The GTRs actually did not use a spindle. They used an upright with a live-spindle hub from the 935.

They did correct the geometry for the lowered chassis, but not quite as well as they could have....

None of the factory efforts used tube framing or double wishbones. Some privateers did tubeframe the front end, but the factory cars all use the standard bodyshell with some minor modifications.

There is a reason for the 924 and 931 numbers, it has nothing to do with the arithmetic difference. The 924 is named such because it...

The part number includes the hub adapter, there is no separate number for the hub. There are different numbers depending on vehicle fitment, which would concern the hub specifically.

Strut towers generally spread under cornering load. That puts them tension, so the rotating joints are not an issue. If they were working in compression, it would of course be a different story.

991 GT3RS. Appears to be a private car, probably coincidence. Doesn't look like a factory benchmark car.

It's the street 997/991 centerlocks that are garbage. The race CLs are usually okay (the 997 race ones are actually problematic I think).

The race ones are extremely high maintenance but do allow...

How does that work? The 997 uses a live spindle. 997 bearing (which isn't the best choice to begin with) would require a bespoke upright.



Not only is the bearing service a PITA, but it also...

Why would it be called a 912? The 912 is a four-cylinder 911.

Why would only the convertible be called a 968? The 968 came as both coupe and cab.

Sounds interesting though, why do you ask? Are...

Is this a drag car? Circuit car?

Assuming you are capable of handling a big horsepower, rear-engine car (which isn't easy), then the 997 is a better car.

Depends on what model they are from. If you have brake fade on an S2 with limited power modifications, something else is probably wrong. Change pads first.

Green car is a Targa. The GT3 is just trundling along, probably getting ready to pull in.

Riviera-esque Blue and white are the only color at this time. More colors will be offered in the future. I think metallic brown was the original prototype color, so that might make an appearance....

If it is a spec car, it probably isn't worth it. (Some classes may even prohibit it). But, now is the time to do it.

Typical click-bait.

You can't see the engine in any new car. Porsche 992 is relatively worse than its contemporaries, as all rear-engined cars are.
