It's def an end of an era. Turbo M3 and GT3 w/ PDK and electric steering.
this is why there is something radical coming in 2014. instead of developing the 9A1 into the racing motor for the RSR they reused the old Mezger. They had plenty of time to do this already. $10 says Flat-8. 3.9L joint development with new Porsche FF (ferrari fighter). wheel base extension on 991 was necessary for this.

991 GT3 is not cup car in street clothes anymore. its a 991S without back seat.
RS is the civilized version of Cup. I still think they won't offer manual option on the new GT cars.
