Someone got their hands on the official pamphlet. I like it.
WOW, looks great... :icondrool :icondrool
Something like this would have looked much better.
wow couldnt have asked for a better car. the only problem is the new exhausts in the middle of the car
that is awesome, just like the GT3 Cup Car.
I like this much better than the 997 turbo! I think this looks HOT and still has that 997 characteristic in its style. Like I said before the new turbo looks too 996. This though is super hot!! I would have a hard time believing that the next M3 CSL will be on par with this.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!

... I'm with you Matt, I think I like it more than the Turbo (although I still love the Turbo)!
We'll see. Remember, the new M3 will have 2 more cylinders and more displacement on its side this time (whereas it had the disadvantage in the engine department last time around). 415 horsepower is great from 3.6 liters, but the M3 will probably be 4.0+ and a V8. I'm not sure why they stuck with 3.6 liters instead of tuning up the 3.8 from the Carrera S. Let's not forget the next CSL will probably have R-compound tires again as well.
I suppose it will depend on how light they can make the csl and how much power they push out of that 4.0 litre!
WOW amazing.. i love white porsches.. and this one is just perfect
Is this more powerfull and faster than the Turbo?
Turbo has 473 hp and better acceleration... but on the track this will be faster.
ohh allright..well then i choose the turbo cause its hotter imo.. more luxurius.. and i drive more on ordianary roads.. and guess its better for that
Both car are unbelieveable. I'd rather have the GT3 just the same.
I always liked the Turbo, until this one. I hope it wil grow on me, cause it has a lack of styling IMO. GT3 is superb!!
Hot damn! This car is phenomenal! The styling, the engine, the interior - the whole package represents everything that Porsche is all about; engineering at it's finest. This, my friends, is the best of the best. This is the pinnacle - this is Porsche.
I can't get over those engine figures - a whopping 115HP per litre. With a 8400rpm cut-out. And even with those high-revving capabilities, it still has a heck of a lot of torque, 405Nm available from a low-ish 5500rpm. That is just...incredible.
The design is beautiful as well - arguably the best looking 911, perhaps ever? I had initially expected the GT3 to have the same look as the optional Sports pack available on the GT3, and having seen it in real life, it wasn't all too appealing on the eye. But while the GT3 has a similar look, the smaller details, like the black lip, the vents in the rear bumper and the central exhausts, differentiate it from the optional Sports pack, transporting it to a higher level of aggressiveness and pure beauty. It's fabulous. The interior is beautiful as well - again, similar to the 997 Carrera, but the gauges look good, and those Carrera GT seats give it that little extra 'something'.
Forgive me, I can't stop talking about this. But you can understand how good this car is going to be. I can't wait.
That makes sense... the GT3 is track-oriented, Turbo is more for your every day thrills.
My sentiments on the 996TT until I drove it.
wait it has goes 193 mph......and the Turbo goes 192 mph..............hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....maybe it slightly slower cuz of aerodynamics???
I wonder if this car will get the DSG box at some point?
Isnt that an Audi transmission, or does porsche call theres the same thing?
