BREAKING NEWS!!!


From member Ressy:
Quote:
Just got called by my contact which saw a White Pre-Series LE at Zuffenhausen! Literally he said: "think about an RSR with the rear wing of a GT3RS MK2 and you will have the 4.0 RS!"

Being a Pre-Series things might change but according to what he said we have:
  • Front and Rear wider wheel arches with rivets RSR style, the car will be fitted with spacers behind the rims (to fit with the wider body).
  • Front bonnet and rear boot in CF but luckily painted! NOT in ugly black GT2RS style.
  • PCCB as standard.
  • Manual 6 speeds gear box ONLY. (Sorry Maraki!!)
  • Despite few CF parts the overall weight of the car should be the same as the GT3RS Mk2 due to the 4.0L engine being slightly heavier than the 3.8L.
  • The rev. limiter should be at 8500rpm but this info cannot be confirmed at 100%.
New Image based on the news above:

Thanks BBTurbo!

1) Porsche will not announce the car on April 7th. They don't announce new models on Thursdays. They also would announce a car of this magnitude at some type of "event". There are no events on April 7th. My source said the announce will be in May, but no specific day given. Porsche feels that they announced so many cars in the last few months that they want the dust to settle. This will be the last 997 announced and then the 998 will start to get revealed. LE's will be delivered to US in August and Sept. That would be a major disappointment. We've already waited a long time.

2) 4.0L yes. 485 HP, not 500. NO PDK.

3) CF Hood and Fenders from GT2RS - No Surprise

4) Only slightly lighter than the GT3RS

5) New graphics and paint schemes - no surprise

6) Aero will be enhanced, but don't expect RSR style aero

7) Two tone interior options ala GT2RS.

8) Some suspension tweaks

9) $185k MSRP. With CF options it's over $200k.
4-13-2011
*SPEC SHEET LEAKED!!!!!!

Not fully verified, only speculation at this point



Added 4-15-2011
Possible test mule spotted for the 4.0 LE

(Notice front bumper canards and a larger rear wing)

That would simultaneously be awesome and sickening. Any GT model coming out is a cause for celebration, but I don't want the RS to go the Gallardo route, with a new "special" edition coming out every 43 seconds. Would be an incredible performer, I assume, if the rumors are true.

Porsche is making too many special edition models. It's almost like they don't want anyone to be left out. Like DJ said, it's their model line is going to start to look like Jox's list.

Seems porsche will keep making additional 997 models so long as there are parts left on the shelf.

That would SUCK!!

The whole reason that I ordered the RS was due to the fact that it was a limited edition.

I hope that this is seriously only a rumour!

I believe such a power hike should be reserved for the new 991 RS !
