    GT silver turbo

    I'm seriously thinking about upgrading to the 2008/2009 turbo but need pics of artic silver and GT silver. does anyone have these pics you can post? they looks very similar to me with GT silver having a bit more metallic 'flakes'?!?!?

    Re: GT silver turbo

    Here's a picture showing the two together. GT on the left and Arctic on the right

    Re: GT silver turbo

    Man, that artic silver really looks nice!

    Re: GT silver turbo

    GT Silver has a lavender hue in certain lights...

    Had an '07 GT Silver 997TT....will likely opt for arctic silver CY08 997TT 2.0....

    Re: GT silver turbo

    Apex, haven't seen you post on here in a LONG time!

    Re: GT silver turbo

    GT looks a lot better. I like the depth of GT Silver

    Re: GT silver turbo

    I know it has been awhile, but I have been reading quite a bit and just enjoying everyones posts. You have been pretty active though.

    Re: GT silver turbo

    I really want to come down to the SEMA this year! Are you planning to go?

    Re: GT silver turbo

    Jason, funny that you should ask. I have never gone in all of the years that I have lived in LV, but was talking to some friends of mine about going last weekend. If you are interested I can make some calls.

    Re: GT silver turbo

    I have a few pics

    GT Silver is slightly darker...






















    Re: GT silver turbo

    Alex, I'm still very disappointed that you changed to silver.

    I'm not I feel vastly better about the 'upgrade' now. I literally cannot wait until December.

    ...I know you are just teasing BTW before you say

    I wanted something different to everyone else and yet something that at the same time looked classy and not 'in your face'. White with DAJ would have been my first choice, but it's a bit too flashy for where I live/drive and would get dirty very quickly.

    Arctic Silver is easy to maintain, and looks almost white in the sunshine. I will blend in with most of the other cars on the road so I won't stick out like a sore-thumb to Traffic Police. Plus I can have the DAJ option I wanted all along. Granted, it's not everyone's cup-of-tea, but I think it makes the car look more 'bullish' and less like a gaping fish with something sticking out of it's throat (the fog lights).

    The only things that I really would like extra would be Direct Injection, PSE, and a fixed PTM/PASM setup - but no way am I willing to wait another year for that (especially as the 998 will follow on a few years later).

    All in all... I am just SO excited!!!

    If I cared what the world needs I would buy a Toyota Prius instead of a Porsche 911 Turbo

    Re: GT silver turbo

    Alex, you're right, I was just teasing you. Silver is really a beautiful color on the 997TT. I'm just not really a big fan of DAJ though but hey that's MY opinion. It makes the 997TT look like it has teeth.

    Yes, I used to feel that way too. I thought it looked silly when first I saw the white ones.

    Looking at thousands of 'standard' Turbo pics each and every day for a year of so though has made me appreciate DAJ in a whole new light.

    So I guess it's an aquired taste

    Re: GT silver turbo

    The DAJ package is something I thought I would never consider - until I saw it in person on, of all things, a white 997tt. It looks much better in person. I had a friend with me who agreed. Funny how different our perceptions of these cars are from photos to real life.

    Re: GT silver turbo

    PS - it really doesn't look like teeth to me - I look at them every day (I'm a pediatric dentist).

    Re: GT silver turbo

    Who said I was talking about human teeth.

    Re: GT silver turbo

    GT looks better in person.

    Re: GT silver turbo

    thanks Alex
    looks stunning

    Re: GT silver turbo

    has any turbo owners orderd the mercedes benz iridium silver color as special paint? I'm thinking about that silver or artic or GT silver???

    Re: GT silver turbo

    I have owned both colors and really you must see these in person and then decide. There are too many variables comparing photos with both colors. Rather than state which color I prefer (which is meaningless to you) see if you can visit your local dealers and then make your choice. Here are 2 photos to view. Keep in mind GT Silver adds more than $2K to the price of your car. Gt silver is slightly darker in person and has larger flakes which jump at you when the sunlight hits it directly. The first photo is a 997S in Arctic silver. The second photo below is a 997 Turbo in GT Silver.
