Guess the cooling air comes from the turbo-aping holes in the flanks so these will assist removal of the hot air from the bay...

Probably using Bernoulli's principle to draw out the hot air with the airflow over the rear wing.
My guess is that the conventional engine lid design on previous gen's, wasn't as effective as the rear wing seems to be higher on this 991RS, probably bringing the transition point further forward on the rear screen so laminar airflow is reduced by the engine intake. Also the Side scoops also provide a fair bit of cold ram air to overcome any air-intake issues.

I think it's air in at the sides and out on the top. Either that or it's a sub woofer..

Thanks fellas for all the kind comments...it's been one hell of a day !.
The Porsche configurator was up after the press conference and rather
frustratingly it's not up anymore...it's probably crashed.

Apart from their 918 customers taking up 'their option' to buy the new car,
there were 28 other hopefuls...and luckily for me I got the nod, probably
because they know that I'm a certifiable lunatic.
I do need to configure the car reasonably quickly, and that'll be a load of
fun. I remember well, taking two weeks to sort out the spec on my 997
GT3 gen2...that cost me four extra months waiting time.

Delivery dates...they don't have a clue, but I feel it unlikely that i'll
get to see it till the early Autumn...just hope that it'll be late summer...

Thumb

I really am buzzing, as that was some wait. Grin

So tardy of them though - the German site had it at lunch time Embarassed

So wish I had ordered one 4 years ago too right now...

Kudos to Brendon Hartley on the microsite video for using the spoiler as a table to eat off of. I've done that with both of my GT3s - a testament to the versatility of a car thats purpose is to have your cake and eat it on road and track. Thumb

Finally here! I'm not sure about the styling right now, I think it will have to grow on me. Once I see Chris Harris and a few others pawing it it will probably grow on me then.

Congrats to the lucky so and so who got one, you'll be popular at car meets!

Air intakes for engine have been from the top grill previously (all variants).

This is the first time the side vents have been used for ram air engine induction (Turbo model vents, in comparison, are for intercooler air wash).

Now there is no "mechanical" reason for top forward facing vents, the repurposing to heat extraction (along with under wing grills) requires rear facing vents.

And no decals Dont know . Perhaps with all the vents even Porsche thought it would be too much.

Lets just hope that the release of the 991 GT3 RS allows a trickle down of the older models to enable others to enjoy them.

Only one criticism, no stick Grin
