    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Discussed the GT2's lower back during lunch with my dealer. We agreed that the best would be to go down to the exlusive departement and make the final spec together with them, in order to find a way to make this ugly piece of plastic "disappear".

    One of my oldest contacts in the Swedish Porsche organization will jump ship and join forces with the McLearen/Bentley  dealer. So guess I will have to try the "Spaceship" during the next coming year....smiley

    But since he's not yet started and there could be a month or two before he is in place, I'll guess there will be a 825, 975LT or maybe even a 1043 LT Spider that I will test drive...???!!

    It's very hard to try to like that front on the 720S, can't get over the headlight  recessed holes...

    I don't love the look of the headlights either, but at least they are functional this time.  On the previous cars they were shaped for no other reason than to evoke the brand's logo (and they were not beautiful either)...

    That is very true, being functional does give it respectable excuse, stll doesn't make them pretty but still...

    I almost bought one of those blue GTs last week. Reallllllly nice looking car and color (Pacific Blue), especially with the light interior. It will be close to Winter soon though, so couldn't pull the trigger only to garage it again.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I just got an update from my dealer who says that they still don't have the information from Porsche about how many they will get so have not committed cars to anyone. He says Porsche keep making different noises. This may be treated with a pinch of salt as he may just be keeping me quiet gently !

    On another note I am going to Frankfurt, can anyone advise on how i can get access to the Porsche stand, UK dealers seem to have zero sway - Short of me dangling a couple of sets of Porsche keys at the gate, can anyone help/advise ?

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    First post here but been lurking for a long long time. 

    I received an email 3 days ago from a dealer in the DC metro area about 2 available allocations for the GT2RS, even though I never bought from that specific dealer nor am I interested in the car. Just found it a bit strange as I've never ever received such an email for any other car. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Very strange for a sold out hard to get car, maybe the increased completion in that $300k range and the dubious looking GT2RS are making a dent in the speculators.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    That is Porsche of Arlington, VA if anyone is interested. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Anyone heard of any bona fide 'ring lap times yet? Kindve curious to see how fast :D

    That's because the dealer will not be selling the car at MSRP. The email is the start of an auction with the car going to the highest bidder regardless of past relationships.Smiley

    I think this will have to be my approach "I have a GT2RS on order but am unlikely to be offered one" Smiley

    Great suggestion, I just rejoined, it looks like I was last a member in 2008 with a Carrera GT registered as my Porsche  !

    Hope the membership card gets to me in time.

    I expect that to happen in the next 9 days, because it will be strange not to advertize it at the IAA 2017...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Time to finalyse my spec on Wednesday. The Swedish cobfigurator lack a lot of options, but have been cruising around the German as well, so.....

    Regarding colors, I have concluded that among the ordinary, only black would work for me. However, I will se if I can find a way to get the sea blue that Throt found somewhere on the web (see page 5 in this thread. By the way, you don't have the color code Throt?). Would be somewhat boring to have two cars only separated by the size of the wing standing in front of my house, since my 991.1 GT3 is black and will stay with me.

    Been on RT for some time now and I'm full of respect for the knowledge you all have regarding cars and details about them, so I hope you could help me now. I guess some of you have had the time to go deeper in to the details regarding the GT2 RS than me, so please let me know if anyone of you have found any details or "must have" specification that you think I need to consider when finalizing my spec.

    Thanks in advance for your help!


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Have you been able to them to paint the bottom part of the rear bumper? if they do, then you have a lot more freedom in choosing colors then and not just black to hide it.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    No conformation regarding that yet, so.....yes


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Would you consider getting it painted at the Porsche dealership after it arrives? will it match 100% or is the material of the bottom half of the bumper different than the upper half?

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    No, that is not an option. Original all the way for me. I will, however, push hard on wednesday, for me to be able to have a chance to sit down with Porsche exclusive to discuss this before the car is built. I'm going for Weissach,so still have some time for this, since the W production is planned to start in February.

    But as you so wisely point out, if that option opens up, the color choices is on a totally different levelkiss


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I reckon if you opt for Black painted magnesium wheels and the Weissach pack the back wouldn't even look too bad, at least not in my eyes?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Agreekiss That is how it is spec'ed right nowwink

    But if it is possible, I would really want to try to find another color for this car, since I'm not Whoopsy and think it would be boring with all my cars in black, even if I agree with him and really think that a black Porsche is a good choice. And even he has left the all black with his spec of the special edition of the Turbo S.

    I think that a good and quit nice looking alternative to black on black is Throts picture of a sea blue version on page 5 in this thread.

    choices choices choices.....heart


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Porsche should offer the 911 GT2 RS with this Gulf paint scheme...
