You did not expecting! Despite the introduction of the brand-new  Porsche 991 is still secretly a while with a 997 version at this time. And this is like the most expensive 911 version you can currently buy.

For the record: This Porsche is unsuitable  for road use. This 911 GT3 RSR you can still participate in races like the 24 hours of Le Mans and the FIA ​​World Endurance Championship. The 911 GT3 RSR to meet the latest ACO “LM” GTE regulations was it necessary for the RSR up to 48 millimeters wider than last year’s version.

The GT3 RSR is based on the 997 GT3 RS and the back is a 4.0 liter six cylinder boxer who squeezes 460 horsepower. That ability is so “low” because the rule for a restrictor in the air intake is placed. It’s like breathing through a thin straw.


Furthermore, Porsche compared to last year changed the air. Last year there was an air intake on the hood, but for 2012 there are vents in the hips. Like the 911 Turbo 911 GT2 RS.

It was, however, very necessary that Porsche came with an update for the 911 GT3 RSR, because this season they were truly humbled by the brand-new  Ferrari 458 GTC Italia. A racing version of the Porsche 991 we will expect until next year.

And what all the goodies should cost? If you 498,000 euro (+ taxes) leaves at Porsche Motorsport allowed you to pick one. And that is considerably more expensive than the version of this year. In 2011, the price is 410,000 euros and in 2008 he was quite cheap, because when you pay “only” 349,000 euros.

Another Art Car: Porsche GT2 Collection Gomez

The number of art cars on the planet has grown exponentially in recent years, so it seems. However,, this collection, currently on display at the Porsche Museum is definitely worth mentioning. This is because not a complete car, but a decorated hood. And this you can of course create more so every day with something different drives. Customization to the max, Eat That, MINI and Fiat 500!

Of course, it will not be cheap, and it is not very practical, but that’s never really into  art. It just looks cool and is different.


The GT2 on the picture above example very 3D, but there are still many hoods back up only a painter motif has been.

Initiator of this is the Argentine Jorge Gomez, who in this way his love for combining art and Porsche. For the 19 other bonnets are several artists from Uruguay, and Argentina are responsible. Gomez does indeed not without merit, for he himself owns a Porsche 911 GT2.  According to the press release, he mounts the engine covers and occasionally, which of course may well, as long as no objects stuck.

New 911 Carrera S does 7:40 at Nurburgring

And that is as fast as the 911 GT3 from the previous generation (997), and 13 seconds faster than the 997 Carrera S.

Then last night I flipped through Eurosport IAA there was a special going on. Where our heroes all camera video in five parts tinkered together, the TV guys did it a little longer, but that’s not the point. A Porsche-bobo interviewed reported that the new 991 Carrera S rounds the Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 40 seconds was patched. I think new information.


Indeed, this information is quite fresh. Except on TV is also in other media: August Achleitner, “Vehicle Line director at Porsche confirmed above the Australian GoAuto.  Only this round is driven during the test work, and so it is quite likely that no video evidence of it. However, once the car is delivered to the (racing) double  check this course easily. Lots of extra horsepower, he did not (400 hp compared to 385 hp in the 997), so the advantage is largely from other things than power coming.

The copy which was driven through 7:40 is another 20mm lower sports suspension but there were regular tires on it. This time is good rap, and it promises some of the hotter versions to come. Porsche has 7:26 of a bully Nissan (GT-R) will probably clean the visor. Will they be successful? On the answer we have to wait, because it takes a while before the hotter,  lighter, more track-oriented Porsche 991’s are coming.

forming technologies in the production of Such Elements Provides to guarantee of perfect quality and high
operational records.

More details are yet available. Furthermore, in the tuning scene is important to look like the chickens to be, but then agree on the details (specs, interior) to think. Therefore, the preliminary check out pictures. If it’s worth, we are still back in March.
