    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    No my friend. I took that Meteor Grey photo myself in Porsche Zentrum Stuttgart.

    Yes, Meteor Grey replaced Seal Grey. The only difference is that Seal Grey has a slightly blue tint in it. Otherwise they are quite similar.

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    AGAIN I SAY WHITE, WHITE AND WHITE !!!!!

    MMD, TRENDS CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME, in the past white was probably the colour for ladies etc (I didnt really knew that !!! ), BUT NOW MY FRIEND, WHITE COLOUR IS FOR THE "MACHOS" AND THEIR BRAND NEW 997 GT3's!!!!

    I think once you see these two pics, you'll proceed and order the beast in WHITE !!!!!

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    Nice pics!

    Anyone have some GOOD Meteor GT3 pics?

    I have found many, but they just don't really show the colour.

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    Here is the first GT3 that I saw.. georgeous. Made me think twice about my choice of white until I saw Colm's car. If I could have TWO GT3s, the second one would be Meteor!

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    WOO... Very Cool!

    Thanks... this colour really looks like one of the Lambo's Grey.

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    I own white so you know my answer.

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    Colm's car (who is Colm by the way - he seems somewhat famous?) very beautiful I have to say, but white is a racing colour and therefore I have to still go with that (I'm also tipsy right now MMD); you can just imagine the blue stripe on the car in white - any metallic gre/ay looks to me too much like a normal road car colour. Insufficiently distinctive - too subtle even - for a *beast* like the GT3.

    Just my 2c.

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    Thanks for the advices, but what about YELLOW??????


    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    ...

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    Thanks for all those pics, Jams!

    I have seen all those pics already, plus some 997 in grey and yellow and white....it is so hard to decide!

    I think yellow and white don't have the texture like the grey. But do you think the grey will look OLD?

    No, it's like a beautifully tailored grey business suit (two buttoned or double breasted of course): classic, perfect, ideal, timeless; never goes out of style.

    I haven't seen meteor grey in person but unless it is one of those colors with a split personality when photographed it'll be a compelling Porsche color for a long time to come.


    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    What do you think MMD?

    Meteor v Yellow?

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    IMO the comparison is so far apart. Speed Yellow will give the car a certain visual character. Meteor grey will give it a totally different exterior character (even though inside, the same ferocious engine beats its rhythm).

    If you were comparing Carrara White vs Speed Yellow OR Meteor Grey vs Slate Grey then you might be comparing colours which are IMHO comparable. Do please excuse my frankness [No offence, just trying to give you some meaningful input], but comparing Speed Yellow and Meteor Grey appears to me to be more a question of indecision/confusion on your part as to what the car should visually be for you.

    I think you need to sit quietly alone without distraction (preferably close your eyes) and ask yourself what feeling you want the GT3 to create inside you (and possibly those close to you whose opinion matters to you). Ask yourself what mental image first made you want to get the car i.e. the impetus which made you feel you couldn't pass another day without having one....it's the catalyst for the release of that passion that truly matters!

    The answer is really inside you...not in some internet poll

    Best of luck - hope you find the answer that is right for YOU!

    Meteor, it's a sharp color. But... .

    You should consider where you live too.

    In LA or South Beach the car culture yellow would be great.

    In my old conservative upscale neighborhood I could NEVER blaze the side streets in a yellow or other flashy-colored machine. The neighbors would wonder WTF happened to my brain; or did I get yet another divorce? Maybe I went out and bought myself smaller, tighter fitting briefs too, which would go along with my new affair... . Just how this neighborhood would think of a yellow Porsche. If the thing had a WING on it I think they'd call the authorities because something "obviously" has gone very very wrong under my roof (of the house).



    Nah, just get what you want. Realize that people react differently in different areas. That's why "conservative" looking stuff is so popular: kinda guarantees a known and safe response from others.

    Yes, you are right.

    In person, I think the Meteor is a sharp colour. And I feel surprise that people said the meteor is close to seal gray? Maybe in the pics, but not in real life.

    Re: help! Meteor or White?

    If I would not go for White I would go for meteor. Definatly not yelow. I am a bit too classic....

    Best regards,

    Florent

    Hi, do you have more pics of this GT3?

    I want to see the interior!

    But don't you think this interior is too busy looking with those red things?

    By the way, I love the red belts in white GT3!

    Thanks again easy rider! You are the man dude!

    Seriously, WHITE is the only one I always wanted for my GT3!

    I was thinking way too much last month...
    I love WHITE GT3!
