THE NEW PFISTER GROWLER

R* Newswire build:

 

9MsV9t7.jpg

k3YQBVe_d.webp?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&

 

Car's base model according to the game files:

 

unknown.png

 

"You prefer the book to the movie. You drink spirits neat. You describe your sense of humor as 'subtle' and your love making as 'imperceptible'. You're The Thinking Person. And you choose handling over speed, control over power, and principle over pleasure. You choose wisely. You choose the Pfister Growler."

 

This new model of Pfister is greatly based on the newest Porsche 718 Cayman.

 

It features a brand new interior based on the newest Porsche 911 interior, which is also shared with the Comet S2 but with extra details like the Pfister brand badge on the steering wheel.

 

Seems to be very competitive within the Tuner class, with a pace on par with the Jester RR according to my limited research.

 

Status: RELEASED

 

Class: Sports and Tuner

 

Price: $1,220,250(trade price) - $1,627,000.

 

Other facts and trivia about this car:

 

Top Speed: 118mph in Los Santos, 121mph in Blaine County.

 

(Downforce based cars reach higher speeds in the countryside due to it being an low air-drag area, speeds were taken on a straight and flat road with all performance upgrades applied)

 

Drivetrain: mid-engined, Rear wheel drive, features a 6-speed gearbox as standard, an extra one is added with any transmission upgrades, top speed is reached at the 6th gear and falls back down to 118mph on the 7th gear.

 

Engine sound comes from the Karin Kuruma, slightly altered to sound a bit quieter, as a reference to the fact that the real life counterpart of this car has options for 4 cylinder engine.

 

Far as performance goes, it handles much better than the Comet S2 but it accelerates slower out of corners, even though both cars have the same top speed on flat roads, on bumpy roads the Growler has a higher top speed meaning that it's a better pick for races.

 

Stock exhaust backfires at any lift off the throttle just like the Comet S2.

 

It has 11 liveries + 5 extra liveries locked away as dripfeed, the final 2 locked liveries are based on the yellow and grey livery of the Porsche Cayman GT4 that competed in the FIA GT4 racing championship.

 

It has no engine model, but you can add anti-sway bars to the rear suspension towers, where the engine would be located(technically speaking the engine is covered).

 

PSA: The lip spoiler options does NOT give the car the traction bonus, you have to use any of the custom spoilers on the spoiler category.

 

My final score to this car is a solid 9/10

 

The only two things holding this car from getting a 10/10 score are the steering wheel blocking the dashboard gauges, and the engine sound + excessive exhaust backfiring and lip spoilers not giving it traction bonus.

 

It would be nice to have the traction bonus with putting a ugly parkbench spoiler on it, so for I'll make do without it until I get enough storage space to make a GT4 duplicate for races.

 

Excluding these factors, it really feels like I'm driving a authentic Cayman and I can safely say they did the Cayman justice, I'm a very happy Porsche fan now.

We don't have many pictures of this beauty yet, but so far I like what I see and I have a soft spot for the 718 Cayman, so obviously this is a instant buy.

 

As a matter of fact, any Pfister in this game is a instant buy and permanent addition to my collection.

 

I really want to see how this baby drives.

Probably my favorite out of the two Porsche's, still I'd rather get a stock Comet Retro...

To be honest this looks like an early build of the car, the ZR-350 also has a bunch of mapping issues with the liveries.

 

I'd expect that to be corrected before the update is released.

 

Or I'll just give it a carbon front splitter anyway.

Haha, that Cayman carried my back throughout most of my first playthrough of Most Wanted back in the day.

 

But I'm making mine factory stock, I'm not a big fan of crazy riced out builds.

i always took the car, and used it to smoke the next one on the list.

jokes aside, we need to make a "blacklist" of racers on the forum. love to relive the idea the Blacklist had, cause it was awesome.

bonus points if #1 uses the R8 Drafter with the Livery. you know the one :)

 

and while i dont like Riced cars, Baron's Cayman S was a very simple visual, compared to everyone else (aside from Bull), and im a f*cking SUCKER for some badass flame liveries

Stoked to see what it looks like stock. R* does go a little overboard with the wacky customization but it's at least good to know there's plenty of potential options to make it unique.

Yeah - it might be like certain cars with glaringly low-res decals, but where the actual sculpt and design are perfectly good, so I've just gone for a stock look.

 

Speaking of, I do hope there are some decent front bumper options - particularly those with body colour struts, like on the 718 T & S models, or the previous-gen GTS:

1280px-Porsche_Cayman_GTS_-_Mondial_de_l%27Automobile_de_Paris_2014_-_001.jpg

 

 

 

If I can get that kind of look out of it, it's a Day 1 purchase, and immediately becomes the Best Pfister Ever™ (IMO, anyway...). :p

I think you mistook it for the other Pfister the one that resembles a 911 and not a Cayman.

Yup - sounds like you're talking about this, which is the new 911-looking one:

Come to think of it, have we even got any pics of the back end of the 718-y one?

No, don´t think so. Only somewhat of the side and rear fender on one of the banner-like pictures in the article. Some people still think it´s one car but like, it´s literally not.

Possibly the new 992 turbo S?

Look at the colored splitter: The rainbow part of the livery is misaligned.

That livery is definitely inspired by the Apple livery on the RWB 911.

Which is an homage to the Kremer 935 sponsored by Apple that ran in IMSA Camel GT races in the 1980's. Don't bruh me in some other thread dude when you don't know jack.

Lots of people with Porsches have done tribute liveries to this thing.

Somebody forgot to mirror/ 180° rotate the UV/ UVW mapping on the texture? ':/ Either way, QA was flopping here... -.-'

 

Presuming that the texture is already mapped (at the individual part level), depending on the software in use, that should generally be less than ten minutes to adjust and test/ review. 🤦🏽‍♂️
