Even Andreas Preulinger has recently said in interviews that the 992RS should only be bought by people who want to take it on track and that its too extreme looking to drive on public roads. I happen to share this view however I suspect we are in the minority. In an ideal world OPCs would only allocate the 992RS to clients who they know take their GT Porsches on track on a fairly regular basis.
Unfortunately we don't live in that world and most will be given to the usual suspects who will only keep it for a few months at most before selling it at their supplying OPC on a SOR basis.
I must admit it's really grown on me after getting over the looks and think the launch car in non WP Ice Grey Metallic and Red wheels and side decals is pretty stunning although not something I'd be happy driving down the high street.
I think there will always be flippers and collectors, though I am always impressed when I go to the NS just how many RS you see there most days. They are definitely not a rare sight.

Assuming my allocation shows up ( likely) it will be traced immediately but I would dearly love to have folding LWBs like I had on my 7.2RS. This would make the car at least minimally useful for a weekend where it would be more possible to stuff bags into it. With factory pickup I am not in a position to trailer it and I usually do 4-5000km in the first three weeks. Maybe Porsche will supply laundry chits.

About the same they're selling 992GT3s then. Tough choice between the two however if pushed I'd get the GT4 RS.

I've heard a rumor that there may be some form of 'RS Touring' type thing, but I don't really understand how that would work with no 'frunk'. I guess there would be a cage delete so the rear could be used for storage.

Cars for North America have no roll cage, but the non-folding seats still make loading tricky. There is apparently another variant , ( the ST??) coming that will be somewhat more touring but I have only heard rumours.

An RS Touring won't have a cage and would need softer springs to tour in.

I wasn't saying it would be called a 'RS Touring' I was told, by someone who I consider to be relatively well informed, that it would be loosely based on the RS and called an ST as RDMcG said previously. Not saying it's going to happen 100% but who knows?

Could be the long awaited replacement for the 991.2 Carrera T.

no that model is not happening. Maybe a Gen 2 model, but not happening anytime soon. We haven't seen the T moniker in any of the other model ranges of late which is the sign of a trickle down effect.

As I understand it, the ST is happening (part of the 'Heritage' line of cars) and it will be loosely based upon the GT3 RS - engine, perhaps some of the adjustability and other improvements etc., but obviously minus the aero and cage etc.

I'm passing on the 3RS for a chance at the ST... (was offered one or the other).
