Can't you see it's a kit car! Sheesh!

















Just kidding. That looks freaking sweet. Have they already made it known what kind of increase in performance we should expect?

The article says the GT3 will come equipped with PDK. As far as HP goes, more than 450HP is expected.

Front bumper integrated lights are hideous, and I hate those taillights.

I don't know how is it possible to hat the new 991. I am a 911 hater and never liked the look of the car, though like all the rest of its technical features, but the new 991 is after the CGT the best Porsche ever, and the new Cayman follows the same path.

that wing may be functional, but i prefer the 997.2 gt3 style wing that sits up higher.. a lot more racy

So sick. I doubt they will offer PDK. I too prefer the higher 997.2 RS wing, but I bet they have a 991 RS in the works as well.

This is probably going to be the closest thing to perfection on the road when it's released.
I do hope it gets PDK because PDK is the single best dual clutch out there and has only upped its game. The 991 GT3 is going to be another masterpiece in the long lineage of GT cars from Porsche and while the performance with the 6mt will be epic, it will be even more so with PDK's capabilities (although not AS connected of an experience).

991 is amazing.

I will believe the pdk rumors when I see it. I still think it is going to be a manaul, it better be.

There's definitely going to be a PDK option available, and I'm sure at a higher premium than their current PDK because they know it would sell. I actually want a PDK option offered, I'd see more than one GT3 every three years on the streets.

Just not feeling the look...

It looks more along the lines of a "super car on the street" rather than a "race/track car on the street".
