    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    very interesting that most would like an RS so that other people recognise you have one, rather than it's just one hell of a machine to own and who really cares what other people think im driving around in !!!!

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    I thought they weren't making the RS in white?

    I think the idea was not to show off to people what you are driving. Just merely trying to distinguish the difference visually

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    Mike, im sure you right, maybe i was being a bit narrow minded. for me, i prefer understated and think the black car looks great

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    To me the wing without the decals looks very strange. It makes the car look like a ' tuned' porsche.
    So the understatement ( which I am usualy a fan of ) becomes an overstatement of ' lower' car..

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    I saw this car on Sunday. The driver was in his late 50s, the sound of the car was great. He was going up and down in the roads of Monaco for more than an hour and a half! Great car and it has presence! I liked the fact that it is black, it makes it understated! The reason why I have bought all my Porsches in black...

    The reason you can be sure this is 100% an RS is this part. The bumper portrudes from the body and rearlight.
    This is only so on the wide body.



    I know the RS is wider, but what's the different in this part you circled?


    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    I love an orange RS... but I love the stealth cars just as much. I'm going to start a fund so you all can donate and I'll just get one of each

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    ludikrisspeed, I think you should be obliged o post at least 10 pics of your car... just to keep us hounds satisfied

    Just goes to show you, that while I would not kick that RS out of bed, black hides the aggressive details of the car. I think the 997 GT3 and RS look best in brighter colors for this reason.



    Funny, because the first thing I thought to myself when I first punched-up the thread was "hmmm, the black does a good job of hiding all that overly-busy and aggressive stuff going on up front and in back... That's the best looking GT3 I've seen!"... So, there's an ass for every seat!

    I love that one. When the black with charcoal wheel GT3 showed up last week, it was just too darth-vader-wood-stove black. But this car, with the bright wheels, is the cat's pajamas... IMHO...

    BTW, I also love your nuclear banana Frayed, the yellow with black wheels is smoking...

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wheels

    I'll take the green RS lads ,, with the stripes and the black rimms ..

    The GT3 , imho , should carry the brighter colours . It part of the parcel imo and its begs to be buoyant..

    Re: 997 GT3 RS Black without stripes and silver wh

    Extraordinary polarization of opinions........for me I have never seen a black-wheeled car I liked........rather than the wheels providing an omportant focus of the car's overall deieign, all one sees is a dark gap where the wheels should be, and the body hanging in space.

    This is the 1st RS I liked.....om a world where Bimmers exist with the numbers removed----who cares if someone thinks it is a simple Carrera like mine!

    The body kit and wing makes it obvious, alth' any one could trima carrera to look like that!....or any other 911 variant!
