I can see regarding the radio delete as unavailable for US-spec due to backup cam requirements... but even the current US configurator for the .2 GT3 still has that same missing headrest cushion on the buckets. The Confusiorator continues to have the same bug.... not 100% accurate. So I'll presume the 911T's render will continue to be missing that same piece...

The 991 doesn’t have air suspension. Ride height cannot be changed by the push of a button.

Sport PASM (SPASM) is 10mm lower than PASM at a fixed height.

No requirement that backup camera display has to come through the radio screen.

Correct. By why would Porsche use different camera displays (mirrors for example) when they already designed the PCM to accomplish that feat throughout.

Damn. One of the press articles I read last night said it was coming with a 6 speed manual and I went to sleep with builds running through my head. Then I saw the website today. 7 speed. Bummer.

The 911T is due in March; the NHTSA rear camera requirement does not go into effect until May. Theoretically early builds - like with the 991.2 GT3 - could have the option to delete the PCM.

hmm, I was always a big vague on that button having bought the car secondhand

I push it on smoother roads like motorways when I'm going at higher speeds, it could be just psychological or wind resistance pushing the car down a bit but it feels lower

The radio delete cubby is $115.

I think you have to flash the ECU to tell it there is no radio, but all in it should be cheap enough if you really want radio delete to replicate post-sale.

I agree this is a good idea to bring some potential M4/C63 buyers into the 911 family, but IMO a well-tuned analog suspension like the 987 and 987 Spyders would have gone a long way towards making this a truly unique and desirable 911, reinforcing the 'less is more'/RS America this car is trying to portray, and it would have lowered the weight (and price) a bit more as well.

A lot of manufacturers do it with a smaller screen on cheaper models, or in the mirror like you said.

They're using the radio delete in their US marketing too, probably one of the ways they get down to that advertised weight number. Keeping the screen just for backup cam seems silly. Curious to see how this is handled...

Surely someone has specced a GT3 with radio delete, for 2018 delivery, and can give us some more insight on this?

I think radio delete is available on GT3, many people aren't getting their cars until late 2018. Hm.

Yes, I read that PCM delete is not an option for North America.

Interestingly this would probably be my pick of the litter (price no object) if I needed rear seats and I was looking for a street car.

Rear wheel drive adjust-ability
Street tires = progressive breakaway
Manual
Low boost = less lag, more responsive
The lightweight efforts over the base Carrera seem halfhearted, the sport suspension less so

As a driver's street car I'd likely enjoy this more than a Turbo, GTS, etc. Says quite a bit about Porsche's current lineup when you think about it. Kids...

yes and no. cars build before May 2018 will be offered w/ radio delete (mine GT3 is an April build and will not have radio). Afterwards, it can not be removed due to back up camera regulation in the US

Is the "lightweight glass" (I presume lexan) even allowed to be delivered on US cars?
