Default The US Launch

The launch event during the NYIAS was well organized for the PCA members in cooperation between Porsche AG, NA and PCA, over 100 members enjoyed the personal attention and the chance to get up close and personal with the new car.

The posture and stance of the 991 GT3 best experienced in person as it is the case almost always. The way it looks to hug the ground is very well balance with increased width both front and rear, and the longer length and wheel base. But there is more to its posture than just the increased dimensions of the car; I am not certain, but I would believe if the ratios of the door height to side window height has been changed in a fashion that the cockpit of the car looks lower overall. This combined with what appears to be a decrease windshield angle and increase wheel arche arcs, just make this car work for me even in stand still. Of course, I do not know if any of those ratios or angle have actually been changed, but it appears that way.

The wheels's finish and design really captured my attention:
