This is very interesting.... thank you for posting. So, as I understand it, GTSs have not been announced yet. Does this mean, Porsche went ahead with the California emissions certification ahead of time?

if you think about it, they pretty much have to certify the models as early in the development cycle as possible; you cant sell the car w/o theses certifications,
and you dont want to build or announce a car that doesn't certify ... bzzzz

since this is govt I think this is a pretty clear indicator that the GTS will be a 17 and a 3.0L tt...

Makes total sense... good find.. I suppose it may also confirm a very short 991.2 cycle (?)

This is also going to be a fun way to find out what the 2018 GT3 will be packing in terms of engine and transmission options!

has to be, IMO, the .2 3.0L tt already comes pretty close to the Ring time of the 991 GT3, spec one with PASM-S, PDK, Sport Chrono, RWS etc and I think it
will give the GT3 a run for its money, if the GTS has a power hike (20bhp?)
then its as powerful as the current GT3, with more low end torque, put those
side by side on a track, I'm not sure who the winner would be?

This turbo charged variant release is really not the norm.

This I have not been able to figure out. A short .2 cycle?? Seems doubtful and would be surprising. I initially thought they're pushing the variants out faster being nervous about .2 sales. They can't afford any sales fumbles. Obviously, there's been a lot said about loss of the NA everywhere. Not like it's been looked at positively with the enthusiasts.

Will be interesting ..

I think all it will take are a couple of positive reviews from the likes of Evo and I think opinions will change...

if Evo (or similar) took a .2 S or GTS with PDK, PASM-S, RWS, Sport Chrono etc
and pit it against the current (or even next GT3) or 911R I would not be at
all surprised if the the GT3 (or 911R) didn't have a tough time demonstrating
superior performance... do it at the Ring ... EPIC!

I wonder if (I use "if" loosely here) the value of the 911R will come down to mortal values if the 991.2 GT3 comes w/ the same 4.0L and a manual option. Just a thought.
