus now that you can add sport buckets w/ automatic rear seat delete.... nice!

If I didn't have a .2 GT3 now, heck... I'd be tempted to order one of these T's.

But now I just noticed it will be priced 10% higher than the base carrera and almost about the same pricepoint as the S. So why on earth would you take the T ?

Like it. If I did not get a GT3 Touring allocation I would be looking into it.
Maybe very few people will buy it and the numbers will be so low that in 20 years it will be a collector.

End of life stripper model.
Should have called it RSAmerica and cheaper. You know, simple, half baked.

And these days every person thinks RSA worth billion dollars - I almost bought one in 2010 for 30k but decided it was too slow...

I went in to put deposit on gt4 RS the other day - Dealer told me no chance and offered this 912T thing and said it was car I could actually get on list for - meh I said

15 years from now Porsche may conclude that this moment in time when new GT cars "appreciate" and 918 owners got them all was the moment they could point to that killed the company

997.2 RS you could have walked into dealer purchased and driven home - and you'd sell for 20% loss when done with it

Supply and demand matched

Print out 10000 GT2rs and GT3 stop making these base cars that in this hot economy nobody wants and end this silliness
