    We appreciate your bling expertise!!!  It's a major sub industry for Porsche.

    Given its origin (2.7 RS) also existed with a Touring package, I think it's acceptable. Visually I love it.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    The 1972 911 2.7 Carrera RS  M472 Touring was equipped standard with the Ducktail but could be ordered with the wing delete option (a quite seldom occurency). As such if Porsche calls this 991 GT3 "Touring" , my guess that it would be historically inaccurate (for what is worth). 

    This is how the wing delete on the 911 2.7 Carrera RS , looked like. Very cool and understated , notice no scripts either which were also an option at that time.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Thanks m4ever, I didn't know that.

    I don't think Porsche will "name" the GT3 Touring anything. It's only an option within the GT3 configuration, same as the Clubsport package. Plus, you can delete the model designation anyway. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Looking forward to a selection of interesting colour options for the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring edition...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    I read on a german forum, that PTS will be available without restriction in 2018. Can someone confirm?

    Looking forward to a selection of interesting colour options for the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring edition...

    Hopefully it will also be available for the non-Touring, as I still can't decide on my colour choice.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    I believe I read that Louise Piech's RS and her son Peter's RS were both Sportomatic.  When your name is Porsche or Piech you are not encumbered by what other people think your Porsche should be.  Ferry's was a ducktail and script delete in a light green metallic if memory serves.

    How Dave Gordon's GT3 would look today (same spec) Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Just got word that my .2 GT3 PTS was approved.  However looks like April/May build with June/July delivery. Not so bad since I am still enjoying my .2 C2S. I was pretty hot for the Touring Package but rumors seem to have it morphing into more than just a wing delete which doesn't appear to be what I am seeking.  Well by the time I get fthe car all will have long been revealed. By the way went with 226 lindgrun aka chartreuse.  Acid green stitching and piping (18 way) on seat w/ acid green GT3 on headrests. Lot of people asking for carbon fiber for the black satin accents (CXX) but evidently no has been the consistent answer. Might look good, might be too much?

    'Chartreuse' is softer than Birch. This is how it is featured on the official site ('Ur-Elfer'): https://newsroom.porsche.com/de/christophorus/porsche-targa-farben-11175.html
