    Grant, Manthey offers Pepita inserts for the LWB seats, would be my choice immediately to get rid of that stripe and add sone cool to the interior. 

    Price is 1350 euro 

    Ok, let me rephrase that, I'd get it immediately if they didn't overcharge. 😔

    It's actually EUR 2'500. Just discussed this today with them.

    I've also seen their black GT3 with the golden wheels, looks sick. The wheels are their magnesium variant.

    Any company that bothers to make replacement LWB cushions should offer additional lumbar support (my one complaint about those seats).  I might have some made with custom internal cushions - better form and function...

    Mike, can you confirm if it's black or black metallic ? Thanks

    It's a wrap, the car is actually grey.

    Yeah, there is a US company that does it too (also not cheap)

    can someone post a pic of these inserts?? thanks

    Nick,

    what dos your delivery report say?  Sky's report update yesterday is still 8 Sept at dealer inventory


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Watt, sad to say your delivery report is wrong. The notice from PCNA was clear. No US car will be completed or shipped before middle of September. For an example, my car according to the latest dealer report will enter production september 1st and shows completion on September 15th.

    Now we all know how much Porsche loves me. indecisionYet, unless they are confusing me with the other Nick,  I doubt Porsche would spend 15 days building my car. I am not that good of a customer. 

    I suggest you tell your dealer to upgrade his system. No way your car gets to the US September 8th.

    Nick,

    Watt, this is the notice US dealers received. It's possible Porsche can start building the car sooner but it will not complete production until mid September.

    U.S. spec MY2018 911 GT3 production will be delayed until mid-September. No U.S. GT3’s will be shipped out of the
    factory until September.



    Dealers will see two different types of delays in PVMS.

    Vehicle production dates in PVMS will be pushed back. These new completion dates should be an accurate estimation of the revised production date.
    Vehicles may enter production in the system, but will not complete production (CP8) until mid-September


    Please contact your Regional Manager with any questions.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Haha Nick,

    In the markets, I bet heavily and asymmetrically against those who see their knowledge as "perfect".  If you were a close friend, we could put up a USD 6 figure even bet, but Sky wants you to have your Starbucks money, and he really could care less when his car arrives as he can't drive. so he has no downside.

    See you in September!

    Yeah, I quite liked the idea of chalk, but then saw Fashion Grey and Chalk next to eachother at a dealer. In the showroom they looked very similar, but in daylight the chalk felt a bit washed out. The touch of yellow in Fashion Grey gave it a bit of warmth and give it a certain something extra.

    Watt, I hope I am wrong and Porsche changed its position regarding when to ship cars to the US. Word is a similar delay occurred with the .1RS. Porsche compensated those who had their cars delayed to the tune of several thousands of dollars. Not a bad price for the delay.kiss

    Gauss, you're right the GT3 needs color. Chalk, greys or even black mask the styling cues of the car. Be bold and pick a color that represents the car for whait is; FUN! Step out of your comfort zone. kiss

    Hehe, yes you are right. Unfortunately Porsche only offers Red, Yellow and Blue. I had red already, I don't like blue on a sportscar, and I don't have the courage to go with yellow Smiley

    Thanks Boris. I've watched it already. Not much useful stuff (we don't know already) in that video other than the shots starting at 8:00.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    If its a choice between black or yellow, go with yellow. Great color on a Porsche. Only problem will be the interior. However, by the time you spec your car Porsche will be allowing many more options for the interior.kiss

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Just got more information from my dealer and it's getting worst. My car will now be completed on September 15th. However, it will not board a ship unit October 13th. More than likely it will be stored in an outside lot. The date for my delivery is now November 24th.mail

    What really gulls me is other guys with similar initial build dates (july 21st) have been advised there will be no delays. Their cars will be delivered in September.  Also, I am really pissed that my car will sit in an open lot for 30 days. I don't drive my car in the rain or drive it at night. To have my car sit outside for a month is unacceptable.enlightened

    At least it won't sit in the hot sun for a month - much worse than rain

    Shouldn't take that long.

    Ship passage is like 2 weeks from Germany to Long Beach. Then perhaps a week in customs.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    I drove my car in the rain once.  It did not melt after all. 😎

    It isn't ideal but I clay and use iron Decontamination solution(e.g. Iron X)  on all my new cars. You'd be surprised how much iron gets embedded into the paint of a brand new car anyway.  Then a light polish.  Paint looks and feels better then when it was delivered this way.

    They are covered in White foil for most parts and will be prepped at destination - so nothing to worry about

    Nick, no tracking the GT3 ever I presume either? no going anywhere were you have to park under the sun? I'm curious to the mentality behind this. Its not a delicate and irreplaceable collector's old classic used for expositions and concours', its a normal modern road car, it can be fixed, painted, the change in resale value whether you do drive it in rain or night is arguably small to us, a few thousands maybe, etc. Surely its more worthwhile to drive as you want, when ever you want, like its meant to?

    I know a guy with a 991.1 GT3 RS and a Mercedes AMG GT S like that. We argue all the time about the purpose of such cars and they always make fun of me because my cars are dirty (actually, they never really were when we met but a water stain(!) here and the remains of a dead insect there and the car is...dirty Smiley). They actually spend more time cleaning these cars than actually driving them. Smiley
