As first deliveries of Porsche’s 991.2 GT3 with Touring Package take place, there has been much conjecture – particularly online – as to whether the car has legitimately watered on the fireworks of the halo R. As we know, these two flatback 911s have much in common, being lightweight, rear-drive, manual 991s with a 4.0-litre, 500hp, naturally-aspirated flat six. It’s not hard to see how enthusiasts are questioning why the R is still valued at more than double the Touring. However, there’s more to consider. The R is a numbered-production special, giving it collector’s appeal, and its spec shows a greater commitment to engineering finesse: it has a lighter body than the Touring, with a magnesium roof, and also boasts a single-mass flywheel. Of course the big question is: how do…

992 GT3 spotted in early testing First prototype gives early clues the next Porsche GT3 will be turbocharged Total 911’s spies have uncovered what appears to be a very early test mule of the 992-generation GT3, with key design cues set to confirm rumours the car will be turbocharged for the first time. Although the prototype appears to be clad in a wider Turbo body shell (GT3s currently utilise a mid-width Carrera 4 body, sitting in between narrow-bodied Carreras and the max-width Turbo), the Turbos are well known not to sport centre-locking wheels until very late in their test phase. The centre-locking wheels on this mule therefore suggests the car is very likely not a Turbo, with changes at the rear of the car pointing to the likelihood of it being a GT…

Factory RSR triumphant at Sebring Porsche Motorsport North America claim first and third in 12-hour Florida epic Porsche’s GT team secured a fantastic double podium after a once-round-the-clock race at Sebring in round two of the 2018 IMSA SportsCar Championship. The #911 car of Patrick Pilet, Nick Tandy and Frédéric Mackowiecki took the chequered flag in first place after a scintillating 328 laps of racing in glorious spring weather in Florida. The sister #912 of Earl Bamber, Laurens Vanthoor and Gianmaria Bruni crossed the line in third place to join their teammates on the podium and move Porsche up to second in the manufacturer’s standings. After starting down in sixth and seventh on the grid, the two 991 RSRs promptly made up two positions in the first lap, with Vanthoor’s #912 car taking…

Revving up in the new RSR Ben’s back for another assault of the FIA World Endurance Championship with Gulf Racing I don’t know what’s up with the weather in the UK at the moment but, as someone who prefers sun to snow, I can tell you I can’t wait for the summer to arrive. Of course, the closer we get to summer, the closer we get to the European motorsport season, and the good news on that front is that I have firmed up my deal to return to the FIA World Endurance Championship with Gulf Racing. I’ll be back as the team’s ‘Pro Gold’ driver alongside owner Mike Wainwright and former Porsche Supercup and V8 Supercar star Alex Davison, but this time at the wheel of the very latest version of Porsche’s…

the secret rs owner

How I got my 991.2 GT3 RS Notoriously hard to acquire, Total 911’s secret columnist sheds some light on getting a new RS… I’m fortunate enough to be getting a 991.2 GT3 RS in the near future – very near, in fact. It’s an April build, and could already be put to good use by the time you’re reading this column. I’m already a GT3 and RS customer of my local OPC, and with the impending RS that will be ten cars purchased within the last four years, making me one of their top customers in volume terms at least. I first registered my interest in this particular model before the 991.1 GT3 RS was launched, but that doesn’t mean a great deal – no deposit was asked for as the new model…
