    don´t think so as the capacity of the well-known six-cylinder boxer engine increased from 3.8 to 4.0-litres. After another reduction in the size of the air restrictors for the 2009 season, the engine now delivers around 450 hp (331 kW) at 7,800 revs per minute and develops a maximum torque of 430 Nm at 7,250 rpm. The rev limiter of the efficient six-cylinder unit kicks in at 9,000 rpm.

    Yea the horsepower of the RSR has been dropping every generation, and the HP of the production GT3 has been growing. The gap is only 15hp now.
  3. now if they could only drop the 500 pounds between the two :p
  4. thats pretty hot
  5. OMG, it's so different that I'm not even sure if it really is a 911. It's so radical and groundbrekaking for a Porsche that I could easily mistake it for a Spyker or Maserati <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>
  6. the whole Porsche success story is based on the 911 design,
    absolutely no reason to change it completely,
    same as the basic falt-6 engine,
    still the best in the World for 6 decades now!
  7. the basic 911 shape is very nice - all they have to do is not mess up the details.

    credit to them though, theyve have managed to mess up this simple task
  8. I have nothing against the basic Carrera -- in fact I quite like it. Shit starts to get rough when they add things to make upper models different from the base car. The bumpers, wing and air intakes all look like afterthoughts and don't blend well with the car.
  9. correct
  11. i actually like it better than the previous one.
  13. Looks more focused than the previous model for some reason. Good job Porsche, as always.
  14. I love the rear view. But the front, not so much.
  16. Yeah. Why so much hate in this thread?

    Such a hot car! I'm anxious to see the facelifted RS and GT2
  17. I'm really surprised of 3 things. They haven't enlarged the motor to 4.0L as in the new RSR, they haven't given it the direct injection from the new Carreras/Boxsters, and they haven't fitted it with PDK.
  18. 4.0l might bring it to close to GT2 maybe? Or maybe they'll put a 4.0l in the RS. Let's hope so <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Direct fuel injection would be a smart move. I wonder why they haven't done this.

    And PDK in a GT3? This is a drivers car <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
  19. I've got one minor objection: The rear lights are to edgy and don't really match the rest of the car. But it's all good.
  20. one in matte black please..
  21. Same here. And really like those wheels.
  22. What's with all these people suddenly jumping on the "all 911s look the same and I hate it" bandwagon? It's usually just a couple of people who troll every 911 post, looks like they have a band of followers now.

    The 911 is the same basic shape because it's what Porsche's customers want, and it's extremly successful. Not like anyone complaining is in the market for a car like this anyway.
  23. You know, now that you mention it, the RS is the road car used to homologate the RSR race cars, so I'd expect to see those changes made for that model then.
