    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    lexs4:
    Blut Orange / Tangerine was listed as 'not available' on one of the more recent PTS documents for the 911.  I believe the reason given by someone on Rennlist was it was too similar to Lava Orange.  I was interested in getting it on the new GT3 as well.  If you find out that it is now allowed that would be fantastic. 

    What were the launch colors on the 997.1 RS? I loved both the orange and the green on that car...

    Nick,

    You will like the car in any color........CongratsSmiley

    Keep the gauges black and go for the CF interior trim, will match the seats and interior perfect!

    I am SURE that September can't arrive soon enough for you.

     

    Best of luck

    Looking forward to September. Fortunately I have a 2017 Targa to keep me occupied.Smiley

    Crayphile, odds are there will be a .2GT3RS. I have let my dealer know I wanted one but not certain that I do. I can always change my mind.Smiley

    No yellow after all? Congrats. That silver is also good.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Silber GT3 is very bland, better than black but still not suiting the sporty character of the car.

    Nick,

    You might consider CXX white wheels and a custom graphic wrap so you could do this:

    But the white wheels would be more true to this:

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Good ideas for Nick, Mike, a nice loud wrap, and another one for the targa. Sun is sticking with GT Silver on both.

    Hmm Mike now has me rethinking my order. I could order the silver which no one would notice and wrap with different colors whichever suits my fancy. The white wheels will make the car going even faster. smiley

    If you're going to wrap, I'd get White or Black and save the $750 on Silver paint...

    Get the color which is best for resale. 6 months down the line you will realize that having a track oriented coupe is wrong for the sunny roads in California. Like last time indecision

    Guards Red is simply the best color for 911, old and mordern ones. They should even be selling them in black white or any shade of silver Smiley

    You raise a good point. My question how many of you have the opportunity to use your cars to their stated ability.

    FWIW, I plan to use this car it was designed for. I'll take it to the Porsche track in LA occasionally and give it a work out.Smiley

    In which state?, cruising in track or competing? there are people who think they are good in track and then there are people who actually racing, there is a thin line between them, in which one ended up in gravel.indecision, I used to take a shit out of my car but I never ended up in gravel...,

    I didn't realize you can just show up with your own car there.  I thought the track was just for using Porsche's cars (either free when collecting a new car or with one of their expensive programs)??

    I think they want total control over the condition of the cars that run there...

    I believe Nick is referring to the Starbucks in the Porsche Experience Center.
