    According to Kreso it's another Limited Edition (another thread).  I'm certain he's right, and perhaps he can say a little more about it.

    But using standard brakes. Odd for a limited edition.

    If it were a Limited Edition (e.g. Sports Classic) model, we might expect to see the final production version with the special indented roof and front hood from the 911 R, along with the option of a ducktail spoiler and rear seats! Smiley

    Very few of the colors look "wrong" so far Smiley

    Just sell me one and I'll take any color... I can wrap it blue later.Smiley

    Is it difficult to get an allocation in BC?

    too many rich regular customers here, and people trading 991.1 GT3 and RS will have first dip.

    we have 2 local Porsche dealers in Vancouver and Langley respectively, and another small one in Victoria island.

    all dealers together probably will get about 70-80 cars I guess.

    I personally know at least 10 people that want one.

    having said that, I probably can get one and there is no rush Smiley

    Grant...

    The dealer on Vancouver Island in Victoria is small but not compared to the Dealer in Fort Collins for sake of comparison, it is stand alone... I'm in the queue on the Island.

    Getting an allocation in Canada is equally as difficult as elsewhere.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    After anguishing on exterior color, interior color and PCCB's I decided today my color schemes. Went to the dealership and look at colors on cars and found that I liked the Guards Red. This was reinforced by the demo cars the journalist were using. I liked how it looked on the road. Once I made that decision, it was easy deciding the interior and opted out of the PCCB's and Bose.kiss

    I am uncertain about the white dials but for now they will remain.

    Why not go all in GR? Red stitching, belts and GR dials would complete the look very nicely methinks.

    I am doing the GR interior including the belts. I tried guards red dials and IMO they didn't look that great. They looked out of place.Smiley

    I looked at CR and I must tell you it's a rich color that belongs on a sedan or SUV. I see many cars from other manufacturers that have a similar color. The GR is a classic Porsche color which I have not seen on other models.

    Rhodium Silver Metallic with Silver wheels.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Hehe, GR with lightweight buckets, red brakes, red belts - sounds like the choice of a wise man kiss

    I'd stick with the black dials personally. I had white, or at least light silver on a Boxster once, and in a cabrio it makes a bit of sense, but in a darker interior like a GT3, not really IMO. Also red or yellow dials don't do it for me. The yellow tach in the 430 looks brilliant, but none of the coloured 911 schemes were as successful to my eye at least.

    That Rhodium pic looks pretty nice, but I don't think it really represents what the colour looks like in real life. It has a blue hue which I really don't like. GT silver much better I think.

    Good information on the dials. White dials stand out and overwhelm the rest of the interior. I have until June 23rd to decide. I'll keep playing with it.kiss

    Crayphile, will you keep your RS? Have you thought about spec's for the car? If so, what are they?

    Nick,

    You will like the car in any color........CongratsSmiley

    Keep the gauges black and go for the CF interior trim, will match the seats and interior perfect!

    I am SURE that September can't arrive soon enough for you.

     

    Best of luck

    Seems like the GT3 is going to be pretty loud for a daily driver.  Maybe they were not concerned with the possible later arrival of the Touring package which could restore some sound deadening material???yes

    This thing might be 50k lower priced than the 991R - but the resell value will be far apart from each other

    I will keep the RS until we know if there is a 991.2 RS and whether I can get an allocation for one. The most likely car to be diposed of is the GT4 (sorry @Bluelines Smiley). I am thinking Blut Orange for the GT3 , ceramics, and 918 seats. If they disallow the orange then it will a vibrant shade of green that I will try next. Still on the fence about the manual gearbox. I suspect I will go PDK as I have many other manual options.

    Blut Orange / Tangerine was listed as 'not available' on one of the more recent PTS documents for the 911.  I believe the reason given by someone on Rennlist was it was too similar to Lava Orange.  I was interested in getting it on the new GT3 as well.  If you find out that it is now allowed that would be fantastic.
