    Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    I am planning on keeping it simple, which I think suits the GT3 RS:

    A1/29 Black (with Orange Wheels and Insignia) / Black Interior (Non-leather)
    567 Top Tint Winshield
    P74 Bi-Xenon
    595 Roll Cage in Black
    XMJ Console Carbon Fiber
    CGA Head Light Washers in Exterior Color (Exclusive Option)

    I was wrestling with a couple of choices:

    Black or Green. I eventually decided on Black as I think there is a risk I'll get bored with the Green color after a while. Also I think Black will be a bit more stealth instead of being known as the guy with the bright green Porsche... But it is not an easy decision. I am not interested in Arctic Silver or Orange.

    A/C delete option. This would save around 20kg, but I decided to go for the comfort of A/C since I am not good enough of a driver to probably appreciate the weight saving.

    I decided to get the roll cage in black instead of the standard orange color. Simply think a black roll cage will look better inside a black car.

    I decided against PCCB mainly because of cost, but also because my dealer (himself an RS owner) recommended to not get them due to replacement cost and because he doesn't feel a very big difference and so I doubt that I will either.

    I went with Carbon Fiber center console because I just don't like the plastic look of the standard one.

    I'd be happy to get any suggestions that you might have!! Many thanks.

    It's a beautiful spec.
    Keep thinking about Green though, it is more emblematic of the RS spirit, in my opinion, than straight black.

    I'm curious to see what the Orange wheels look like?

    Good choice with the AC, you have to be pretty good (and in shape) to feel 20 kilos

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Fantastic spec.

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    I am still trying to figure out WHY they don't go with the white and colored graphics.....Now that is a CLASSIC look as having a 73RS with red script and a 997RS with red script would be a perfect book couple of cars.....IMHO

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    green is fantastic, but black is safer, especially when trading in... I'd go with orange roller cage... it'll livin up your interior, plus great combo with carbon interior parts... I drove a 997 4S with a power kit, and PCCB, and I gotta say they are AMAZING... you better be a track-day person by the way, cause you're paying Turbo money for your car :-)

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Hi JFT,

    where did you get those detail information about possible RS-features?

    Did you receive it from your dealer?

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Many thanks for the advice everyone. I have changed the cage back to Orange in line with your input!

    I got the detailed information from the order guide (attached).

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Fantastic car! What is the base price in SEK?

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    I love your spec, but just as you may get tired of a green car, I would have the same feelings about orange wheels..

    Any possibility (Porsche Exclusive?) to get it with black wheels?

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Thanks

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Base price is SEK 1,304,000.

    Part of the reason of getting a black car is that this gives me the opportunity to paint the wheels black and remove side stripe (for an all black car) if I wanted to do that down the line. For now I am pretty excited that black wheels and side decals will look cool!

    Looks really cool. But the mirrow and sideplates (what ever they are) will also be orange. But as you say they can be all can be painted black again...

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Very exciting!!!

    Think a little bit more about the green..... Lots of black cars, not many green ones and with mat black wheels it would look stunning, but then, of course, you take a chance.
    I loved my green ZXR Kawasaki....

    I would not go for an orange roll cage. Keep tit black....just my 2 cent

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    lovely spec....when are you expecting it ?

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Thanks! I have asked the dealer to work against Oct 27 (I am anyhow in Germany and could do factory pick-up), but this is optimistic given I have October build slot.

    Re: Speccing the GT3 RS on Monday

    Just get the car.... No matter how it looks, this will be one of the best cars we've seen in a long, long, loooooooong time i expect.
