I wonder whether the facelift C2 will be a real alternative to pre-facelift C2S with xenon's as standard and power boost?

Some nice mods... I especially like the sound of the full width rear reflector for the 4wds.

Targa 4s with all the trimmings inc PDK could well make a 'perfect car' (see my other thread) but a little out of budget...

Well I'm first on the list at my local OPC so I'll soon find out hopefully. Smile

2003 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk2

PostPosted: Fri Apr 25, 2008 11:52 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

the power increases seem to reflect the new direct injection engine tech introduced across the range

- 3.6l 345 bhp = 95 bhp/litre
- 3.8l 385 bhp = 101 bhp/litre

although looks like they have still kept the slightly 3.6 detuned to create the model range....

so an extra 30 horse for the 3.8, so what does that mean for the 3.6 415bhp GT3

MUST mean a 3.8 on the cards with close to 440+bhp ?

That's what I understand to be the case. Just speculating of course but that is the general consensus from the enthusiast and my local OPC. I think you're close with that prediction.

and if you look down the list of updates for the range, apart from the add on's

the other big 2 Question will be the braking and aerodynamic system, to see if there any changes ?

I want to see a pic of the rear reflector Cool Any of you photoshop gurus care to give it a go?

The direct injection engines will produce more power with less fuel consumption.

Love the 'economy change up' light too Floor

I assume though with the £ so weak, new 911 prices will be going up. :cry:
