Hi Taffy, hope you're well. It sounds like, if you were forced to choose between your current GT3 and the 458, you'd keep the Fezza. It must be very good indeed then! You should bring it along to our next meet. Would love a passenger ride smile

One day I will scratch the Ferrari itch but can't see myself parting with my Porsches. Its a dilemma as I have neither the funds nor space to add another expensive toy!
I hope all's well your end also..I love my GT3 as much as my Ferrari however the 458 feels much more special..Hopefully i'll get a 992GT3 allocation and if so i'll get a Manual.
I took one of my best mates for a spin this morning in the 458 and he was laughing all the way..I forgot to ask him whether he was laughing with joy or more likely at my driving..drivinglaugh

I’ve heard from Porsche that the second batch of 991.2 GT3RS with WP is ‘definitely happening’. The only variable is when these cars will be delivered and whether you receive an allocation. I’ve heard one dealer suggest deliveries in sept-Nov this year. Just have to sit and wait this one out.
Thats Great! NOT.

End of trackday season nearly then you have to wait till 2020 to get it out again!

Possible release of batch 2 with the GT4?

Agreed. Even the OPC dealer said ‘who would want to take delivery at that time of year, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Do Porsche have a track record of launching a new car i.e the 992 in this case and then deciding to build a few more old ones (991.2 in this case)

What is the basis for believing that they will have a second run ...?

The game has moved on to 992 , surely ?

Totally agree.

However some people on here 'seem' to know 100% that P are producing the second batch

The fact the car is still on the configurator is the only hard evidence that more cars may be coming.

However, the 991.1 GTS is still there too and I very much doubt more of them are on the way.

It has returned to the configurator as it was removed a while ago - even more evidence I would say

Maybe, maybe not. If the WLTP testing has taken longer than originally planned as has been speculated, then it could be removed again at any time...

Looking at Rennlist 991.2 GT cars are still being delivered in the US for example this PTS GT3 seems to have just been delivered....how long does it take to ship a car across the Atlantic ? I think 15 to 20 days.

Having imported cars before I would say more like 8 weeks at least.

PORSCHE do indeed have a track record of building the last few old models along side the new model,quite standard for them!

Isn't there a significant spec difference between US cars and European spec cars? There are certain rules in the US about 'race' cars which means they're not allowed to have roll cages and harness mounts, hence the US spec GT2RS with WP doesn't have a cage of any type, and harnesses and a cage aren't even an option on the US spec GT3 RS.

Porsche don’t have a track record of confirming allocations and locking specs before a car is officially launched but they did that last year for the GT3 RS first batch.We’re in uncharted territory for Porsche right now!

Fair point! It's just seems very unusual for any manufacturer to be building an 'old' car with so much overlap with its replacement...

They’ve been building 991.2 GTS’s as well....pretty sure some were slated for delivery this year. It is odd though that production for both models seems to be happening at the same time.

Supposedly WP on last batch if it arrives.
Does it have the Filter?
If so were the last RS’s and 3’s the last NA’s that will have a true soundtrack without any restrictions??

They had fairly hefty catalytic converters, so not exactly unrestricted previously...
