    Yeah it’s everywhere today. What a machine. Comes with a nice matching PD watch as well.

    The more track-focused they make the GT3 and RS cars, the less interesting they get to me. Once these cars lose road-tripability I just couldn't care less. One drive in New York would wreck this thing, and that can't be said of past GT3s.

    These aren’t driven exactly. Built for the track and a few road models for super collectors who never drive em. Nice flagship car that stimulates sales of the regular models.

    I had a chance to sit in a used 2018 GT2RS Weissach Edition (1 of 1000 made) the other day. The car looked like it was barely driven, forgot to check the miles, but it couldn't have been much.

    That’s true. Even less interesting

    My favorite part about this new RS is that when you look at the splitter, barge boards / turning vanes around the wheels, diffuser and various other aero bits hanging off the car, they’re not carbon fibre like they would be on a Ferrari, Lambo or even Mercedes. They’re made of really cheap and nasty plastic that feels like junk when you touch it.

    Its made of that because when you rip it off driving over a kerb or flying through kitty litter, you grab the piece dangling off, twist it, rip it off, throw it away and keep driving. Then you go and order another one for $80 and screw it back on. One of Trev’s mates has an AMG GTR Pro and is on his third carbon front splitter, many thousands of dollars every time. Porsche know people will drive their cars hard and make the sacrificial / fragile bits unpainted and cheap intentionally. Its a great idea.

    Same on my Shelby GT350. But I somehow doubt the Porsche's plastic bits are $80 like the Ford. :rolleyes:

    $80 was my last front splitter on the 991 C2S with club discount, it’s unpainted plastic and they installed it for free, online list price is $265 so they probably did it cost or something.

    It’s a pretty big piece though, and that same piece is literally many thousands on the AMG

    How’s it running? Another watch friend of mine in a different group bought one and it’s already grenaded a transmission

    A C2S is one thing, I think a GT3RS would be a bit more, just have a feeling Porsche is gonna charge that "GT" tax. But certainly not like a carbon piece that's for sure.

    It's running just fine. But it's only been on the track a few times, and it was years ago, I'm getting too old for that stuff. Spending more time on watches now. LOL

    Even the GT3RS parts are still cheap, here’s the side aero pieces on the previous GT3RS, $195 retail a piece

    https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/991RSSPTR.html

    Underbody spoilers for GT3RS are $46 retail

    https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/sku991gt3ubs.html

    Whole front splitter is $480 retail and a pretty large piece

    https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/SKU991RSLIP.html

    They really don’t care about making money off them as its better for marketing purposes for the cars to be used and seen which is why the dealers discount these wear and tear pieces so much as well.
