There’s a flavor of the iconic 911 for everyone. A newly introduced GT3 RS reigns supreme, but since the entire run of GT3 RS models (as well as the 911 GT3 it’s based on) is sold out, we say drive one if you can and then keep an eye on Craigslist. The GTS model has the most performance you can get without the help of forced induction, and the Turbo S model is the horsepower king. We love manual transmissions, but Porsche’s PDK automatic transmission is really, really good.

    A question came up at a recent cars and coffee, and I’d like to know your opinion – plus those of any others who wish to get involved. It all started when we saw a manual 991.2 GT3 for sale. The owner wanted £140k for it.

    Somebody made what I thought was a good point: why not buy a Carrera T and save yourself the best part of £60k? I am in a position to buy a GT3 (I’ll likely have to settle for a 991.2 as I do not have a relationship with any dealer, so I’m not even bothering trying to secure a 992) and it really got me thinking. Everybody is quick to chase the latest GT car, but is a GT3 really double the car of a Carrera T? I’d think not. I also think the Carrera T has taken its big hit, whereas the GT3 WILL come down over the next year or so, and I’m not really interested in losing out on residuals. So, what do you think? As a toy for pure enjoyment, is the GT3 really worth the big stump up over a Carrera T?
    • As with any 911, it all comes down to how you’ll use it. If you want a show-stopping 911 that’s good for gentle drives in sunnier climates, the TargaAs with any 911, it all comes down to how you’ll use it. If you want a show-stopping 911 that’s good for gentle drives in sunnier climates, the Targa makes a compelling choice. If you’re a circuit junky intent on being the fastest at the track day, you’ll need a GT2 RS. Similarly, there’s a place in the lineup for both a 991.2 GT3 and a Carrera T, particularly if the GT3 is a Clubsport with PDK. However, assuming both the Carrera T and GT3 are manual (and the GT3 is a Comfort spec to be as comparable as possible), the GT3 is a complete reworking over the Carrera T. Its motorsport engine is far superior than the turbocharged engine in the Carrera T. We think the former is the best engine in any road car, ever. The GT3’s six-speed manual is also vastly superior to the Carrera T’s seven-speed. A GT has and always will carry a cache of being a fine performance machine, whereas some dealers have already commented that the Carrera T is a hard sell as not everybody understands the car.
      The reality is both cars will make for a cracking driving machine for Sunday blasts and continental road trips, but you’d really have to be extremely convinced by the Carrera T’s ability to perform to pass up the scintillating 991.2 GT3.

    NEW GT3 CUP REVEALED / News The latest news from the fast-paced #Porsche world. #Porsche-911-GT3-991.2 / #Porsche-911-GT3 / #Porsche-911-991 / #Porsche-991 / #Porsche-991.2 / #Porsche-911-GT3-Cup-991.2 / #2016 /

    Porsche’s new GT3 Cup car gives us a hint of what a road-going secondgeneration Porsche-991-GT3-991 might look like…

    Alongside the E-Hybrid and 919 Hybrid on the Porsche stand at the Paris Motor Show (right) was the brand-new secondgeneration 991 GT3 Cup racing car. The car has been completely reworked by the Porsche motorsport department to fall in line with the newest generation of production-style GT racing across the globe.

    An aluminium-steel composite construction ensures maximum rigidity and a lightweight body, resulting in the car weighing in at 1200kg. It is powered by a naturally aspirated four-litre flat-six producing 485hp and, thanks to a redesigned aerodynamics package, it is already producing faster lap times than its forebear, we’re told.

    This latest #Porsche-911-GT3-Cup car follows a string of successful variants, which started with the 996 in 1998 since which some 3031 units have been delivered. Significantly, the new car as shown at Paris hints at what a road-going face-lift car might look like. Completely redeveloped, this latest 911 GT3 Cup car will take to the starting grid of the world’s race tracks in #2017 . It features a range of innovative details designed to improve its efficiency and engine performance, ensuring increased durability and reduced maintenance costs.

    A valve drive with rigidly mounted rocker arms and a central oil feed are employed for the very first time. Alongside that an integrated oil centrifuge optimises oil defoaming in the engine, and a crankshaft with increased rigidity appears. On the outside a new front apron is joined by a fresh rear end to improve downforce aiding traction and performance. Talking of downforce, the car’s prominent 184cm-wide rear wing has been retained from the previous model.

    The wheel dimensions are also unchanged: the single-piece 18-inch rims with centre lock are shod with vast Michelin racing slicks. The driver is protected by a solid safety rollcage and an innovative, bucket-style racing seat that is moulded around the head and shoulder area. An enlarged rescue hatch in the roof sits in line with the latest FIA standards, making driver extraction in the event of an accident easier.

    The GT3 Cup is built on the same production line as the 911 road car at Zuffenhausen. Its tuning is performed at the Weissach motorsport centre, where vehicles are also thoroughly tested by a professional race driver prior to delivery to customers.

    As Porsche has built 3031 units of the 911 GT3 Cup (996, 997 and 991) since 1998, that makes it the most-produced GT racing car in the world. Initially the new car will appear in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup series in support of the F1 calendar, in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland, and in North America before spreading to the rest of the world’s Porsche Cup championships, including the UK’s Carrera Cup GB, in #2018 .
