I'm just speccing my car and sending the code to every Porsche centre that I can. I will bet that I don't get ONE response from any of them.

Oh well frustrated

2010 Porsche 997 GT3

PostPosted: Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:20 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Interestingly, the UK configurator doesn't allow selection of the Weissach Pack. In case anyone was curious - €17850 extra for that. Throw that and a few other choice options at it and it is a €235k car - if they charged that for them here I reckon that it might even (albeit only slightly) increase the chances of them selling one to normal customers... Question

The WP is £21k and it's a must have option imo and is only available in a few months time, I can spec mine later in the year when WP's available in the UK.

Am sure it’s incredible, fast, amazing downforce and grip etc but does anyone else think that this is starting to look way too fussy with all the vents and spoilers?

I prefer the normal gt3 these days as they are less fussy and bumpy. There is a lovely 991.2 4 litre in light grey down near me at specialist dealers in Yateley
Looks the nuts

Give me a 996 GT3 rs or 997 mk1 any day thanks

Weissach Pack

The use of additional lightweight measures reduces the weight by about 18 kg compared to a 911 GT3 RS with optional club sport package.
Specifically, the Weissach package consists of the following features:
Exterior
- front cover, roof and SportDesign exterior mirror shell in carbon fiber, rear wing in carbon fiber with large "PORSCHE" lettering
Interior
- Rear bolted roll cage made of titanium (titanium), steering wheel covers and shift paddles in carbon fiber, Badge on bezel Cup holder with "Weissach package" logo, headrests with embroidered "Weissach package" logo, floor carpet with reduced trim and 6-point belt for driver and passenger side in black
suspension
- stabilizers and coupling rods on front and rear axle made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CfK)

Note:
Rear roll cage made of Titanium without FIA-GT or DMSB approval and without extension option in front to a full cage. Offer only in conjunction with full bucket seats (standard equipment) or sports bucket seats (order no. P03). The 911 GT3 RS magnesium forged wheels, which are available as an option in combination with the Weissach package, reduce the vehicle weight by a further 11.5 kg.

I have bought three brand new cars from my dealer. A cayenne, 991s and a Macan gts. Still can’t get one.

A well known Rolex dealer, used to send several of their allocation of Daytonas to a used trader for a backhander or two...

Do you think that anything different happens here? Where there's considerable money to be made, I'm afraid people's greed gets in the way at all levels.. Rolling Eyes

Specced my car at dealer yesterday, delivery confirmed middle of may.
Couldn't spec extended range fuel tank which is a big bummer, something to do with positioning of the tank and it only works on LHD drive cars. Also couldn't have roll cage I'm white to match the body, only black or green!
I'm sure I'll get over it when she is here

So you are new to the GT3 then? The larger fuel tank has never been available on RHD cars. 90l was standard on the LHD 996 models and optional on LHD cars only (and not in all markets) since the 997.

There was a larger tank available on some of the 993s as well. That also only fitted in LHD cars.

No I've had a 997 rs gen 2 for 6 years and was under the impression it had an extended fuel tank, if what you say is true then no drama

Surprised
After years of trying, was offered a GT3RS build slot for May delivery about 1 hour ago.

Should be doing triple somersaults all over the place. Finally got to the top of the queue. Dance Tap Clap

However, business circumstances have changed substantially over the past few weeks, and even though the money is there, would probably not be the most sensitive/human thing to roll into my car parking space or be seen around town in a lizard green beast.

So after finally getting there, passed on the offer of a build slot. Strangely, feel comfortable that I made the right decision. Thanked the Dealer Principal for his kind consideration.

Hopefully another slot for a GT car will come up at a more appropriate time before I'm not too old. Old Laughing

Hopefully your slot goes to an enthusiast, not just somebody who wants to flip it. Good luck for next time!!

Thank you - very much appreciated. Laughing

Think I was only offered the build slot because the DP has absolute confidence I wouldn't flip. Next one on the list is an enthusiast according to the DP, so bet he/she now has a massive grin on their faces.
