My engine blew on my 05 c2s this weekend, its at the dealer and may cost me a pretty penny to get a new one in there, an option would be to do an upgrade that way the dealer will work with me... thoughts on the vehicle above?

I do have a winter car but the porsche is/was my daily driver, will this be uncomfortable? I do enjoy the roughness and always drove with stiff suspension mode on in my c2s. How different is the RS from the regular gt3?

any comments are welcome.

Nice car but you could order a new one today for less than US$162,260 (today's exchange rates) even with a $20k markup (which I don't think you have to pay these days). I could be wrong but since the new RS is about to be available, these very high premiums being asked over a regular 997 GT3 are probably unobtainable from buyers.

By the way, how did your motor blow? Oiling problem?

The GT3 or GT3RS is much stiffer than a C2S in sport mode and lower to the ground. Will it be uncomfortable?--not to me but I do have to be careful on the lousy roads in Massachusetts. BUT, and this is simply my opinion, buying the 3 or 3RS is a needless waste of money if you are looking for a daily driver rather than a track car. In addition, since there is no weather sealing underneath the car (that's why GT3 variants have a short rust-through warranty in the States, anyway), driving the GT3 in winter will rapidly shorten its life span.

Differences between a GT3 and GT3RS can be found with a search but the big items are the slightly wider track in the RS, lightweight flywheel, and rear spoiler.

any comments are welcome.

Your best bet is getting a crate motor replacement from Porsche for your C2S cab. Unless you are a track junky AND don't mind driving your winter car more during the shoulder seasons, I suggest you stay away from the GT3 and GT3RS.

Thanks a lot for your detailed reply... I think I need to take one out for a few runs around the block to see if I can live with the stiffness; I'm not a track junkie so I would not be buying it for that purpose. Perhaps a turbo would be a better fit?

I'm still waiting to receive a call back from Porsche on exactly what happened to the engine. see my post in the 997-1 carrera forum which I will update as I go.
