finally someone decided to take some of the inside, something no one has yet thought of for some reason despite porsche having left a bunch at a petrol station and having spent the best part of a week driving round san francisco. 918 spyder was on the trailer too.









edited to fix pics.

Looks well boring!
997 GT3 looks far better inside and out, just no longer looks like a race car.

It's quite nice - PDK though, so 997 or better yet 996 GT3RS for me please!

The ducktail with the extra bit on it still does not look right to my eye.

+ centre outlets which is gt3 thing.

Interior not very racy (or even sporty) with the automatic transmission selector and large display screen.

Not a gt3 as we know it, but porsche know their market.

Looks ... Bulky. Sure it'll be crazy fast though. And will post silly 'ring times over the next few weeks.

Let's hope they de-bling the 991 interior (especially the console) for the production GT3s. The 991 dash design is no triumph IMO.

...is that the angle where it is pitch black?

I can't see the likeness myself. I do hope that what I see here will help 997 GT3 prices hold up.

Doesn't press many GT3 buttons for me - but I expect a 7:30s 'Ring time or less if the S can do it in 7:38!

It will, as the donor is. It's a barge.

I reckon that's the +44mm widebody. Wonder if the GT3 and RS will share the same body scratchchin

Loving the thought of it though. 60 will be low 3's and 100 i reckon could be timed at less than 7.

Each incarnation of GT3 has gotten more road friendly and useable with age - 991 with PDK (no heavy clutch) and comfort seats could potentially be as useable as C2S. All Porsche need to do now is offer a comfort, non-RS with rear seat option smile

Whatever that car is, it is using a c4 shell too wide at the hips to be the c2

We don't know if this is a gt3 prototype or an rs, it's just speculation.

Testing hack... Not finished article.

Some clues of the finished article, but you can't make total judgement at this stage.
