    Fantastic car, fantastic job S-397 , match in every aspect the real one, challenging on brakes and throttle (no abs,tc) and more top speed because of the less downforce , very adictive at Nords.

    Fun car! I'd sum it up as satisfyingly challenging!
    Thanks, S397.

    This is a great car.Lines, positioning and braking have to be spot on or it will punish . Get 20 or so laps in and you'll start to love it,I did.

    Interesting mix of, "This car is the bestest!" and "This car is the worstest and Studio 397 is incompetent". The things most of the complainers are making points of are not game breakers and frankly, are not S397's strengths (Sounds). I dont care for Porsche in pretty much any sim I've driven so far, it doesn't suit my driving style. But the guys I know who enjoy the Porsche really think it is the bees knees. I purchased the car for use by the league even though I dont plan on driving it. And I think the price was pretty reasonable to boot.

    Interesting... I was about to post that the above could probably be the 997 version, but apparently the French have the 991 version with those specs:
    https://www.porsche.com/france/moto...rschecarreracupfrance/features/911gt3cup-991/

    According to the "911 GT3 Cup (991)" page of Porsche Germany, the car has 3.8l with 460hp, so that 4l 480hp version for iRacing is probably a Porsche 997 GT3 R, at least that's what in found on the German Wikipedia page.

    The plain "911 GT3 Cup" page of Porsche Germany also states 4l and 485hp, so I guess that would be the actual or upcoming version, whereas S397 chose the previous one.


    Man, this is confusing... :confused:

    I just found something on the english Wiki pages

    At least that clears up my confusion... :D

    It would be nice and helpful if someone from Studio 397 could clarify what exact version they built.

    Take a look at this video...there are many more. The delay between shifts is way too long in the rf2 version, the sound doesn't provide enough gearbox whine and just sounds flat. Compared to every other Cup car, this one probably sounds the worst.

    In terms of the flat6 mod, it's obvious that the engine could be only one part of the truth, the sound quality in total lacks. It's not totally bad, but behind the rest of the sims. Hope this will be changed soon.

    Does this car have such a high camber in real life?
    5/-5?
    I had to lower it a lot to make it drivable
    3.2/4.2
    Then more brake bias in the front
    ARB 3/4

    Warm up the tires, do a few laps and then you smash the hammer.

    As I imagined, this car at Le Mans is something serious...

    Nordschleife + Porsche 911 GT3 Cup = Totally Awesome Blast! The tracks and cars S397 are putting out are just amazing. The AMR GTE and other GTEs, GT3s, with Sebring, VIR, Imola, Le Mans, and Nürburgring and others are just so nice and amazing. Just one plug for a request, please add COTA to the list. Thank you!

    Fantastic car! Being a Porschephile I must admit this is the best Cup car in simracing so far. Every 911 trait is there and if you know how to drive it it is a blast and the car will pretty much do whatever you ask of it - including sideways action. It punishes sloppy driving and requires quicker reactions than the spec sheet would suggest, so don't come at it expecting another GT3 style "Ï'm a racing God from lap one" race car - this is as far from GT3 as one can imagine.

    Concerning versions - the description on s397 site is somewhat confusing starting with describing the 3.8L engine and than going over to the 4.0L it seems that the rf2 version is the 3.8L version with sequential dog-box operated with the paddles.

    iRacing's Cup car is not the GT3 R however since thwe GT3 R is the GT3-class car. Just as the RSR is the GTE/GTLM-class car.
