Have you heard JCR's GT4?
Not in the flesh, no. However it currently has a full system replacement, OPF delete/header/silencer. Not suitable for everyone, debatable if it's road legal and I believe it's throwing CEL warning lights...
I’ve heard it...it was at a track day I was at last year...had track silencer fitted and still sounded mental.

Personally on a brand new GT car that’s just been released I wouldn’t be fitting any after market mods for a year or so. You’ve got to run the car in anyway so you’re not going to be thrashing it for the first few months.

Not if they want to secure "their" allocation, so No hehe
Does this really matter ?

"MH" can afford to buy any car he wants ... and he could probably borrow almost anything for a long term test.

There is no doubt that he is a very good driver and is well qualified to decide what he wants to drive ...

+1. Will it be legal to remove particulate filters ? I thought this had already been covered to stop owners removing failed / clogged particulate filters on early diesels which had these ... you can't remove cats on much after 1990 ...

Looks like a few more 991.2s hitting the market. Perhaps owners seeing that prices have jumped up and thinking it's a sensible time to sell

Where?

OPCs are desperate for stock with only 3 used 991.2s left in the UK. 1 manual and 2 PDKs early first run 2017 cars 5k miles at £145k all of which should sell by weekend as lockdown eases. Due to demand these have risen by £20k just in the last few weeks.

It seems to tbe the case on GT3s and RSs. The RS WP are now selling for £20K more than they were six months ago.

Yes, indeed.

As somebody who bought one two weeks ago, asking prices really have risen 20k. Nuts. For once, I timed that one well!

Timing is all, and a very shrewd purchase indeed.

Not sure how to put it but it sounds more refined, so not so mechanical as the 991.2 does, well, going by this vid. Can we really tell from a vid?

The sound, for me, is not as nice as the previous at the moment.

Agree. But admittedly it is difficult to tell off that one vid.

Sounds almost half way between a 718 GT4 and 991.2 GT3.

Sounds like a 991.3 RS WP/Speedster...... because that’s the layout of the exhaust path. It’s not a step back from those cars. I guess we can expect that there may have been some additional tuning for the desired tones to come through....

Sounds like a post-mezger GT3 to me.... brilliant.

I think it’s sounds amazing from that video, I think they’ve done a great job and feel like the looks are starting to grow on me.
