    Which livery for my 997 GT3 ?

    Hi guys, as I decided to skip an upgrade to a 991 GT3 (at least for now....) my good old 997 GT3 is about to get some tech upgrades (parts replacement after 40 tkm track duty is due anyway for safety reasons / peace of mind) and to make the "new car" experience complete I also like to add some race livery (base colour Arctic Silver will stay). I wouldn't do this on a daily driver but my car is a track toy only (save for the rare on road transits from the Eifel mountains to the Ardennes mountains Smiley).

    I narrowed it down to two options (as shown in the pics below) and I appreciate your thoughts Smiley

    Option one (I'd skip the Martini like emblem though):

    Slightly different Martini livery:

    The Martini colours seem to go well with Silver also:

    Option two (more rare colour combo and of course my car unfortunately won't transform into a RSR by using the livery Smiley):

    Re: Which livery for my 997 GT3 ?

    I am not sure what the base colour of the RSR is (looks darker than Arctic)  and the side panel/door  design probably would not work that well on a standard GT3. Maybe this design for the side panels/door would work better ?

    Re: Which livery for my 997 GT3 ?

    Out of the two Martini liveries I like the second one (918-style) better.

    But all told, I would choose something like the silver-white-yellow GT3 RSR. Perhaps the width of the stripes should be a bit narrower, more like the stripes on a 458 Speciale (hard to find a good pic of a silver one, but I guess you get my point).

    Re: Which livery for my 997 GT3 ?

    How about only the central striping over the front bonnet, roof and rear decklid, and leave the sides alone?
    I love the martini livery, but think the livery on the sides and the fenders might be a bit too much...

    Hi,

    from my own "experience" I would always opt for laaaarge strips (like there are shown above) flowing from the front to the back. Further, I think that the stripes on the sides should start like in the "Martini"-pic from below the front lights and could end before the rear wing. Yellow or orange in combination with white and silver (which is the color of your car) work nicely...each to his own, but I do attach one shot from my car just to show how silver works...1398320415212training  2012  1.JPG


    Re: Which livery for my 997 GT3 ?

    Although I like the Martini design Porsche very much there is one big problem: How many times did you see a Martini 924/911/944/Cayman? Exactly, several times, too often.

    Gulf Porsches share the same problem.

    It is a matter of personal taste, but in my eyes the most beautiful Porsches is the hippie 917 and the Salzburg design (red one). I loved the grey 918 prototypes with the hippie camouflage.

    If I had a weekend toy I would try something like the hippie design.

    If I had to choose between option one or two: One with the silver body. Looks great. Don’t know if it works without MARTINI (could be replaced by “RENNTEAM”)


    Re: Which livery for my 997 GT3 ?

    Option 2.

    Bridggar his your reserved britishness coming out? Surely if you are going to drive a glorious machine like the GT3 on track and on those special driving days you want to feel the glory of the experience and history. And celebrate this in style with the martini colors! 

    Having said that I probably won't do it myself either - I am british after all blush

    Didn't mean any offence - just not my cup of tea. I think sponsorship is reasonable and on commercial vehicles I can see the value. But paying yourself?? yes

    Thank you very much, Rossi Smiley The Speciale looks great. I understand where you are coming from - here is an example with narrower stripes: IMO  nice design also - sporty but not too much (at least for a track toy)1398617865754image.jpg

    Salzburg and Hippie design looks great, though I am not sure how  the design looks after "transfering" it to the 911 shape. Maybe my foil "artist" can do a photoshop.

    I also could replace the MARTINI lettering with the christian name of Mrs. PJ - also starts with M and ends with I Smiley

    Yes, central stripe only is also still an option (just with the GT3 lettering an stripe on the sides) - maybe  a la 918 RSR1398617916711image.jpg1398617916703image.jpg1398617916720image.jpg

    Looking good ! Do you have a larger pic of your avatar to have a closer look at the rear of your GT3 ?

    No offence taken Smiley The lettering (may it be Martini or any other) is not important for me - it's more about the stripes and some colour Smiley
