Some great info on the GT3 RS and the 991.2 from Car and Driver, after an interview with Wolfgang Hatz....

http://blog.caranddriver.com/2016-911-gt3-rs-will-have-a-new-engine-and-possibly-manual-gearbox-option/


Quote:
Beyond this generation of 911–that is, looking to the model we’ll be expecting to see in 2019 or 2020–Hatz said that we’re almost certainly looking at some form of hybrid powertrain to meet emissions targets. But although the Boxster and Cayman will soon receive turbocharged flat-four engines, at least in the lower reaches of the range, he also went on record to say that the 911 will always stick with a six. “We don’t have a problem with a four-cylinder sportscar,” he said, “but never on the 911. The 911 has to remain flat-six.”

Good article, Thumb

There seems to a few mentions towards a manual gearbox and if this RS will be a lot quicker than the regular GT3 there will be no chance of a human keeping up with the pace using a regular manual, it would slow the car down too much. I'm guessing they may step up to a sequential box. Question
