Nice. Arctic Silver might not have been my first choice, but it's growing on me. I think I see yellow seat belts on your wife's car. If so, then they're identical twins.

I would keep it. The higher performance versions of every Porsche series seem to do well in the used/vintage/collector markets.

Saw the light?

I've always been a "latest and greatest" guy, losing interest in the current model as soon as the next one was announced, or even speculated. When the 991 GT3 was announced, I ordered one right away...

Although Walter Rohrl describes the GT4 as "a perfect handling car", I've seen a number of complaints that the strut rear suspension carries over from the previous 981's. I've never driven a 981...

Good catch. Just because the light is "off" and sport mode is disabled, it doesn't mean the system isn't working.

Mike, is it possible people are confusing PASM with PDCC? I'm quite sure you can't turn off PDCC, at least in the 991.

Is this the same forum group that has been collectively apoplectic about the possible demise of the N/A engine????

A BLOWER for crying out loud!

Eduardo, you didn't specifically mention Brumos who, as a Porsche dealer, doesn't have the option to switch!

Just curious, did the dealer advise you that you're not supposed to drive it until the engine is replaced? Or, did you discover that on your own?

Nice car BTW!

Since he used the plural "posers", I may have been included in his ad hominem attack but, not so. I have already owned a 991 GT3. I have had only one Corvette, but that was enough.

Your point is well taken, especially in light of the number of posters who said they would flee to the C7 due to the GT3 issue.

No, but it doesn't seem that Porsche's problem does either. From what we think we know, the repair could be done in the shop. Replacing the engine is simply a first class way to deal with the issue....

Porsche says the same thing in the 991S manual, so it doesn't seem specific to the GT3 or RWS. I believe that they have stated that it puts too much load on body and suspension components. If they...

That would help.



Maybe not in your book, but there were a lot of people who posted that they were ready to buy Corvettes over the track warranty issue.

I think we're getting way ahead of ourselves when we conclude that there is some inherent deficiency in the new motor. It may well be that the problem is exactly what many have already surmised - a...

Give the guy a break, he's not a mechanic and English might not be his first language. Maybe he just made a lucky guess, but he previously posted this (#144):

Good question. The fact that most used 458's are listed at, or above, MSRP leads one to believe that new cars are still hard to get. I've been very surprised by the number of people who have said...
