    @reginos thanks

    you can get silver exhaust but I chose to de chrome the windows which in turn makes the P O R S C H E script black and also the exhaust

    i might change The script to stain neodyme as per the wheels later

    Beautiful and charismatic car, whatever the details!!

    Re: 992 GT3

    Based on all the colors I have seen to date on the GT3, GT silver is the best color. That said, satin nerdy wheels is a no no.enlightened .Silver wheels would be more cohesive and highlight the exterior color. Rethink it.

    Re: 992 GT3

    @nberry totally respect your taste and I would be super happy with silver wheels.

    this is a new colour and described as a satin Champagne / rose gold type colour which I think would really set of the car and make it even more special

    its a bit of a risk as never seen them in real life - worst case I can =make them back to silver 

    I suspect ill love them as is often the way with brave moves

     


    Re: 992 GT3

    The satin neodyme colour is actually quite attractive in person. It's a new finish from Porsche and hence there are a lot of takers. It does go well with a lot of exterior colours.

    I got a tweak in my neck tilting it to see those pics the right way lol

    I'm a fan of the neodyme wheels, mostly in combination with the black, gentian blue, or crayon..... funky!

    I hesitated in making my comments but decided to offer my opinion. My issue with the wheels is they look contrived and detract form the beautiful exterior color on the GT3. The eyes will immediately go to the wheels and the observer will wonder...WHAT is he/she thinking?Smiley  They look out of place.

    I know need to go with your instincts and if you like them give them a try.Smiley

    Perfect specs . Only needs leather steering wheel column to make it complete.

    As for the color/rims, being a car that will be probably used as a sort of DD,  I would go for 1 or 2,  2 being a little bit  more special but having to live with the extra attention it will draw 

    Leather steering column, hmm, interesting. Have you tried that in real life? How is it? Otherwise thanks very much. Not easy

    I have ordered it now for the first time in my incoming GT4 RS, after it had been brought to my attention by someone who always checks this option, that when you drive you have the steering column right in front of your eyes. Do you want to stare at plastic or at leather ?   It is just a small cosmetic upgrade, just like the race teck sun visors which you ticked, and cheaper then those. It does look good, specially with deviated stitching .


    Re: 992 GT3

    I have always ordered leather steering column in all my ordered cars. 

    I may not always get leather sun visors, but the steering column, it's a must have for me. The little details that matters.

    Re: 992 GT3

    I like your options list but not your color choices.

    This is a Touring, shouldn't be too flashy maybe but a little bit of color can't hurt on such a car. Smiley

    Crayon would also be interesting but so is Shark Blue.

    I would stick with the black wheels, just my opinion.

    Can't wait to see your car. Smiley

    Re: 992 GT3

    Anybody seen Shark Blue in person?  Opinions?  Too flashy?  Would you choose silver or black rims with it?


    Re: 992 GT3

     

    @wonderbar yes I’ve seen it at Porsche reading - one of the press cars- in fact i can send you a video but you’ve probably already seen loads

    if I’m honest - and people will probably shoot me down but I am not excited with the colour. I just think people got excited as it was launch colour. Colour is so subjective.

    i personally would go for silver wheels and again, just my taste.

    Re: 992 GT3

    I think Shark blue is gorgeous, but I'm obviously biased.  It's darker than Mexico Blue, but lighter than say Voodoo blue.  Changes quite a bit depending on the lighting.   A buddy just picked up his Racing Yellow GT3, looks good, but prefer Shark blue...

    It does get A LOT of attention.  I get pictures of my car showing up on local car spotting pages pretty frequently.  Oh and silver wheels for the win.

    Re: 992 GT3

    I have seen it a few times at track events. It is a nice color but it is a VERY STRONG one. If you don't mind standing out a lot, enlightening the roads and parking lots then it will be a special color to have. If you don't want too much attention, don't take it. 

    Silver wheels for a softer look. Black wheels for a more sporty look.  Both fit well  this this car and color. 


    Re: 992 GT3

    I assume yellow or red stands out a lot more than shark blue.

    Re: 992 GT3

    Thanks everyone.  I have bought several cars from my dealer, but not GT cars, so I am low on the allocation list for now.  Also, GT3s are gong at way over MSRP.  I do have an allocation for a new GTS to spec in January, which I will probably take so I can have a car to enjoy. Shark Blue should look good on a GTS as well.

    Also, my dealer says he can probably get me a GT4RS later next year, so am considering that too. So many choices, but so much fun.


    Re: 992 GT3

    Wonderbar:

    I've observed and evaluated the Shark Blue at the importer's showroom several times, when I was in the process of ordering a Macan. It is not as conspicuous Miami, Mexico or Riviera blue for example but it still attracts extra attention.

    On the GT3 with the wing I don't think it would add more flash than it already exists. On the Touring IMO it is not suitable given that the raison d'etre of the Touring is to get rid of the wing in order to attract less attention and blend with the surroundings.

    BTW it might be the launch colour but Shark blue is not a magnificent shade of blue,so that someone will miss much if he doesn't choose it.

    For me silver wheels all the way. The attractive design of the GT3 wheels is totally concealed when painted black

    The two 992 Gt3 Tourings I saw were dark grey and black, with silver wheels

    Understated but nice specsSmiley


    Re: 992 GT3

    Re Shark Blue: saw it in person; was disappointed. 

    Based on pictures, I expected it to be similar to Maritime Blue but with less violet. Instead, it turned out to be a harsher blue. The picture above with the car in the garage is a more accurate rendition.

    If you can get a GT4 RS you should take it. Amazing, and could well be a “keeper”
