“The future of the flat six 911 will largely be reserved for highly specialised GT versions” There’s no such thing as a quiet year for Porsche. 2018 is ramping up to be huge as the company looks to shape its showrooms, production line and all-round infrastructure for the apparent great coming of electric-powered cars. As Total 911 previously reported (months ahead of the crowd, too), Porsche has already let slip its first all-electric sports car is well ahead of schedule, Mission E’s original 2020 deadline now set to arrive by 2019 at the latest. Porsche’s electric push is much larger than anticipated, too. Pledging to build 20,000 Mission E cars a year (which will sit just below the Panamera in the Porsche model pyramid), €700 million is being invested at Zuffenhausen to…

First two titles secured for 991 RSR Notable first season success for mid-engined 911 racer in United States The fruits of Porsche’s ground-up rebuild of its 911 race car are already beginning to appear after the 991 RSR secured the prestigious North American Endurance Cup for Weissach. Incorporating the long-distance classics of Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen and Petit Le Mans, the North American Endurance Cup sees manufacturers’ GT cars put to the test, with over 52-hours of racing across the United States. Porsche’s 510hp mid-engined RSR emerged victorious in the GTLM class of the competition, with Patrick Pilet and Dirk Werner also taking the drivers’ titles for Porsche. The RSR’s two titles were secured at the ten-hour Petit Le Mans race at road Atlanta, which saw LMP1 drivers Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber join…

WEC: what the changes means for us As the fallout from Porsche’s LMP1 exit continues, Ben looks at what the WEC’s shake-up means for him in GT-Am As I write this over the Fuji race weekend, we still have two rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship to run but attention is already on next year. Actually, make that the next two years as the released calendar spans both 2018 and 2019, with two Le Mans 24 Hours and a surprise addition in the US. They are calling it a ‘superseason’ as the championship undergoes a radical change to put more emphasis on Le Mans, the blue riband event. In order to finish a championship at Le Mans when it was only announced in September has necessitated a little creative thinking – but…

911R v 991.2 GT3 Touring Dear Sir, Last month I read with interest your star letter from 991.2 Carrera GTS owner Jerry Nowak, who voiced his own personal disdain over the GT3 Touring. While I have a little empathy for his situation, it is important to remember that the process for buying a GT car from Porsche is different to buying a Carrera variant. Put simply, with a Carrera or even Turbo, you can design your car on the online configurator, send it to a Porsche Centre and, provided Porsche is still making the car, they can give you a build slot. With a GT car, you have to put down a deposit months before the car is officially released – don’t even waste your time with a letter of intent any more. I’m…

Scott Gardner Job Title Gold Diagnostic Technician Place of work Porsche Centre Bournemouth, UK Time at Porsche 11 years Q: I am presently the very proud owner of a 991.1 4GTS coupe with a PDK transmission. My car has a central radiator. However, I noticed that the new 991.2 GTS lacks the central radiator in USA specification. My first Porsche was a 997.1 2007 C4S with a Tiptronic transmission. That car also had a central radiator. However, I noticed that the central radiator was deleted from the 997.2 generation C4S. I have searched for articles on the subject of Porsche 911 water-cooling and I could not find an answer. Why is it deleted from certain models? Julio Quintero Scott’s answer: “The water-cooled 911 range does vary for central radiator fitment and is purely down to the spec and model.…
