This one is a MY07,just a plain basic Cup car with the usual upgrades(brake pressure sensors,steering angle sensor and blip throttle),same as our other Cup car(MY05).
Handling is surprisingly good for such an old car.
Very little body roll with the AMG springs,the big brakes bite well.
Engine is very responsive and torquey.
Just had a quick spin with it with...
Entertaining to watch,but working with a driver like that is where the fun ends.
It is always the cars fault,never the driver's...
Drove now a bit with it.
Surprisingly nice car to drive given it was engineered over 2 decades ago.
500 and its stable mates:
997 GT3 Cup and 73 RS recreation in the...
Made some minor progress last week and weekend.
-Rebuilt tandem pump,was easy.Only issue was one broken spring on the SLS side and a stuck piston.Got it eventually out and replaced all springs....

Congratulations on the new toy!
They really wake up with a tune.
Amazing platform that is even with serious power reliable.
Good choice over the 360 which will is very expensive regarding...

It seems possible and plausible.
The only other way would be that they switch soon for the race cars to the DFI engines as well and the 991 current CUP and RSR are just now in between cars...

Read article 2 fully, 2.2.3 is very important as well as 5.2
There is no information,all my comments above are based on...

Yes,this is what I am saying.
If this car in the pics is the GT3RS,it will most likely have the old block.
No matter if all other road cars have the new one.
They need a road car with the old...

Let me explain it again:
The 991 GT3 Cup and RSR race cars run the old engine.
It is possible for some series regulations that they have to put the old Mezger engine in a road car.

Turbo has different vents,bigger.
They will need for certain motorsport series homologation a production road car that has the old block...

Think about my post above...
Look at the air vents in the rear bumper...;)
This indicates n/a.
Otherwise it would have massive openings to deal with the heat created by FI..
Why was the 997...

Good chance the 991 road RS is the homologation model for a new 991 race car,as GT race cars have to based on road cars...

Will do it today.

It was absolutely necessary at this point already.
It would have had severe damage(means damaged crank journals or a rod having the urge to see the daylight) within the next 1-2k.
I just wrote...

Not finished yet,but qualifies as badass:
I run a garage for BMW M road cars and Porsche race cars in Finland.
Yes,I do all the engines myself.
Machining and balancing engine parts to my specs is the only thing that is outsourced.

Very nice built and I understand very well how much you like the car with these mods!
Now slap on that pretty cylinder head:D
