     Beyond words...


    So I would like to know what all those colors are that are hanging on the walls!

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     The blue car is perfection. 


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    easy_rider911:

    Looks like platinum silver to me.


    What is the difference between Platinum Silver and GT Silver color-wise?


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    GT silver has more of a blueish tint in it whereas Platinum has a more gold/brown tint.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     The interior fit&finish is just pure perfection! Haven't seen anything even close to it...


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    ISUK:

    GT silver has more of a blueish tint in it whereas Platinum has a more gold/brown tint.

    I would say more greyish tint. Blueish is the Polar Silver, rather.

    I think this type of two-tone brown/cocoa interior (Lars MB pic) would look great in a GT Silver 991...without the wood steering wheel of course.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Car is definitely Platinum, as confirmed by Porsche Exclusive representative at this display room.  Interior is expresso with all sorts of goodies.  Will post more info soon.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    These pics are in the Exclusive Salon adjacent to the full display hall. It was a sanctuary from the frenzy outside, and a chance to really study and appreciate the car.  I will be posting my overall impressions of the full presentation as I sort my pics out tonight, but for now I will add my impressions and pics to the information already so well posted by others regarding this Platinum Silver/Expresso 991 Carrera S.

    1.  The car was understated, tasteful, elegant, refined and gorgeous.  The car has to be seen in reality, not pics, to have its design completeness appreciated.  The rear design treatment is particularly attractive and successful.  The wider front wheel stance is clearly obvious.

    2.  The Sport Design package (front apron and ducktail spoiler) is a fine addition to the car, without looking tacky or racy.  The black painted Sport Techno 20 inch rims are fabulous.

    3.  The sunroof is not as successfully designed, but is not as bad as it looks in pics.  It is high quality and generally follows the descending shape of the roof line. Reportedly it now opens outboard to provide more headroom inside.

    4.  The rear lettering is still a bit much, but can be ordered as follows:  The bold squard Porsche lettering cannot be removed in any case, not even by a full lettering delete as can be ordered for example on a Cayenne.  But it can be the only option, or the Carrera S can be removed and the 991 lettering will then move to the middle under the square lettering, or the 911 lettering can be removed with the Carrera S remaining under the square Porsche lettering.

    5.  The extendable rear spoiler, which will extend above the ducktail, is not yet available as an option, nor is deviating stitching.  Stay tuned for availability sometime next year.

    6.  The full expresso interior is replete with Exclusive goodies, from brushed aluminum door and dash panels, to leather covered seat belt lock ins, to leather covered vent slats, etc.  Abandon hope and funds all ye who enter here. 

    So much for this post...


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     Thanks wonderbar!

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     Thanks for the post! Espresso with aluminum is a clear winner. It reminds me of the 918 RSR. That would be the route I'd take for the interior!

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    front apron pic (sport design option).  Note additional intake slats and painted lip.  Another option not shown--bottom lip itself will have small intakes (aerokit option I belive, and am not sure if aerokit is available yet).frankfurt 001 debut 071.jpg


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Pjd, not sure where your post was filmed, as the Frankfurt presentation today was much different.  The car presented was dark blue metallic, and preceeded by a stunning 1966 911 (grey, red) driven by Walter Rohrl.  See pic below.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     I think it was also in Frankfurt, along with the other cars from VW group (you can see a vw up and a bugatti).

    Maybe they did 2 presentations

    above pic is of Mueller (sp.?) at ease during opening presentation.  See following pic for contrast under press questioning...frankfurt 001 debut 061.jpg

    frankfurt 001 debut 053.jpgFinal pic tonight--got to get some sleep.  More tomorrow.

    This pic is of only half of press crowd at debut.  The presentation was a bit sensational, but no one could say it was underfunded.  Big dollars are coming from somewhere.  This new Porsche stand was 2400 square meters, almost 1000 square meters bigger than Porsche's older Frankfurt stand.  This was academy award stuff...

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Thanks for all the pics.

    I think if I was to order a new 991, I would just have Porsche on the back if I cannot have Carrera S.  It sounds like the new model distinction is about appealing to a wider audience other than those who know the difference between a 964, 993, 996, 997.1 etc..  Having 911 on the back seems a bit naff to me.

    The first (silver) one was presented at Volkswagen Group´s presentation prior to the show, the second (blue) car was shown on Porsche´s own press conference.
     


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

     To my mind the blue car looks better - the duck tail is not for me. Looks a bit "after market add-on" or GT3 wannabe. My $0.02. The wheels on the silver car look fantastic - would love to see them on the blue car


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    pics of 20 inch sport techno wheels unpainted and painted.  Latter is much better, imho..frankfurt 001 debut 032.jpgfrankfurt 001 debut 027.jpg

    Just for fun, here are what 1967 911 mirror placement, rims and rear badging looked like 44 years ago (as seen on 911 at Frankfurt show).frankfurt 001 debut 078.jpgfrankfurt 001 debut 077.jpgfrankfurt 001 debut 073.jpg
