With that crazy red line I (sadly) suspect this will be a PDK only car, I hope I am wrong

Garage List
Not that it takes away much, but it sounds like it will have a 10k tach, with a 9k redline. Still heady stuff.

It will probably start 'stopping the fun' at 9500.

Most interesting it isn't a DFI engine. An all new engine just for the GT3, very cool.

Don't think so, base 997 GT3 msrp was around $115k. Maybe the 991 GT3 RS will be that much.

i build c2s all day long and they are always about 120-125k long.
c4s is 125k-130k. so i would assume the price to be bumped up to at least 130k base plus options would make this car at least 150k to 160k (including tax that is). But yes, maybe my number is a bit of a stretch.
